she needs to play good from first round on, but it's a doable draw up to 3rd round.

Are you trying to jinx her before she even hit one ball???! :lol:

Here's how you positive-jinx someone: "I expect Sabine to lose in the first round getting double-bagelled by Erakovic ." (Now she will win the tourney. ;))

No, agree with you. Doable. But then again. It's Sabine and she's been out for over a month.:p
Let's just hope for some good matches.

Good draw for Sabine!
I mean, not sure if she can beat Erakovic, that will be already difficult as Sabine usually doesn´t come back strong at all after injury breaks but she will have her chances at least as Erakovic is nothing special!
Would be great for her if she could get a 2nd or even a 3rd match here in Rome, most important thing is that she gets 100% confident again with her ankle anyway, we´ll see what she can do! :)

Hopefully Sabine comes back strong and finds her form quickly.
Her first two rounds are very winnable but given she was injured going deep here doesn't matter that much.
Good luck Sabine :cheer:

Indeed hopefully she finds her form from the first round. Good luck :rocker:

I just hope she will start to find her confidence and form again, cause Roland Garros is getting closer and closer. Thank God she'll play Strasbourg too :) Ill be very happy if she'll win some matches here against Erakovic and Gajdosova, I think (Wickmayer is in awful form). If she'll survive to Li, it would be fantastic :) As you told, Erakovic is nothing special, especially on clay. I watched her 1st round vs Kvitova in Madrid. Petra attacked her 2nd serve in BRUTAL style and was just some 2 classes better. I think Sabine should do the same. Good luck sweetie! :cheer:

For a change I will try it being pessimistic this time, too. Terrible! Not sure to be excited or even more afraid looking forward to her first match vs. erakovic. :shrug:

If she can win two rounds...
and looking forward: a miami rematch vs. Na Li would be great!

Hello from Italy :-) I arrived in Rome and had my first hit today. It feels so good to be back on the court and at a tournament! The draw is done and I'm playing vs Erakovic in the first round.
Believe it or not it's my very first time to Roma. Looking forward to staying here :-)

:cheer:

Of course I want Bine to go far and gain confidence boosting wins although I'm not overly optimistic everything will click right away. Mainly just want a run now free of injuries/health concerns

Sabine will play doubles with Peng Shuai vs Camerin/Knapp

Hm first round looks not bad, but we'll never know how Sabine plays after a injury. Livescore it will be again, I guess :rolleyes:

I don't know what to expect, but I hope at least one victory (maybe 2, depends on the result from round 1) and then a few more in the next tournament :)

Ziva
May 13th, 2012, 02:07 PM
first round will either be a disaster or a win in three sets, i can't imagine her winning it in two after the injury.

Hm ok only livescore again. But for me it's not bad because I can't see that match tomorrow. Good luck Sabine :bounce:

A happy hello from Roma :-)
Today was a really windy and quiet cold day. Still I had a good hit and I can't wait to go on the court for my match. I'm playing second match after 11o'clock on court 2 vs Erakovic tomorrow.
I'm looking forward to playing & hope to see many of you out there :-)

i don't think she'll get any tv coverage until she faces (i wish) Li Na in R3

We wait so long for Bine's comeback only for her to go out in R1 v some Kiwi player for godsakes... Oh well this season just isn't playing out the way we'd hoped at all. Still I have faith it will change. Hurry up grass season!

Well, some poster saw the match of Sabine and just said that she was really really bad, serve wasn´t a weapon and tons of errors, especially with her fh and Sabine herself wasn´t satisfied with the match as well obviously:

Hi everyone, after fighting for 2:40h I lost by one break in the 3rd set. I made to many wrong choices on my shot selection & my movement isn't where it should be yet. I'm very disappointed but happy that I'm healthy! This way I can keep on practicing & improving on the things needed! Thanks for all your support!

well, as she said herself, she has to stay healthy, has to keep practicing and hope for some really good draws in Strasbourg and RG to get a few wins there. Important now that she gets some confidence back at least and that she just has a few matches before the grass season starts, whre she just should try to defend as many points as possible. Good thing is that she will be seeded quite high at RG and Wimbledon, I hope that she can use that advantage and somehow can improve!

i will not take her ranking too seriously, it seems there's equal chance that Bine loses to no. 1 or no. 100 in 2012, we just don't know :help:
