Lena put the cap on a solid, solid week with a win over Lucie, 6-7, 6-1, 6-4. Also a great week for Lucie, who played a great match, and really forced Lena to play well. She made a lot of errors, but she hit a ton of winners too, and was taking the ball on the rise, and hitting some dirty inside out forehand winners. Shades of Rafa, as a lefty.
Elena, however, proved why she’s a consistently top 10 player, and was playing amazingly consistently (unimaginably consistently considering it’s Lena) and she was just too much on Lucie’s serving games and was able to get the break half way through the third set. Just a great match, errors, sure, but both players playing really aggressively was fun to watch, and there were tons of winners. So props to Lena for a great win.
