It took her seven match points to get there but Sabine Lisicki blasted her way to her first career WTA title, and a Premier one to boot (heh).
Tough loss for Boots, who looked sluga step slow and completely overwhelmed by Sabine's aggressive game. But Sabine exposed the weakness in Boots' game that has plagued many a counterpunching retriever: the game is not in your hands and you can always get hit off the court. The knock on Boots has always been that she lacks a weapon. That showed today.
