Hradecka is very dangerous indoors.

Hopefully Petra's team can still pull off the victory.

Thank you Lucie

I hope miss "unbeatable goat" gets a few more losses like this in Australia.

Re: Czech League Final: Lucie Hradecka ends Kvitova's INDOOR streak 6:7(6) 7:6(5) 7:5

Fantastic and fearless performance by Lucie.

Great serving, returning, cross-court winners, mentally strong. Even scored two backhand winners off Petra's lefty slice serve BTW, she is yet to play doubles in 90 minutes' time

Petra Looked a bit tired and rusty and far from top form. Excuse: She's after an intensive 2-week fitness training session and has been playing tennis for just one week. Unlike in Istanbul, Petra was extremely shy of going to the net. I hope she will not become a baseliner with a goat lefty serve.

Notes:
- it was a very fast indoor court, i.e. Petra's favorite surface
- Petra could have won the match in two sets, but wasted a set point by an unforced error
- it was a completely even match overall and no difference in their rankings was visible

Anyway, nice encouraging win for Lucie and a good lesson for Petra !

Hradecka can be scary as fuck.



I'd almost say she has tendencies to hit bigger than Kvitova, and indoors does to her what it does to Kvitova too probably.

Even though it wasn't on the WTA, congrats Lucie for finally saving the WTA!!! You came so close in the first round of Wimbledon 2009. Today you finish what you started. What a beautiful story of courage and determination.

2016 saviors of the WTA
