Fans Corner: “Lucie Safarova is a combination of power and grace”
Fan Story shared by John, USA.
“I haven’t always been a tennis fan. Just in the last ten years or so, I started watching WTA and it was immediately obvious to me that the talent pool in the Czech Republic is deep. Amazing players. Hard working, dedicated professionals and at the same time, down to earth and approachable. To me, the one woman who exemplified all those traits in the finest fashion is Lucie Safarova. It’s virtually impossible to root against her.
Her combination of power and grace on the court and a never say die attitude make her an exciting player to watch. Her partnership in doubles with Bethanie Mattek Sands also made her fun to watch. It brought out a sense of humor in Lucie that made it clear that she loves life and loves the game. It’s very obvious that the two of them are much more than partners, they’re lifelong friends.
I’ve been told by people who’ve had a chance to meet Lucie or spend time with her, that she’s down to earth, warm and friendly. She always makes time for her fans and she’s not just going through the motions. Not at all like the behavior of the professional athletes that we’re used to. And those are just some of the reasons that I Love Lucie.”
