WWW AO 1R: Mirjana Lucic vs. Sorana Cirstea?

I haven't seen a thread for this interesting match-up.
Lucic is again very lucky with her GS 1R opponent. Their H2H consists of one crazy scoreline from few months back

She did beat Barrois, Dushevina and Scheepers only this year.

Re: WWW AO 1R: Mirjana Lucic vs. Sorana Cirstea?

Hard to call. I like both girls and would be happy for whoever won this match. As for trying to predict who will win I think probably all we have to go on are the very few matches that both have played thus far this year and use that as an indication of form. On that basis I am inclinded to think Cirstea will be the favourite, having had solid wins over Dushevina, Barrois and Scheepers this year.

However, while using the 1st two weeks of the season as a gauge for assessing a player's form is probably our only realistic means of comparing the level of players prior to the AO it is hardly reliable.

So I will say that while the results of the first two weeks of the season point to a Cirstea win, anything can happen here.

I am a fan of Mirjana...but she has not been in good form over the Australian season so I'm going to go with Sorana who has had better wins already this year

Sori to win in 3. Really hope she wins this one. She seems to be playing a bit better so far this year so can do it

Cirstea Kirilenko Goerges Ivanovic Cibulkova Petkovic
Paszek - Vesnina - Minella - Gajdosova - Robson - Pennetta

Re: WWW AO 1R: Mirjana Lucic vs. Sorana Cirstea?

Mirjana something like 7-5 6-0

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.

Hope to God, Mirjana. She's worked so fucking hard to get back to this stage (direct entry at an MD) and now she needs to take the next step and get a win. AJMO AJMO AJMO!

Sorana will be tough. That Quebec City match they played was bizzare to say the least, but the surface was also quite a bit quicker than the AO hard courts.

Craziest match I've ever seen, that Quebec City one. Expecting nothing less this time.
