Lucie drew Petkovic in round 1, then probably Zvonareva in round 2. So..again no chance of making round 3 But Petkovic is in good form, she's been having good results and I don't know if Lucie will be able to beat her in her bad form state. Of course, Petkovic is also able to make horrid errors and choke, hopefully Lucie plays well
Hmm odd, I swear I saw that she was on the preliminary entry list, dunno why she wouldn't play there when she made QF last year..but I don't care either, considering her form. Although I'd rather she played there than Moscow.
Damn. She's just never, ever going to be consistent I think. That's not Lucie. What I do hope for realistically is that she has more tournaments (and hopefully big ones) where she can peak at. Like how she does at that Paris Indoors tournament.

She is consistent now, consistenly bad...She played so great in 2007, but after that she just reached 3 round in Grand Slam one time. She seems to have no improvement over 3 years, just feel disappointed to her.
We can't forget that this year she made the Paris final, then Stuttgart QF, Rome QF and Madrid SF beating a lot of good players..her first half of the year was very good. Her 2nd half of the year got halted by injury and she has always been a little slow recovering her confidence after injury. The main problem is her poor performance in the slams...hopefully that picks up next year, but since she probably will fall out of the AO seedings, who knows what draw she will get there.
Lucie can already only be ranked 32 at the end of this week, at best. So that's disappointing, I wanted her to be seeded at AO so I would be able to see at least one of her matches on an outside court..but being unseeded she could go anywhere
