Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Even though Sveta retired, still a nice win. A quarterfinal should help ease her nerves heading into the Australian Open. Li Na is winnable, and Lucie won't be sick this time around for their match unlike in Cincinnati.

Lucie and Vera are about to start their doubles.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

It's nice to see Lucie with a good partner in doubles. Maybe she can actually win consecutive matches in a doubles draw for once. :P

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Lucie seems to be in great form for the beginning of the year

Hopefully she goes deep in Sydney. Na Li is next, tough opponent but a win is possible.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Definitely possible if she plays well, but the leftie swing and forehand into the BH doesn't work as well against Nana, because she loves her BH more than her FH. Hopefully Lucie plays a smart clean match.

3rd on court 1 for singles, 5th on court 1 for doubles.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

All credit to Lucie for recovering from her loss last week, two strong wins regardless of either Ivanovic or Kuznetsova able to play their best. If Lucie can consistently serve well against Na she'll stand a good chance as Na was broken relatively easily in her last match and might still be a bit rusty. Good that's she's getting some more practise before AO on the doubles court as well.

Now I've finally found,

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

I think she has a good chance against Li. So close to her career best ranking.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Petkovic withdrew from AO, which means Lucie will now be seeded 24...so she gets 9-16 seed for round 3, which could be Kim or Serena so that'll happen...but tbh I'd be happy if she made round 3.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Not really, Li Na was the better player, Lucie was really lucky to get to a TB..the conditions were awful and it was really hard to play well

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Indeed a loss against Li is not so disappointing (considering Li seems to be in correct form). Let's see what Lucie will do in AO

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

She did some good things depite the loss, she defeated two tough component, defend all her points, and make the QF close even she is under awful condition. She saved 6mp these day, maybe she is more metal stronger now
