Perfect draw to reach final. But with Lucie I expect the worst

That's amazing although I'd like to think she can go higher as it proved a jinx in her singles ranking as she's gone only down since.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

So I noticed even with Lucie's win today she still gets no points added to her ranking. Is her best of 16 really 70 points? I find that real hard to believe since I cant even name a dozen tournaments that she's performed well in since last June. :/

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I dunno I thought it was 60 points tbh but I'm not sure.

Anyway Hercog next...those of us who remember RG 2010 will never feel at ease with this match up despite the Charleston SF double bagel But Hercog has been out injured and played 5 sets today, so Lucie will defs be the favourite. And she's the highest seed left in the bottom half

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Lucie should be the favorite but I think Hercog is coming in with a great clay streak on the ITF circuit. But still Lucie should win. Halep should be her first major challenge.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

That's more like it from Lucie.

Lucie's had two wins against Hercog since the unforgivable RG match, so hope that trend continues.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Lucie reached Nürnberg SF !

She beat Hercog 7-6 3-6 6-4. Her first WTA SF this year

Halep next. Tough opponent. Viel Glück

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I literally have no idea how Lucie won the match. I watched some of it, return was soooo bad.

I left at 0-30 first game final set and was sure she'd blown it, can't believe there was multiple breaks. Happy she pulled off a tight match but Halep's going to be tough.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Yeah playing like that she won't beat Halep tbh, she needs to return better...I'm just happy she finally is picking up some points

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Well, a good week by Lucie. After she won her first round, I meant to come around and post but forgot. Then she won her next and I didn't want to jinx anything so I didn't post here. It didn't work though! Normally I would have frowned on her decision to play on clay this week, but grass is a lost cause for her. Hopefully this gave her a bit of confidence and some much-needed points.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

The points are the most important because 120 are coming off in Eastbourne next week so she defended that. She probably should've won against Halep given the bagel second set but she went flat and fizzled out which was disappointing...but first WTA SF of the year is important.

She's playing Budapest I think after Wimbledon so hopefully she'll have a good run there
