Great match to watch
Both players played really well (positive winners/UE ratio for both), Lucie especially was quite amazing.

Flavia lost her head over a bad linecall at 4-4 Long time since I saw that happening like this
But apart from her 2nd serve, her game looks quite in place atm, I'm pleased with it

Hope Safarova keeps this up for another match, she deserves it.

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

What a week for Lucie this is. Her level is so high, and she isn't having patches in the match where she disappears. Such a great result for her, and anything can happen in the final. So happy

lucie deserved to win, but flavia had plenty of chances... she really let it slip at 4-4 with her reaction to the fault call on the first point, i think it gave safa confidence too

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier

Re: Paris SF: Lucie Safarova def. Flavia Pennetta (2) 4-6 6-3 6-4

As I said in the WWW thread it would come down to serving. Flavia had a bunch of aces but more second serves. It took only 1 break in the 3rd set for Lucie to clinch it.

Very good match from both but Lucie on this surface is killer, very very difficult player.

However, I wanted so much for final between Elena and Flavia but it seems like destiny: they will never play against eachother...

Flavia Arguing with the umpire at 4-4 was really unnecessary. She made double fault after that and another second serve then. She lost it in that moment. :/

So proud of Lucie. No doubt this tournament suits her, but she's maturing as well. It's easy to forget she's still quite young and likely hasn't peaked yet in her career.

After all the close losses of last year I especially like seeing her notch come from behind wins, especially against a player of Pennetta's consistency. Though to be honest the match was always on Lucie's racquet.

Smart point construction at times from Lucie, and it's obvious she's come to play and win.

As others have said, this was a quality match with a lot of strong rallies and winners.
