It's about time, I thought she was going to really mess this up after wasting her tenth break point in the third set but she finally closed it out. She seemed to be serving quite well, but that's probably a lot more to do with Erakovic's inadequate return game than Safarova throwing down bombs.

Regardless, well done Lucka. :worship: Great start to the season.

This match was epic. The court they were on only has 4 rows and people were piling in and finding anyway way possible to watch it. Some went on to other stands and looked over the top, some were on each others back...some were using kids as an excuse to get through:o. Tennis was so-so but the ending was tense. Heaps of Kiwi's and heaps of Czech fans going nuts.

Neither girl were playing extremely well, Lucie was scared to go for anything at the end of the match and she was pretty much waiting for Marina to hit an error. Finally she hit enough to give Lucie the match, finished with a double fault on match point :o. Sad end to a really fun match.

Had a feeling that would happen, Marina has strong groundstrokes...but much like Sam, if you can rally with her long enough you will often win the point.

I was at the match, from 2-2 in the third set. Lucie did hit some nice winners, but she should have won the match at 7-5 or even 6-4 because she was ahead in each game where Marina was serving to stay in the match.

I was also pretty impressed with the way Marina played and went for her shots when she was down. It was a shame that Marina double faulted MP down.
