Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

OMFG that's awful Poor Lucie

I'm sure she wanted to play better, but these things happen. I mean Kuznetsova and Pavlyuchenkova Kuznetsova is such an experienced player, GS winner. She did really well against Petra too. And Pavly has had a good season. Both are ranked higher than Lucie. Lucie is able to beat both of these players, but it's not like they had this in the bag. It's not like she lost again bad players / lower ranked players.

Well thank god they did win the Fed Cup. If these questions are asked even though they won, I don't want to know what happened if they lost that doubles match

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Exactly she was ranked below both of them, so she should definitely not have been expected to win these matches. Really hard on her tbh, and it's lucky that they still won, because I really think she would've been totally crushed if they didn't

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

I think she would've at that stage been swept up in the emotion of winning fed cup. Which is definitely a good thing.

I hope Biljana watched her fed cup matches, and they work really hard in the off season. I know they worked on returns last off season but that still sucks, so more work on that and 2nd serve needs work. A lot of it sometimes, and I'm sure they'll work on that too.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

I was just reading the WTA stats for the year, and these ones include Lucie:

ACES:
1. Marion Bartoli 270 (83)
2. Jarmila Gajdosova 260 (51)
3. Sabine Lisicki 245 (46)
4. Julia Goerges 245 (60)
5. Lucie Safarova 243 (57)
6. Petra Kvitova 241 (61)
7. Lucie Hradecka 237 (36)
8. Vera Zvonareva 235 (75)
9. Rebecca Marino 214 (33)
10. Samantha Stosur 213 (66)

SERVICE GAMES WON:
1. Serena Williams 85.4% (25)
2. Samantha Stosur 79.7% (66)
3. Petra Kvitova 76.6% (51)
4. Sabine Lisicki 75.6% (46)
5. Lucie Safarova 74.9% (57)
6. Caroline Wozniacki 74.7% (80)
7. Ana Ivanovic 74.5% (50)
8. Julia Goerges 73.6% (60)
9. Daniela Hantuchova 73.0% (66)
10. Magdalena Rybarikova 72.9% (28)

FIRST SERVICE POINTS WON:
1. Serena Williams 76.7% (25)
2. Sabine Lisicki 72.9% (46)
3. Lucie Hradecka 71.9% (36)
4. Ana Ivanovic 71.3% (50)
5. Jarmila Gajdosova 70.2% (51)
6. Samantha Stosur 69.9% (66)
7. Lucie Safarova 69.6% (57)
8. Magdalena Rybarikova 69.3% (28)
9. Julia Goerges 69.0% (60)
10. Vera Zvonareva 68.9% (75)

BREAK POINTS SAVED:
1. Serena Williams 67.5% (25)
2. Lucie Safarova 63.7% (57)
3. Samantha Stosur 63.4% (66)
4. Daniela Hantuchova 63.0% (66)
5. Magdalena Rybarikova 62.4% (28)
6. Ana Ivanovic 61.0% (50)
7. Petra Kvitova 60.0% (61)
8. Kim Clijsters 59.7% (28)
9. Kaia Kanepi 59.2% (35)
10. Heather Watson 58.7% (21)

That's quite impressive, especially the BPs saved by these stats her serve is clearly effective (despite the inefficiencies on her 2nd serve, especially when she isn't confident). It also shows her bad her return is, given that she is top 10 on 4 of the serving stats

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Her first serve and first serve+fh combo is clearly her major strength. These stats show that behind her first serve she is one of the elite.

I wish she could return like some of those other girls though. Petra's red hot and sometimes devastating returning has been one of the main factors in her recent rise. Lucie just doesn't seem to be able to do that. Not even close.

The stats also suggest what many suspect- that Serena's serve is head and shoulders above the rest.

Would be interesting to see the stats from last year cause to me she has improved her return game this year.

Impressive stats BTW

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Just wanted to post that Lucie is playing Brisbane (my tournament ) and Sydney before AO. Qualies in Sydney at this stage. Hopefully she can defend the points she got in Aus last year (particularly in Brisbane )

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread

Won the doubles with Petra against Benesova/Hradecka 6-4 5-7 10-6! Good to get a win in doubles undefeated

EDIT: That win also won the comp for team Prostejov
