mmm the match started out high quality i thought, then dellacqua started to make heaps of errors and lisicki made winners
but casey choked at the end...1 point in 3 games

This was the first time i'd seen Lisicki, and I was very impressed.

She did 12 aces and won at least the last 8 points. She stayed confident and energetic the whole time and fought very well especially in the 3rd set. Her groundstrokes are very strong, I think one day she will make it to the top 20 at least.

Her post match interview was very nice too, she has a big smile and had a very positive vibe. I really liked what I saw of her!

Bad luck Casey :hug: She didn't play badly, she just needs to work on her 2nd serve and cut down the errors, maybe work on a bit of footwork, and she'll be dangerous at the AO again.

Both girls displayed poor play on the important points, but it looks like Sabine played the most important points better ;). I liked what I saw from her, especially her first serve and forehand.

Bad luck Casey, but she let her opponent back into the match and this is the result.

This was the first time I'd seen Lisicki and I was also very impressed. I admired her for loads of self-belief and never give up.

Sabine Lisicki:

Ivanovic's grunt
Ivanovic's come ons
Sharapova's ex racket

Itīs so nice seeing her winning this first match. I never expected that, to be honest.

Itīs even nicer to say her perspective against Shaughnessy is way better.

Maybe Germany can underline the rightness of them being there at least. Not to dream about more at this point.

But can anyone PLEASE name a live stream for Hopman Cup for the mixed?! Would be huge seeing it in Germany in about 2 hours or so from now.

Casey got a bit too defensive at the end of the match, but Savine desrved it anyway because she was clearly going for her shots and executing a lot better.

Good first match Casey, hopefully you can win your next match and put in a good showing against Cibulkova.

I wasn't a fan of Lisicki's at the start of the match and wanted Casey to win but I'm starting to become a fan of Lisicki now. Power, power and more power and a nice person too what more could you ask for she's down in my players to watch list this year that for sure if Lisicki can harness that power game of hers she will be top player in few years time and I've neve seen anyone hit hard volley from down around their knees like she does. Well done Sabine. Casey good luck for next match. :)

Germany defeats Australia! 2-1 in the mixed, how proud I am and how happy I am that these individuals seem to njoy themselves in what they are doing!

Now go all the way Germany to defeat USA!!!

Such a dissapointing loss for Casey. Hopefully she will rebound in her next match.

Sabine reminds me a little of Maria in terms of the way she competes/fights and realy pumps herself up.

That's the first time I've seen her play and I was impressed. Once she gets a few more big matches under her belt she'll get even better.
