Re: Montreal 2012

I agree that losing a little bulk will make it easier to move on the court and make her better able to make it through such a grueling schedule. You don't see a lot of Mr. and Ms. Olympias on the tennis courts because the more bulk you have, the more work you have to do to move on the court and the more tired you will get throughout a match. While she might lose a little power, I think she has power to spare and it might be good to sacrifice some power for movement, consistency, and endurance.

I agree with you regarding her attraction from nice personality but it's no physical impossibility to work on getting more relaxed at practise sessions and in matches, without losing kindness and emotionality, to provide injuries sometimes coming from overworking. Her body looks fine to me but reduce few weight to move some easier might be a change for the better (healthier).

Don't get me wrong:I'm no proponent of weight reduction for reasons of appearance but the kind and frequency of her injuries indicate an unbalanced work. Serenas also suffered a lot from protracted injuries

The "next Steffi" comparisons were unfortunate. I think Sabine has the potential to be one of the top players, if not the top, but no one will ever win even close to 23 grand slams in today's game. The style of play and depth of competition are far more grueling than anything Steffi had to face. The commentators seem to all blame the players who do reach #1 for being "pretenders" when I think it is just that much harder to stay at the top or even close to the top. (I'd like to see some of these commentators try to break the top 1000 in today's game).
ate.

Sabine already puts way more pressure on herself than anyone else and all of the stress of Wimbledon and the Olympics have left her exhausted. (As her recent tweets about the Olympics and about someone setting her alarm at 4:30 a.m. seem to indicate). While we all love her emotional nature, I think it doesn't come without a cost. To paraphrase a recent Ivan Lendl quote, "being emotional makes it harder to win." We saw that after she beat Sharapova and, after a celebration that rivaled any tournament victory, looked out of it for most of the match the very next day.

We just have to be patient as the more big victories she accumulates, the less emotional they will be and the more prepared Sabine will be for the next match. Hopefully, she can save her emotions for her even bigger victories to come.

HI all, unfortunately I had to pull out of Cincinnati with an abdominal injury. Its a real pity because I like playing here a lot...
can´t help it but somehow sounds like "oh, btw had to withdraw bla bla"
well, only thing which I don´t understand is that she felt fit enough to play two double matches in a row after her defeat to CSN but then decides to withdraw from Cinci.
well, whatever , it is an "old" injury anyway, so not that serious but she is probably afraid that it could get worse, so I hope that she will play Dallas but once again we can´t exepect much from her, as usual....

If her body isn't strong enough to play more than 5 tournaments a year...

Hab irgendwo gelesen, sie würde wohl auch Dallas nicht spielen, weiß jemand was Konkretes? Anybody knows if she will play Dallas? If not I'm pessimistic about US Open but ...
Hatte sie doch gesagt nach der Verletzung, das sie jetzt jemanden immer dabei hat für die Fitness. WEGEN DEN VIELEN VERLETZUNGEN UND KRANKHEITEN

Ja das ärgert einen schon, das sie nicht mal zwei Zeilen schreibt was nun los ist, nicht schön.

Also ich glaub nicht das sie Dallas spielt, aber da gibts noch keine Infos dazu, wahrscheinlich wissen die es eh selbst noch nicht.

Nun ja, ich könnte dir in deutsch mehr dazu sagen, aber kurz zu deinem Enwand nur das: Sie ist keine 12 mehr und sicher relativ selbständig war ihre Trainingsgestaltung angeht. Inwieweit sie Gymnastikvorgaben erfüllt bzw. überhaupt Pläne hat, liegt (fürchte ich) inzwischen in eigener Verantwortung. Mir fiel jedenfalls auf, dass sie beim Warming up relativ kurze Einheiten mit Bändern absolvierte/ im Gegensatz zu deiner Lieblingsspielerin Stosur z.B...

Wenn man sich anschaut, wie sich ihr Körper und ihre Physischen Fähigkeiten die letzten 3 Jahre verändert haben, kann man daraus seine Schlüsse über ihr Training ziehen. Ihre obere/mittlere Rückenpartie wirkt nicht sehr stark (hast Dir doch sicher auch schon ihre Rückseite angesehen) ...na ja wenn sie sich öfter als andere die Bauch/Rückenmuskulatur zerrt, hat das Gründe und ist nicht Schicksal

Re: Montreal 2012

But she's picking up recurrent injuries Mojo, so something's not quite right. But I don't want to be accused of being her trainer or coach...or a non-fan.

I just hope she finds a way to improve her game, fitness & injury/illness record...& her luck!

She obviously concentrated too much to bulk up a body like serena supposed to be the strongest in the circle...but serena looks yet much more flexible and moves better than Sabine. She seems really to disregard her back muscels, you can see it when you watch her walking from backside. Her pose is not exemplary. Yoga (I do myself and lost all my back problems in a short time) and dancing (modern or classic/ballet) could help her, but I really wonder if her fitness consultings are that backwards or if it's "SHE" (being indiscerning)

Enfach nur SCHADE! Cause she is in control of her own destiny

Oh yeah!

I can hardly believe that. Considering she trains at Bolletieri's that much she must be provided with a thought-out fitness schedule fit to her needs and which addresses movement and flexibility as well. At least that's what I would expect...
