She's no longer sponsored by Adidas but that doesn't mean "Impossible is Nothing" doesn't apply. She's had an absolutely stellar year, and if not for that pesky Li Na lady, she'd be holding down the fort for all of China. She's already won more matches this year than she played last year, only Caro, Bepa, Nails, and Mono have been to more semifinals this year than she has, I saw some unverified stats on Twitter that said she's second in wins this year, and she just cracked the top 20 this week.
And she gave this great answer to the question of whether Nails' RG triumph gives her confidence:
"I think it doesn't matter if she win Grand Slam or not win Grand Slam to me. I think I always have to believe in myself because if I don't believe then why I go play, right?"
She's got Boom Boom in the semis tomorrow. First semifinals for Sabine since Luxembourg 2009. She was, needless to say, happy.
