R2 Hobart: Risa Ozaki def. Lucie Safarova 26 63 75

Risa is quite interesting to watch IMO ,so good for her. And she is so cute talking english Hope she can beat Niculescu.

As for Lucie,as fan i am glad that she lost to Ozaki and not for millionth time against Sliceulescu.

Safarova now looks like is in decline. I thought it was injury last year.

In fact, Lucie has only lost to Monica twice, although the two losses (6-2 6-0) & (6-0 6-1) were so resounding that it is understandable that it feels like more than two. Actually Lucie has been quite fortunate in that she has avoided Monica in her draws for over 4 years.

We are definitely very much overdue another Safarova v Niculescu match I'd say.

Re: R2 Hobart: Risa Ozaki def. Lucie Safarova 26 63 75

Safarova starting to develop that thing when you always feel /fear she misses first in a rally.

why is that? Hope im wrong..

She peaked in 2015 then the ilnesss and not been the same since

Lucie I was so sure she's going to snatch that title here.

It seems that Lucie played her best under the Canadian coach Steckley, there was a great chemistry. The rumor has it Steckley‘s wife didn’t like it (maybe even became jealous) and pushed her husband to the wall.

Re: R2 Hobart: Risa Ozaki def. Lucie Safarova 26 63 75

I like Lucie, but her top 5 year was a bit of an anomaly in her career - she was a top 20 player for so long before that and she caught a couple of good draws and peaked at the right times in 2014-15. But even if I don't think she would have sustained that anyway, this has been a pretty poor return from injury. Nearly a year back and her ranking outside the top 60 is exactly reflective of her level.

Good win for Ozaki though. Interested to see how high she can get. Third WTA-level QF or better in the past half year.
