Top 80 really would be expected step.

Let's see the draws first. Those Australian tournaments are usually loaded with good players looking for early season match play.

How exciting for her and us that in the space of 12 or so months that she's gone from 25K qualies to grand slam main draws - on her 3rd in a row and this time direct entry. She's done so well.

I said expected but no that she has to make and I said it that way just because you never know what can happen with draw etc.

Maybe it's your English ( which is good by the way I'm not dissing you ) but the way you phrased it implied it's almost a foregone conclusion. I hope the draw is kind - she deserves a wee bit of help.

Top 80 is very doable for Mirjana; all she has to do is win her first-round match at the AO. Let's hope she gets a good draw.

Nice schedule
Last year she still was playing 25k tournaments. She has very few points to defend from the januari-march last year. So hopefully she starts off the season well.

Yeah, probably..
I mean sometimes it's hard to say what do you think in one sentence and the time when I was writing 'mini-books' on this forum has past since Mirjana got her level somehow back so I don't have anything to say but to congratulate. Anyway I was saying that TOP80 is something she can do easily and it could happen in Australia, and it also seems like a step Mirjana could make before Indian Wells even if she's not gonna do well Down Under. If she's gonna be in form she has a big chance to make huge jump in rankings in the first half of the season, that's for sure.
