thats' exactly what i was talking about, QF-ish results in doubles and then first round defeat in singles together, this is not a good thing if it becomes a PATTERN, unless singles career's been turned into secondary consideration for both, then I'm fine (however I highly doubt she would make that decision at PEAK of her singles ranking)

I agree the problem with Lucie's play in my opinion is stemming from her coaching situation and possibly some other mental factors, not who she's friends with., but shouldn't her puzzling lack of confidence justify some extra "sacrifice" or change in their friendship time to address?

I've been a fan of Pavs for a long time and I know how good she once was, but am just saddened to see her level drop to this shit and looks like she doesn't even care

not something I would like to see on Lucie

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Lucie's level dropped to something far worse than this in her previous slumps, and she got it back together. It's a cycle for her, she's clearly emotional, but there's no specific explanation for her slumps. I fail to see how anyone could say with any authority that pavs is influencing her negatively just because you think Pavs doesn't care that she isnt playing well. She came to Brisbane much fitter and played great and made the final. They both have their own independent issues. I really cannot understand any reasoning for saying she has to sacrifice or change her friendship with Pavs because her confidence is low. If anything it's probably good she has a friend that close.

I mean when you read this http://isport.blesk.cz/clanek/tenis/...-nenapsal.html its pretty clear she felt stifled for a long time when she was with Berdych, and making these new friends/opening herself up to people has freed her up quite a lot.

The source of this slump could even come down to a poor off season, we could theorise for days but it won't make us any closer to knowing.

I wasn't implying to sacrifice their friendship, I was simply suggesting if each has independent issue and teaming up together doesn't really seem to be the remedy (which is the Pattern I mentioned), maybe they could save some of the BFF time to focus on their own problems

Maybe I shouldn't say "I'm just glad Pavs is not there" which doesn't seem to be the right attitude, I apologize

Not sure if I've read that article you linked, but I do feel for her having difficult times in her personal life and was more than happy of her personal high ranking and sublime ending in the Fed Cup last year

I'm not questioning, and would NEVER, her determination to go out of this slump, again IT'S the pattern that worries me and I would love to see/welcome any change

I'm starting to wonder if maybe something is happening in her personal life that we don't know about. I've seen this happen with other players.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

It's possible...I know she broke up with her new BF late last year. But it could be a lot of things, we'll never know I guess.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I wondered if they were still together, I havent seen him around in awhile. Oh well, it doesn't surprise me I guess. I remember seeing him at one of her matches last year and he looked really bored. :/

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Yeah but i doubt it was a huge issue mentally for her that would cause this...they were together less than a year and she was playing well after she broke up with Berdych. Who knows anymore, we'll see how clay goes. If it flops then the slump is real.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

That draw is ludicrous, Oprandi possible second round opponent AGAIN. Serena, if Lucie were to ever play well, AGAIN.
Even Lucic she has already played once this year. Maybe the good memories of Charleston will flood back to her...

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Well Oprandi lost...so she plays Lucic again Having seen their Melbourne match that doesn't excite me greatly, Lucic was zoning in that match but at least Lucie won it...plus she played Lucic in the same round here last year and beat her 6-2 6-0.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Seem to match well enough together, and Lucie was really consistent and played quite well. 4th on centre tomorrow for singles so we'll see if that continues.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

She's split from Biljana and is working with Rob Steckley atm...I saw it on twitter. I would assume that's not full time, he just had a kid. But who knows...I'd say she'll be on the lookout for someone else. I knew the coaching situation was a problem

Srebotnik

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I'd like her to have a full-time coach, one she does not have to share... I'm glad Lucie found her footing on clay wit the doubles; it should make the singles an easier adjustment since Lucic already has a match under her belt.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

I agree, the sharing coach situation was never going to work. It's a shame, I'm disappointed by it. I feel like Lucie was let down by Biljana even agreeing to coach Srebotnik as well in the first place.
