Lisicki vs Linette by Marci
First round of WTA tournament in Kuala Lumpur gives us match between 2 struggling tennis player Sabine Lisicki (31.) from Germany and Magda Linette (98.) from Poland. So far Magda won 1 game in WTA against Wang (133.) and 1 on ITF against some Chinese kid Zhang while Sabine have too 2 wins (both on WTA) against Hercog (82,) and Cetkovska (130.), both opponents are similar to Linette and both were won in straight sets.
Lisicki has incredible serve and thats all, but it will be enough to win against Magda in straight sets because Linette is one of rare players which are in ever worse form than Sabine so in this case I believe that 2 years older much bigger name will even she is in bad form win this without any problems. Even tho Lisicki lost last time here against Dulgheru in first round we should look this like opportunity for her to win more points and finally start winning as this is great opponent for her.
