The commentators are so excellent and spot on for Lisicki. She was up 6-3 2-0 over Babos and they asked: "Who is gonna win?" They wouldn't dare to say.

Then at 3-2 break up and serving, Sabine started hitting these errors we've seen from her in all of her losses this year. I was sure it was gonna be difficult for her then. And all opponents know: Just stay tough, she'll likely crumble.

Quickly afterwards, Sabine loses the second set to Babos. Has looks on her faces saying "oh no, it's happening again" (referencing her win-loss ratio this year).

Commentators keep saying: She's a human being, we love to watch this human side, we all know the pressure, but it's still sad to watch with Sabine given her talent. "She's simply dissolved".

And then they ask: "How do you turn your brain off and just play tennis?"

They say Sabine should rather play low-level matches to learn winning again and have fun rather than keeping to compete at the highest level.

So onto set 3 then, sad to watch.

What caused the retirement? Have been watching the Lisicki psychodrama

Easier hold takes Lisicki to 5-2 in the decider. She does deserve this but still headcasey enough to lose.
