US Open

Sabine Lisicki got into the round of 16 on the US Open, where she got stopped by number two of the world Vera Zwonareva from Russia. That was her best result in Flushing Meadows, New York and got her further back to the top of the world.

On her way to the final eight Sabine defeated Alona Bondarenko and the american wildcard Irina Falconi both in straigt sets. Unfortunately her match against Venus Williams in the second round was cancelled in the last minute when the multiple grand slam winner had to forfeit due to injury. Get well soon, Venus!
