Re: Lucie at Roland Garros 2008

A very poor draw for Lucie. Once again, she will lose more ranking points. I am praying she can get by Koesl in the first round. It's definitely a match she should win. The question is whether or not she can. However, in her next round she'd face Ivanovic, last year's finalist. I would be fine with this tournament, personally, if Lucie can put up a solid performance against Ivanovic. At least we'll get to see her on TV. But right now I'm just focusing on her first round match.

She's in by far the worst half of the draw. Serena, Venus, Jelena, and Ana are all in that one half.

Don't like this draw at all. Poor girl just can't get a break it seems.

Re: Lucie at Roland Garros 2008

I am waking up really early tomorrow to watch Lucie, hope she won't disappoint me like I did when I woke up early for her match against Kuznetsova in Dubai. Good luck Lucie!

Wow, not going to get too excited though. Will see how she goes against Ivanovic.

Re: Lucie at Roland Garros 2008

What did I say? She always performs on the big stage.

Great performance, well done Lucie! However she now plays Ana, my favourite. Man I hate it when that happens, especially so early in tournaments.

May the best woman win!

Re: Lucie at Roland Garros 2008

I'm very happy with Lucie. She got her first serve percentage up! And really gave her a thrashing.

But 4 winners to 24 unforced errors won't cut it against Ivanovic.

I don't care if Lucie loses against Ivanovic (as that is mostl likely). BUT, I want her to show us some of that form that made her play one of the best matches at Wimbledon last year. Make people in the tennis world start noticing her again. Get some reputation back.

That must be wrong. Nobody would win by this margin with such stats.
To beat Ivanovic, who will pummel to Lucie's weaker backhand side, she needs a miracle. Although I noticed that Ivanovic prefers to hit inside-out forehand than usual crosscourt one.
