Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!
OMG! I would rather go to Mars than be prodded by Dr. House!
This is, clearly, another bizarre twist in the Miki-Story. Our Girl. What can we say about her? I like croat123's comment, too: Best fighter on tour.
Most people would not know it, because so many of these fights have come in out of the way places, but she certainly has shown gusto, eh?
More to the point, I think she has shown the ability to "gather herself" and re-focus out there, mid-match, which is like frickin GOLD on the tour. Really, it is.
Mentally it is so so so so so hard - you all know that because you play. This game, even for a power-queen like Miki, is sooooooooooo mental.
Such an abrupt shift in match momentum is indicative of her trouble with Babs' leftiness or her over-eagerness. But her mind is so devoted and strong. She just would not LOSE, and that specific turnaround is the mark of a champion, and Miki has that talent. If she ever gets in a position to make another Slam semi ... these types of matches will change her world. They are so schizophrenic ... portending immense victory or immense failure, and she is "fixed" on the victory.
I have to hand it to her, she has made my year a happier year, just following her, and it is nice to know that we, her admirers/fans/supporters are a "select group".
Do I even dare join the circle to see her face the Lee-Waters Sasquatch tomorrow?
