Wimbledon – The crown jewel of the Grand Slams
The crown jewel of the Grand Slams is going to start tomorrow – monday June 24th 2013.
Wimbledon – The All English Championships in SW19 London is the only Grand Slam where the middle sunday is a day off.
Lucie is seeded on position 27 and starts at 11:30 a.m. local time on monday against Lauren Davis. The Czech and the US-American will play their first round match on court 17. Both never played against each other in their career. For Lucka it is her 8th appearance at this Grand Slam. A best result was the 3rd round back in 2007.
Not only the single matches are important for her but also the doubles. Anastasiya Pavlyuchenkova and Lucie are currently on position 4 in the race to the WTA Tour Final in Istanbul (TUR) this year. En route to it they will try to gain very important points during this Grand Slam. In their first round the Russian-Czech team will face Shuko Aoyama (JPN) and Chanelle Scheepers (RSA).
