With Sabine not able to defend her title in Dallas, it's onwards to New York City. I'm pretty excited! Hopefully no injuries, or rust and her serve makes it's way to the Big Apple with her.

Auf geht's, Bine! :bounce:

Her start in New Your is still endangered. Still no sign of her about her health or something... Don't know why, but I fear the worst :sobbing:

Let's hope not. She has some serious points to defend no? If my memory serves me correctly she reached the 4th round right? Or am I totally making that up?

Edit: Just checked-- yep, reached 4R last year.

Sabinator.
Aug 22nd, 2012, 03:15 PM
4th round of GS is quite a good amount of points. In Sabine's case, defend of these points will be very difficult.

my thoughts, Cirstea in first round of a slam is never good, H2H is not good aswell, if i remember right.

Michael!
Aug 23rd, 2012, 04:37 PM
H2h is awful, she never won against Cirstea but often choked!
Tashkent final she had MPs, if I remember right, then last year she served for the match and lost and third time she had to retire, so...:lol:

Anyway, Cirstea is :facepalm: herself, never know what u get, same with Sabine, I expect an ugly match over three sets but sure, could be that Sabine goes out.
Tatishvili or Foretz on the other hand are both more than beatable if Sabine should win :angel:

edit: possible 3rd round vs Görges :lick:

lets be optimistic. Maybe the brainless moron who cant keep a ball in play version of cirstea will show up. She should win her second round if she gets past the first round and then julia has a horrible record in 3rd rounds

so i could see her defending her 4th round..but maybe im being to optimistic

Oh no...Sori and then Julia...I always hate it if some of my faves play each other :sobbing:

It's good news for Bine though regarding R1, on a bad day (which are common) Sori is beyond brainless and will lose to absolutely everyone.

Mike81
Aug 24th, 2012, 01:25 AM
OMG Out of all the possible combinations my two favourite players are drawn with eachother!

Bine's never beaten Sori, but in a slam is the best time to change that stat. I suppose if Bine's lost then atleast it wouldn't be too devastating for me but really I care about Bine's career more than Sori's and Bine really needs the points and to win a few rounds.

Wow -- the two most unpredictable players on court "13". :devil:

For both of these players, how they are feeling at the moment means more than who is on the other side of the court. I won't be surprised by anything. I'm just glad I'm not the bookie who has to set the odds for this match.:confused:

Hopefully Bine has been able to put in the work and her injury won't be a factor.

Andy_Murray_88
Aug 27th, 2012, 08:39 PM
Really disappointing to see her go out first round, I'm guessing that's quite a few rankings points lost?

I guess she wasn't really hard court ready after picking up a few injuries lately but I still expected her to scrape through a few rounds.

I was thinking while watching the match how Sabine always seems to give you a 3 set roller coaster, she never seems to comfortably steamroller her opponents like the top players can in early rounds of tournaments. If she's going to be top 10 and a grand slam contender she's going to have to get more consistent, saving her energy for the later rounds of tournaments, although this is obviously hard given the amount of injuries she seems to regularly pick up, its like she's always trying to regain her form and then another one comes along .

"I have today for the first time played pain-free, but easy to train enough. Since Wimbledon I had a stomach muscle injury without knowing someone. But Olympia is only every four years, I wanted to play at any cost. There shall be no be an excuse, but it just lacked the time up to the U.S. Open. surcharges I could train it again. But I am a fighter and wanted to try it, "said Lisicki.

"I'm disappointed, but actually I have played the points right now. Only the last ball I have not played to the end, often from minimal to almost slyly. Because simply lack the training and matches, then comes back," said the 22-year-old.

Das ist doch blabla...schließlich konnte sie bei Olympia auch ganz passabel aufschlagen und spielen. Frag mal die anderen Top Spielerinnen, ob die alle schmerzfrei sind. No pain no gain! Ich finde sie hat sich in den letzten 6 Monaten sehr verändert. Wenn sie wenigstens knapp verloren hätte, hätte keiner was gesagt, aber ihre Einstellung und/oder ihr Umfeld ist zur Zeit absolut unprofessionell! :facepalm:

Da sie meine absolute Nummer 1 im WTA Pool ist, tut es wirklich weh, das anzusehen...
Bleibt nur die Hoffnung, dass sie den Schalter für 2013 irgendwie umgelegt bekommt ;)

That doubles scoreline looks good, didn't expect it. Maybe I can still hope for a big doubles run? get her confidence and match fitness back a bit with that. I love Bine so much :hearts: and I really have been going through withdrawals. Her year peaked with the win over Sharapova and I wasn't able to watch much of her Olympics matches and the loss to Cirstea was on a dodgy stream at 2 am for me and then it rained, I went to sleep and got up and found out she lost. Give me something please Bine.

Aug 31st, 2012, 01:06 PM
I understand you Mike. We all want the best to our star :hearts: I hope her gain confidence and power after these doubles, cause EVERY single minute spended on a court for Sabine is a milestore for the ending tournaments of the season. She must fight right now for the seed in AO, cause she's on the edge. I really hope in Tokio and Beijing (:unsure:) we'll see compeltely other and better Bine :) But still health is the most important thing...

maybe she can have a good run here and have a good end to her season anyway

that why i'm worried about another injury from the doubles in the open, that would be totally catastrophic, even though she's little over 200 pts to defend towards next season, being unseeded at grandslam would mean another possible early exit at melbourne

tbh i highly doubt the victory in doubles would add anything to her confidence in singles, except for fun, which she always has;)

Hat richtig Spaß gemacht das Match gestern anzuschaun, auch wenn Sabine ab dem zweiten Satz nicht mehr viel zu tun hatte. Die Russinnen haben so gnadenlos konsequent immer nur Peng angespielt, die tat mir richtig leid, mit ihrer lädierten Schulter....:tape:Aber die haben die chinesische "consistency" (chinesische Mauer am Natz) unterschätzt.

Schön, wie Sabine immer wieder versucht hat, mit ihrem kindlichen Enthusiasmus Stimmung in ihr team zu bekommen. Sie sind ein gutes Team, auch wenn man Sabine in manchen Situationen ansieht, dass ihr eben die Erfahrung im Doppel fehlt. Gegen die tschechischen Champs wirds schwer, aber vielleicht hat Hlachkova ja noch den doublebagelblues :lol:

Scheinbar spielen sie heute nicht, so darf Sabine bis Mittwoch in NYC bleiben...hat ja auch was;) ...und wird damit vielleicht letzte Deutsche im USO draw :lol:

Sabine didn't appear to be aware of it either or even the rule that you had to actually use the bathroom. When she was pleading her case before Lynn Welch, she merely did handwashing gestures with her hands, assuming that it would be ok to use the break just for handwashing.:scratch:

Zu blöd! Nur zwei matches auf dem Grandstand?!? Zumal es wahrscheinlich die letzte Möglichkeit ist, sie in FM 2012 spielen zu sehen. Mir ist ehrlichgesagt egal, ob ich sie allein oder mit einer Partnerin spielen sehe. ;)

Aber ich habe gerade mal den Wetterbericht angesehen: Sieht ganz schlecht aus...da wird der Grandstand wohl für wichtigere Matches freigehalten ;)

Ich würde ihr vorschlagen das Doppel abzusagen, aber in Florida und Europa ist das Wetter auch nicht besser und geht ja auch um ein paar Dollar, falls sie irgendwie gewinnen würden, wovon ich aber nicht ausgehe.

Dass ihr Doppel nicht auf einem der drei großen Plätze angesetzt wurde, kann ich ja noch verstehen. Aber warum werden auf dem TV Court 13 nur Juniorenspiele und nicht die restlichen Viertelfinalspiele im Damendoppel angesetzt? Das ist wirklich lächerlich!

It's surprising to see how consistent her doubles performances are, yet her singles results are very up & down. I wonder if Sabine needs a sports pyschologist? Many top athletes seek help from professionals, who try to solve demons between the ears. When Sabine's playing doubles she gains energy and confidence from having somebody next to her, but struggles with singles when she's out on her own. I might be talking absolute garbage, it's just a personal observation that she has mental issues to overcome before she maximises her true ability

Echt? Ich nicht, wenn man bedenkt wer ihre Gegnerinnen sind...;)
