Her first event in 2011 will be ASB Classic in Auckland. She will play qualies here.

Good luck :hearts:

From FB:
Hi everybody, I'm in Auckland getting ready for my first tournament. I still feel the jetlag but I hope that after one or two more nights it will be okay :) I've been at this tournament 3 years ago and the site has changed a lot! There is still a lot of constructions going on but its really getting nice! I'm heading to my second practice soon. I hope everybody had a great Christmas!

:inlove:

Happy she arrived in Auckland, ready to play. Can't wait for the new season to start. :hearts:
Hope she gets a few wins early on, get some rhythm and confidence.

From Twitter:
"got into Auckland yesterday evening. Going to hit a little later today. I'm happy to be here again :) "

The q-draw for WTA Aucland is out:

(2)Mirjana Lucic (CRO) v Maria Irigoyen (ARG)
Stephanie Dubois (CAN) v Sabine Lisicki (GER)
Silvia Soler Espinosa (ESP) v Anne Kremer (LUX)
Sania Mirza (IND) v (8)Stefanie Voegele (SUI)

Mirjana and Sabine in the same part of the draw :(
Stephanie hasn't played since Quebec (september).
Sania had a really good run in Dubai beating Pervak, Goerges, Rodina and then Jovanovski in the final.

GL Sabine :cheer:

Dubois should be beatable, another 1st round defeat here would be disappointing, then probably Lucic, that would be for sure much more difficult, although Lucic is really inconsistent, so you never know what to expect, we´ll see....good luck :)

Well all the opponents are beatable although the draw could have been a bit easier from R2 on... but it will all depend on herself... so let's hope the best... :)

A win is a win, and it's not too bad considering how rusty and nervous she must have been. Lucic will be a good first test.

Michael!
Jan 1st, 2011, 01:00 AM
Good scorline, I mean, sure, shouldn´t lose a set to Dubois but she obviously needed some time to get into better shape after her long break and it´s good to see that she won the 3rd set 60, as she normally got weaker in the matches before in the 3rd set..so good start for her, we´ll see how she does against Lucic, I hope she can win, would be really nice :)

Phil=)
Jan 1st, 2011, 11:52 AM
I'm pretty confident that she'll win against Lucic in 3 setter.
Someone wrote in his Day Report that Lucic bashed the balls 2 meters behind the baseline or she made spectacular winners.;)

Deutsche Damen sind nicht gut für meinen Puls :o

Guter Fight, war kein gutes Match, da keine Konstanz, und hätte sie auch locker gewinnen müssen, wieder zu viele Chancen vergeben, aber sie hat sehr gut gekämpft, nicht aufgegeben und nur so kann sie wieder nach oben kommen, also hätte ich nicht gedacht, dass sie in ihrer momentanen Verfassung einen TB im 3.Satz gewinnt, das war dann stark, wenn sie körperlich wieder fit gemacht werden kann, ist auch die erste Runde im Hauptfeld möglich...

Da stimme ich dir zu. Und Sabine hat vom Kopf her einfach eine meilenweit bessere Einstellung. ALG hätte sich bei 2-5 so aufgeregt, dass die Punkte nach dem 2. Schlag verloren gegangen wären.

The match was ugly to watch. But I like Sabine`s fighting spirit!
Hope Sabine got tips from ALG how to beat Molinero!

Wenn die deutschen Mädels so weitermachen wie in ihrem ersten Turnier in 2011, dann bin ich sehr bald ergraut oder schon im Grab, bevor die Saison abgeschlossen ist.:help::lol:
Aber zum Glück gibt`s ja nicht nur so Zitterpalmen wie Sabine und ALG, sondern auch deutsche Spielerinnen wie zB Andrea Petkovic, die mental stärker und konstanter sind.;)

^^ ah, ok, didn´t check schedule, thanks :lol:
Well,but still a good start into 2011, still not at 100% but that will come if she stays injury free, I think her movement will improve with matches, yet she is probably still afraid of new injuries and that´s why she is a bit more careful but that will get better, it´s just important that she gets some confidence back and it seems like she is on a good way....

Now against the nr 2 seed Yanina Wickmayer in the 2nd round. Nothing to lose really.

There's no clear media pet this early in the tournament but my favourite is Sabine Lisicki. Though I accidentally annoyed her by asking how she felt at home about only being the ninth best ranked German - "What? I do not believe I am that lowly ranked?" - she was still lovely. She was brimming with enthusiasm at being at the tournament and described the "adrenalin" of being on centre court. Quite a refreshing attitude to have someone who loves their job. After all, playing sport for a living doesn't seem that tough really, does it?

It's great to see Sabine start off so well. Even though I like Wicki too, I'll be for Sabs.

I look forward to spending more time here in 2011 with Lena off making babies and stuff. ;)

I'm so happy to see Sabine back and playing alot of matches. A tough week with 5 matches in 5 days. She showed great fight in beating Mirza despite not playing so well and again today against Wickmayer she played some amazing points but she's still some way off her best form. I've joined these forums mostly interested in talking about Bine, her big serve, powerful strokes and her beautiful smile:). Go Bine!

Well, I didn´t expect her to win against Wickmayer, it was her 5th match in a row and beside that she just isn´t consistent enough yet, serve was great in 2nd set, there she could dominate the match, in 3rd set her 1st serve percentage was just too low, 1st set was pretty close as well, although it seems pretty clear with 2-6, but good to see that she of course can still beat players like Wickmayer, she just has to work on a few things like the consistency,movement, serve but she really seems on a good way, she won 4 matches in a row here and always showed some great fight, should be confident now and try to qualify for Melbourne, depends a bit on the draw but it will definetly depend on her then, if she plays well, she will qualify....but we´ll see, I remember we all were pretty optimistic as well after her Zvonareva match, I just hope that she stays focused now and has a good practice week before Melbourne starts :)

It's great to see Sabine start off so well. :yeah::)
This is Sabine fifth match without a pause. Wickmayer second
In the third set was to see that Sabine is not as fresh as Wicki.

The referee has 7 overuls made in first and sat all against Sabine.
The referee was out of level Denemark. :devil:

Nevertheless, it is nice comeback by Sabine :hearts: :bounce::bounce:
Kee it up .:yeah::)

:sad:
but all in all it was a great first tournament this year for Sabine.
And 5 games in 5 days was perhaps a little bit too much.
i hope her self confidence is good for the AO Q and hope she can qualify for main draw

good luck Sabine :wavey:

Sabine :awww: :hug: I was hoping she would have a really solid service game like she did against Molinero. I felt she really had a chance to beat Wicky if that would have happened. I'm still so proud of her for putting together this run. I think Luxembourg 2009 was the last time she had a string of wins like this.

Sabine is not playing Sydney or Hobart? :confused:

Is it because her ranking is too low for Quali? :sad:
