Re: Sabine Lisicki: "I have nothing to lose" (against Serena)

I just hope it's a good competitive match.

Claiming, "I have nothing to lose", is a cliche statement at best,because what she has to lose is 'the match'.

And whether she believe it or not, the very idea that she has nothing to lose will vastly change once Serena cracks her first ace, or impossibly acute return winner by her.

That said, and even as a Serena fan, I hope that Lisicki brings her A+ game to make this match competitive and one to remember.

Re: Sabine Lisicki: "I have nothing to lose" (against Serena)

It's going to be a serving fest but we all know how wild and random Sabine's ground game is. She will need more than good service games against Serena.

Re: Sabine Lisicki: "I have nothing to lose" (against Serena)

Serena hardly ever says she's going to be serious for a match,so .... over to you Sabine, bring it on, of cause you have everything to lose,(1) The match
(2) Not progressing to the next stage

Re: Sabine Lisicki: "I have nothing to lose" (against Serena)

This all means nothing. They both have exactly the same thing to lose - a 4th round match at Wimbledon.

Serena should win it because, well, she's going to turn up. But stranger things have happened (Razzano, Makarove, Stephens etc. etc.) so who knows? Isn't that why we're watching? To see what happens?

Come on Ree, win it all!

Re: Sabine Lisicki: "I have nothing to lose" (against Serena)

She doesn't have anything to lose, but she will have to show a consistency in her ground game and serve against a player of Serena's caliber for 2 sets that she hasn't shown in a long time.

My thoughts as well.
Unlike the winner of Robson/Kanepi, Sabine on a good day can make it a close and competitive match.
If she's off and hitting tons of errors which also happens occasionally, it will be 2&1 or even worse.

As for the quote, it's her current mindset which won't affect the match whatsoever, and another case of GM making a fuss out of nothing (if you know the PTI segment, this quote is "less than nothing" as Tony and Mike would say).

Well to be honest she really doesn't have anything to lose.

Re: Sabine Lisicki: "I have nothing to lose" (against Serena)

Whatever mind games they play, I as her fan believe she is capable of winning. I hope Bine believes in herself as much and more than I believe in her, I'm sure she does really.

I'm sure she gets some good crowd support from time to time but then so do lots of people. There's only two players in each match, it's not hard to get people cheering for you. That hardly means she is "one of the popular players", she is not a household name and remains generally unknown to the Championship crowd. I know about 8 people going to Wimbledon this year and none of them would have an idea who she is.
Two time quarter finalist and one time semi finalist means Sabine gets more noticed at Wimbledon than any of the other slams for sure.

Also to challenge your theory, here's a video
