During the weekend Sabine Lisicki won both the first edition of the Texas Tennis Open and the inaugural Sony Ericsson Xperia Hot Shots, a competition which followed six WTA players and gave tennis fans access to their lives through the Sony Ericsson Facebook page and YouTube channel. The German won thanks to the votes of fans on Facebook.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Hot Shots project was launched with Maria Sharapova during the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami in March and the players that took part besides Lisicki were Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Sorana Cirstea, Heather Watson, Alize Cornet and Dominika Cibulkova.
At the US Open which started today, Lisicki, who is seeded 22nd, will play Alona Bondarenko in the first round. (source: WTA Tour)
