Yes Sabine! What a fun, unexpected run from her. Projected to go back up to around #175/176 which is starting to allow her into qualies for some of the smaller WTA tournaments.

Just following the scoreline, this match felt like a mess!

So happy for Sabine! Absolutely did not expect her to get past Niculescu!

So happy for Sabine! :) I am really hoping this run sets her up nicely for a good 2018. So great to see her toughing out two rough battles this week and against Hibino she showed what is still in her.
Not sure how much she has left in the tank against Kozlova, who had three really strong wins here. But no matter what this is a success already. :D

Sabine 64 W - 56 UEs
Monica 13 W - 14 UEs
I can hardly remember such a huge difference. :lol: Sabine also had 28 bps in total. :eek: Also crazy to think that this was their 8th battle already.

Great fighting spirit from Sabine! :woohoo:

She was down *0:3 in second set and 3:4* in third set and found a way through the trailing and Niculescu's unorthodox slices.

Back in a WTA semifinal since a long time. Keep going Sabine! :D

Another big choke from Niculescu vs Sabine, point for 6-4 4-0

Same thing happened in Hong Kong.

Without Niculescu choking this h2h would be something like 6-1

Phew, what a mess that was :tape:

So glad Bine took this one, well done.

I think it suggests that Sabine's on a roll.

horrible to watch, I don't want to remember how she won it against one-leg Monica
but congrats Sabine, it was about time to get some pts onto your account

Ooh, that was disappointing. Really disappointing.

(Not that there's anything wrong with Lisicki, she's lovely, but when Monica's playing, it's rather hard to care about that side of the net.)

Monica played well and stayed focused, except that she gradually lost all confidence in her own serve. That seemed the difference in the end to me.
