So, lets hope for some kindness with the draw, and hopefully Lucie can have another strong run that will actually result in ranking improvement :yeah:

Round 1 vs Patty Schnyder

Taniaaa
Aug 27th, 2009, 06:51 PM
OMG:sobbing:

when is she going to have luck with the draws?:tears: well I don't like it at all but I'd say she can beat Patty:)

come on lu:D

Davodus
Aug 27th, 2009, 06:56 PM
Her draw isn't too bad if she can beat Patty. She lost to Patty in Miami this year in a match she should have won easily, and beat her in 2006 on the Gold Coast. Lets hope the 'I don't give a damn' Patty turns up.

Are you freaking crazy?! Lucies draw is EXCELLENT for her ranking. Patty, Errani, and Razzano. She can easily make the 4th round. Mark my words...


But Elena!! : (

GREAT draw for Lucie. Schnyder should be easy if she doesn't bring her best form. I'm very happy with this draw. I just hope she plays well.

Davodus
Aug 28th, 2009, 02:48 AM
I am too, but if Schnyder decides to actually show up and play I will be annoyed :lol: That said, even if she does, Lucie can beat her easy

Taniaaa
Aug 28th, 2009, 02:46 PM
I am not really happy with her draw:lol: I'm not sure about Patty:shrug:

Battle of the lefties, go Lucie :)

Davodus
Aug 28th, 2009, 03:09 PM
I am not really happy with her draw:lol: I'm not sure about Patty:shrug:

Just because she is against Lucie, she will bring her best form :o lol

She has lost to some real scrubs playing bad tennis this year, but you never know which Patty will show up

Taniaaa
Aug 28th, 2009, 03:17 PM
Just because she is against Lucie, she will bring her best form :o lol

She has lost to some real scrubs playing bad tennis this year, but you never know which Patty will show up

That's why I'm worried:tears:

Davodus
Aug 28th, 2009, 04:06 PM
Don't worry yet, worry during the match :p :lol:

If she can beat Patty, she has an excellent shot at the 4th round...

Taniaaa
Aug 28th, 2009, 05:05 PM
I'll try to:lol:

lauraa00
Aug 28th, 2009, 06:54 PM
In my opinion she has a good draw. So I'm confident or i try to be, because with lucie we never know what to expect so I cross my fingers :)
Good luck Lucie

HowardH
Aug 30th, 2009, 07:58 PM
Patty is very beatable nowadays. And the surface is fast. Lucie is probably the favourite :drool:.

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 03:14 AM
Lucie is first up on court 4 :)

Good luck :yeah:

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 08:00 AM
I like Patty, but I really want Lucie to win this match.

Patty is my boyfriend's fave WTA player, so we must be civil:)

Just think of what a win over Patty did for Lucie at Gold Coast so long ago. I think she could get a special momentum from beating a fellow lefty.

Go Lucie!

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 09:04 AM
^^I was there for that match ;) after it, I started to follow Lucie, and here we are now :lol:

Taniaaa
Sep 1st, 2009, 01:31 PM
No stream for Lucie:(

good luck:hearts:

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 03:56 PM
She is about to start :scared:

Taniaaa

Cross the fingers. Can I join you in the club of nervous people?

Davodus

broken already :rolleyes:

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:13 PM
she is down 3-0 so fast

typical start for her

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:14 PM
Bad start. :unsure:

I hope she gets her game going.

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:17 PM
at least she held

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:19 PM
Phew, Lucie finally wins a game.

Now she needs to start making inroads on Patty's serve. Patty is holding way too easily.

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:20 PM
Patty is hardly missing a first serve at this stage :shrug:

edit: she broke back :yeah:

lauraa00
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:26 PM
And she came back :)

lauraa00
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:26 PM
Goooo Lulu!

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:28 PM
she needed to try and keep momentum there, but she didn't

she really needs to fix her return

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:36 PM
BP missed :(
EDIT: 2 :o

EDIT 2: Breaks :D

lauraa00
Sep 1st, 2009, 04:39 PM

Davodus

Sally Todd

Yes! High fives to everyone here. :D

Keep it up Lucka!

I would like to see her outfits. Hope she is not wearing what bartoli was wearing yesterday

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:00 PM
2-0 :(

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:01 PM
:yeah:

That's cool you saw that Gold Coast match. :) That was the result that made me take notice of Lucie. But I didn't get to se her play until I saw her beat Pennetta in the final on TV.

Ugh, this is a tight, topsy-turvy match.

Damn, now Lucie's down a break. And she had break points against Patty. Time to regroup.

lauraa00
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:01 PM

Sep 1st, 2009, 05:03 PM

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:04 PM
Yes! She broke back quickly. :D That is encouraging.

If Lucie focuses on holding her serve she can take this match.

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:06 PM
Lucka is on a roll again. :D

Davodus

Yeah it was great, I was also there for her win against Mauresmo in Melbourne :worship: and her great match against Stosur in Brisbane this year

I thought I was good luck until I saw her match with Bartoli in Melbourne this year :o

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:09 PM
Easy hold at love for Patty after Lucie had won 8 of 9 points.

Davodus

You are good luck. Bartoli is just bad luck. :armed:

That Mauresmo win was thrilling (what I could see of it).

Cmon Lucka, :fiery: She suddenly seems on walkabout...

Exactly david, I totally agree with you!

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:26 PM
Shoot.

Patty has the momentum and more points won. Lucka needs to get it together and start this set better than the last two.

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:30 PM
Yes. 1-0.

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:30 PM
good hold to start the 3rd, but she needs to improve her serve %

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:32 PM
Patty has her serve working, all first serves and an ace when Lucie has a sniff at 15-30

lauraa00
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:32 PM
Her boyfriend is going to play in a few minutes, hopefully it will bring her some luck like in AO 2007 :)

Sally Todd

You're right David, Patty is serving much better than Lucie.

I guess she's suddenly hellbent on defending her quarterfinal points from last year?

So annoying.

Sally Todd
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:42 PM
3-1 Patty. This is terrible.

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 05:43 PM
this is going to be almost exactly the same as the last time they played

and how come schynder can play really shocking against some people, but not against lucie?

Taniaaa

lauraa00

Tomas is probably distracted by score reports right now, He shouldn't have any trouble with Odesnik.

A hug to all you guys. Knowing there are other fans makes it a little easier to shrug off the loss.

What a way to start a day though.

Davodus
Sep 1st, 2009, 06:31 PM
Lucie serving first probably would have won if this wasn't a tiebreak

but no excuses, she SHOULD have won anyway!

Late at night -- that's rough. Try and get some rest. It's not worth losing sleep. What can any of us do but root for her, I suppose.

Lucie has to work on her clutch play. (I know, a real news flash :lol:.) We know she's not horrendous -- she sometimes squeaks out some tough wins. But she's had some major -- in both senses -- chokes this year for sure.

The one plus that I'll take from this match is that she rallied when she seemed out of it in the third. For a year or two she seemed to have less stamina, and if she'd go down a break in the third, you knew it was over.

I really felt confident about this match, even when she was behind, and especially at 5-2 in the TB.

It's so tough to watch point tracker for a match like this and see a match-up like Dominguez Lino vs. Rodionova on the screen. Can Lucie catch a break once?

But I shouldn't complain, she's going to have to earn the breakthrough. The majors have been very disappointing, but this year has been better overall.

I really cannot believe Patty was so trash and lost badly to ERRANI! Lucie would have thrashed that scrub, and of course Patty played a terrible match against her :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

And now, the top half of the draw is so open, who knows what could have happened :rolleyes:

Davodus
Sep 6th, 2009, 05:58 AM
Looking at that part of the draw, it is wide open now. If Lucie could have just beaten Schnyder, she could have made it all the way to the semi's :o :o
