Re: Lucie Australian Open 2011 Thread

She didn't play last week and rested some days for injury, so she may be a little bit rusty and nervous. She just need a match to warm up, I expect she do better next round.

Re: Lucie Australian Open 2011 Thread

Yes indeed you're right, no matter what the score it's a win. Lucie did have that injury strain before aswell, so all in all perhaps not too bad.
Anyhoo, Lucie has another grandslam win in doubles, so she's keeping up the consistency there! Lucie and Sorana won 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 against Borwell/Pelletier.

Re: Lucie Australian Open 2011 Thread

Lucie's return is much better and she hit some moonball and high top spin forehand, this change is very great for her.

Re: Lucie Australian Open 2011 Thread

I think every match Lucie played this year has been three sets hasn't it? Included doubles yesterday. Seems like shes trying pretty hard to lose against Zakapalova, but looks like Lucie just broke her when she was serving for the match. Cmon Lucie, hopefully she can pull it out!!

Re: Lucie Australian Open 2011 Thread

Thankfully Lucie did pull it out, beating Zakopalova 6-3, 6-7(2), 7-5. That match will not go down as a classic though.

It was torture to watch and Lucie is fortunate that the Kookie side of Zakopalova was on display so that she could never count herself out of the match. At the very least she seemed to be more aggressive towards the end and with some donations got over the finishing line.

Back to back grand slam wins though, which means she actually made the round we predicted her to. I doubt Zvonareva's quaking in her boots right now though.

Re: Lucie Australian Open 2011 Thread

Nice win by Lucie. Glad to see she is winning grand slam matches playing at a level not near her best sine for the past couple years she has failed in the first or second round. Granted, I'd rather her play well to win these matches, but her mental game is looking sharp. Zvonareva will be tough, but they're friends and Lucie knows her game well from playing doubles with her probably. So we'll see!

Re: Lucie Australian Open 2011 Thread

This match was hell on earth to be at and lucie got some horrible calls. But I'm so happy she pulled it out. Not much else I can say.

There is a picture on getty images of lucie reacting to a line call, and i rarely saw pictures of Lucie looking angry against umpire Must have been some really horrible calls.

How was the handshake?
Was tomas there ?

So how are your sunburns David ?
