Yeah first round isn't bad, 2nd round is tough though because Zakopalova just beat Bartoli really easily in Hobart and is in good form, and Oudin really pushed Lucie last year. Zvonareva is also one of the worst 3rd round seeds because Lucie could easily beat some of the others, but I'd be happy if she made that third round. Hopefully she can. Btw who wanted to make the AO thread?
I'm gutted I missed the match when it was on, I turned on expecting to see Murray and I caught the end of the tiebreak. Lucie was definitetly forcing the issue, again it seems she almost eeked out another revival in a match.
Good tournament overall, she's won more grandslam matches in singles than last year's combined.
The signs are encouraging so far, her and her coach have made a quick transition already so hopfully she will build on that and get the consistency of results she needs.
I definitely agree about Lucie looking good with a headband and looking forward to Paris indoors too.
We are lies like the Summertime
Like the Spring we are such fools
Like Fall we are false prophets
Like Winter we are cruel
Saw this recent article about possible exhibition in Prague to feature Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf playing mixed doubles with Tomas and Lucie. Sounds like it hasn't been confirmed at all, but seems like an interesting idea!
