French Open: Lucie Safarova v Ponchet
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!
