View Full Version : Sabine's BFF on tour

Recently Jarka (Jarmila Groth) wrote this for WTA blog.

http://www.wtatour.com/blog/20110105/jarmila-groths-brisbane-blog-wednesday_2257191_2258525
...A few days ago on Twitter I congratulated Sabine Lisicki on her first round win in Auckland. I really like Twitter. It's a lot of fun. You can write things that are just going through your brain and read other people's tweets, and fans can find out what you do during the day too. I ask my fans if they like my dresses, my website, and things about them too, like what their favorite movies are. My fans are always very helpful! I hope I can reach out to more of them with it.

You can also communicate with other players on Twitter. Sabine has always been one of my best friends on the WTA - I call her Sunshine because she's always smiling, and so she makes me smile. Some of my other friends on the tour are Zakopalova, Cirstea... Anyway, unfortunately Sabine lost today, in three sets to Yanina Wickmayer, which is too bad for her. I hope she can come back to where she belongs in the rankings. Wickmayer is very tough though.

Goodnight... and check out my Twitter at http://twitter.com/Jarka_Groth!

I support 'Jarka' too and started to follow her on twitter. She is Australian I have to support the Aussie players.. she's a good friend of Sabine's so this makes me more interested in her matches too.

Funny, I was thinking about this topic recently, so may as well add to this thread. I too was curious to know who Sabine regarded as her best friends on the Tour.

I would have imagined somebody as adorable as Sabine would be friends with most girls on the Tour!! But you never know!!

However, as well as Jarmila above, who else is she best friends with?

I believe Tamira Paszek is one, I've seen tweets between them.

From a couple of Youtube clips, possibly Sorana Cirstea? They seemed to be hanging about together at the pre-Wimbledon party.

Sabine has mentioned Marion Bartoli as a good friend, & their hug at the net after their Wimbledon clash would suggest so.

And, of course, presumably Sam.

Anyone else?

Sabine is also good friends with fellow Germans Julia Goerges and Andrea Petkovic due to the Fed Cup, but her BFF certainly seems to be Jarka. I am hoping they will play doubles together one day, although I guess Sabs has a good thing going with Sam right now. I've told Jarka a couple of times on twitter I'd like to see them play together and she replied once that she'd like to one day.

Sabine just might be one of those people who ALWAYS can make a friend, which is so great for the girls on tour.

A certain Petkorazzi was apparently watching the end of Sabine's match on TV after her own practice at her upcoming tournament.

Following on from the previous post, Andrea tweeted Sabine to wish her luck vs. Serena (alas to no avail :( )

But a characteristically nice move by Petko. After watching Sab's victory vs. Radwanska, I though she might do.

Reading an interview with a then 18yr old Sabine, she mentioned being friends with the Radwanska sisters, having come through juniors with them. Presumably that friendship still stands.

After Sab's victory speech in Texas, guess we can add Aravane Rezai to that list. Avarane confirms this in a YT clip from Oct 2010 that I've seen, when she namechecks Sabine as a BFF. (BTW sorry to read about Aravane's troubles - now I know why she was so emotional about her tough year...another crazy WTA dad!!)

Oh, & Big Red the horse! :lol:

Perhaps Geekking can confirm, but I'll add Ipek Senoglu to this list, judging by the Istanbul'a Giden Yol videos (which I love by the way - Ipek is really good & gorgeous herself!). Also Ipek & Sabine in Dallas (just the cutest thing ever!) & the photos of the two of them at an ITF event in Michigan I think it was, where they were icicle fighting as it was still the bleak midwinter!

Ian Aberdon
Nov 6th, 2011, 08:35 AM
Daniela Hantuchova, seeing as Sabs confirmed this in her Bali blog. And of course Daniela tried out blind serving with Sabs in Cincy!

Mind you, as Sabs herself mentioned she has "lots of friends" on Tour (no surprise as she's adorably popular everwhere!) I probably should add most of the rest of the names on the Tour!! :lol:

Ian Aberdon
Jan 5th, 2012, 10:04 PM
Geekking talking about Petko, Marion & Sam loving Sabine on the other thread puts me in mind of this thread again.

I assume that if you have lunch with someone, they are a friend. I mean, you wouldn't lunch with your enemy would you? :lol:

In that case, Sabs was having lunch with Yanina Wickmayer last year, during the Dallas tourney I think. Sabs had a pic up of it on her Facebook. Looked like they were happy in each other's company.

That pleases me, as I quite like Wicky! :D

Sabine and Jarka both tweet less often than they used to anyway. They may chat more often through private means, rather than want everyone to read their conversations. If so then sad for me that I miss out on witnessing their beautiful friendship, because they appear very close and I've encouraged them in the past to play doubles together. Jarka once replied to me that she would consider it, but then Sabine struck up a pretty good combo with Sam and Jarka is with Bethanie MS. Still as far as I know they are very sweet friends off the court! :kiss::hearts::angel:

Was nice to see Sabs & Aga together. Sabs had mentioned they were friends but that was an interview going back to when she was 18 I think. I hadn't seen them together although I thought I saw a pic of them hanging around offcourt at the Stanford tournament last year, when Sabs beat her during her great run of form in the US swing.

but not 'emo' over nothing? have you read her AO press conference? (http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/news/interviews/2012-01-17/201201171326768984882.html) :eek:

Didn't see the whole thing actually until now but as I said she's been through a tough time. There's nothing wrong with being sensitive, maybe it's just her personality. She appears to be that kind of person. I suppose maybe it looks like she complains too much and that may seem silly because it's not a bad life being a pro tennis player, but I'm not judging her for it.

Well.. maybe they were friends..


..before Kerber killed her 2 times this year :devil:

but srs.thats just tennis. of course its competition but nobody can hate/dislike another player because she was better

being in one team doesn't implicate being friends. they compete against each other in team as well. and you know.. sabine was favourized in team and Kerber kind of underdog, she really wanted beat Sabine to be more important for team. and no matter what they say in post-match interview, because they wont say that they dislike opponent

I was watching that interview and Angie didn't say anything like that first, it was reporter who asked her something like "is it hard to play with good friend". And after he asked her that, she told that Sabine is her friend and its hard, but what she could answer for that kind of question? "im not friend with Sabine" ? She couldn't answer that way...
And I saw a lie in Angelique eyes when she answered for that quesion.

Really played poorly yesterday and lost my singles. Tonight I played with Maria Kirilenko dubs and we won 10:8 in the 3rd set tiebreaker!
