Well, Lucie leads Arevane 2-1. She broke Arevane's service. First game Arevane won at love. Second game Lucie had a couple good serves and returns. Then in the third game she broke Arevane at 40-15, I think it was.
Lucie looks very focused, while Arevane slightly scattered. But it is early as yet.

Of course, Lucie gives the break back. :eyeroll:
So, now 2-2, Arevane to serve now.

Oh, goodness, going to be one of those matches. Now Arevane has been broken again. Broken on her own double fault. She looks quite pissed at herself. So...3-2, Lucie to serve and leads. Will she hold serve?

Lucie is broken. Ending on a double fault.:eek:
Someone needs to hold serve.
3-3 Arevane serving.
The commentator loves Arevane just as he loved Dulko in the first match, and her balletic movement. :D

Love game for Arevane, leading now 4-3 (on serve, though). Lucie, too many errors.
Jul 9th, 2010, 12:24 PM
Lucie fails to hold serve, allowing Arevane to go up 5-3, and now Arevane is serving for the set.
Jul 9th, 2010, 12:25 PM
There it is. Arevane wins the set. Pretty quick set.

Arevane leads 6-3, 3-0.

Lucie gets one break back. Sometimes Arevane rushes things. She probably could have held that, but..
6-3, 3-1 Arevane
Safarova serving now at 30-0.

Jul 9th, 2010, 12:48 PM
3-2 Lucie holds on, so...not over yet.
Arevane serving at 15-0

Lucie holds, but trails: 3-6, 3-4.

MP for Arevane on Lucie's serve.

Arevane wins 6-3, 6-3. Don't agree with the commentator that she looked very comfortable all the way. There was quite a spate of exchanges of service. Still Arevane did play better, returned better and made fewer errors.
