Re: Us Open Series 2014

I get the feeling nobody sees her coming in this event. She was impressive against Hantuchova. Playing at this level I can see her reaching the semis, seriously. Safarova, Jankovic or Kerber are not unbeatable. Peng could create trouble as well.

It's all a matter of keeping the fantastic energy she has displayed so far.

Looks like she succeeds in focusing at slams at the moment. Good!

Re: Us Open Series 2014

This was going to be a tough match for Alize, and that's the way it played out. She did have her chances, but Lucie was the aggressor hitting more winners and converting on more break point chances. Still Alize played pretty steady, saved a match point in the second set, and took advantage of Lucies unforced errors in the second set breaker. Alize fell behind by two service breaks in the thrid, and although she clawed her way back to 4-5, it was too big a hole to dig out of. Lucie double faulted on her first match point but held her nerve to close out the match.

Oh well, she fought very well, I'm still proud of her.

Lucie is a best athlete (another size), she took advantage in that department. Alizé had to fight harder. She almost succeeded.
