Birmingham R2: (Q)Mirjana Lucic def. Karolina Sprem 6-3 5-7 7-6(3)

I can't believe it! Mirjana saves 2 match points to win her second consecutive match at a WTA event for the first time since RG 2001 .

There were 8 breaks of serve, most of them coming in the third set. Karolina hit 18 double faults

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Zarina Diyas, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

That's why Karolina will never even be close to her old level again.

I should be happy for Mirjana but I'm not!
Terrible loss for Karolina, 18 DFs, really gifted this match!

Anyways Mirjana must be delighted with this win, good luck in next round!
