Important for Sabine to start her year with a win. :yeah: Hopefully such a tough one will be good for her match practice as well!

Worst slam finalist flukes win after Yuxuan choked from 1-5 15-40 ,ew. Both had about 12 dfs in a match,mess . Yuxuan had 3-2 in tb after lisicki missed easy shot as usual,than yuxuan dfed and missed some easy shots after it :help: her technique is really weird and wonky,her body positioning should be better.

She looks out of shape, not a surprising struggle.

Note that this was Sabine's first match back after knee surgery so a degree of rustiness was inevitable. Her level was very up and down o/c, but what was consistent was her attitude which was excellent - she never stopped trying and even during the bad phases of the match kept putting on pressure and creating chances. Once things clicked together at two match points down (!) there wasn't actually a lot Zhang could do in response. Encouraging start :)

Neither of them played particularly well but Sabine's experience saw her through in the end. She probably wouldn't have fared so well against a better caliber of opponent from the position she was in. But she can only improve for this win.
