Bastad R2: Safarova def Sprem 2-6 7-5 6-3

Pretty ugly match, Safarova was terrible in the first set and then the match was just messy...but good fight from Lucie to pull it out. 22 DFs between them, 11 each

Safarova looked like she even didnīt want to win this match, second set won just because Sprem canīt hit a ball in

Yeah, not doubt Safarova was truly terrible in the 1st set and agree it wasnt a 'classic' match, which will go over in history. What it though lacked in quality it made up for in tension ..

Lucie has those days where she looks flat, and like it doesn't worry her when she is losing...she needs to cut them out.

Although, this is the first time I've seen her win when she has looked like that.

I have to agree. It's been many times that Lucie gives the impression that she don't care about the match...

Doubt it If it happened just this time, maybe (though you can't really be gutted with a Wimbledon final ).

Re: Bastad R2: Safarova def Sprem 2-6 7-5 6-3

If only Sprem could deal with a high ball, ugh, all those sitter second serves netted and earlier on when she was coming forward for an easy putaway and just UE after UE

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...
Hantuchova : Goerges : Johansson : Rybarikova : Li

Learning to love/Liking the look of...
Zakopalova : Lucic : Krajicek : Cetkovska : Cibulkova
Gajdosova : Govortsova : Olaru : Robson : Pliskova

Wow Karolina was just so terrible!
First half of second set was UE after UE, wouldn't be able to hit inside court to safe her life.
Looked like se didn't mind too much about her game or to win or lose.

Lucie handled it all just fine to win despite no rytham whatsoever.
