Re: Ajmo Miki! U.S. hardcourt swing

thank you networthy!
wow, this realy is "big" points to defend...
anyway, i just hope she'll do better at US-Open then she did at this years australien open, paris or wimbledon... as for other points is concerned, she'll have enough opportunities (at several events) to defend or even increase them...

it's gonna be tough schedule and probably miki will need some luck with draws; so GL MIKI for every upcomming event!

Were done about 1.5 hours ago. Here's Mirjana's section:

(1) Azarenka v Bye
Arvidsson v Qualifier
Lucic v McHale
Date v (8 WC) Cibulkova

Re: Ajmo Miki! U.S. hardcourt swing

Not the best draw, McHale usually gives her best at home.

Re: Ajmo Miki! U.S. hardcourt swing

the draw could be much worse. she beat mchale on clay which seems to be mchale's favorite surface...

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

Re: Ajmo Miki! U.S. hardcourt swing

She says it's hard and last year she was really good on US hardcourt tournaments.
From Q to R2 in Stanford, last 16 in Cincinnati. This year she defeated Kuznetsova in Indian Wells..

She has ups and downs, just like Miki.

It could have been worse, surely.

Re: Ajmo Miki! U.S. hardcourt swing

i'm totally with you croat123; i actually think it's (i'll be free to say) a good draw, for sure it's an opportunity for Mirjana; go,go,go Mirjana!
...and i expect her to reach QF!

Re: Ajmo Miki! U.S. hardcourt swing

I also think it's a good draw, she's playing R1 against someone she has beaten. After that, the top women have been so inconsistent this year that you really can't predict who she will play as the tournament progresses. She can certainly compete with Domi or Kimiko.

Re: Ajmo Miki! U.S. hardcourt swing

This should be a competitive match. It's a toss up in my mind. McHale is on the rise. Miki can attack the relatively weak McHale second serve. I'd like to see a rematch with Cibulkova, although seeing Miki play Kimiko Date would be interesting for the completely divergent styles between them.

Re: Ajmo Miki! U.S. hardcourt swing

Gorgeous day at the Taube Family tennis center; Mirjana looking pretty darned fit (as fit as I've ever seen her) in practice. Got some photos and video of her session ... she was hitting right next to Cibulkova. I'm sure they had an eye on each other. Miki's hitting partner is making her WORK. Best of luck in the MD. Would also love to see her face Cibulkova again. We'll see ... won't we. Sunburnt and outta here ~~ Watched The Legendary GOATexandra Stevenson go down in an interesting match against the scrappy Boserup, saving 5 match points before the demise. I guess I won't make fun of her anymore.

Maybe.

No more bandages/taping, I hope? Sounds like the time off did her some good.
