What a mess of a match ... Sabine didn't look right. You can tell she's not completely healthy.

Lisicki is unlucky.
If she played herself into the match and was able to further rest her injury she could of posed a real threat to Venus

Where was your fight, Sabine? :sad: I hope the injury is gone though, and I will prepare myself for her massacres on the grass. :drool:

was clear, Sabine is still too insonsistent, not a surprise, especially after her problems over the last weeks..
But still disappointing, ugly scoreline :o

:banana: Lucie has so much raw talent.

I know she will challenge Venus, like she did in Rome. However, Lucie still misses that instinct to win huge matches. Prove me wrong against Venus!! :bounce:

Tough that these two had to meet this early, though neither looks likely to take out Vee. I did eye the Sabine bandwagon, but I'm waiting for her to show some consistency. Unlike today. I know she's hurt, but wow.

Safarova played well, though. She could give Vee some trouble, though I expect Big Sister to win.

Having both these players doing well enough to meet later in tournaments would be a good thing for women's tennis, IMHO.

Expected result :o

Lisicki couldn't barely win a 3 set match in 2009. :rolleyes:

Sabine's matches are always entertaining to watch, even when she loses, but this one was plain boring. I guess we couldn't expect much from her because she had a lot of problems with her health recently. She did fight though and was able to take the second set. She did all she could. Her serve was not working, nor was her forehand... It sure is disappointing that she doesn't have the results everyone was expecting, I think most of us wanted a rematch against Venus :lol: .

Anyway, Lucie is a talented player, it's not really a shame to lose to her, even if I think a healthy Sabine would've win.

I'm so disappointed for Sabine, that she had to go through all that with the shoulder and the intestines. She had virtually no match play, and this is about what I expected. Takes some of the fun out of the French Open for me--I wanted to see how far she could go.

In the last month, Lucie has taken sets from Venus and Safina, and these sets she won today have impressive scorelines. She's coming back into form.

Congrats Lucie :)
but Sabine :hug:

Sabine was 5 days, till last tuesday, in hospital, her preparation for the French Open was extremly bad.
So taking a set from an inform Top 50 player is not so bad. ;)
