Re: Australian Open 2014 Hoping Thread

No one followed the match? Lol...well it was 7-5 3-6 6-1 over Glushko...came back from 5-2 down in the first set, but Glushko was playing so well I could not believe how much risk she was taking yet it was paying off...and she was running everything down and seemed to hit a perfect shot on the run every time She also had a lot of meltdowns at linecalls. Lucie was playing a little bit too passively, through the middle of the court until the last set when she opened her shoulders a bit and hit some shots. However she injured her thigh, she had treatment at 4-1 in the third and got it strapped, and after that went down 40-0 but then won 9 points in a row to win. Her serve wasnt the best, probably missed too many first serves again until the third set when she got a lot more free points off it. She was super happy with her win, but her and her bf are too touchy.I was like yuck stop touching each other Im worried about that injury, and Hradecka won so easily today, but its gonna be really hot the rest of the week and Hradecka is definitely not as fit as Lucie. We'll see what happens with her thigh injury though.

Re: Australian Open 2014 Hoping Thread

Thanks for the pics David. I doubt Lucie H will play as well in the next round as she did today. But it's still quite dangerous. I think Lucie S will get through this round though.

I doubt I can follow her match in AO this year, I need to work so I can only check the result. Good luck to Lucie, hopefully a 4th round after so many years

Re: Australian Open 2014 Hoping Thread

I followed the match every point but I was watching Kvitova and Zakopalova so I didnt want to keep jumping back and forth to this thread, but great win!

Re: Australian Open 2014 Hoping Thread

Well, three sets, but does defend her second-round position from last year. Faces Hradecka. Lucie is 2-0 against her, but this is their first meeting on hardcourt.

Re: Australian Open 2014 Hoping Thread

She beat Hradecka on grass though

It seems she didn't practice today...unless she did it indoors because they dont post those courts around the grounds. That could be worrying

Re: Australian Open 2014 Hoping Thread

I watched Lucie's match on the live scores but forgot to post. So woohoo for Lucie! That thigh injury is worrisome though. Hopefully she is just being cautious about it. Also, I think the heat should help Lucie tomorrow.

It's good that she's first up as far as I'm concerned. She never plays well when she has to wait around all day for matches that last forever. She should play relaxed tomorrow, I think, since she got that first round out of the way. And I think not having an open draw with Li Na in her way probably relaxes her a bit. But we'll see, I could be just completely wrong.

Re: Australian Open 2014 Hoping Thread

It may have only been Glushko but at least she showed some mental fortitude when her opponent came out firing on all cylinders. A first round victory anyway!

Hradecka is a talented shotmaker but agree the conditions should favour Lucie.

Unless she succumbs to another injury again...

Re: Australian Open 2014 Hoping Thread

3 sets against Glushko is not impressive. But Lucie into Aus Open R2 !

Lucie has to reach R3. Head To Head vs Hradecka is 2-0. Lucie is ranked #26, while Hradecka is only #146 and far away from her best form. Hradecka always sucked at Grand Slams, her best result is R2. Hradecka lost 14 x in R1 at Grand Slams, and reached 6 x R2. There is no excuse for Lucie to lose this match. She has to win it, and she should. Lucie is the better player than Hradecka. If she plays well she will win. Do not fuck it up, Lucie.
