Well, must wins and WC opponents, first round draws couldn't be better.

I really hope the last match was just a very very bad day.

Absoluter Pflichtsieg zur Rehabilitation nach der Blamage von letzter Woche.

Oct 13th, 2012, 11:27 PM
well, another great chance to win a match but Minella isnt worse than Mayr-Achleitner on indoor hard for sure, so we cant be sure at all + last time Minella won easily against Sabine, so I am not sure at all if Sabine can win that match.
But sure, Minella is nothing special at all, so Sabine has to blame herself once again if she loses that match, but I hope that she wins this time, a match against Miss Venus would be nice!

Looks like we need to break out of this same old routine that has plagued us this entire year. :rolleyes: I certainly don't consider it a "must win" as I will continue to support her regardless of the results. Just go out and play your heart out Sabs:bounce:

I don't think "must win" is a realistic term for Sabine at the moment. but I'm sure everyone is hoping for a much improved performance this time. Under "normal circumstances" Mandy wouldn't be a problem, but Sabine hasn't visited there for a while now (and doesn't stay there long when she does) so it's hard to approach this match with a huge amount of confidence. I'm very hopeful though, and if some of what she showed against Vika can reappear I'll be much happier.

Venus in r2 is another story. She can have bad days with her auto-immune problems, but I like her and won't be wishing for that should Sabine get that far. Anyway, one game at a time.... :)

So ein Schwachsinn :rolleyes: Als kann man in der momentanen Verfassung von Sabine einen Sieg ganz fest erwarten, fast egal gegen wen.
Das schreibst du nur um nach einer Niederlage wieder deine bekannten Dinge zu schreiben und dann wirkt das natürlich alles glaubhaft weil es ja vorher wie ein Pflichtsieg schien ;)

Würde mich ja freuen wenn du einmal recht behälst und sie gewinnen sollte. :)

Irgendwann braucht sie die Punkte, denn wenn sie hier nicht gewinnen sollte, dann drohen Azarenka, Williams, Sharapova oder Kerber und zwar in der 1.Runde der Australian Open. Lisicki hat noch 165 Punkte in dieser Saison zu verteidigen.

Jimmie48
Oct 14th, 2012, 11:43 AM
Alle Spieler brauchen Punkte, das ist ja nix neues.

Von einem Pflichtsieg zu sprechen ist in Sabine's momentaner Verfassung aber wenig hilfreich. Sicher ist sie auf dem Papier die klare Favoritin aber wenn man sich die Form der letzten Monate anschaut verschwimmt das schon ein bisschen.

Minella hat bei den USO immerhin R3 erreicht, zur Zeit ist sie 78. im Ranking, also schon eine andere Hausnummer als Achleitner. Ein Sieg wäre wichtig aber grundsätzlich ist sicherlich gut bei Sabine im Moment so wenig wie möglich zu erwarten.

mk27
Oct 14th, 2012, 12:00 PM
Minella ist aber eines der einfacheren Lose. Sie hätte auch V.Williams gleich in R1 bekommen können.
Leichte Auslosung muss man nutzen, denn aonsten braucht man bei richtig schweren Auslosungen auch nicht jammern. :shrug:

Oct 14th, 2012, 12:07 PM
I wish this time in a clear victory in a match played with safety and authority, but unfortunately we know that it will not, considering the current moment of Sabine. However, I still have hope because anything could happen and maybe this time it might work everything. :tape:

Sicher ist das so, aber denkst du echt zur Zeit ist Sabine so klar favorisiert das von einem "must win" geschrieben werden muss?

Na Sabine jammert mit Sicherheit nicht, wenn sie schwere Auslosungen bekommt, das tun dann wir hier meistens ;)

Edit: Und du wirst uns dann sicher wieder daran erinnern, dass sie es sich ja hätte leichter machen können bei Siegen in vermeintlich einfacheren Auslosungen/ ersten Runden, um bei den gesetzten Spielern zu sein, stimmts? :lol:

Die werden auch schneller kommen als man schauen kann. Schließlich hat sie in Melbourne die 4.Runde zu verteidigen was als Ungesetzte dann doch ziemlich schwer werden wird. Im Worst Case ist ein Platz um 50 im Ranking Anfang Februar durchaus möglich.

Am Jahresende: ca. 35
Nach Melbourne: ca. 55

Ja, ein Sieg könnte schon helfen, denn da liegen alle sehr eng beieinander und es ist schon ein Unterschied, ob man in Melbourne jetzt gesetzt oder nicht gesetzt sein wird. Kann natürlich sein, dass ein Sieg nicht reichen wird. Wäre vielleicht auch mal besser, wenn sie z.B. eines der neuen Challenger-Turniere spielen würde.

Ziva
Oct 14th, 2012, 01:17 PM
das ist ja eh klar, aber einige verschließen noch die Augen davor das das dann doch Sau schwer werden kann.

Glaube kaum das sie das machen wird, bzw. dieses Jahr geht in der Hinsicht eh nicht mehr.

Mal abwarten,mehr kann man eh nicht tun

Michael!
Oct 14th, 2012, 02:06 PM
Naja, wäre auf jeden Fall besser , Punkte hin oder her, wenn sie hier noch einmal ein Match gewinnen würde.
Also die Saison mit Niederlagen gegen Mayr-A. und Minella zu beenden, das wäre jetzt nicht so toll.
Und wie gesagt, wenn sie jetzt eine Spielerin wäre die solche Rückschläge sofort wegstecken könnte und nächstes Jahr sofort aus dem Training heraus wieder Topleistung zeigen könnte, dann wäre das alles kein Problem, aber daran glaube ich nicht wirklich...würde mich hier natürlich gerne täuschen!

"So a nonsense as can expect a victory firmly in the current Constitution of Sabine, almost no matter against whom.At some point, she need the points, because if she here should not win, then Clijsters, Williams, Sharapova or Kerber threaten in the 1.Runde of the Australian Open. Lisicki has to defend still 165 points this season." :confused::lol:
mk27 as interpreted by Bing Translator (and :confused::lol: is directed at Bing translator, not mk27).

I include this translation of a quote to show how language differences can lead to misunderstanding (although this one was rather humorous). When I first read the Bing translation I started to reply to mk27 inquiring how Sabine could face Clijsters in the 2013 Australian Open. Has she already come out of retirement? Luckily I read mk27's original message before replying and noticed that Bing translator has somehow translated "Azarenka" as "Clijsters". Either Bing got confused or is not the biggest tennis fan:lol:

My only disagreement with mk27 is that I think she needs to focus on her game before she worries about points. Bolletieri has stated that the pressure of defending points has led to much of her problems this year. While I don't think Sabine's main concern is ranking points, I do think that she has been stressed by trying to live up to expectations. Sure, she may face a top player in round 1 of the AO, but she seems to have always had an easier time being the David rather than the Goliath. In 2011 she constantly stated that she was more concerned with the process and improving each day rather than the results. Without the expectations of certain results, she was able to relax and get her game to the level where, as seen at Dallas, she not only beat players she should beat, but smashed them like bugs.

well, Flipkens right now is one of the worst opponents for Sabine, a good server and someone with brain who just can keep the ball in with her dangerous slice, I would be very surprised if Sabine could win that!

JohnMcP
Oct 14th, 2012, 02:54 PM
I guess I just don't understand all the hand-wringing over who Sabine's opponent will be. :confused: Predicting her results, especially at them moment, depends almost completely on the state of her own game, not who her opponent will be. Sabine has beaten Flipkens both times they have played -- admittedly her game was in a better state at the time so we'll just have to wait to see how Sabine plays.

"Expect the worst and hope for the best" -- a good recipe for life in general.

jetglo
Oct 14th, 2012, 03:08 PM
Maybe if you'd watched Flipkins this last week you'd understand. She's playing very well at the moment. There won't be many cheap points given and she won't be tired in r1 like she was against Julia in the semis.

JohnMcP
Oct 14th, 2012, 03:33 PM
Maybe Sabine will notice exactly what you are saying and her own expectations will be lowered. She has almost always played better with lower expectations. I say "almost" because last year in Dallas seemed to be an exception when she destroyed lower ranked opponents. I think the way to get back to that point is to focus on improving her own game without worrying about the opponent as far as expectations are concerned (certainly I believe in playing to a player's weaknesses).

We need to get out of this cycle of declaring "must wins," celebrating Sabine's victories the morning of the match, and being completely stunned when she loses. At least it seems now no one is saying this is a "must win" and hopefully no one will be celebrating her victory before it happens.

Oct 14th, 2012, 03:39 PM

maurysicki
Oct 14th, 2012, 03:43 PM
It's True.Flipkens has played well this week but needless to predict a result now.
If Sabine is in good form a player as Flipkens she eats it.
If she approaches the match as Linz 1R she goes home in 2 sets for sure.
Against this kind of player. all depends only from her and his state. Because they are simply waiting his errors to win the match , nothing more. It's she to make all, for better or for worse. Unfortunately this year she has wrong many first match vs inferior ranking player...Even if she could wake up (I hope) :rolleyes:

Flipkens def. Lisicki 36 63 61

I mean, most of us expected her to lose, I guess but seems like Flipkens was beatable today!
Sabine had a good start, surprised me, 1st serve was really good, many aces, weak 2nd serve as usual but "only" one break for Flipkens but after that all got worse.
Should be other way round, bad start and then gets better after playing for a whle but not the case with Sabine, got worse and worse, 3rd set was totally shit it seems, 4 breaks for Flipkens.
So can´t see anything positive here, it´s just not enough if you can play well for 15min and her serve just didn´t improve at all lately and as Ziva said in the live score thread also, it seems like training doesn´t help there..major changes needed, her results and her game just suck lately, 2013 will be tough for her.

Well, season was over for Sabine after Linz anyway.

CillyUltra
Oct 17th, 2012, 12:30 PM
The match wasn't that bad, it was in no shape or form a second Linz. She played a very solid first set but when Flipkens started cutting down on her UEs she basically had nothing to answer that with. She had a bunch of Bps in the second and third set but it wasn't like she was wasting big chances left and right.

Flipkens was simply an unfortunate opponent to meet at this point, she's riding high on confidence after her latest results, makes very little mistakes and she brought her highly-annoying fan club of old geezers as well....

Compared to Linz, Sabine never let up and kept pushing herself, even at 5-1 in the third...she was looking very committed and that's definitely a positive thing to take away from this match.

Thanks for your report.

CillyUltra
Oct 17th, 2012, 12:30 PM
While I agree that there is a lot of work ahead and Sabine needs matchplay, the first order of business is to get some rest and the end of the season couldn't come soon enough. She has been through an exhausting season having to play through injuries and illness and the Olympics which meant so much to her. I didn't see the latest match, but in the Mayr match she was definitely tired (if not sick or injured). I think at this point playing extra tournaments while injured and/or exhausted would be counterproductive. She needs to spend her offseason not only getting rest but also learning how to preserve her health and how to pace herself throughout an entire WTA year, which is grueling (a factor I think we need to consider a little more). While I don't advocate keeping everything the same and assuming everything will turn out all right, as a "half glass full" person, I think there is much to look forward to in 2013.
Yes, it's good for Sabine to have some time off now. And, I think she'll be glad to spend some time with Ben. She hasn't played lots of matches lately, but she definitely practiced hard in the meantime. I guess her head was a bit tired recently, next to her lack of confidence.

Sabine has to work very hard on her fitness and physical stamina during off season and she has to do it in an effective way, after she has begun to recognize this as a major obstacle to her progress. Maybe Sabine realizes this as a key moment of her career. If she won't get a grip on her constant injury and illness problems (if it's even possible with her body) she will never establish herself as a top class player.

Nevertheless, Sabine can be very proud of what she achieved this year at Wimbledon, nearly repeating her success from last year. And, Sabine can be very proud of how she competed at the Olympics. Too bad she barely missed a medal. I initially thought it was a forgiven chance. But if you look at how devoted she was to her dream of a Olympic medal, how she bent over backwards to get there, how much she fought for her country despite her abdominal injury (probably that's why she didn't go to the opening ceremony), putting at risk the US Open. I as a German say, that was hugely impressive.

17/21 Win lose is much more schocking IMO

normally she wins at least 60 % of her matches, her father once said, it's key that she wins those 60%, if not they would play smaller tournaments to get back to this stat.

Overall a season to forget as soon as possible.

yeah i'm always curious about this, but it's very complicated and very individual for every player.

This season she won't have made much, maybe even a negative income in the end.
2011 on the other hand was quite good Xperia hot shots, new Sponsors, 2x 4R. at slams and the big one: Semis in Wimbledon. $$$

2013, she really has to get some more regular results over the whole season, this is very important for interested sponsors.
I would be very happy, if next year this time she could have stablised her Ranking somewhere Top 40/30/20 or whatever, but stable. Those ups and downs are :(

I just saw,she says her season is over, OK now more Tournaments then, i hope they are doing the right thing there.

She played much better than in Linz and it was the worst first round opponent you could get in Lux atm. First set she really played strong and full of confidence. But her serve (the first) said "good bye" in the second set, especially from the advantage side and never came back.:(
Flipkens, mentored by Clijsters in Lux., got stronger and a groupe of belgian fans supported her loud.
The rest is already known ;)

But I will never forget my first Lisicki match in live :hearts:
If I was a fan before I'm a fan4ever now ;)
New outfit and a little bit of old Lisicki w. fist pumping and enjoying good and bad moments :lol: and the best: I had the chance to meet her today just before she returned home to Berlin. She is optimistic and healthy and will come back more resistant in 2013 (die ungerade sind ihre guten Jahre).:p

Thanks for giving us a glimpse of what it is like to experience Sabine Sunshine firsthand:hearts: That's something we need a little more of on this site;)

Maybe I can make it to Charleston or Miami next year -- or should I dare say I hope she plays Memphis which is even closer (I know I will get attacked for even mentioning that because it is fewer ranking points than Doha, but a tournament she feels more comfortable playing).

I won't be able to watch any match tomorrow because of my responsibility out of the court. But Thursday there will be a fan who will be shouting for Sabine with a little surprise :)

A little clue: Maria and her fans will enjoy it :devil:


I'll support Angie this year.(sorry Petra) If you hear "Auf Gehts" it will be me :)
To be honest, Kerber is not in my favourite list but she is German, she needs more support than any other player because of her group and the main reason she is childhood friend of Sabine..

Btw, this year Serena and Vika will get huge support from Turkish fans.

Honestly, I don't see any reason to support a player who isn't present in Istanbul, even it's Sabine :tape:
Somehow this imagination scares me - hope you weren't get locked up ....:tape:

Sometimes its really embarrassing to be a Sabine fan :lol:
