I see, thanks, I thought she looked like an athlete.

Hope Lucie's injury is not too serious and that she'll be ready for Wimby

Yep Edinboro, still here Been in and out since a lot of my fave players were injured and Lucie, well you know, it can be quite enjoyable but frustrating to follow her... so sometimes I need a break

Agreed with your assessment, only thing I would add is that she is WAY less up and down as she was before and that her doubles achievement have made her more of a all-around player.

didn't know about Davodous

You might end up very disappointed. The grammar is extremely difficult comparing to Spanish or English. It will take months just to learn the pronunciation, some basic vocabulary.. and you will be able to use just some memorized phrases.
Even if you are very talented it will take years until you are able to understand the richness and the beauty of our language.

Check the Czech culture instead. Movies, books, classical music. You will get much more information about our culture that way. Read Capek, Hasek, Kundera, Hrabal. Watch movies of Forman, Menzel, Svankmajer, Zeman, Sverak, Zelenka. Listen to Dvorak, Smetana, Janacek, Martinu.

Should be interesting against Angie. I like them both, so I'm just hoping it will be a good match and may the best player win.

Nevermind. Angie is out of Birmingham and took a WC into Eastbourne. Cibulkova takes her place in the draw. My thoughts are that this is winnable if Lucie can keep focused. Might be winnable anyway, as Cibulkova is not playing at all well at the moment.
Hi - It appears you just recently joined.

I am one of the most notorious posters in Lucie's forum - 2nd only to Davodous who just a few months ago announced his "posting retirement" (Although pleased to see that Smarties is still with us )I have followed Lucie on a week in / week out basis since Rogers Cup 2009. I pulled back a bit in the opening months of 2011 because I was devastated over Dementieva's retirement. Since then, Lucie has probably become my favorite player of all time. Unlike Dementieva, I love her game - go for it, lefty (I'm a lefty) - suits what I enjoy to watch.

Upon reading your post, I wanted to address your concerns relating to her level of play. You communicated that you were worried about her drop in play. Please note that this is quite common with Lucie. She plays with such little margin for error that mistakes are naturally going to occur. Lucie's level always 100 percent differs in a match. Due to her style of play she is never going to blow anyone off the court. In the event she drops a first set, she will often come back and win the second set, only to lose the third - just an observation I have noted with her.

If you go back through prior postings you would note that the biggest concern has always been her mentality - she completely collapses under pressure, has done this her whole career. It wasn't until she started working with her previous coach Rob Steckley where this started to become addressed. There are countless matches where she has given away matches after having leads in the final set - point being - this is nothing new.

Point being Lucie is always going to be a 100 percent up and down player - this has been her whole career. On a side note, luckily I did not have to endure much of it last year as I went overseas to the UK to study at university for my post grad degree and therefore did not monitor her tennis religiously like I did in years past. However, following her again this year, I have observed that patterns never change.

I wish she had never parted ways with Rob; however results show she is doing better this year as opposed to last year. I wish her the best cause I know she is capable of so much more. 2015 was a great year to be a fan of hers.

P.S. I would like to point out that I met her in Cincinnati 2012 - where she lost her opening match against Shvedova (after being in the Rogers Cup semi a mere day prior) What really impressed me was that she lost her match but still took the time to give me a personal autograph. I was very touched by that - since other losing players I noticed tended to storm off the stage upon defeat. Probably one of the nicest players on tour. I recall reading an article after the 2015 French Open mentioning players who were so pleased Safarova's success stating that she was one of the favorite players on tour.

Lastly, I've been to Prague for a three day New Year's retreat and I really admire the Czech language. I would really like to learn it as soon as I complete my Spanish courses. Such a unique language.
