Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Glad to see she won in the end...especially after the scoreboard malfunction saying she lost the set 6-4 then not working for the rest of the set

I have a bad feeling she'll lose to Puig though

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

So she won 6-7 6-4 6-2...it was tough and really close, she won 8 of 9 games from 2-3 to 6-4 4-0...but I recommend reading the livescores thread, i kept an up to date running of the games if you wanna see how things went, the chances she missed, when she had to fight back etc...also good to note she had 11 aces today.

Bad to note is this

That bloody thigh injury!

Edit:
Found this too, so it was during the match

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Won 6-0 7-5...As I said in the livescores thread she was 6-0 3-0 up and let it get to 3-3, but managed to hold onto her serve until she won 7-5 on her 2nd MP.

Into the final though which is nice, she should save herself a seeding for RG now

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Hopefully this will be a boost to her confidence. More importantly though, hope she's not exacerbating that thigh injury...

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Nice to see she won after that awful first set...she always should've won easily. Also nice that she defended her title, came here and won again with much less form than last year....and the 140 points on her ranking is a nice bonus

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Congrats on this title. It's a little tournament, but it's played before the Czech crowd, which makes it that special.

Also some nice guests during this event, including Nick Bolletieri and Hana Mandlikova.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Anything less than the title would have been embarrassing given the level of opponents, but even so good job on the title defence by Lucie.

The match against Puig seemed a crazy mess but thereafter some periods of dominance, 6-0 3-0 over Cepelova and 6-1 in sets 2 and 3 against Cadantu. Trouble is there's still lots of mental demons and wanting to choke but at least she'll go in to Roland Garros on a win, whether it'll help or not...

Now I've finally found,
All my friends are in the clouds
