Mirjana Lucic preparing for a big run at Wimbledon?

Lucic is really beating the crap out of the low-level players at B'ham right now. We can safely assume that she has asked a WC at Wimby, and if she gets it, could be a threat to anyone. Lucic has bad movement but she is a dangerous player on grass and after Schiavone at RG would it be such big surprise if she puts together a huge run?

Are you kidding? It would be a huge surprise.

Nothing has indicated she is going to do this. Its not like she has been cleaning up in on the ITF circuit this year.

Not impossible, but certianly a big surprise.

Re: Mirana Lucic preparing for a big run at Wimbledon?

it's far too early (or late depending on which way you're looking at it) to be making big predictions for her in a grandslam MD. i'm ecstatic that she won her first round match in birmingham although i'm not in denial of the fact that she was blessed with drawing MDM in the first round. Still she took the opportunity and won and i'm hoping she will get a kind draw at the wimbledon qualifying.

She only defeated Mariana Duque Marino who's an absolute shit of a grass court player.

She barely beat Hlavackova in qualifying, had a win over Danilidou who hasn't been a top 100 player in 5 years, and trashed an out of form claycourter on grass.

I like Mirjana a lot, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here. Besides, she needs to qualify for Wimbledon first anyway. That said, she could certainly win a few matches or even cause an upset or two if she did make the main draw.

Daniela Hantuchova.

She'd beat you, so there's no need to be so rude. Plus, what would you know anyway, she's barely played any grass court matches in her life. Don't generalise all clay court specialists please.

Well, I hope she doesn't get a MDWC at Wimbledon. She just made it into the qualifying draw. I would prefer her to play qualies, where she would have a good chance to reach the MD though.

Jelena Dokić ~ Kim Clijsters
Angelique Kerber ~ Simona Halep

Jelena Ostapenko - Mona Barthel
Petra Cetkovská - Jana Čepelová
