Lucie in action against Anabel Medina Garrigues *nice to see she is playing injury free*





Today Lucie played her first round match in Madrid. Her opponent was Anabel Medina Garrigues of Spain, not a nobody... she won the Estoril title on Saturday. The match was the third on Court 4, unfortunately there was no tv, no live stream ...but I guess Tomas was there cheering for her.





Poor Lucie....  when things started going wrong...









She came back. What a fighter! Bravo Lucie... Tie Break!









What a thriller! who will win the encounter?









And the winner is... Lucie Safarova. Bravo Lucie! Great result!

The match lasted a little over 2 hours and 30 minutes and we have Lucie into second round!













All crashed out of Madrid Open in first round, defending champion Aravane Rezai included. Lucie can be proud.




On the men side, some big upsets too in first round: Stanislas Wawrinka, Alexandr Dolgopolov, Nicolas Almagro, Ivo Karlovic, Mardy Fish, Kei Nishikori, Richard Gasquet and... Andy Roddick. Tomas is scheduled to play on Wednesday.
