Sabine Lisicki shines alongside her beau at the Luxembourg player party


Sabine Lisicki Luxembourg Open 2014 player party

Sabine Lisicki tumbled out of the BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open already in the second round, but the early loss by no means affected the German’s wide smile and she was glowing at the tournament’s player party.

The third-seeded Lisicki was defeated by a rising Czech talent Denisa Allertova, the world No.145 who has made the semifinals this week, but even though the trophy is not the thing Lisicki will take home from Luxembourg, she did win something: voted as the best-dressed player of the evening, Lisicki won a dress from Jitrois.

Sabine Lisicki and Oliver Pocher

Maybe Sabine’s boyfriend Oliver Pocher is to be credited for her glow? He’s been with her all week, including at the party. Remember, our photographer Jimmie48 spotted him at the press conference?

Also enjoying the evening of food and dancing were second seed Alize Cornet, who just like Lisicki fell in the second round, Timea Bacsinszky, Monica Niculescu, now-retired former world No.2 Jana Novotna, and others.

The tournament’s top seed was Andrea Petkovic, who struggled heavily against Pauline Parmentier in the first round and lost in straight sets. Her father told Bild that “She’s going through a difficult phase and will take a break” and he also said “She has problems with her wrist and doesn’t feel fit. Private (problem) is nothing serious”.

  1. It wasn’t the stands but the press conference actually, he usually accompanies her there.

    Never seen any other boyfriend/husband do that 🙂

  2. Jimmie48, nice of him! And I remember that the public didn’t really consider him the best option for Sabine. You’re from Germany, you must know it…

  3. As someone who considers himself the best option for Sabine that this relationship is still going on is killing me. And I’m sure approximately 550,000 people on all 6 inhabited continents feel the same way! Wasn’t this guy hated in Germany more than just about anyone even BEFORE he started dated Sweet Sabine? I mean Radek Stepankek is more likeable! Oliver Pocher seems like the American comedian Gallagher without the talent, goodwill, and hard work! And watermelon smashing. And she was dating that swimmer before who was a real jerk to her, anyone recall that? Wouldn’t sit with her when they went out to basketball games. (Yeah, I know more than is is healthy about Sabine’s love life… all the reason I should be taking her to Don Shula’s Steak House before a Miami Heat game and not pressing her to invite me in at the end of the evening cause I respect her and she has practice.
    I feel I’ve revealed too much about about myself.
    My point is she seems sweet as hell and I wish she’d find someone nice. Even if it’s not me (I’ve made some promises to Vesnina . . . none that she’s probably aware of but still I’m a a man of honor.)

  4. Michael D McGrory, you’re hilarious! 🙂 I’m always pleased to have a new reader in the comments, especially if it’s a man of honor 🙂
