Choking Slam Semis away, i would love to see Sabs do this too.:)

I won't analyze the draw this time, every match of her is like a final these days, step by step, opponents don't matter that much anymore.

Grass, we are ready for you and we are hungry for Points !!

Ich werde mich frühstens Sonntag abend oder besser noch am Montag mit dem Birmingham Draw befassen und das erste match auch auf keinen Fall live verfolgen. Ich drücke ihr dann von irgendwo fern eines Internetanschlusses die Daumen und gebe natürlich die Hoffnung nicht auf, dass sie mal wieder eine erste Runde übersteht.:p


Wenn nicht auf Rasen, wo dann...? :tape:

Sie wird in der ersten Runde ein Freilos haben, Birmingham ist ein 56er Draw. :angel:
Vor Dienstag wird sie deshalb auch nicht spielen.

With her latest result the draw is tough and tricky. This time I believe Sabine won't let the facepalm happen again. She has to concentrate and addict herself to her tennis. Good luck Sabine :bigclap:

If Sabine lost her match today (thinking the worst) I really want to ask her why she didn't play Nottingham ITF... She played exhibitions and went commercial shoots while Ula were playing on grass.

Urzula has 6-0 record on grass this year because she won Nottingham and she practiced more on grass compared to Sabine. Today the match will be interesting. Lots of pressure on Sabine, this match will be one of the most important match this year for Sabine.

Ziva
Jun 13th, 2012, 01:55 PM
i agree, a win would help her a lot, if she loses, she needs to take a look at her shedule of tournaments and make some mayor changes.

It will be tough, U.Radwanska is playing very good and has lots of matches on grass already, Sabine has only practised on it and not very much, because of the rain.

Hoping for the best, but i don't see her winning it :sad:

I'm staying up til early hours of the morning waiting just to listen to her game on BBC Radio. It's not a good feeling going to bed so late after a Bine loss, so please remember how much you love grass Bineee :hearts:. On recent form it's hard to be confident of her winning but we know this recent form isn't the real Bine!

I'm just listening to BBC radio, too. The Franny match just started and the commentators said some wind came up,temperatures dropped and the sky looks as if it could rain later on. I hope you don't miss sleep with the result the match can't start for weather reasons;)

Schiavone match is still going at the moment as I type...I just wouldn't want to wake up and read she lost.

SABINE MUST CHANGE HER TEAM COMPLETELY!

1)She has no tactics (base on her previous matches), when she calls her coach, he can't help her... She has to be blind to see her coach is short of her..
2)Why didn't she play doubles in the beginning of the season? Why stopped playing with Sam?
3)Lots of photo shoots, advertisement shoots and exhibition matches (off court activities) this year. All of them took her mind out of the tennis!
4)Why did she change her racket? Maybe the right question is why right before RG?
5)Why didn't she play Nottingham ITF? She didn't have time to train on grass, how could her team didn't notice about this? She chosen to play exhibition match and go to a photoshoot.
6)Her biggest mistake is her mental strength, I was expecting her to cope with this but with each passing season it is getting worst. Crying and tears almost every match...
7)She is not serving anymore like she used to. I wonder does her team have any training plan about this? If yes why nothing changed?
8)Sabine took 5 injury breaks this year. How could she get injured this much easy? Anything wrong with her trainings?
9)What happened to Chip Brooks as a coach?
10)Lots of UE and week 1st serve from her. Any training plan for this?
11)She had 35 off days after her matches which she loose this is a huge time to fix something, even some players come from injury and play but nothing changed her game? WHY?
12)Does she have any health problem?

100% agree, new Team and most important, a new attitude is needed, she has to focus at different things.
Since the ranking is crushed now, it's time for a break to regroup and come back mentally strong and in form, like Kerber did last year.

Jun 13th, 2012, 09:14 PM
well, not a big surprise here!
Statstics looked decent at least, but her serve was also OK against Parmentier and then she served like shit against BMS, so I am not sure if we can see any kind of improvement!
But grass suits her game most but she won´t have many matches now before Wimbledon and that is the biggest problem. I hope for her that she faces a player there who just hates grass, she needs one or two wins in London at least.
Her ranking will fall down now anyway, but more important for her now to get into some decent shape again soon, it is also a question of confidence anyway...so many painful defeats this year.

http://www.smilies.4-user.de/include/Schilder/besserwisser.gif

I'm happy that not all her fans, her REAL fans aren't like that. I listened to the BBC yesterday and the guys mentioned her playing some good winners but it's her inconstancy that broke her neck. But they really cheered for her, even when it was clear, she probably won't win it and they also underlined, Ulla playing a good match and being much more well tuned on grass what makes the difference by confidence. And that's it, her lack of confidence!

Could write much more but would not change anything. ;)

Thanx for the posts (I completely agree with) of @Jimmy48 and @Michael :yeah:


I didn't expect her to win, though I hoped so and I will ever cheer for her, cos she is still THE ONE on court for me atm! (even though she makes me suffer, but only for a short moment...cause my life goes on ;) and even yesterday *Thanks GOMEZ* he deserves to become my Ava for one day :lol: )

None of us are perfect, if we look to our lifes of course we have problems too but it doesn't mean we can't judge the player which we support. If we are not going to talk about her tennis why we are here? To talk about her cloths, boyfriend or her body shape like some fans only do? If you have an antithesis what I said I would like to hear, we can discuss within the framework of mutual respect...
The things which I said are not new, I've been saying those since Jan. In my opinion, you have to be blind not to see those mistakes...
We are all here to support Sabine, we all love her so calling "stupid" to other fan is inappropriate.
Thank you for sharing your own opinions I respect them even you called me or other fan "stupid"...

Even though they pretent to be "a fan". Embarrassingly crude behaviour!

Stress aggravates existing allergies. Her last months (beginning with FC results in februrary, infections, injuries and change of racket in the middle of a season) were hard, a season she expected to become the best of her career with the Olympics as highlight = her stress is comprehensible!

I know what I'm talking about. I had a poll allergy for 8 years that became worse when I had problems (doesn't matter what kind..), when I tackled the problem, it's gone. This spring is the first without. :)

People need to stick through the hard times to be real fans. Maybe those that jumped on the Bine bandwagon after her Wimbly semi run are not following her so much now but for anyone that followed her during 2010 when she was out half of the year injured and then playing ITF's in early 2011, we know about the ups and downs of following her. Also I am used to following teams that go through bad losing runs in team sports so it's not an unusual experience for me to go through these times.

Sabine seems constantly unlucky with health issues. Really we don't know the full story of her health so we can't judge this. Certainly I don't think anyone accusing Sabine of faking or over exaggerating any of her health issues on/off court has any idea of what it's like to deal with the problems as a pro athlete, they just like to have something to complain about. I got frustrated a few months ago after a Bine retirement and made some bad comments but then I was apologetic. None of us are pro tennis players as far as I know so we shouldn't question anyone's stamina or whether they are genuinely sick/injured in games.

Ziva
Jun 15th, 2012, 11:01 AM
Yes Mike, most of us were Fans long before Wimbledon and we know her ups and downs and nobody said something bad about Bine. Only searching for a way out, because it hasn't been that bad before, regarding her formdrop.
Saying she is alright and will win again, without changing something, like some do and get angry at others which don't think so, is kinda naive and they don't know her very well then.
