Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi! -- Lucie at the 2013 Australian Open

Second Quarter of the Draw: Lucie's Section
Nadia Petrova (RUS) [12] vs. Kimiko Date-Krumm (JPN)
Shahar Peer (ISR) vs. Alexandra Panova (RUS)
Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor (ESP) vs. Bojana Jovanovski (SRB)
Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) vs. Lucie Safarova (CZE) [17]

So not a horrific draw... I'd be pleased if she made it to the third round and gave Petrova a tough fight honestly. If she could get out of this section (which would be a monumental victory in and of itself), that'd mean she's probably playing good tennis and would have a shot against Stephens, Kvitova, or Robson I think.

Let's go Lucie! Can't be worse than last year! Hope my thread brings some luck.

Thank You, Kim

It's actually all things considered a pretty good draw...she knows Lucic's game because she played her last year and beat her 6-2 6-0...I agree with you, making R3 and pushing Petrova would be a successful tournament for her imo. Here's hoping anyway.

Mirjana is extremely dangerous when she's playing well, but that only happens on grass now.

I'm hoping she at least makes the R32 anyway.

Like the draw. Hope we get a stream for Lucie vs Mirjana Lucic match

A loss before R3 would be a big disappointment. I really hope Lucie remembers 2007

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

So true

Safarova *2-3

Honestly a player like Lucic shouldn't have even won three games this set.. What is wrong with Lucie this year?
