Sabine in two. In fact, I think she's going to win the whole thing.

I'm going w/ Kanepi, possibly in 3. I think she is channeling her 2010 run here.

I think this is a case where the giant killer doesn't go down. Sabine in straights.

I too believe Sabine pulls through, but in three due to nerves linked to expectations.

Lisicki has a solid grass game and a big serve. There's the theory in sports that you should pull for the player who beat your favorite to win, proving that they're actually that good. Wink

Sabine in strights. In fact i think she has the game to win it all. But does she have the nerve? I don't think so. She'll lose with Li or Petra.

Boom Boom doesn't have a letdown and comes through in straights. Good job Lisicki! She reaches the SF of Wimby for the 2nd time in her career.

I like Sabine and have for years. It is so refreshing to see her playing to her potential on what happens to be the biggest stage in the sport. I sincerely hope we see her in the final this weekend. That would be grand.
