Lucie in Forest Hills (?)

First of all, I read on here and on her website that she wasn't playing this tournament??

Lucie is in the draw this week and it is a great tournament for her to be playing TBH. I can actually have expectations this week because 1. she's won this tournament in the past and 2. She had 2 good wins last week. Not only that but she got a very good draw.

1r: Amanmuradova - 19-20 record this year, best on clay, and not in form.
2r: Erakovic - Grass specialist, on a 4 match losing streak and less likely Jackson, who is fresh off of injury.

If she gets to the SF then its likely Benesova and the finals would probably be Dushevina, Parmentier, or Bacsinszky. Not the toughest road to a title. But now I am looking way ahead of myself.

Most importantly, good luck.

Elena Dementieva
Li Na
Lucie Safarova
Petra Kvitova

Good Luck Lucie.

Good to see that she will have a tournament in the US prior to US Open.

Let's not look past round 1.

Re: Lucie in Forest Hills (?)

Lucie vs. Agkul is the last match today.

Based on what's happening so far, we'll probably find out who won a week from next Tuesday.

Lucie won Forrest Hills in 2005, so this could be a very nice tournament for her.

Thank You, Kim

Re: Lucie in Forest Hills (?)

Lucie def. Amanmuradova 6-7(11) 6-3 6-3

Step 1, complete. She has 30 points points now, but 50 points would be nicer. Its almost better that she's winning a few close matches cause thats really whats gonna help her get her confidence back. I'm excited about the rest of the tourney. Onward, Lucie.

Quarterfinals: Jackson - just came back from injury, really unknown how she's gonna play.

Jackson beat Erakovic who is in bad form in 2 tight sets. As usual with Lucie 2008 its a hard match to call but I'm feeling pretty confident. Good luck, Lucie.

Lucie Safarova def. Jamea Jackson 3-6 6-3 6-0

Good job Lucie! I'm almost ready to say she's out of her slump, and I didn't think I would be saying that this year. Now she has 50 points, looking to make it 80 points. Next Up!

SF: Benesova - Pretty good form so Lucie is not the favorite here.

If she wins this match I'm ready to say she's officially out of her slump. Good luck!

Re: Lucie in Forest Hills (?)

Great news to come home too.

I don't think she is out of her slump, nor will I think so if she beats Benesova tomorrow (which I find highly unlikely). Still it has been nice to have back-to-back events where she was won two matches in a row. This is a very promising sign.

She is moving in the right direction if nothing else.

Re: Lucie in Forest Hills (?)

Lucie def. Benesova 6-2 6-4!!

I knew this would be her (re)breakthrough tourney. From what I've read from people who went to Forest Hills she's apparently playing amazing. Now she has 80 points, looking to make it 115.

Finals(!!!): Peng Shuai - Very much in form, but an off and on player.

Shuai is actually in my top ten favorites. I have good feelings about the match though, I think Lucie can do it.

PS - I doubt you guys care but these last two weeks have been amazing for me. Lena winning, Na getting 4th place, Lucie winning 5 matches, it's all too good. I can only dream of what will happen at the USO.

Re: Lucie in Forest Hills (?)

YES YES YES YES YES

I have waited for this result all year and finally it has arrived. I really don't care who wins the final because I love each of them but just a big for Lucie for not giving up and continuing to fight. So nice to see.
