A lot of credit for that goes to the new coach, she's been working hard with Lucie on so many things and it paid off. The 3rd set was disappointing until 5-2 because Lucie was up in every single game but she couldn't convert, but then she really knuckled down and toughed it out. The game at 5-4 was so hard for me because she kept choking, then saved the MP with a shot that just went in I think I even fistpumped a few times She needs to work a bit on her 2nd serve and her backhand when it comes deep, but she'll take so much confidence from this win...definitely a successful start to 2011!

Photos to come!
how did you feel when Shahar challenged the shot Lucie made a match point, which was barely in?

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Awesome result to find out and nice to see Lucie be the suprise winner for a change. I wish I could have seen it.

Poor David though You must have been so anxious in that final set, thinking this was a typical Lucie match, bet you were thrilled she pulled it out.
We need you to keep going to watch as she keeps winning! Although you could be in for more agony as all Lucie's previous matches with Pavly have gone to three sets I hope she can get another win against her.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Yeah, I even fistpumped in the third set just happened...embarrassing. Ive got tickets until Friday, so if she makes the final she'd have to do it without me but I'm not even thinking final, Pavs is gonna be tough and she seems to be serving well. They did practice together last friday though, and Lucie was beating her But I'm happy, she keeps doing well in Brisbane!

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Yay Lucie!!! I was watching it on TV, and it was great to see her come back from 2-5 down, but the match only finished about 30 seconds before the broadcast was meant to, I would have been so pissed if they ended the broadcast and Lucie won and I didn't see it.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Really! At home it's ok but in front of some casual fans it was probably a bit Ah well
That's good news then, yeah I agree I'm not being overly optimistic as it is Lucie but from what you've described so far, she has a great chance of doing even better here. That's good that she was beating her, at least she know's her game a bit. I havn't followed her for as long, I had no idea of her great record in Brisbane!

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

It includes all of south east Queensland, every time she's played here she's made at least the QF, and she won the gold coast tournament once! But yeah the fistpump I did wasn't too big, no one saw it except my sister but still I didn't even realise I was doing it I was just so into the match.

Her coach is giving her some really good advice though, I really like her influence.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Lucie isn't on centre court tomorrow 2nd match on court 1...and it's supposed to rain heavy as well I know the court is covered but they usually have to go off anyway because the rain blows in. Anyway I'll watch it if it doesn't rain, we'll see

I watched Lucie's full practice today, and her coach was making her work on so many different things and giving her really good advice, which seemed to work immediately during the practice...so I'm really liking her influence.
