Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I wish there were match highlights! From what I read, both played fabulously throughout the whole match. I find this good form so random. Almost as if after bombing out at another grand slam, she said, "Screw it, nothing else to lose for the year." This momentum into next year could be valuable. At the very least, she has some cushion in her ranking, which is much needed. Next is jankovic, against whom she has a lousy 2-5 record. But Lucie demolished her in Fed Cup last year, so that will give her confidence.

Regardless of what that new coach is doing tactically, I do think he is definitely getting her more pumped up, and I think that's invaluable for her mental state. She looked miserable out there in Toronto, for example.

And thanks for the match report as always, David!

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Lucie lost 7-6 4-6 4-6

But it was a great match vs Jankovic. Lucie has improved so much in last weeks

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

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

She pulled out of Linz, so I guess that sickness and all the matches over the last few weeks got the better of her. I think it's a good choice, hopefully she'll get into Sofia so she could use the rest this week. If not she'll finish her season in Luxembourg.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

That's a bummer. She always plays Linz and she is great at indoor play. Well Moscow is indoors and if she qualifies for Sofia that is indoors as well.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Sad to hear that she withdrew from Linz...I hope we can see her in Sofia.

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

So I just saw on her facebook page that she is playing Luxembourg next week instead of Moscow. That's strange, she usually always plays Moscow, but Luxembourg is also indoors with a lesser field so she has a good chance. She also said this would be her last tournament of the year, and I commented on her post asking her if she would play the Tournament of Champions if she qualifies. I doubt she will answer though. lol

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

When she entered Luxembourg she was ranked almost out of the top 50 lol, so she really would have been foolish to enter Moscow...but yeah I dunno what her plans are with Sofia, I hope if she gets in she'd play but who knows.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I'm pretty sure if you qualify then you have to play or she'll get a 0 on her ranking.

Finish strong! I thnk Sofia would be a great opportunity. I hope it happens for her. Especially since she doesn't have to deal with Fed Cup.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Weird match, super high quality first set, then a massive dip in the second before it picked up again...Peng is a tough player and it was a tough match, she was just mentally better when it mattered
