Re: Sorana Cirstea def. Mirjana Lucic 6-4 6-2
It looks like Sorana has past her rock bottom and is now back to making progress in her game. Obviously it is a long road back but all journeys start with a first step.
As for Mirjana, last year was inspirational. But this year will be even tougher. Mirjana has now got her ranking up at a level where she can expect to be regularly playing against top 100 opposition this year. Last year Mirjana played 70 matches, but only 9 were against top 100 opposition. This year I'd expect at least half of Mirjana's opponents will be top 100. Mirjana is going to have to take her game to a level even beyond what she showed last year if she wants to continue to progress up the rankings, or indeed even maintain her place in the top 100. I hope she can.
