Sabine at Tournament of Champions in Bali
Sabine Lisicki has been invited to the Tournament of Champions in Bali thanks to her winning the tournaments in Birmingham and Dallas earlier this year. She reached the semi-finals there when she had to forfeit due to pain in her back.
In the first round she beat slovakian Daniela Hantuchova in a thrilling match 7-5 6-2. After being 0-4 down in the third set of the semi-finals, she pulled out of the tournament against Anabel Medina Garrigues from Spain. Only the best ranked women that won an international wta tournament this year get invited to participate in Bali. After 2009 Sabine was there for the second time.
