Re: Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi! -- Lucie at the 2013 Australian Open
It might sound strange but I knew this would happen...as soon as I saw Duckworth/Kavcic was going up and down and really long, I knew she would lose...it happens every time she has to play after a mens 5 setter...she isn't ready to go. She relies a lot on her timing and if shes had to get ready stop get ready stop shes never got her timing for the match. And that's what happened, she was just blasting everything long. It was awful. Losing the break then totally flopping, coming back then losing 8 points in a row. Just awful tennis, and Jovanovski did nothing, she just waited for Lucie to miss. Awful. So disappointing given the last 2 days she's looked so good, but imo the schedule screwed her here a bit.
This so much. Jovanivski was literally BEGGING Lucie to get back in the match and she just couldn't do it. But this is a really bad loss. She's going to lose her top 20 position here very shortly if she doesnt turn things around. Seeing how shes not doing well I would hope she would enter some smaller events here and get some confidence going.
