    Is Sabine Winter injured? Her scores make no sense.

    Not anymore, at least not two days ago.

    First match was ok-ish, Liu Jia is a very good player.

    Second match a catastrophic mixture of small mistakes, tactical inadequacies and Meshref bringing a couple back she wouldn´t have on other days.
    Sabine was never in this match and offered Meshref full opportunities with almost every service return.

    And as so often, no break between the sets and no time-out changed anything, so as so often I wonder if this German trainer/coach Jie Schöpp isn´t able to help or doesn´t want to (as it´s so comfortable winning titles with two "Chinese" players plus Solja and hold Sabine down as number four to warm them up ...)

    POTA got destroyed in the last set... her style of play is too awkward with her risky FH flat shots, and that short pips BH where she twists so much her wrist on each stroke.

    I think her huge boobs are also clearly a handicap for her.

    She got to where she was in life with all those things. That you only notice them when she loses and not when she wins and loses in a close match 3-4 is puzzling. Cheng is a better player, nothing wrong with losing to a better player. And Pota destroys many players with that style.

    It's a risky style and is what it is. I used to play like that for most of my TT career (back hand serves, loop backspin, hit topspin) and I like it even if I no longer do it and may even have to go back to it.

    actually i've seen only the last set. I felt sorry for POTA. Actually I like her, i remember having seen play some memorable matches before. She had a very good year at the World Cup a few years ago.

    Yes her style is very risky, I'm sure she beats a lot of players like this and her awkward style used to surprise some of her opponents. But in the end it limited her game. I don't think she won the European Championships. Samara with her more classic attacking game managed to win it (against the ex-Chinese players)

    I really like Ishikawa's aggressive pivots.

    Ishikawa totally lost her nerves... What a disappointing performance...

    Sometimes, we act like technique and winning is what the sport is about. Her style is also easier on her body and height than the style that Samara plays. Who knows if she would still be playing today if she was a looper?

    Biggest win for Lee Ho Ching and possibly for HK player for that matter.
    Only managed to watch from 2nd half of 6sets when Lee was 4-8 behind. What a win for her and HK!!

    All these 7 set games have backed up the schedule - we need a 4-0. Come on, Hurricane Hirano! Clear it up!

    HDK's win over LSW doesn't count?

    What an epic thriller between Doo Hoi Kem and Chen Szu-Yu. Looks like Doo Hoi Kem did everything right, but made way to many unforced errors to seal the deal
