Happy she got the win against Davis because she has basically defended all her points for the rest of the year now probably made the 2nd set more difficult than needed but 3rd straight set win in a row isn't bad
SF is gonna be much tougher, looking at this stage like it'll be against Bouchard so that will be tough, but she has already done well so really there isn't that much to lose or that much pressure
Yeah this week has been great in terms of confidence and points, she's back into the top 40 after being almost out of the top 50 so that's nice. Erakovic in the final will be tough, she has a big game and she really enjoys fast indoor surfaces...the positive is that Lucie always loses to McHale and she has the ability to pressure Erakovic's BH which is definitely her weaker shot.
Their only previous meeting was 6-1 3-6 9-7 to Lucie at the AO 2009 so really doesn't mean much, but Lucie and Pavs did beat her in the Madrid final so she has at least played her recently. I really want that title but I'm worried her mentality will get in the way again
It's really important she wins this title. It would do wonders for her year. Moreover, it's a tournament she should win. She is a better player than Erakovic. Regardless, this week has been good for her confidence. But still, the end of her title drought would be great.
