I think if Lucie can lift her form this is quite a nice draw, a qualifier to open. Other players in her section - Stosur who struggles on clay, Anna who retired in Warsaw and Safina who Lucie has a great record against.

Come on Lucie - show your Fed Cup form.

Good Luck!!

Lucie has nothing to defend this week. Last year Lucka played and lost round 1 in Prague.
Lucie only has 167 points to defend for the rest of the year!!!

iffy start in berlin. was up a set and 5-4 (serving) before winning 6-3, 6-7, 6-0.

at least it was a strong finish. :lol:

2r vs. either chakvetadze/stosur. winnable.

I attended the match and I was deeply impressed by her performance. I haven't seen a player playing so well in quite a while. Except for that one game in the middle of the second set her serve was really on. I rarely have seen a women serving that good. She surely served like 10 aces, mostly in "critical" situations(e.g when serving for the first set etc.). In the first few games it looked a bit, as if Chakvetadze would be able to dominate from the baseline. But Lucie upped her game, played a lot of angels and hit some beautful winners. To summarize the match: Chakvetadze played good, but Lucie was evenbetter. If she continues to play like that, I can see her reaching the quarter- or even the semifinal here. I liked here before, but today she has really won my heart. :)

Good win against Anna. Not that I am surprised:p
Good Luck vs Dinara.
Lucka leads H2H 2-0 but this is on clay, clay is Dinara's best surface. Interested in seeing what the result is.

You forgot Wimbledon. Even though Lucka has one big zero to defend it's still among top 17 results as a mandatory event. :p

To me 0 is 0, nothing to defend but you are right Lucie only has 166 points to defend:lol: Well less now Berlin has gone on as it will push a 1st round loss out of top 17.
