tennis is mostly about match ups and surface though, not previous performances against certain players

Both are my faves, but I like Šafářová more -- so I hope she beats Hradecká.

Anyway, I hate it when my faves face each other so early in a tournament. :(

Well,these Hradecka's results on grass dont sound very optimistic for her fans

Czech Rep is so unlucky at Wimbledon. I think there is 2 all-Czech matches in first round plus possible R2: Zakopalova v Safarova/Hradecka

Safarova :)

By the way Lucie seems to be a common firstname in Czech Republic, is it ?

Yeah. And Petra, Andrea, Klára, Barbora, Kateřina, Zuzana, Martina and Tereza are common first names as well; just check the first names of the Czech players on the WTA ranking:

Hradecka is even more of a head case than Lucie so Safarova in 2

This is Sharapova's section. Safarova is very capable if Copenhagen helped her confidence, but she lost round 1 the last 3 years
