Talking Lucie earns her Stars and Stripes in hopes of glory: US Open 2010!

The title might be cliche, but lets hope Lucie can aspire to win a few rounds here Just to confirm the draw (thanks David!) Lucie faces a qualifier first round, would await the winner of Keothavong and Chan 2nd round, and seeded to meet top seed Wozniacki 3rd round Come on Lucie!

Now I've finally found,

Re: Lucie earns her Stars and Stripes in hopes of glory: US Open 2010!

You opened the thread twice I didn't know which to post in!

But yes it's probably her best slam draw at least for the first 2 rounds this year...but knowing her I just hope the qualifier she gets is not a good one, and I think she could beat Keothavong or Chan in round 2 if she won her first round.

Well if she wins a match I will be happy since she is 0 for 3 this year.

Re: Lucie earns her Stars and Stripes in hopes of glory: US Open 2010!

She won a match at RG But since RG 09 she has not performed well in the slams really, but she has always had a pretty good lead up. So maybe this time since she has had a bad lead up she will have a good slam If she can beat the qualifier I think she should make R3, which would be great. But she has to do it first...interested to see which qualifier she gets.

Btw I like the title

Also, I like the title too. Hopefully it will work out well.

I dunno what 2nd round you are talking about, RG ended after the first round and Lucie never played a 2nd round *neverwannathinkaboutthatmatchagain*

Seriously, I actually don't know what match you are talking about. I'm not even lying . I might have suppressed something in my memory.

Re: Lucie earns her Stars and Stripes in hopes of glory: US Open 2010!

Good idea I'm gonna go back to suppressing it now Back to focussing on the USO

So...who thinks Lucie can live up to her seeding and make round 3?

Not me. Lucie is not in great form right now. But you just can never tell with Lucie. The more matches she gets under her belt the more dangerous she is so who knows...

Re: Lucie earns her Stars and Stripes in hopes of glory: US Open 2010!

If she was in good form, with this draw I'd be sure she'd make round 3. But it's up in the air, we dunno how she is playing especially because we havent seen one of her matches this USO series...She still could, I mean if she can get a relatively easy qualifier and wins, I don't see any reason why she'd lose to Keothavong or Chan.

Btw, saw that Mirza qualified, that would not be a good draw

Re: Lucie earns her Stars and Stripes in hopes of glory: US Open 2010!

The qualifier Lucie got is Tamira Paszek I know she's been slumping and Lucie thrashed her earlier this year in Paris...but she qualified so she must be doing okay this week...and she's capable of playing really good tennis. Not the best draw, at all...definitely a match she should win but could easily lose.

Re: Lucie earns her Stars and Stripes in hopes of glory: US Open 2010!

Havent posted in the past few months, just dropping in to say good luck to Miss Safarova. Anything less than a 3rd round would be very disappointing. Regardless, I will be here during her matches whether she's winning or losing.

Re: Lucie earns her Stars and Stripes in hopes of glory: US Open 2010!

I can see Paszek being a potentially tricky opponent but when was the last time she had a decent victory? I dont want to jinx the thread by predicting but agree that not making the 3rd round would be pretty gutting. Especially considering she wont be playing a top 75 player. Though Lucie defies logic so... I hope Lucie isnt entered for doubles this time
