Re: Lucie at Wimbledon 2008

Not a great draw for Lucie. She faces Loit in the first round. She's played her once before in Miami last year where she won 60 75. It will be tough. If she gets by Loit, she would face seeded Peer. Peer has been struggling a bit so it isn't the worse seeded player she could have drawn. But Peer leads 2-1 in their H2H, with Lucie losing both previous matches in 2007 (her lone win came in 2004 in the quallies). Then, if she can get to the third round (which would be great) she'd face most likely Safina, who she leds 2-1 against. But Safina won their last meeting and Safina has been on a hot streak.

It's a very tricky quarter of the draw. Sharapova, Davenport, Dementieva, Petrova, and Azarenka are all in it. And if she made it to the semis (no offense, but fat chance!) there's Venus and Jankovic that are huge threats.

2007 Result:
3rd Round
Jankovic d. Safarova 57 76(4) 62

Re: Lucie at Wimbledon 2008

Not a bad draw IMO, she could reach the 3rd round. Wouldn't expect her to go any further as she is on track to face Safina in the 3rd round which will be a very tough match given Safin's form. However Lucie is always capable of an upset and on any given day she can beat just about anyone. Given the fact that she is unseeded it's not a bad draw and about the best we could have hoped for.

Re: Lucie at Wimbledon 2008

Yeah, it's hard to think what a great draw would be for Lucie right now. If she got one, it could be wasted.

This one certainly could be much worse, though Safina is looking like she can trample Peer, Lucie, and anyone else nearby.

Re: Lucie at Wimbledon 2008

She could of faced a Venus or Serena or a Sharapova in the first round since she is unseeded, so I guess facing Loit in the first round is a good draw. :-/

Re: Lucie at Wimbledon 2008

Lucie has 67% first serves in. She was down a break 1-4 and faced break points to go down 1-5. But she's fought back and now she's on serve 3-4.

I'm not expecting her to win this with these injuries though. I am just praying she won't pull out.

Re: Lucie at Wimbledon 2008

Lucie lost 63 76(4). 5 aces, 9 double faults, 30 winners, 64% first serve percentage.

Not much to say except at least the injuries will get a rest.

Re: Lucie at Wimbledon 2008

I was about to say I can't believe she lost to Loit at Wimbledon, but then I remembered who I was actually talking about here.
