Re: Australian Open 2008

I´m totally anxious to this match against Liscki

think that Dinara will win this, but it will be a tough match

Lisicki is 18 years old, won two ITF-titles last year and is nb. 194 in the world - she is really talented

in quali she beats Peers (WC) in 2 sets, Czink in 3 sets and Yakimova in 2 straight sets

also good luck for Safina, but I hope that Lisicki can show a good match

Re: Australian Open 2008

S. Lisicki def. D. Safina 7:6 4:6 6:2

I knew that she is really talented, but I never thought she could beat Safina in her first Main-Draw appearance in a Grand Slam ever

Sabine Lisicki will now reach Top150 in ranking, but I think that Safina will play nice tournament this year too

Re: Australian Open 2008

Dinara and Dechy are out of singles. They can focus on doubles, make it 2 majors in a row


Dinara Safina of Russia eyes the ball as she plays Germany's Sabine Lisicki on her way to lose their Women's singles first round match at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne, Australia, Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2008.
