Re: 2012 Dubai

As Lisicki being my favourite tennis player, I can say I'm pretty disappointed with her performances in last 3 or 4 tournaments or more.

I did watch the match today, and is obvious that Radwanska didn't win it, Sabine lost it.

Radwanska just make sure that her balls remain in play, and Sabine was hitting them in the net or below the net, and when she manage to beat the net, many of that balls are called out.

Her service wasn't helping her either.

I hope we will soon watch Sabine in her best, I can guarantee that her best display is enough to beat radwanska best play.

First thought was, that she wants to be more patient in rallys because Aga doesn't make many errors. But Sabine was obviously not in a good shape.

The same thing as every match. First service game, at least it includes: double faults, aces, breakpoints, game points, deuce. That is just Sabine at the moment.

Yep, I saw it the same way, she really seemed to be quite weakened by the virus.
You could see her coughing throughout the match.
And according to the Commentator (not sure if he heard it right) she told Aga after the match, that she would rather not hug her, because she`s sick.

That ancle-thing really didn`t seem to be that bad, maybe she got a bit scared, but I don`t think that she was bothered to much by that?

Well, now she has time to rest up and get healthy.

Re: 2012 Dubai

probably she's like me a "Sommertyp" (didn't find an englisch expr.,sorry!), who struggles with winter sleep. For "us" it's hard to raise full energy when normally we need our winter sleep

Last year she had the same problems to get cracking

It's in her nature, USA, summer and heat will come and she will break through...dont't like the Doha/Dubai either...

Nah. She did well at AO. I think it might be the transition from Aussie Summer - European Winter that messes her up. It does that to a lot of players.

I think her virus still affects her as well, I just was able to watch it a bit, I mean, I hope that sth (some little thing) was wrong actually as this would explain at least some things.

Bad movement and over 40 UEs in 15 games, that must be one of the worst matches of her ever, especially as she made so many cheap errors, right after her serve, sometimes she just tried then to hit the ball back with much spin to keep herself in the rallies but whenever she played with more power she made an error again.
Radwanska had to do nothing to win today.

Positive thing is that she beat Benesova here and got some nice points.
Now she should recover and then prepare for IW and Miami, to be 100% fit there ( should be possible if there isn´t any new injury) and then she can only get better again with playing matches and with some wins.

This isn´t a new situation for Sabine, she obviously isn´t able to play on a consistent level for a whole season ( due to different reasons) and this is sth which she has to work on obviously. No need to mention that a Plan B would help her as well, she just is too easy to beat once her "normal" game doesnt work.

But as always when it is about Sabine, health is most important for her and she will have some better results again in future for sure, just in doubt yet if she can avoid those heavy up´s and down´s in her game in future as lately she obviously wasn´t playing like a world no.13 for most of the time.
Excellent post. Everything you wrote is true. Luckily for me, I had school so I didn't watch the match, I only saw Sabine winning the game at 0:5 in the second (at least she didn't get bageled ), and the final game. Now she has two weeks to recover and prepare, and hopefully she'll do well in IW and Miami C'mon Sabine, it's time to get out of your hibernation and start playing tennis again

Re: 2012 Dubai

Hi everyone, I´m sorry for todays match. Having a little bit of a tough time since I got the virus at Fed Cup. I will go home now to see the doctors and make some blood tests to see why I feel so weak. Hope to be back to normal soon. Thx for your support!

Quote from Sabine's Facebook page. Blood tests? I really hope that she didn't catch anything serious

Good that she will get tested properly - let's hope it's nothing serious. Has she been the same since that food poisoning fucked up her body?
