Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

And to be fair, we could have said the same thing after her loss to Li having mp. However she rebounded from that loss quickly.

Something feels eerily strange about this loss though, but that may be in due fact to the epicness and momentum shifts of the match. Luckily I missed the entire first set as I was in debating class but I was following the scores on my phone and I was impressed with how well she held serve the whole first set. She had just one bp on her serve and it was set point but she saved it. More impressive because she was winning barely any points on Sharapova's serve which always put the pressure back on her but she served tough.

Man, this is just one of those matches that will be talked about for a long time when at the same time it's a match you never ever want to think about again.

I know it's haunting me the 6-5 game is hard to think about. I just want to move on, I can't imagine how she feels. I'm glad her sister was there, she seems to have a great relationship with her and that would have helped.

EDIT: It seems she's pulled out of doubles

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

No surprise really. She looked devastated at the end and is probably not in the mood to deal with doubles. I only hope she can bounce back and make the semis at least in Estoril. But it's a tough field for an international.

I think that's a problem though, it's kind of emotionally negative to let that overcome her and just run away from it. It would have been pretty proactive to play the doubles, but she would have to be really exhausted.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

But looking back on that interview you posted a few days ago, she sounded as though she had been prepping hard for clay. Not the exact quote but "I'm playing consistent this year and losing only in close matches to top players but I know clay will be my win" or something to that effect. She probably knows she should have won this and might feel that her goal to do well on clay is going to result in a repeat of how the year has gone thus far.

Or, I am reading to much into this as I have been up a really long time. (6 hours before the match started) lol.

It was the first three set tiebreaker since 2010 but the first 7-6 6-7 7-6 in main draws since Quebec 2001 Shaughnessy d. Stevenson (via Kleine Biere).

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Sad to say I watched that whole match.... So, so, so depressing. Really that 6-5 game is what makes it so bad. She looked completely crushed after the match. Perhaps she will bounce back strong from this. But whereas the Li match I think made her believe, this will hurt her confidence. Like those two double faults after being 30-0 up. Ugh. I hope she recovers eel from this. Guess we'll see. Poor Lucie,

And I doubt she pulled out of doubles because she was upset. She wouldn't do that to her doubles partner.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Maybe when the dust has settled she'll reflect on what was almost a remarkable comeback.

Yes she capitulated again in the pressure moment, but she must have been mentally fatigued toughing out from 5-1 down.

Lucie's fighting with her heart when behind, if only she could find a way of dealing with being in front in matches.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Beat Rybarikova in 3 sets today, after she had a 3-1 lead in the first, then lost it 4-6. Won other two 6-0, 6-0. She was pretty bad in the first set, error after error after error..Glad she found her game and rhytm after though.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Talk about extremes... all tiebreaks last week to a double bagel in Oeiras.

Impressed that she adapted so well after the first.

Possibly Hercog next, could be epic too.

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

We can't give her enough credit for this win, honestly. You know, we talk a lot about how mentally weak she is, but at the same time it takes a strong player to come back the next week with a win like this. Goes to show she has moved on from that tough loss. A double bagel guys! Let's not underestimate this. So far this year, Safarova is number 29 out of the top 30 in winning bp's in matches. To score a double bagel after last week's catastrophe is really remarkable. I only saw the first set for I had to go to class, but I was following the scores and before I even got out of class she had already won. However, watching the first set, she was atrocious. But she often struggles with slices to her backhand so it was understandable, but my gosh, she was horrible from what I saw in the first set. I'm really hoping the full match gets posted on Youtube this evening.

By the way, I didn't see her coach during that first set. Is she playing solo this week?

Re: Lucie Safarova Cheering Thread - Volume 2

Not shocked at all by that BP conversion stat, only compensates by saving a fair few on her own serve.
