Official 2012 US Open Lucie Safarova cheering thread!

Draw was just released about an hour ago. Lucie is in the much tougher top half but in section 3 (Sharapova's section).


(19)Petrova
Gajdosova
Halep
Benesova
Cadantu
Wozniak
Oudin
(15)Safarova

Not too bad of a draw if you ask me. Could have been A LOT worse.

Re: Official 2012 US Open Lucie Safarova cheering thread!

My thoughts: this is a terrific draw and at any other tournament I'd be pleased. But Lucie is just a different player at the slams so I don't expect anything big. I'd be thrilled if she has a big run though. It's possible but her last matches at the majors have just been such a bummer that who knows.

Yep and who knows, Sharapova hasn't had a great preparation (and who knows, she might choke on one of those new candies ) But baby steps...

Re: Official 2012 US Open Lucie Safarova cheering thread!

Every time she has a good draw, she plays badly... I dont expect anything big but please dont lose to Oudin, it should be played in TV court, I dont want to see her losing to someone I hate

Re: Official 2012 US Open Lucie Safarova cheering thread!

As long as she doesnt lose to Oudin that would be bad. Wozniak R2 is dangerous and Petrova has been a tough player for her so it's not the best draw..but tbh with Lucie at slams the draw means nothing.

Don't forget that Lucie leads the H2H against Maria 1-0...Granted it was 2010 Madrid when Maria was just coming back from injury but still...

Re: Official 2012 US Open Lucie Safarova cheering thread!

Wozniak lost in straight sets in Dallas this week

Her only good tournament lately was Montreal where she took the advantage of home court and kind draw but thats it

Re: Official 2012 US Open Lucie Safarova cheering thread!

All I'll say is that one match at a time and Petrova is a bit of a nemesis for Lucie.

Re: Official 2012 US Open Lucie Safarova cheering thread!

I just took a look at Petrova 's recent results. She was horrible in last 2 tournaments - losing to Bertens and Makarova. But still it means nothing, When she is off Lucie can lose to anyone

While I am aware of Lucie's god awful performances at Grand Slams this year, I will disown her if she loses to Oudin. My heart would not be able to take it.

She could lose to Halep tbh, wouldnt surprise me. But that's irrelevant to Lucie really, she needs to win 2 matches for that and she hasnt done that in 3 slams this year
