    After brief consideration, my prediction for Sabine's match:
    If it goes 3 sets, Lisicki will win. Otherwise, Stephens in 2.

    run 2

    Why are you looking for something to display your vintage verbal reactions? Not seemly for an Admin to wish death at whim, seriously.

    Just a series of volleys back and forth, watched by a sparse, docile crowd, punctuated on rare occasion by good displays of technical ability which doesn't carry far enough to make the game a watchable affair.

    I'd never go beyond watching the highlights.

    If you have the patience and attentiveness, Test cricket is a viable option. But I would still recommend 50 over matches. 20 over ones are too arcadish and crowd-pleasing.

    Definitely better when one has played the game, it's difficult to get into.

    Give this a watch if you haven't. Fantastic spectacle of a match. Probably the pinnacle of all ODI matches.

    One break means nothing in a Sharapova match, if anything holding serve is key.
