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?

Miki is entered for $50K Troy Alabama event week of October 11th. She's likely to be the 2nd seed as well.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

Lindsey Lee-Waters is a crafty player, but she is somewhat over-the-hill. Lucic should be able to take her out. Lepchenko was a tougher opponent.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

Another incredible comeback for Mirjana. She truly has balls of--I mean, nerves of steel.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

If memory serves me good Mirjana def. Lindsay last year in Las Vegas QF. I'm not at computer to check but I think it was 7-6 6-3. Hope she can repeat it tomorrow(easier than against Varvara). GL

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

yes, she beat Waters in QF of Las Vegas last year. Look for her to do it again, but for a bigger prize.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

I think Lindsay Lee Waters is brilliant. Two Ls and one W.

(Lethargic Lady Wipes-out)


Anyhow, just to get the usual Miki-gang in the mood, I thought I would risk incurring the wrath of our Most Beloved Britney Spears and hearken back to a tune of Power that supports Mirjana.

If you listen to the lyrics and turn your eyes away from the drowsy 1980s lesbians, you will hear endless cheers for Mirjana. Miki!

Oh Miki You're So Fine!

Yeah.

Nothing against lesbians. Love them! They practically uphold the tour. But Miki rocks like this old f#$%ed-up song.

Best to all ...

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread!

Congratulations! Time for another title I guess

Really great to see Miki fighting so hard, I hope it'll be at least a bit easier today. LLW doesen't really strike me as someone who could really endanger Miki here, cause eventhough her scores in Albaqureque seem very nice, none of her opponents were even top150. Heck, I can't even figure out how she got to these finals, cause just last month she got bageled by Pandzic in Vancouver 75k, and Pandzic took just 5 games from Miki this week. She also lost to Spears (not Britney...) in her last tournament, and got killed by the mighty and powerful superstar of tennis, Silvia Soler-Espinosa in the QR1 of USO.

All in all, a chance is here, now Miki just has to focus once more and take it!

Ajmo Miki
