Tough draw for Lucie Safarova in Birmingham: she will play her first round against World number 1 and Wimbledon 2016 finalist, Angie Kerber.
Lucie leads the Head to Head by 2 to 1. They have never played against each other on grass, and haven’t met since 2015.
[Update 18th June 2017: Angelique Kerber has withdrawn from the tournament. Lucie will play her first round against D. Cibulkova who leads the H2H by 5 to 3.]
If Lucie wins the match, she will play R2 either against Lauren Davis or Naomi Osaka. She might potentially meet Kiki Mladenovic in the quarterfinals.
