Auckland 1R: Anne Keothavong def. [WC] Mirjana Lucic 6-4 6-2

Well done Anne!

Not the best quality match, both hitting alot of errors but Anne won all the big points, ran down everything and served it out to love. She looks like she belongs in the main draw of tour events now, which is good to see.

Why did they give her a WC again?

Great to see Anne winning her first match of the year!
Wow, Mirjana bashes this poor ball so hard, but as a result she made so many UEs. Even Anne said in the interview 'she's all-or-nothing player' . Funny comments about the crowd too!

Ana Ivanović.

Agreed. It wasn't like this was a Date-Krumm situation where she won a bunch of challengers. Mirjana can't even get past the qualifying half the time when she plays challengers these days.

I'm glad she FINALLY played a full schedule last year, but she's not ready for WTA level yet at all.

Too bad Mirjana! Wow did she ever look thin compared to her teenage days.

I missed the match

So glad Anne won, she should keep moving up the rankings as she is not defending very much from the beginning of the year.

Could anyone tell me what she said about the crowd?
