Amazing stats on serve again Lucie! I'm impressed with how much better she seems to be utilising the 2nd serve which was a massive weakness at the end of last year.
As for the Safina match, you never know but I'd be genuinely shocked if she lost. If she serves like she has done even her poor return game should be enough. Safina has had extremeley harsh draws but the win over Han isn't much of an indication to her game as by most accounts Han was dire.
I wish she wasn't in Marion's section of the draw though, she could've made the final.
We are lies like the Summertime
Like the Spring we are such fools
Like Fall we are false prophets
Like Winter we are cruel
Lucie Played so well despite the mini choke at 6-1 5-1..but 6-1 6-4 against Bartoli is fantastic. Especially since she has never beaten her before this. And her shots were so good, barely any errors and controlling the points well. The three games she lost in a row in the second were pure choke but she got herself together.
