Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

When Lucie is the underdog that means she will surprise us, she always play better when she is not the seeded player.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

Let´s see how well will Lucie cope with Goerges´ strategic moonballs to her backhand.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

I am excited for her next match! She may really struggle on her returns though.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

Well she always struggles on return I'm shocked she was able to break that many times against Flipkens. If Lucie plays well, there is no reason she can't beat Görges...her FH CC will match up well into Görges's backhand...

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

Lucie and Misa play their doubles 3rd on court 8 tomorrow against Hantuchova/Radwanska. It's good for Lucie to play doubles even if she loses, because otherwise she would've had 2 days off matches which might've been too much.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

Lucie up first on court 2 tomorrow she is quite a slow starter early...and Tomas lost on that court so hopefully she can overcome those things. However, she and Misa just beat Hantuchova/Radwanska 6-7 6-3 6-2 Lucie lost serve in her first service game, then held every other time including serving for the match. That's a pretty good result.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

What a mess of a first set. Lucie isn't playing much better, just slightly more contained and doing a good job of going to Goerges' BH for UE'S.
Well she has a set and break but really needs to start playing a lot better that last game was awful.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

The positive so far is she seems very determined. But she needs to keep pressure on and holding her serve. Its been scrappy, but she's been better so she needs to keep being better.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

Yes you're right if she can keep her nose in front but she's pushing her luck, good hold. I guess there's also the thing that when youre opponent isn't playing well it can drag you're own level down. Especially with not much rhythm. I just want her to get the match over before Goerges finds a good level.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

Lucie lost her break big pressure now. It had been a long time coming, she had been really struggling and just holding.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

At least she's still in the set, but her BH hasn't arrived in the match yet.

Re: Lucie Ready to Rumble at Roland Garros

And she loses the set what a massive chance lost. She has it, but she didnt keep it going and take her chance for a double break, and here we are.
