I think if Lucie can lift her form this is quite a nice draw, a qualifier to open. Other players in her section - Stosur who struggles on clay, Anna who retired in Warsaw and Safina who Lucie has a great record against.

I attended the match and I was deeply impressed by her performance. I haven't seen a player playing so well in quite a while. Except for that one game in the middle of the second set her serve was really on. I rarely have seen a women serving that good. She surely served like 10 aces, mostly in "critical" situations(e.g when serving for the first set etc.). In the first few games it looked a bit, as if Chakvetadze would be able to dominate from the baseline. But Lucie upped her game, played a lot of angels and hit some beautful winners. To summarize the match: Chakvetadze played good, but Lucie was evenbetter. If she continues to play like that, I can see her reaching the quarter- or even the semifinal here. I liked here before, but today she has really won my heart.
