Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

FROM ZL@TKO:

President of the Croatian Olympic Comitee says they are willing to help Mirjana on her way back to professional tennis. He says he is in touch with her and also with Croatian tennis federation that could help her as well. He says she is still young and that she could play good tennis for several upcoming years. Then they mention reasons why she left to USA, her current financial problems and her comeback at Indian Wells.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

The week of 7 May and again the week of 14 May, there are ITF tournaments in Florida: a $50K and a 25K.

The week of 7 May would be a perfect opportunity for Mirjana to play, because there's a HUGE number of challengers going on around the world that week. So the Florida tournament would surely be happy to attract such a good player to what will necessarily be a watered-down field, as the best challenger players have so many choices of where to play.

The week of 14 May also has that 75K in Croatia.

Of course I'm hoping Mirjana will play somewhere during April, and not wait for May. But if she doesn't, and if she doesn't end up playing in Florida or Croatia in early May, then I'm really going to be concerned. I still don't understand why she's not in Dothan this week, where they already know her, and where she could have picked up quite a few ranking points.

I realize I'm getting ahead of myself here, talking about events in May, but the fact is, I look at every entry list of $25K and above, and have not seen Mirjana's name on any list so far. And there are plenty of other unranked players on those entry lists for 7 May.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!


it's a very strong challenger but i hope she can play well
it's on red clay so that's a plus
hopefully this means that she will play a whole bunch of challengers in europe because she wouldn't travel to italy just to play one event and go home
and, most importantly...SHE WILL HAVE A RANKING. if she loses first round, it will be about 500, but hopefully she will do much better

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

SHAME ON YOU MR PRPIC FOR TRYING TO STEAL BREAD FROM MY TABLE (IT MAKES SENSE IN CROATIAN LAUNGAGUE) SHE SAID THAT,COZ HE GAVE NEGATIVE STATMENTS ON TV AND NWSPAPERS...

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

I believe whatever Mirjana sais about Goran Prpić, I never liked him, he always seemed very unprofessional to me!
And he proved it aginst Germany, both in DC and FC!
Good luck Mirjana!
