Re: Back on clay after 3 years: Sabine’s 2019 clay season
Unsurprisingly - she's just not used to playing two singles matches back-to-back and it was always going to show; next time around may be better - she lost, 6-3, 6-1. Earlier today she won because she served well and was able to use it as a weapon; just now, though, she wasn't able to find her service rhythm. A shame, because it would have been lovely if she could have progressed here, but not really a loss worth much attention. Adds a slightly bittersweet tinge to things, but still a good day; still an important one, a massive (hard) step forward.
