I could tell she was pretty upset about this one but I hope she realizes how well she has done this week compared to last year. Aside from the complete collapse in the first set, we got to see some of the old Lucie in this match and I have a feeling she was a lot better in this match than she was last year which is good. Just a couple of un-timely forehands in the net and double faults cost her the match against a Top20 player. Not too bad.

Vika is so good, she hits so hard but is so consistent, good win

Lucie is flashier, but too wild.

Lucie completely loss concentration after getting to the lead. She was playing awesome but just lost it. Started hitting it short and let Vika get some rhythm and let her back into the match.

She couldn't string two points together by the end of it and struggled to construct points and stay patient. At least there are signs of her playing better again.

Lucie was steamrolling Azarenka, 5-2 set point, and then the double faults crept in...

She's getting her game back though.

To me, Lucie's way more fun to watch than most of the tour, so it's good to see her starting to post results again.
