Re: Fun after disappointment in Ponte Vedra and in Charleston.

I´ve had also seen the match. Sabine had more errors but she hit 33 winners, Bartoli hit 5. Was a really nice game from Sabine, too good for Bartoli.

But I know how good Bartoli can play, but the victory was very derserved for Sabine

I wish Marion the best for the next tournaments

Re: Fun after disappointment in Ponte Vedra and in Charleston.

I saw some parts of it on a sports channel on tv. Sabine was just amazing, playing even better then against Venus i thought. Marion had no chance. It was like when she played Vika in Brisbane, the match was out of her control.

Re: Fun after disappointment in Ponte Vedra and in Charleston.

Well, she had many errors against Vika, and served crap.

Obviously I'm thirlled that Sabine is playing so well, but I would like to know how Marion is playing on clay. Looking at the stats, I assume she is just spinning the first serve in, and I just wonder what her movement is like.

Re: Fun after disappointment in Ponte Vedra and in Charleston.

Eh, her movement wasnt great to be honest, as clay isnt her surface, she looks much better on hard or grass. And while she was getting the serve in she wasnt going for power, she was concentrating on merely getting it in which was disppointing. It wasnt as good as her serving against Czink but wasnt as bad as her serving against Karantacheva. Poor but not terrible.

Re: Fun after disappointment in Ponte Vedra and in Charleston.

Yes, and when her movement and serve are poor, she can be really hit off the court.

There's a match of hers against Sania Mirza (you can see it on youtube) at the US open (albeit this was Marion when she wasn't such a great player and when her movement was poor on every surface+her serve was very bad), and I assume what happened in that match happened today.

Well she really does struggle on clay. I don't expect much from her on it, but this tournament alone is better than her entire 08 clay-court season.

Allez!

Re: Fun after disappointment in Ponte Vedra and in Charleston.

yeh that's what I was going to say slumptoli, she's already won more matches on clay this year then she did for the entire season last year, so this is 200 points for free basically

Re: Fun after disappointment in Ponte Vedra and in Charleston.

Have read some reports from reliable sources who are NOT Marion-haters,and indications were that this match was a real ass-whupping.Still,I'll take solace in that Marion hates clay and yet made her 3rd career clay SF on the WTA level....Regardless,aye DO wish she hadn't been hurt in the 2007 Prague final.She would've stomped a mudhole in Morigami's ass as she did in their other meetings,and she'd have had at least a token clay title on her resume....Oh well(sigh)....

Re: Fun after disappointment in Ponte Vedra and in Charleston.

Sabine Lisicki defeated Caroline Wozniacki in 2 sets : 6-2 6-4. Sabine Lisicki was really on fire this week.

And for Marion, a semi final on a clay tournament is really a good thing. 1 week to improve 1st serve before Stuttgart, Rome and Madrid.

What a schedule !

Good to lose to the eventual champ. Sabine really was on fire.
