And here we go: Lucie Safarova will play her first tournament on clay of the season, in Charleston (green clay). She will face Varvara Lepchenko (WTA #83) in the first round. Lucie is the favourite as she has won all of their 4 previous meetings. If she is successful, she might meet her good friend and partner Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the second round. Please see below Safarova’s singles draw:
The doubles draw is not yet known but Lucie is likely to participate. She has won 2 doubles titles in Charleston: in 2012 with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and in 2013 with Kiki Mladenovic.
