Lucie Motivated for Melbourne Masterpiece

who likes my awesome title

Since the draw is out, and Lucie will play Monday, and the OOP is out tomorrow, I decided I would make the thread (if someone else wanted to, you can do RG )

So Lucie plays McHale in round 1, Q or Erakovic round 2, Jankovic round 3 and Wozniacki round 4...but that's looking ahead.

McHale is an ok first round draw, a lot of her big wins and good runs came only in the US, she hasn't done much outside the US yet. But she is young and definitely dangerous, and Lucie will need to play well for the win. I'm hopeful of another 3rd round, but we'll see.

Re: Lucie Motivated for Melbourne Masterpiece

Well I didnt wanna make it if someone else did but i gave them a day so I decided it was time to have one.

I think it's definitely a better draw than it couldve been, I just hope she plays well and wins matches that she should win

Re: Lucie Motivated for Melbourne Masterpiece

The draw is easier than expected. I would be happy if she make to R3 but I always expect more of her. This is another good chance in GS after RG2010 and US2011 since she always do better in AO and she is in good form. let's see what she perform

Nice title.
This draw isnt bad,if she plays well,she can reach 4th round with no problems.Only in that case she would actually gain some points.and no choking this time please.

Re: Lucie Motivated for Melbourne Masterpiece

Doubles with Sorana again! I love watching them together but they got 9th seeds Grandin/Uhlirova...but imo it's winnable.

Re: Lucie Motivated for Melbourne Masterpiece

I know nothing about Mchale's game, is she a big server, a big hitter, a ball pusher or something like Niculescu

I like when she played with wozniak, they were fun to watch together
Wonder why she doesn't play with krajicek ?

Re: Lucie Motivated for Melbourne Masterpiece

I like the title too.

Sorana and Lucie together= lots of big hitting, not a lot of thinking. Could be great, could be an errorfest. Fun to see though. Grandin and Uhlirova are pretty much the opposite. They are weaker singles players (Grandin is a little out of shape) but they use their heads to play good doubles. Both teams will have lefty-righty combinations.

Not like Niculescu, thank goodness.

It's quite hard to define her game. She doesn't hit the ball really big, and some people have described her as a pusher but I don't think that's quite right. She has a better serve than you would expect from her. She's not that big but she gets reasonable pop on it and places it quite well. No doubt Lucie will help her serve to look even better than normal.

Off the ground she hits quite solidly but not huge. Sometimes she gets tight and starts pushing it, but at other times she hits through the ball pretty well, especially with the forehand. I think she's more of a thinking player than anything. Nothing like Lucie.

To get some idea, you can see highlights of one of Christina's best matches (the win over Caro) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN-fEb88sE4

Lucie should be able to target her weaker bh side, but then you never really know what Lucie will come up with.
