Even in the worst case scenario, I bet someone's going to want her in those weeks with 10+ Challengers going on, like the wild week of May 7. We'll just have to wait and see.

IMG have been the subject of Police scrutiny following Mirjana's abuse. Its seems IMG have a shady side they do not want to become public knowledge. If Mirjana has been denied WC's, then the ITF should call that into question. But they will not. Its all about money now

Unhappy Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

Bad news: Mirjana will NOT be getting a wild card for next week's 75K in Dothan -- this was just reported in the Dothan thread by a reliable poster.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

I'm starting to wonder whether ANYONE will give her another WC.

Very sad situation.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

I'm sure someone will give her a WC eventually. It's just not happening as quickly as we hoped it would. The Memphis and IW wild cards got our hopes up too high, I guess.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

Today while I was at work I heard on radio all the time news about Croatian Tennis Association or some other (i'm not sure because I couldn't hear right ), deciding to help Mirjana come back!
I guess they will give her money!
It's from Media Servis agency, I can't find it on the internet though!

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

it's hope it's HTS (cro tennis assoc) because i don't want her to play for another country (although i'd still love her).

maybe iva majoli can get security for her in zagreb. i'd imagine she'd be safe at the 50K and 75K there and those would be two perfect tournaments for her (+ i'd get to see her for sure on tv if she played the 75K)

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Mateša: Tražimo način da pomognemo Mirjani Lučić

Ponedjeljak, 16.04.2007., 14:16
Mateša smatra da Mirjana može još godinama igrati dobar tenis (foto: A. Lučić)


ZAGREB - Predsjednik Hrvatskog olimpijskog odbora Zlatko Mateša rekao je da HOO traži način kako bi pomogao Mirjani Lučić, tenisačici koja se nakon obiteljske kalvarije i odlaska u Sjedinjene američke države vratila profesionalnom tenisu.
'Ja sam u kontaktu s Mirjanom Lučić, pismenom, i tražimo zajedno s Hrvatskim teniskim savezom način kako da joj pomognemo. Smatram da bi se njoj trebalo pomoći, mislim da je ona dovoljno mlada i da može još godinama igrati dobar tenis' - između ostalog rekao je predsjednik HOO-a.
Dvadestpetogodišnja Mirjana podsjetimo, nedavno se vratila turnirima, no poprilično teška materijalna situacija onemogućuje joj igranje na dovoljnom broju turnira potrebnim za skupljanje WTA bodova i dobivanje renkinga.

Da je na dobrom putu, govore i njene igre na nedugo održanom jakom WTA turniru u Indian Wellsu gdje je upisala prvu WTA pobjedu nakon četiri i pol godine, a zatim i jako namučila odličnu Ruskinju Anu Čakvetadze.
