It was all about Sabine Lisicki in Dallas last year. The tall German blasted her way through the draw, winning five matches for the loss of a mere 13 games in total to claim her third career title.

Lisicki is so tall, it's tough to get the ball out of her strike zone on hard courts and even the experienced Frenchwoman Aravane Rezai had few answers in the final as Lisicki crushed her 6-2, 6-1, not even facing a single break point.

"It was a tough one," Lisicki said afterwards. "I really had to hang in there in the beginning. Aravane's a tough player. You can't have any letdowns or else she'll play very well - she can really go for her shots. I had to make sure I went for mine today. I was really looking forward to another final," said Lisicki, now 3-2 in finals. "It has been an incredible week, and an incredible three months. I've picked up my game again and am playing so well. I'm just happy to be on the court again." 

Lisicki will find things a little tougher this year as she's up against the likes of world number seven Angelique Kerber, Jelena Jankovic and French Open quarter-finalist Yaroslava Shvedova.

“We are extremely pleased to once again have 11 players ranked in the top 50 in the world at our event,” tournament director Chris Giordano said. “We believe that this is one of the best women’s draws at this level in North America, and are ready for North Texans to be treated to this great level of tennis.”
