Sabine @ Australian Open 2012

Sabine Lisicki won yesterday against Svetlana Kuznetsova 2-6 6-4 6-2 in her 3rd round in sunny Melbourne. After struggling in the first set and beginning of the 2nd set where she just didn't find her game at a score of 2-6 1-3 she turned the game around and fought back with amazing ground shots and good services. Kuznetsova didn't give up and hit some very hard to get angles, but Sabine responded well and turned her 4th match point to reach the australian open 4th round for her first time.

There world no. 4 Maria Sharapova waits for her, beiing in top form and having lost no more then 5 games until now in the tournament. The match takes place tomorrow in the night session at Rod Laver Arena, the Center Court of the Australian Open, at 7:30 pm local time in Melbourne.
