Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

So dissapointing that Lucie couldn't finish it off, but hopefully there'll be better things to come later in the year, and at least she lost the title to someone who deserved it like Dokic. I think her fans have suffered even more then Lucie supporters First title she won in nine years. Does everyone have faith that Lucie will win another title before 2017??

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Lucie drew Barrois in IW first round, and if she wins Petkovic...tough, considering she always sucks at IW and Barrois changes the pace well...I'd be happy if she wins a match, that doesn't often happen for her here

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

I fully expect Lucie to lose this match not only is she the first day of MD, but also the first match...she would've just got there and she'd still be jetlagged for sure.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Wow!!! She wins 76(9) 67(5) 60. A great result to see as I sit here right after getting my wisdom teeth out. She should be really proud of that win. After losing the second set tiebreak and with what happened last week she could have easily fallen apart. But to win the set 60 is so impressive. Great job to Lucie!

And 18 aces??? Holy crap!

Oh, and 10/11 break points won is impressive too.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Damn, what a match! Only could follow on livescore, but it was still highly entertaining. That first set, wow... never have I been so happy to see her win a first set. Her stamina has to be top-notch... either that or Barrois played like a zombie in the final set, as she had a bunch of DFs. Lucie was still hitting aces all over though.

Loved one part in the first when Lucie aced, then DF'd, then aced on second serve to win the game. May not be too rare, but it seems to reflect Lucie's style of play recently... still the occasional lapse, but she bounces back much better, I think.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

she probably should have won the 2nd set. At 4-4 she was 0-40 on Barrois serve but did not break. But at least she won match

Nice jinx, David. Just what she needed to prove us wrong.

If only that was right. I believe that is BP saved, which is still very impressive nonetheless! She was actually 4/14, so not that great.
As the poster before said she probably could have done it in straights, but her impressive serving prevailed emphatically in the third.

18 aces has to be a record for her!

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Yeah me being convinced she would lose must've been the perfect jinx I was shocked when I saw the scoreline...first of all, finally she won one of these epic tiebreaks...after losing them against Zvonareva and Dokic and after losing the 2nd set 7-6 to a bagel in the third She would've been tired too...more credit to the new coach, who was making her work hard in the off season. Can't believe she hit 18 aces, and won a match in IW
