Congrats Lucie. :D

Her first WTA title. :banana:

Lucie was down a break in both the second and third sets, and had 13 Double Faults. :retard:

This is certainly a shocking result. I never could have imagined Safarova winning this title. I had barely even heard of her.

Good tournament by Safarova. She fought more than anyone in this tournament and in the end that was the difference. I hope this gives Dokic some inspiration to try to fight and win a title from the qualies. I also hope that Na Li will now be even more hungry and win her first title on clay at Rabat next week.

yawn, that was a seriously boring match in front of a huge crowd of, erm, 200. those guys will be cannonfodder for the top 20 players. I only watched it because I'm bewitched by all my new tennischannels and have to see it all.

Some of you are probably wondering who the hell is this Lucie...but we challenger and Junior thread residents have always known that Lucie was gonna come good...keep it up Lucie :DIt's crazy, challenger and tour level are like two different worlds. When a challenger players breaks through we're all like, "Who the hell is that?" And you challenger fanatics have known them all along :D
