Just an excuse. If she wasn't healthy she wouldn't be there or at least wouldn't be playing doubles too. She needs to find some mental toughness.

Re: Indian Wells 2012


losing to Dominguez? on hard? against a player without weapons at all?

Before some poster try to find excuses again!
Sabine had tests before and she still played IW, so doctors obviously gave her the OK to play => means it can´t be that serious anymore + she played doubles before.
And it was Dominguez, I mean, you just have to beat such a player, even with fever or whatever, seriously, awful

But typical Sabine again, in first set wasted tons of GPs before she´s getting broken, herself she can´t take any of her BPs, same picture in 2nd set where she played at least a bit better (seems so at least ) but then of course, she gets broken when she has the pressure to stay in the match at *45, not surprising at all.

I really don´t know what happened to her, I mean, she is in average shape anyway already since NY last year, often some little problems with injuries etc but that can´t be the reason for such a defeat, it is just Sabine.
A top player is able to win the matches even on a bad day but Sabine just sucks badly whenever she plays bad, no mental strength, not able to change her game a bit, just brainless ballbashing at it´s best, I am really happy that I didn´t see that

But well, as I said, she never played well in IW anyway but losing to LDL beats it all, seriously!

You are right, she was tested. If there is something wrong she shouldn't play, but she did and so I think the test was fine

Re: Indian Wells 2012

The thing is: we didn't see anything. We only have the stats:


She couldn't convert her BP, and she got easily broken. If you don't play well on the big points that's most certainly the head talking. I believe there's a lot of pressure on her. Not only is she very close to the Top 10 where she wants to be, she also has nothing to defend right now. My guess is she is trying too hard, she knows she has a huge chance right now (Feb-April), if she does fine to climb in the ranking. Yep, that can cripple you if you know what's at stake and where you COULD BE, if you played well. I believe, she is thinking ahead too much. Plus, she has all these horrible losses in the last month (due to illness mostly but still: loss is loss) and it's not exactly pushing her confidence. So, that'd be another reason for her to get really tight.

She needs some easy wins IMO. Maybe she can play a small tournament (don't have the schedule in my head... so don't know if that is possible) and win some easy matches.

Re: Indian Wells 2012

You think it's the pressure now, but what she should do @ Wimbledon? There she will have a lot more pressure, that's why she have to earn points NOW

Re: Indian Wells 2012

like i said earlier today, Top Ten is outta range, now almost impossible, i saw that loss comming.

The whole season can become a massive disaster, to hold Top 25 at the end of the season will be very very hard, if the form doesnt rise like crazy soon, today she reached her lowest point.

No Gajdosova downfall please !!!

I know. What I'm trying to say is that she knows it, too! That's the problem! It's not like last year when she had "nothing to lose". She can lose big time and she knows it.

yeah yeah you pessimist
sorry

Cool down and think again. She will win again. But on the other side before IW we said, that she has to play against a winnable opponent in the first round to get her confidence back and now she loses vs. number 1xx.

Yeah it seems so. At the moment she is just player number 5 in germany. She has to go through and get little by little her strength back. Hmm...

the not converted break points were key to her loss today, that problem isnt new, since the very first match of the season, she cant convert them, same on GP, its clearly the pressure she puts on herself.
Also she loses confidence after some UEs and makes even more in the process.

But Today there was no pressure, it was 2nd round vs someone she schould beat 6-2 6-2, even without good serving.
If she had lost to kirilenko next round i could understand that there is pressure on her to beat a good player and get lots of points.

She isnt playing Tennis since yesterday, such matches agains such low ranked players are routine and must get won easy 9/10 times.
if its all mental, even against such an opponent, she must be in a very very huge mental slump.

since there is no progress she and her team obviously have to change something, i dont know what they are doing in training, but i would suggest lots of match simulations now, skip the stroke, serve training, her matchplay is the main problem.
