The match against Parmentier wasn't really a surprise considering where their careers where at, at that point. Lucie was just starting out on the circuit and was only ranked 237 at the time. I'd say she did well to reach the final at as qualifier. On the other hand Parmentier was ranked 53 and was the number 4 seed.

Obviously if Lucie and Pauline played now one would expect Lucie to win comfortably but three years is a long time in tennis and in 2008, Parmentier was the better player by a good margin.

i know but it's so strange see a player like Parmentier who barely win some matches on WTA level have 2 titles :confused:

I actually got surprised that she had 1 WTA title, then I checked her wikipedia article

She had absolutely no energy in that final. All of her matches before the final were 3 setters, and her semi against Petkovic was like 3+ hours I believe. Not to say Dushevina wouldn't have won anyway, she was playing some amazing tennis, but you could just tell from the very first points that Hradecka didn't have the energy to play.

As long as Lucie seizes the initiative early in the rallies, she will do just fine. :D However, if she lets Roberta extend the rallies and make use of that backhand slice, things might get complicated in a hurry. :unsure: Something tells me that Lucie will be intent on doing the former tomorrow. :armed:

Yes. She also played the doubles ( and won it with Renata Voracova against Görges and Schnyder ) and had no energy to move her feet.
