Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Well, can't complain about the draw. Since it's only Budapest, I doubt Lucie will feel any pressure even though it's a really good opportunity to win the title.

You just never know with Lucie, she's had terrible losses in these kind of events before...Martic here (possible QF opponent), Vögele, Dolonc...Melanie Klaffner to name a few. I think she finds it hard to keep her concentration in the early rounds, but we'll see. I hope she can make the final, if she doesn't add some points soon she wont be seeded at the USO

She needs to do well here....I'd be so happy if she won the title.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I don't know what to say. It must be an injury...Lucie is so lovely, and her sportsmanship is always excellent, so I doubt she tanked.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Something must have been wrong. No way she wins one game against someone ranked that low even on her worst day. Unless she played identically to Niculescu.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Nothing was wrong, she just hit 4 errors per game.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

It's certainly not out of the realms of possibility that Lucie could throw a performance of this quality in but it is confusing though.

Lucie's losses of late really havn't been that bad. Hampton (even though Lucie should have beaten her ) and Halep have had a good level of success in recent months and Knapp was beaten by the eventual champion at Wimbledon...

I know Lucie is unpredictable but that is off the scale, if she wasn't that motivated why did she play in Budapest?

Now I've finally found,

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I have no idea why she was there, it was a disgusting performance. I was mortified.

I coach 6-10 year olds, and they don't make the errors that she made.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

She's already been in Toronto practising for a few days at the Rogers Cup site. I guess since her coach is Canadian now..she needs a good run though, her ranking is about to plummet

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Is it something about that surface, or just luck that she usually does well in Toronto? Im hoping for another good run this year at one her most reliable tournaments.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

On the bright side, after the US Open she will have virtually nothing to defend through the rest of the year, as well as half of next year too.
