French Open: Lucie Safarova v Ponchet

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The French Open draw is out! Lucie is not seeded and will play her first round against French Jessika Ponchet (WTA #228).
This will be their first meeting. 

If Lucie wins, she might face a tough challenge in the second round: Karolina Pliskova. 
Kaja leads the head to head 6-2. Lucie’s victories were on clay but since Safarova just came back to the competition, this will most likely be a difficult match.

R3 potential opponents include Sharapova and Bondarenko while R4 might be against Serena Williams or Julia Goerges.

Lucie will also play doubles, this time with Svetlana Kuznetsova. The doubles draw was not yet released.

Best of luck to our Lucie!

      Hi Julia,

      Since Lucie’s return date was uncertain, Bethanie committed to play the clay season with Latisha Chan.
      And Barbora is teaming up with Andrea Sestini Hlaváčková.

    What tournaments is Lucie playing during the grass season and is she playing with Bethanie at wimble don.

    1. Morgane says:

      Hi Sue, Lucie should play Mallorca in two weeks. So far she has not entered any other tournament. As for Team Bucie, Lucie and Bethanie are supposed to discuss the situation after the French Open and decide if they will play together or grass or not.
