I'm getting tired of putting these smilies on Mirjana's threads Come on Mirjana!!
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.
I hope she doesn't have another stellar choke as she had against Razzie...

Lucic was 7-5 3-2 (66:59 on points) and then went to bits and won just 2 more points in the second set. She should have won the first set earlier having had break points at 4-3 and 5-4, finally breaking on 4th set point for 7-5. Second set she had 2 break points for 2-0 but failed to break a 5 deuce game and wasn't taken past 30 on her own serve until 3-3. Good performance for the first 18 games at least.
