Lucie

Must have been quite a match

Now against Petkovic, that will be a tough one
Don't let her do the dance Lucie....

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

So 18 aces is the most in a match by anyone this year well done Lucie.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

A good job with the aces. But even with so many aces compared to her opponent, she was pushed to two close tiebreaks and won in the third (admittedly a onesided third).

Her ace count/df ratio was much better than Kristina in the first two sets yet they went to tbs. More evidence that Lucie's returning/breaking abilities are unfortunately much worse than her serve.

Still, 18 aces is impressive. So much for tall players like Barrois having the advantage of wingspan when returning.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Yeah, I think the worst worst part of Lucie's game is her return of serve on break point she misses them so much.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Lucie vs Petkovic is 5th match on..some court I forget

Interested how this goes...as much as the conditions in IW don't really suit Lucie, particularly at night, I think it's very similar for Petkovic..the ball will fly on both of them and the wind seems to influence both of their games So whoever sucks the least in the conditions will win

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Lucie lost 7-6(8) 7-5. Many advantages to take the opening set in the tiebreak, including SP's, but DF to give it away.
She saved several BP's with aces at 5-4 second set, but the very next game threw in 2 DF to gift the break again.

Although the serving was good the returning was mostly mediocre at best throughout, she didn't create a BP and only took Petkovic to deuce twice. On the other hand she was only broken once, so tight match.

Hopefully Miami will be a better prospect. At least a few points gained.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Lucie . Needed to take her chances in that first set. She had 2 SPs didn't she, and Andy took her first SP. Not that surprising that she couldn't threaten Andy's serve, but it's not acceptable to let an opponent win 75% of their second serve points. I guess that's Lucie's returning for you.

Good luck in Miami, hopefully back to the KL form!

Close match. Shame she couldn't take the 1st set.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Double faults lost her this match Giving petkovic both sets with them and horrible returning...really a match she could've won without the double faults especially considering she had a SP on her serve in the first, and got her first serve in but IW has never been happy hunting ground for her, and she'll be seeded in Miami so she'll avoid this kind of match in the 2nd round at least. Disappointed though, she had a real chance.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Definitely a bummer, but doesn't look like a terrible match. Indian Wells is not her tournament anyway. She has a better shot in Miami.
