Maybe I'll go and support Sabine. Now looking for cheap flight to Paris and a couchsurfer who can host me..

I like Lucie but she hasn't been playing that great lately so it's definitely a winnable match for Bine. Just hopefully she isn't too sad after this weekend. It's the possible 2R match against Niculesu that worries me. I saw her give Bepa a rough time at AO a few weeks ago. Hopefully she can reach the QF and get some revenge on Sharapova!

what a tough obstacle in the 1st rd.
And Lucie loves this tourn.
A QF against Masha would be g8...

BEST OF LUCK SABINE !!!

what a tough draw for Sabine! Lucie is nothing than a tough opponent she´s like a day and a night... she can play incredible and beat whoever and also lost to whoever... second roud Jarka or Niculescu, nothing easy one but I would prefer Sabine to play Jarka... Niculescu is a very unpleasant player to play against...

LOL! Potentially BFFs meeting between Sabs & Jarka - the ball wouldn't stand a chance!!

Hopefully she will reach R3 to have her next shot at Pova:)

If she will keep the rising tendency against her, (almost) nothing can go wrong:lol:
1st meeting 2 games 2nd 7 games 3rd 11 games 4th ??? games;) ... We`ll see:)

I hope she can do R3 as well but every game is different and you can´t count like this next time Sabine can be bugled :D but I know what you mean but it doesn´t work like this ;)

hopefully it's not a false excuse. She'd need to get over the FC debacle soon by playing not by mourning.
If she's really ill I hope she gets well soon and then shows her pleasant smile again

That's what I expected to read here...:lol:

For me it makes comprehenable Why she wasn't able to conclure the two matches although she won the first sets. If there is a virus inside, the power and concentration subsides when time goes on. And that she catched a virus is not surprising, most of my surrounding suffers of viruses and bacteria itm:help:

Get well soon, Bine-Babe:kiss:!

A shame, I mean, not unusual to get sick in winter and it was a hard weekend for her anyway, so better to rest now and be fit for her next tournament , but it just happens often in Sabine´s case, injuries, illness etc., I just hope that she stays fit then for the rest of the season, it won´t be easy for her anyway after that disappointing FedCup weekend with two defeats!

Yes, could be a genuine reason why she ran out of puff in the 2nd & 3rd sets of her matches. Or she could be suffering from Czechleftieitis...:devil:

Not unusual to get sick in a European winter but Sabine has more than her share of misfortune. Poor Bine :hug:

So she has the past FedCup sickness... just kidding:lol:

Coming from +30 Australia to -15 Germany, it`s not unusual to get sick!?
Handling about 50 degrees temperature difference certainly isn`t that easy.
But it would have been nice to see her facing Pova again:)
Hope she gets well soon.

As Petra fan, it was too much for her to go from Australia to Slovakia to Paris then to Middle East. The travel was too much of a grind.
Petra won Paris but completely flopped in Doha and withdrew in Dubai.

Indoor Paris is not very useful with Dubai, IW and Miami upcoming.
Strategic withdraw is not a bad thing. Sabine can rest fully and be ready for the bigger tournaments ahead.

I thank many players have the past tournament sickness :lol:

I think Mike meant it is usual to get sick coming through so many degrees or not? :D

I think a lot of the injuries, illnesses etc. have a lot to do with players coming from the harsh heat of the Australian Summer to the minus Winter temps of Europe. The WTA roadmap is so wrong. Paris should be towards the end of the year with Linz, Moscow etc. That's only one of the problems. Having Fed Cup so soon after AO is harsh, and don't even get me started on both the WTA and ATP slowing down courts and therefore causing more injuries to players. It's such a mess. There's a reason players are getting injured more than ever. :rolleyes: [/rant]

Oh, I must have missed that. Why are slow courts more dangerous? Can someone enlighten me?

Points are longer and players have to put more grind on their bodies to win. When I played tennis I hated to play on slow hardcourts and actually hurt my ankle pretty bad on the surface-- twice. There is a reason I don't play tennis anymore. :rolleyes:

But this article explains it pretty well: http://tennis.about.com/od/racquetsballsstringing/ss/slow-hard-court-pros-and-cons.htm
