Sabine Lisicki prepping for 2009

Sabine Lisicki had a breakthrough season in 2008. She entered the year ranked #237 in the world, and finished on the rise at #54. She posted wins over Lindsay Davenport, Anna Chakvetadze, Dinara Safina and Shahar Peer and reached the third round of her first career Grand Slam, the Australian Open. Lisicki is clearly one of the players to watch in 2009, as her powerful groundstrokes and big serve make her a threat every time she steps on the court.
