Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Well done, Lucie. Head To Head vs Stosur now 8-2 !

And 4-0 this year. Kanepi next, a very talented player. Good luck

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

It doesn't but it just means no top player in the first couple of rounds...and since I go to AO it would really be good for me if she could get seeded so I don't have to worry about her getting Serena R1 and being on a ticketed court

With that win she's up to 32 in the rankings if no one below her has a good week and passes her. The good thing for her seeding chances are that next year she defends nothing in the first week, whereas a few people around her like Pavs, Kookie, Barthel are defending finals or SFs. So she defs has a good shot of being seeded

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Updated scores in the livescores thread for anyone who wants to see how it went, but I'll give a lowdown now...

The first 6 games of the match she was really flat and not playing great, but she held tough...saved 6 BPs in those games, then she got solid and started to flow better and opened up to win that set 6-3.

2nd set she went up an early break but lost serve right back, but then quickly got herself back together which was good. The main reason she won was because she was willing to be much tougher than Kanepi...she fought hard every point to get as many shots back as she could and she won a lot of those points. Not often a strong defence wins her a match but it did today for sure. It shows the turnaround in her mentality that she can do that again now, even a month ago we would not have seen this from her at all. Another 140 points to the ranking also doesn't hurt

Lucie! At least one of my faves did well today. I hope I'll be able to watch her play at least once this week.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Amazing what she has accomplished mentally in a month. These are matches she just wasn't winning earlier. The good form is so refreshing to see. Kuznetsova or Petkovic next, so tough match either way. (3-3 H2H against Sveta, 1-3 against Petkovic with Petko winning their last three in close two-set matches).

She has lost twice to Petkovic in Beijing as well

It really is great that she's had this turn around mentally...it's saved her ranking because she'll be in seeding range at this stage for AO after this event. I was looking at her ranking and from USO on she's so far added 745 points which is close to half of the points she actually has on her ranking, so it gives her a chance to jump up even more in the rankings next year in the first half of the year with a couple of good results when she isn't really defending much.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

She won 6-4 6-7 7-6 my nerves are shot...

She wasted SO many chances, like 6-4 *2-1 40-0 and got broken then went down 2-4 and came back to 4-4, before losing the TB from 4-3 up...

Then went down a break *1-0 in the 3rd, broke right back from 40-15 down. Had 3 MPs at 5-4* with 15-40 and AD, then missed a sitter smash at deuce...but rebounded for 2 good service holds and a super solid TB amazing fight and her mentality has just completely turned around!

She was still tight on mps, passive play and only spun her serve in the box, but other than that, she really held her nerve in her service game

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Im shocked because I would say this is almost the best few weeks of her entire career...she has had a lot of great weeks, and the Rome/Madrid of 2010 run was good...but she's hardly ever maintained such results over 3 straight weeks of playing. Going into Quebec ranked 48 I thought she had no chance of being seeded at AO, and now her ranking looks set to move to 28 with nothing left to defend until the AO.

Really amazed by this turnaround...maybe we can lay off her coach now he was pretty into it today, he jumped up and fistpumped when she smacked that BH down the line to bring up her first MP

Lucie into Beijing QF !

Quote:
Safarova is now 11-1 since the US Open, winning her fifth WTA title at Québec City (5-0), reaching the quarterfinals of Tokyo before falling to Caroline Wozniacki (3-1) and now the quarters here (3-0).
Winning MM Quebec City title really changed Lucie completely
