Palermo 2R: (3) Errani def. (Q) Lucic 60 76



I'm not sure if I can enjoy watching Lucic. It's like a lottery. In the end I was scared when Sara was to hit her junk 2nd serve, cuz Lucic would do all sorts of terrible mistakes there. Glad that she raised her game so much in the 2nd, but her positioning and footwork are terrible

LOL at Lucic getting angry with herself in the tie-break. What does she expect?

Still some returns from her.

Re: Palermo: Errani def. Lucic 60 76

Well done Sara.
First set was awful from Lucic, but still Sara did pretty good, as far as she had to do anything at all. Second set, Mirjana was actually hitting some balls in, and Sara's serve was, well, Sara's serve, which made it quite close. Glad Sara took it in 2

Good luck vs Kaia!

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

Lucic seriously looked like a club player in the first set and only won 5 points in total, but really turned it around by the end. Encouraging signs for the rest of the summer.

Lucic We haven't been missing much since her departure for Challengers - her game consists of 2 tactical(?) moves: full force forehand and full force backhand

Quite boring to watch a player who can't even keep every second shot in court. She really needs to adjust her power according to her court positioning and her position to the ball, cause the wta is getting more consistent and she will never win anything playing like this.

I'm always shocked that people are shocked when Lucic often makes many errors per match.

This is the overwhelming characteristic of her career, and it will never rectify itself to a huge degreee now.

I for one though, loved the aggression/recklessness in her game

I agree, it's expected. It's just about how many winners she can mix in among the plethora of errors. In the second set today, she almost did it, but a couple points here and there made the difference. It's not like Errani did much, she pushed and looped on everything. One could argue she was just as one dimensional as Lucic, in that sense.

Is Lucic like Sprem then? Haven't seen Lucic live since that WC-uglyfest vs Kimiko in Auckland.
