    Lisicki hits way too many unforced errors. Kerber is a little bit of a pusher. I noticed that Kerber signs autographs right handed. Is she a natural right hander like Rafa? I still think Lisicki has more potential.

    Kerber can push the ball from time to time but she can put some heat on it too, over all a good match with drama and everything.

    lisicki is a huge hitter but she needs to develope more of a brain (talking about tennis intelligence here) and fitness/footwork.

    she is not the fittest girl and always injured plus she swings for the fences too much sometimes.

    she definitely does have a lot of potential, I think the most out of the german girls (lisicki, petko, görges, kerber)

    lets admit it, Lisicky choked. you are a big server and didn't hit any big serves when serving for the match at 5-4. what is up with that ?

    Yeah she totally blew it! She was up 5-3 and didn't capitalize on it. Her serve started to get iffy, and so did her backhand.

    It was a pretty good match.

    It seems like the females such at hitting topspin backhands.

    Nahh, Lisicki isn't consistent, she has a big game, but for it come together will be very hard, she will have to work very hard if she wants to play that type of game with one shot wonder.

    Kerber is more consistent, moves a lot better, better player overall, deserved to win.

    I'm surprised Lisicki got that much better from FO to Wimbledon.

    At the end was a great match.

    Watched a bit of the first set; Sabine looked very nervous in the beginning, and her game was riddled with errors. Doesn't help that she had never beaten Kerber before :(

    It was boring and painful to watch compared to Petra vs Serena.

    This is a phenominal opportunity for Kerber to make a Wimbledon final. She has to use her left handed play to her advantage.

    wta tennis is judged by combined hotness of players. anything over 13/20 is worth watching

    lisicki = 8. kerber = solid 6.5. therefore this is good tennis

    otoh swilliams = 2. kvitova = 5. bad tennis

    :twisted: Right on. As I said elsewhere, Sab's thighs alone will make young men blush.

    Is Lisick the woman with the fangs?
