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!
