Cool the championships: wimbledon...lucie's gonna rock it out in white!

let's go lucie.

she's the #25 seed, meaning she'll draw either

(1) henin
(2) sharapova
(3) jankovic
(4) mauresmo
(5) kuznetsova
(6) ivanovic
(7) s. williams
(8) chakvetadze

in the third round. i'm hoping for kuznetsova.

Re: the championships: wimbledon...lucie's gonna rock it out in white!

Jelena Jankovic SRB [3] vs. Anne Keothavong GBR [WC]
Meghann Shaughnessy USA vs. Jarmila Gajdosova SVK
Gisela Dulko ARG vs. Eleni Daniilidou GRE
Lucie Safarova CZE [25] vs. Zuzana Ondraskova CZE

Will be tough, but nothing else could have been expected. Daniilidou in 2nd round is somewhat scary. GL Lucka.

I kind of like this draw. I believe Lucie can reach at least QF if she plays well. Jankovic will be a test, but she is one of the two players I hoped for given the choices. (Ivanovic was the other).

Lucie Šafářová, Petra Kvitová, Lucie Hradecká

Re: the championships: wimbledon...lucie's gonna rock it out in white!

i like this.

ondraskova should be easy.
daniilidou will be tough, but lucie is a better player than her.
and then jankovic. she's caused big upsets in grand slams this year...why not again?

Jankovic likely 3rd round.

Cmon Lucie!

Lucie wins 7-5 6-2. She gave me a little scare in the first set at 5-5 but managed to win it, then she was cruising. Looks like she will need to play a little bit better against Daniilidou (whom I can't see losing to Dulko) and avoid any kind of slow start.

Good solid start. 6 more.

Daniilidou will be shaking with fear no doubt.

Solid win for Lucie. Glad she didn't get injured, it looked very slippery out there...

good start.

daniilidou (or dulko) will be tough, but i think she can do it.

So it's Daniilidou afterall. Should be an interesting match. Good luck Lucie.

i'm confident for this matchup.

she's 2nd on court 6, so she'll be on wimbledon live.
