I think Lucic is not a partner of quality enough than Kveta was. Kveta on the other hand has Srebotnik with whom she knows she won a GS before and had a good run at the AO with. However, I always saw more potential in ALG/Kveta than in Kata/Kveta because peak ALG/Kveta > peak Katarina/Kveta.... Srebotnik is just a player that on average plays more solid tennis (apart from that AO SF where they both where shitty )
Tough call... Let's see how they peform when both get back to their original partners.
ALG definitely hits the ball a lot bigger...when I watched Kveta and Katarina lose to Safarova/Babos in Sydney there was just way too much power coming at them, Srebotnik was a little too over powered considering she is the bigger hitter of the team. She also doesn't hit a very heavy ball, whereas Safarova and Babos do. That said, ALG matches that weight of shot, but also makes a billion errors.
Congrats on winning Premier Paris title, Anna-Lena/Kveta !
I love this team. I think they played well because they had no pressure this week
BTW Anna-Lena replaced Sabine and makes German Fed Cup team vs Slovakia
Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour." Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."
