Thumbs up Lucie Kaňková

I was about to update about Lucie's success in Israel of a couple weeks ago in the Czech juniors thread, but given she's now well inside of the Top 50 - and actually ahead of Monika in the rankings now, despite being younger - and that next year will probably be a big busy and challenging one (I suppose she'll play the junior Slams, and she'll probably try pro tournaments for real), here we go with this thread

Lucie was born on January 11, 2000 in Prague, she's training at the big TK Spartak Praha club.

She's won 2 titles this year: G1 Chief Minister's Cup ITF Malaysian World Junior Tennis Championships in Malaysia in March (she was the 16th seed, and she successively upset top seed Naiktha Bains 4 & 3 in R3, 7th seed Mihika Yadav 6-4 7-6(4) in QF, 9th seed Bunyawi Thamchaiwat 6-3 7-6(4) in SF, and 5th seed Olivia Tjandramulia 6-2 7-6(5) 2-2 ret. in the final ), and 2 weeks ago she won G2 Matan Gafniel Raanana Open in Israel (she was the top seed, beat 9th seed Daniela Vismane 7-6(5) 6-1 in the final ).

She has 2 more SF appearances this year: at G2 Panaceo ITF Junior in Austria in May, and at G2 Hong-Kong Junior Championships last month.

She has actually already played her first junior Slam at Wimbledon this year, but she was unlucky to draw Viktoria Kuzmova in Q1' and she lost 7-6(5) 4-6 2-6 to her. Viktoria qualified and reached the SFs in the end...
She also made her pro debuts at the WTA Prague tournament this spring, she received a QWC there. Sadly she drew top seed Lucie Hradecka in Q1, lost 1 & 2 to her.

I'm well aware that although the 2 tournaments she's won this year are technically big in terms of grade, they're actually pretty weak because the fields in Asia or the Middle-East are generally much weaker than in Europe or in the US. So her ranking is probably a bit inflated (I think she rather ranks between 50 and 75 atm), however it's not like she's spent the whole year trying to rack up cheap points in Asia or South America. Actually, she's played only 4 tournaments outside of Europe (out of the 14 she's played this year): the one in Israel, and 3 in Asia that were decently strong (the G1 in Malaysia, the GA in Osaka, and the G2 in HG).

Lucie's currently sitting at a CHR of 33, having started the year at #210. Hopefully she plays the US mini-swing in the next weeks, and start making more waves next year!

Re: Lucie Kaňková

Sadly she lost a close match to (WC)Baijing Lin in R2 yesterday, 4-6 6-7(4)

She spent the whole match running after the score, but at the end of the match she went *3-0 up in the TB and she didn't take advantage of that position and of her opponent's obvious nervousness (she unsuccessfully served twice for the match iirc), instead she just collapsed (hitting 2 pathetic DFs in a row for a start...). Not saying she would have won but she could or rather should have easily taken it to a 3rd set

She seems very frail mentally, and I had guessed she was just by looking at the scorelines of quite a few of her matches (which were screaming massive meltdown/chokejob). Other than that, she's a pretty nice game, her groundies are pleasant to watch even if a bit lightweight, her serve needs some work though, it keeps letting her down.

She looked like she was holding back her tears at the end of match
