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.

Tell me about it

Geekking -- I was just wondering from your message if the something you were planning for Sabine was going to happen at the WTA Championships? If so let me know when so I'll know which part to watch.

Hello everyone. I'm creating something for Sabine. Don't forget to watch WTA Champs I'm sure you will like it I'll inform you later about it, stay tuned.

Without Sabine everything is boring in this tournament.

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).
Memphis seems very unlikely since it collides with the MIDDLE EA$$$T duo in february, but if you could make it to Miami, that would be totally different experience

Well, she will have to play smaller tournaments, because of her ranking, she won't be seededin the bigger ones, so you could get lucky.

The rest is already known

But I will never forget my first Lisicki match in live
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 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).

...and damn it! She looks much better in real than in tv or on pics, simply stunning!!!

Enjoying the days in Lux...

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.
Err, which was exactly what I have been saying, but getting criticized for it!!!

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.
