Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

This thread is off to a tardy start -- people already hate the draw -- and we can only hope that Ms. Safarova does better here than in her last match.

Good luck Lucie, and *please* play to win from the first point to the last.

Re: Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

Well at least since the draw came out before you made the thread, you aren't a jinxer

It's gonna be tough, I mean round 3 is probably as far as she can go, but I'd really just like to see her beat Cibulkova

Re: Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

Nice title.

The most Lucie can do here is the third round because she will never beat Serena on grass. But every time she has been given a favorable draw she has screwed it up horribly, so it would be nice to see her do well with an awful draw for once!

That's true, maybe a hard draw will make her focus hard and play well

Re: Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

I'm liking the thread title! As for the draw, well not so much It's shite, i mean Lucie is the highest seed in her bracket and possibly plays Serena third round.
Cibulkova is no grass fiend but if Lucie is Mrs Inconsistent, Cibulkova is the opposite. Tanasugarns determined game could be tricky too.
Oh well at least with less expectations Lucie might surpass herself, we can only hope.

Re: Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

I wish Safina and MJMS had pulled out before the draw then Lucie would be the 23rd seed and well away from Serena, and this draw.

Lucie is third on court 6...not sure if it has a stream or not, doesn't seem to at the moment.

Re: Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

Well this is grass , so personally i was not exepcting something special from her. I don't think she likes this surface otherwise she will try to prepare better herself for Wimbledon. Moreover, you can't act as a grass player with just snapping fingers, movements and rebounds are different. I'm going to talk about myself, i don't know if anyone play regularly tennis here and make tournaments, i do and in my tennis club we don't have any clay courts, only hard courts, and when i have to play tournaments on clay i always have so problems because i'm not used to play on it and this is something you have to learn. I put grass in the same bag
So I tell my life and give my opinion about Lucie's on grass I don't think it's a big deal, i'm more focusing on lucie's hard courts season

Congrats to Domi

Re: Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

Bah I was asleep for the match, but given that she served for the first set, I'm really annoyed that she lost. This was a bad draw anyway, but still, she loses her serve too much when trying to serve things out.

Re: Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

Your're right Robert.

Or I guess it's Lucie's Woeful 'Oh Well' Not Quite Winning a Match at Wimbledon Thread.

Sorry everyone. David I was following point tracker and the first set was annoying.

Laura, I definitely hear what you're saying about the surfaces. Sometimes I wish people talked more about tennis from a playing perspective on the boards.

I think Lucie could have a good game for grass. My argument -- and maybe I'm wrong here -- is she need only look to Nadal (or Lopez to a lesser degree) on the men's side and Makarova on the women's side to see what damage she could do as a lefty on grass.

A lefty with a strong serve like Lucie should be able to win service games and points with ease on grass. Makarova just went through Eastbourne qualies and main draw winning straight sets and Azarenka was simply not returning Makarova's serves out wide in the final.

Granted Makarova hits a lower flatter ball on groundstrokes than Lucie and doesn't have as big of a swing, especially on the forehand side. I think Lucie's form or technique is more fun to watch, but Makarova is obviously a lot more effective.

Anyway, let's stick a fork in this thread.

Re: Lucie's Wild Wonderful Quite Winning Wimbledon 2010 Thread

Oh dear what a non-starter this thread will now be Such a shame Lucie could have gained some points here and her last two slam results exactly the same as last year so no improvement. Hopefully Lucie can find some inspiration leading up to the final slam of the year
