The NY '11 Cheering-R3 v Niculescu







Its a little bit early but Lucie wont play any events before US Open so i decided to make a thread.
Lucie is going to play probably some of her most important touraments in her career.She is going to be seed 28.This means she will play unseeded players in R1 and R2 and then one of the TOP 8 Seeds.Last yaer she was quite unlucky and faced dangerous Tamira Paszek in opening round and lost in 3 sets.This week she is ranked #28 and I believe if she can reach R3 she will be close to,if not better,than her career Highest rank.There are some dangerous unseeded players and I would like her to avoid them like:

Alona Bondarenko
Gisela Dulko
Petra Martic
Venus Williams
Johanna Larsson
Sara Errani

The best possible draw would be some of these players

Davis [WC]
Parmantier
Pous Tio
Rodina
...


She will also play doubles with Misa Krajicek here.So Good Luck

Re: Lucie ready to eat Big Apple!

The draw is being done, I'm pretty sure Lucie vs Kvitova would be the 3rd round if both make it, haven't seen her first round yet.

Re: Lucie ready to eat Big Apple!

Ok, first round vs Rybarikova, 2nd vs Craybas or Madison Keys...so both winnable matches for sure. Rybarikova has a good serve and aggressive game, but she hasn't played since wimbledon when she got injured in the first round, so she'll be rusty.

Re: Lucie ready to eat Big Apple!

Lucie should do at least R3, and even better I hope

Re: Lucie ready to eat Big Apple!

Kvitova's level of tennis was quite embarassing for a pro player after she won Wimbledon

Re: Lucie ready to eat Big Apple!

This is a very solid draw. If she plays like she has the past couple weeks she should definitely make the third round. And I could see her beating Kvitova too if she is in good form. Lucie doesn't give her opponents a lot of rhythm and if Kvitova is off Lucie can definitely get the scalp. But we'll see... Lucie at majors tends to be disastrous.

Yes but her backhand is literally crap and being lefty Lucie forehand will pounce that backhand to death.

Lucie ''Lucka'' Safarova, Petra ''KvittyGoat'' Kvitova, Sabine ''BoomBoom Bine'' Lisicki

Re: US Open 2011-R1 v M Rybarykova

That's true, her backhand is one of the worst on tour And she should be quite rusty, so hopefully a good matchup for Lucie.

Re: US Open 2011-R1 v M Rybarykova

Don't get too excited, she's had great draws and great preparation before and crashed out in round 1 and 2
