View Full Version : Lisicki: "The food poisoning was life-threatening"

Sabine spoke with a trusted reporter of the German newspaper "BILD".


How are you after the setback?

Lisicki: "Better, but China was a disaster and messed up my rhythm."

What happened?

Lisicki: "After the first match I've eaten meat and an hour later I felt sick during training at once. I vomited endlessly and had to go to hospital immediately, as five other (male and female) players on that day too. I was on a drip for hours."

Had this anything to do with your gluten allergy?

Lisicki: "No, it was something else entirely. The allergy has been suggested because no one noticed that also five other players had to go to the clinic. Coaches, physios, players - many got it. "

It was said that you were snatched from the jaws of death ...

Lisicki: "Yes, it was a life-threatening situation. The doctors have panicked when I landed in the hospital. I was extremly dehydrated, almost unconscious. As the doctors spoke to me, they were quite far away from me, at the end of the tunnel. But they were standing right beside me."

How did you come home?

Lisicki: "We called the airline and made sure that there was a bed in the business class for me."

Why does it take so long to recover?

Lisicki: "Because my energy level is extremely low. Everything is so exhausting, the whole body was drained. I was never in my life so seriously ill. Never!"

Of course, all food in China is dangerous. 1.3 billion people spend every day "at the end of the tunnel" because there is nothing safe to eat.

She's not overly dramatic, remember her match vs Vera at the French when she was stretchered off bawling her eyes out cause she got cramp, that's normal behaviour right?

Posting here to say that BILD is one of the least trustworthy sensationalist tabloid bullshit papers in existance, it's akin to taking The Sun, The Daily Mail or stuff like that seriously.

Just a heads up, obviously your own choice if you believe it or not, but I'm a bit sceptical, for sure. :unsure:

i heard that there's really nice food in marbella, so why would players bring their own food? :scratch:

"BILD" is usually very reliable when it comes to interviews.

She said in another interview that it was a mistake to play in Linz.

For the record, I commented after the news about Sabs pulling out of Beijing that there was - or seemed - to be a complete news blackout until she surfaced again in Linz. I know communication in China isn't always easy, but even so I thought it was a bit strange that there was no news at all. That told me it was pretty serious.

She clearly tried to play Linz as she didn't want to let people down, but equally clearly was not anywhere near ready. Then she pulled out of Luxembourg before it started due to the ongoing problems. Really she shouldn't have been at either.

If Sabs said herself it was life threatening, then I don't doubt her. But I am aware it is Bild, & that it is a German tabloid. Like tabloids the world over,they tend to exaggerate in order to sell copy.

But if Sabine has been quoted accurately, then I have no reason to disbelieve her.

As for GoofyFuck, well his posts say more about him than I ever could. :facepalm:

Well....

I don't really care when she gets a flu or food poisoning or anything, I don't know her and I don't like her.

But that doesn't mean I'm not curious what she has to say about it herself, how she experienced it.

I just found they way she experienced it very dramatic .
And I felt I had to react to people that relate it to Chinese people, tennistournaments, food in general etc...

"trusted" means trusted by her. The reporter is Sebastian Kayser who is part of the Berlin local editorial team and mainly covers Sabine for the local and national parts of the sports section of "BILD". He is definitely the sports reporter who is closest to her and made several interviews with her. He's a major source of information.

It has to be said that Petkovic and Goerges have a friendly relationship with "BILD" as well, as a mass circulation newspaper like it is important for any kind of broader public attention when you have only small TV coverage of your sport in Germany.

Understandable when you had a career-threatening injury.

I'm starting to think Ms. Boom Boom Bine is a bit of a hypochondriac.

In fact she's usually very reserved to talk about her injuries, she never really explained what happened to her ankle in 2010. That makes her statement so striking.

I sort of wish it was a dubious article, because the phrasing is way over the top. Being disoriented while being dehydrated and sick is sort of a standard thing. She's describing these symptoms as much bigger trauma then it was.

If it was truly life threatening, playing Linz wouldn't just be a mistake, it would be impossible. If you have a severe gastrointestinal disease, it takes a full week to recover just to resume every day life, never mind full physical activity.

She may not have been 100%, but she surely did some physio, or practice being on court as well. If she was able to do these things, and continue on to compete in the match, while still being able to stand after a life threatening gastro problem, it's impossible.

Perhaps, it sounds more adequate in German?

very well said.

and no, in doesn't sound more adequate in german, the OP's translation is similar in tone. the title of the article is even more extreme ("Ich sprang dem Tod von der Schippe"). but that is exactly the kind of re-phrasing by that silly newspaper which can lead to a more dramatic expression.

I don't think Sabine was exaggerating about this if she was in hospital for days and vomiting, it could have been life threatening if not attended to. I think people are harsh on Sabine, she may seem to be emotional and exaggerating at certain times but some of these comments really upset me. I still love Sabine, maybe a little less than I did once when she talked to me on twitter but she's a good person! and I don't know how I would've dealt had something more serious happened to her :sad: I wonder if some of you people have any compassion for others.. We'll see how you react if you get serious food poisoning hey??
