I like Lovely Lucie, her game, her sweetness. She is in Doha with her sister and new boyfriend Slovak Kristian Blazda. Lucie has made a bad start the season being fallen in the very opening rounds but in Doha it's another story. Yesterday she beat Caroline Wozniacki and today Svetlana Kuznetsova.
Safarova ousts Wozniacki in Qatar 2nd Round
Lucie Safarova saved the match points with groundstroke winners, then broke Wozniacki and forced a tiebreaker. At 3-3, Safarova had three winners from the baseline against a tiring Wozniacki to pull away, and she won on her first match point after nearly 2½ hours. Lucie Safarova: "Unless you win the final point, the match is not over. I just wanted to keep fighting. It feels absolutely amazing"
Scintillating performance from Lucie Safarova. She was aggressive throughout the match as she saved 3 match points. She hit 56 winners with 71% of her first serves in. She fired 8 aces and packed with 18 points won on the net.
Both will play a quarter-final on Friday, Tomas in Rotterdam and Lucie in Doha
