I'm thinking lots of errors from Mirjana?

Still a straight set win, not exactly what I call a squeak

Glad to see her back on court, I hoped for a more ideal start to 2011 so really any win right now is reason to be pleased thus far

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

She also lost her last pro match 6-0 6-1 to Julie Ditty I'm glad Mirjana took advantage of the best draw she could have had, but this should have been a lot easier. It's her first match in over a month though, so hopefully she starts to get better with more matches.

Good point. It's probably fair to say that Sanchez's ranking doesn't reflect her playing level.

I noticed that too. I'm glad Mirjana drew Sanchez because I fear that today she would have lost to everyone else in the quali draw!

Could/should have been easier though I've never seen Sanchez play but 5 & 3 is hardly squeaking through.

First match in 2 months plus a windy day spells an erratic day for anyone.
