The title might be cliche, but lets hope Lucie can aspire to win a few rounds here :rocker2: Just to confirm the draw (thanks David!) Lucie faces a qualifier first round, would await the winner of Keothavong and Chan 2nd round, and seeded to meet top seed Wozniacki 3rd round :o Come on Lucie! :)

Davodus
Aug 27th, 2010, 01:51 AM
You opened the thread twice :p I didn't know which to post in! :lol:

But yes it's probably her best slam draw at least for the first 2 rounds this year...but knowing her :o :lol: I just hope the qualifier she gets is not a good one, and I think she could beat Keothavong or Chan in round 2 if she won her first round.

Aug 27th, 2010, 03:03 AM
Well if she wins a match I will be happy since she is 0 for 3 this year.

Davodus
Aug 27th, 2010, 04:49 AM
She won a match at RG :p But since RG 09 she has not performed well in the slams really, but she has always had a pretty good lead up. So maybe this time since she has had a bad lead up she will have a good slam :lol: If she can beat the qualifier I think she should make R3, which would be great. But she has to do it first...interested to see which qualifier she gets.

Btw I like the title :yeah:

Robert-KimClijst
Aug 27th, 2010, 11:52 AM
She won a match at RG :p

Whoops... After that great second round at the French I tried to wipe that slam from my memory.

Also, I like the title too. Hopefully it will work out well.

Davodus
Aug 27th, 2010, 11:57 AM
Whoops... After that great second round at the French I tried to wipe that slam from my memory.


I dunno what 2nd round you are talking about, RG ended after the first round and Lucie never played a 2nd round :p *neverwannathinkaboutthatmatchagain*

Aug 27th, 2010, 02:05 PM
Seriously, I actually don't know what match you are talking about. I'm not even lying :lol:. I might have suppressed something in my memory.

Davodus
Aug 27th, 2010, 03:14 PM
Good idea :p I'm gonna go back to suppressing it now :o Back to focussing on the USO :lol:

So...who thinks Lucie can live up to her seeding and make round 3?

Robert-KimClijst
Aug 27th, 2010, 10:57 PM
Not me. Lucie is not in great form right now. But you just can never tell with Lucie. The more matches she gets under her belt the more dangerous she is so who knows...

Davodus
Aug 28th, 2010, 07:02 AM
If she was in good form, with this draw I'd be sure she'd make round 3. But it's up in the air, we dunno how she is playing especially because we havent seen one of her matches this USO series...She still could, I mean if she can get a relatively easy qualifier and wins, I don't see any reason why she'd lose to Keothavong or Chan.

Btw, saw that Mirza qualified, that would not be a good draw :o

Davodus
Aug 29th, 2010, 01:27 AM
The qualifier Lucie got is Tamira Paszek :o I know she's been slumping and Lucie thrashed her earlier this year in Paris...but she qualified so she must be doing okay this week...and she's capable of playing really good tennis. Not the best draw, at all...definitely a match she should win but could easily lose.

Robert-KimClijst
Aug 29th, 2010, 03:54 PM
Could be worse...

Havent posted in the past few months, just dropping in to say good luck to Miss Safarova. Anything less than a 3rd round would be very disappointing. Regardless, I will be here during her matches whether she's winning or losing. :)

Aug 29th, 2010, 06:45 PM
I can see Paszek being a potentially tricky opponent but when was the last time she had a decent victory? I dont want to jinx the thread by predicting but agree that not making the 3rd round would be pretty gutting. Especially considering she wont be playing a top 75 player. Though Lucie defies logic so... :o I hope Lucie isnt entered for doubles this time :help:

lauraa00
Aug 29th, 2010, 07:10 PM
I hope Lucie isnt entered for doubles this time :help:

She is :lol: She is playing with Sorana Cirstea. I can't remember if they already played together, ?

sCoTt.ChE.
Aug 29th, 2010, 08:20 PM
^ Thanks :). Oh dear :o I dont remember her ever playing doubles with Sorana. She played the last few grand slams with Wozniak didnt she? Lucie obviously enjoys the company of slumping players :lol:

Davodus
Aug 30th, 2010, 12:48 AM
Cirstea...that's weird :lol: But she's a better doubles player than Wozniak...just slightly :lol:

Edinboro
Aug 30th, 2010, 12:55 AM
I guess Lucie must have realized that too and sent that girl packing haha

Davodus
Aug 30th, 2010, 01:34 AM
They have Woehr and Flipkens in round 1, so that's even winnable..but doubtful :p

Lucie practiced on Armstrong with Ivanovic yesterday according to someone on twitter... I wanna see some pictures, to see if her leg is still taped or not.

Please report! :D

Yeah, it could go either way with Paszek. The one good thing is that Paszek didn't build momentum in qualies the way that Lucic did. She won her last match in three sets. But Lucie doesn't exactly have momentum either.

I'm tempted to ignore her trouncing of Paszek earlier this year because Lucie is just a different player at Paris indoors -- I wish she could take those courts with her everywhere.

Sally Todd
Aug 30th, 2010, 03:53 AM
Lucie and Sorana is such a cute doubles team. Very pretty. See them while you can! :lol:

No strapping :)

We're temporarily posting pics of her here? In that case...

It is indeed nice to see her legs without strapping, for both aesthetic and fitness reasons.

Davodus
Aug 30th, 2010, 02:20 PM
She's looking pretty fit, there is some serious muscle definition across her back in all these photos.

I really hope Lucie can just get herself together and play a solid match, because a solid match will win this...it's all she needs.

If memory serves Paszek isn't good against fellow lefties. Lucie should be serving out wide to her and trying to make her move.

Oh whatever, when I am mad my potty mouth takes over. And even in that case I have to watch what I say or I would have probably been banned several times, which is annoying. When a fave of mine loses I just wanna let all my emotions out.

Yeah i can understand and maybe i took too seriously your word, but i just wanted to say that for me this is not the proper word to use, that's it.

Bloody nice choke, Lucie ! If you continue like this : pls follow the steps of Vaidisova and RETIRE to become a full time WAG ! You are trully turning into a big idiot the last weeks/months : defeats on defeats, never tired of this ? Ah she went to pick up some thousands of dollars ! That's it ! That's not what I call pride, Lucka !

Oh Lucie. :( I am sad for her. Hopefully this match will be a wake up call that SLAMS ARE IMPORTANT. She needs to bring her best from the first round because there are only three e year (I am not counting Wimbledon for Lucie since her game on grass is nonexistant).

Hopefully better things to come? This is just me being optimistic.

Jesus Lucie :help: I seriously question my sanity for supporting a player thats so unfuckingreliable. I mean she beat this girl 0 and 3 and was heading for a similar crushing yet lost :o How in Lucie's brain does a set and 4-1 become an unobtainable winning position?! In a grand slam Lucie's brain turns to mush :rolleyes: Please regroup Lucie, the weapons and talent is there, just sort your head out! Oh and remind me to never to open a thread again :o

David, maybe youre a jinx lmao. Things were going well till you arrived haha.

At least we didnt have to share in this loss alone. But damn, it would have been nice to see her play well in a slam for once.

When I got here she went up 4-1 in the 2nd :( She still should have won :o I can't overcome my disappointment for this.

What the heck :o :sobbing:. Tamira has ability but has pretty much been in a horrible slump for ages, so Lucie should have finished the job. She was up a set and 4-1. Unbelievable.

Everyone needs a big :hug:.

And then they lose today. Bad grand slam season for Lucie. This season has been bad for her. The clay season was good but she bombed when it mattered most at the pinnacle of the clay season so ehh.

I think the season has been solid minus the slams, which is the big disappointment. It's all well and good to have good runs to semis and quarters of other events, but you have to back it up at the slams and that's what Lucie has failed to do for about 3 years now. She has made 1 3rd round since 2007 at AO 09, and that's disappointing. Maybe next year can be better, I dunno how she will go at the end of this year and with 200 points coming off next week she will probably drop out of the top 30, so she might not be seeded at AO. But like being seeded has helped her this year :lol:

Also, I never expected them to come close to beating the top seeds in doubles, Lucie is an awful doubles player :lol:

I really cant imagine Lucie in a doubles match, it's kind of scary :lol: Trouble is though in grand slams she loses so early that at least the doubles will extend the experience :o She's won more doubles matches at slams than singles this year hasn't she? :tape: If it wasn't for the fact she probably played at a good top 20 level on clay she would have crashed down. I hope she can salvage something good to end the season on :unsure:
