Lucie reaches Nottingham semifinals
Lucie Safarova had a good start on grass and reached the semifinals in Nottingham.
But it was not easy as every one of her matches was a long 3 sets battle and she often came close to a defeat.
After beating G. Min (6-3, 6-7, 6-2), S. Hsieh (1-6, 6-3, 7-6) and T. Pironkova (6-3 , 0-6, 6-4), she eventually lost against Donna Vekic (6-7, 6-3, 6-7).
Nevertheless, this was a good run for Lucie, especially considering the fact that she started the tournament only 2 days after the French Open doubles final. She should get back to #40 as from next week.
