this one could either be a beatdown for venus or a 3 set nailbitter, sabine isnt scared of these matches so if she gts into it and finds some beliefe for the win she could be very dangerous.

venus needs to get ontop in this match and never let go of the lead.

BTW, somebody can finally tell me how to pronounce Sabine' name: It's LISIKI or LIZZIKI or LISITSKI?

Venus in two. She's more comfortable after her 1R and won't have any lapses in concentration this time.

This is how it would be pronounced in its original country (Poland), however Sabine is German so I can't say if her family modified the pronunciation.

I think this one is going to go three and Sabine will find a way to pull it out. I hope I am wrong though.

Here in Germany I've only heard her being called LISIKI but I'm not sure if that is actually correct :p

Sabine on her day has a formidable serve, and her baseline game can create the most wicked angles. This is all questionable though with Sabine as to whether she can produce this type of form against Venus.

Venus has the edge in every department, and will especially expose the limitations Sabine has in the movement stakes. A very lumpy mover to put it bluntly.

Venus in 2, but Sabine is a promising match-player so should make in interesting.

I expect this to be a tough match... Likinskinci or whatever can be very tricky. And of course she has a chance to get a career defining win against none other than the Legendary Venus Ebony Starr Wimbledon Williams, so I expect her to bring the kictchen sink. But Venus has been taking care of these sorts of matches recently, even if in an unattractive fashion.

But whatever works. ^.^

Lisicki, on her good day can hold serve quite comfortably.

She has all the weapons to make it at least a contest.

Well, according to the WTA website, her name is pronounced (LEE-zi-kee).
