Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Lucie into Charleston QF !

She beat Cirstea 6-3 5-7 6-1 and now plays Serena

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

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Well, one out of two. I was right though about Lucie playing better tennis!! I think this was a very solid tournament given the draw (even with only two match wins, better tennis than we have seen from her all year). A good beginning to her best part of the season.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Yeah definite turnaround in form and just attitude I think, she looked more normal and lively on the court. Earlier in the year it really felt like she couldn't hit winners, but she was much more damaging in these matches here...hopefully it gives her confidence going into red clay.

It is a shame though that she had this tough draw.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Well, she's in the final of the doubles. They beat Barty and Rodionova 1 and 4. Exciting, another doubles final here. This tournament really brings out the best in her it seems (like the Rogers Cup). Hopefully this will get her going for the year!

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Lucie really is a doubles GOAT. Lucie and Kristina are into the doubles final, they beat Barty/Rodionova 6-1 6-4 and no exaggeration she was the best on the court most of the second set, played very well. They were down 4-1 as well, Mladenovic seemed really happy.

It's a real shame she ran into formidable Serena as the type of play she was beginning to show probably would have beaten most other opponents in the draw, but she's had her favourable draws and wasted them. A big leap compared to before the tournament though, hopefully it's not an anomaly this time...

Still, she definitely seems to love Charleston and a chance for a title against Hlavackova/Huber tomorrow.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahaha. It's just hilarious to me that Lucie has only won two doubles titles, and they're at this premiere event. Good for Lucie! Thrilled with this result. She definitely needed some sort of win to turn her year around, and she seems thrilled from her Facebook posts. Good win.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I missed most of it but just got back in time for the last game and tiebreak. Charleston doubles GOAT in the house.

I have no idea how they won their matches in straights as everything pointed to them losing certain sets but they were somehow clutch. Both seemed extremely happy.
