Re: Berlin

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.

Come on Lucie - show your Fed Cup form.

Good Luck!!

Re: Berlin

Lucie has nothing to defend this week. Last year Lucka played and lost round 1 in Prague.
Lucie only has 167 points to defend for the rest of the year!!!

seriously?

iffy start in berlin. was up a set and 5-4 (serving) before winning 6-3, 6-7, 6-0.

at least it was a strong finish.

2r vs. either chakvetadze/stosur. winnable.

Re: Berlin

The girl fuckin rocks. Go Lucie, tak down another russian now.
Only 52% of first serve, but won 86% from it. Faced only breakpoint in the whole match (10 service games). Even though she lost it

Re: Berlin

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.
