And I feel sad for Lucie, but I'm sure she'll rebound from this rough patch of form.

This is the difference between one player coming off a series of ITF wins and another who has barely won a match all year playing a strict WTA tour diet. Maybe Lucie should play a few ITFs as well!!

Jul 9th, 2008, 12:10 PM
Great job :yeah:

20/20 points won on 1st serve :eek:

And only 1 break for Lucie ;)
But only 50% 1st serves in, that´s the only thing that was not so good today ;)

If ALG can maintain this form, hers will have been the most impressive comeback of the year. Good for her.

He meant to say, wouldn't it be strange for ALG to play with Shaughnessy again, considering she's married to the man who ruined Anna's career.

I expected this considering their recent form over the last few weeks, but I certainly didn't expect it to be so easy for Anna-Lena. :D

Anyway, this is now the 17th straight win for Anna-Lena, ranging from $75k, $10k, $25k and now to a Tier III. Next match will be very tough, but it's good to see her competing back at WTA events. :yeah:

Congrats on a very impressive win ALG:bounce:. She really is going to climb back into the top 100 very quickly if she continues to have results like this:).

Good luck in the next round, but Cornet will be very tough to beat!!

100% points won on 1st serve for ALG.

Can we now crown Safarova as the Official and Proud Owner of the Top 100's Very Worst Return Game? Vaidisova as bridesmaid.

Groenefeld and Sprem into the QF who would have thought? :inlove:

To be honest the field is pretty weak. But yes i didn't expect both of them to make it into QF even with the weak field.
good for them.
Cornet is going to be a tough cookie for ALG. She will return all of ALG serves back. but still good luck to her.

Wow from near potential obscurity to a 17 match winning streak and back in a WTA quarterfinal. It's wonderful to see considering how great a young woman Anna-Lena is.

Has she gotten back into shape or is that still a work in progress?

It's been a long time coming, but if that stat is correct, she's officially won the honor.

Seriously, some new Frownies need to be invented for the way Lucie is playing this year.

Coming up with bright sides for "Lucie's Losses" keeps getting trickier. This time: maybe she can take inspiration from the fact that the player who just demolished her was in the absolute pits last year? :unsure:
