Re: Wishing for a successful Wimbledon 2014

Another slam break through... really well played by Lucie.

Great response to immeadiately break back and serve out the second time. Great net/serving stats too; she actually listened!

4R... surely not?

Re: Wishing for a successful Wimbledon 2014

I wish Cibulkova lost, Van Uytvanck served for the match The head to head with Cibulkova isn't great because the match up doesn't work so well for Lucie. But hopefully she can have a good day, nothing to lose!

Re: Wishing for a successful Wimbledon 2014

Lucie into Wimbledon R3 !

Very efficient and mentally strong from Lucie. 7-6 7-6 in R1 and 7-6 7-5 in R2

The draw is wide open. Please upset #10 seed Cibulkova and reach Wimbledon R4

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: Wishing for a successful Wimbledon 2014

Lucie is last up on Court 3 after Wozniacki and Tsonga. Given the weather forecast, it could be a long day.

Hope she plays well. Lucie is 0-3 against Cibulkova and has never won a set (including at Wimbledon in 2010), but they haven't played in three years. She should play more freely than she did against Hercog, since she doesn't have any pressure on her shoulders.

Re: Wishing for a successful Wimbledon 2014

*4-3 up, since she broke she's won 1 point on return She's playing too centrally during the extended rallies.

Re: Wishing for a successful Wimbledon 2014

Tries her best to choke, goes down 30-40 from 30-0, but holds in the end and wins the set on her 6th SP
