Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread! pt2

Guys we have been talking about 100 points to defend since after Wimbledon. And she has won around 300 points since then so whatever happens it will be fantastic season
And she has almost no points to defend until Spring next year

Depending upon how this match goes, she could put herself in choice territory no matter what.

It is the year-end ranking that counts for her now, and I do mean December 31, 2010.
Why the unnecessary rudeness? I wasn't responding to a comment you had made to begin with, just sharing information with another poster who may not have been aware. I'm also the last person you should be accusing of raining on Miki's parade.

Yes, darling angel, but you know better than any of us that it is the "timing" of this defense-of-points. The strategy is key.

Yes, indeed, those 108 friggin' points were out there forever at the tail-end of 09, but she needs to "position" herself for 2011 (and a MD Aussie Open berth) by specifically shoring-up her finish to this year. It's the whole game, the whole WTA thing, but in her case, it is crucial that she strategize for points in this particular way, at this ass-end of the season.

God, has she won the first set, yet? I am afraid to even look.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread! pt2

Mirjana did the good choice by playing those american ITF instead of Asian quallies.
She's pretty much guaranted to score some wins in all of them and some nice poins too. And she spends less precious money.
She'll get that top 105 position.


But I want her to stop playing before november and have a long off season.
2011 and WTA is what matters most

Gosh, I am sorry; I did not mean anything personally and I apologize. I am sometimes too exuberant (no additional comments from the gallery, thank you) and would never intentionally be rude to you. Your comment was a good comment to which I felt inspired to reply.

Again, I apologize. I did not intend to be rude.

Best,

Ian

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread! pt2

A break here would be nice. Miki's progress this season has been awesome. Merely three-four months ago we were wondering if she would make qualies cut offs at slams, now we're wondering if she'll make the main draw cut offs - a huge leap.

Re: Mirjana Lucic Comeback Thread! pt2

Yes, but Miki will be the first to tell you that she thrives on having a lot of matches and little down-time.

A month off in December to enjoy her comeback with family at the holidays will be ideal. No one on this damned tour has earned it more. But she will indeed need to be in tip-top, out-of-her-mind shape for the launch in Australia in 2011.

She wants to reach that next level, so she will need to be sharper than the sharpest blade, going into next season.

But Miki knows this, guys. She actually, really does.

No worries Ian - I know that you've got no shortage of exuberance - let's just chalk it up to that and keep encouraging our star to keep moving onwards and upwards!
