$50K Las Vegas QF: (4)Mirjana Lucic def. Abigail Spears 7-6(3) 7-5!

8th win in a row and 11th in last 13 matches. She served really well, all games were to 15 or to love but she had blackout in 9th game of first set and 10th of second and lost serve as Spears converted only 2 BPs she had in the match. But Lucic broke back for 5-5 in first and won it 7-6 as well for the 6-5 lead in second.

Lucic's BPs: 3/14 so the result could have looked much better. Next for Miki is winner of Lepchenko(who she hardly def. last week) - Tatishvili match.
Also now her chances for AOpen MD are really high

Great to see her backing up her title from last week with solid wins and a deep run here too.

Hopefully she can get a solid foothold in the top 100 and then go from there - her shots are sledgehammer blows but the only way she'll hurt the elite is to believe in her abilities and get her confidence up.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

well done Miki on defeating Britney! Err... I mean Abigail...

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
