She'll be too tired to play Serena. :) I was hoping they would play a bit longer but... it did the job.

Lucie, you need to take a break and look at your game, and figure out why it's so inconsistent. Because she really handed Marion this match in many ways. I wouldn't be surprised if she got about 10% of service returns in in the 3rd set.

Marion did a great job of playing error-free tennis and letting Lucie make mistakes. She's smart enough to know when to be aggressive and when to keep it in play. French #1!

WAY tomany needless UE's from Lucie. Could have won it easily if she just had a bit more margin for error. Her return was just woeful on the big points aswell and her defense needs work, i mean Bartoli actually moves better than her :shrug: She's talented but still to raw to be considered a top 10 contender yet.

OH LUCIE...

Yes, that's Lucie with an 'ie', not a 'y.'

For Lucie fans, sounds like more of the same. Agreed that she needs to step back for a while and work on her weak points. And overall, she needs to find a style of or approach to play that matches her temperament better. She has killer shots but not killer instinct.

I was hoping Lucie would serve out wide to wide Marion's two-handed shots. Who knows if she did. If those return stats are true, ugh. She should have been teeing off effectively on Marion's sloooow second serves instead of sending 'em sailing. You can bet Serena will be looking to kill the Bartoli serve -- if she gets the chance to...

Thus far, Lucie wears down against the consistent top players like Jankovic and now Bartoli. Gotta hand it to Bartoli, she's crafty and steady.

46 ues from Lucie is unacceptable. Had she kept the errors down it was her match to win.

I changed my mind. I'd rather see her bagelled by Serena than losing to Lucie in 3 sets. Bagels are always much more fun.

No worries. :) I wouldn't have cared if I wasn't feeling the sting :fiery: of the loss.

On the bright side, the nicknames for Marion and rhymes about her on this thread are hilarious. :worship: Maid Marion the Marinator makes marionettes of her opponents in tight matches.

Lucie fandom requres patience! Her time will come I hope.

Looking at the stats, Lucie's actually weren't that bad. Yeah she had 32 unforced errors -- no more than the players in Zvonareva-Williams -- but she also had 46 winners. In fact, she dictated play and had a better percentage of winners to unforced errors than Marion.

That means it's a lot about the mental game for Lucie. Marion is a true competitor, the kind you have to stay strong and think against.
