Mirjana Lucic: Quebec and Beyond to Finish 2011

The draw is out for Quebec's Bell Challenge. Mirjana is in the bottom half of the main draw and plays Jamie Hampton in R1, with a likely 2nd rounder against Strycova and possible quarter against second-seeded Safarova.

Stranger things have happened.

Re: Mirjana Lucic: Quebec and Beyond to Finish 2011

not the worst draw ever. hampton is streaky, but she's fast and has a decent serve for her size. get her miki!

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

She beat Hampton last year at a 25.000 challenger for the title. That was the begining of her push to the top 100. I favor her against Hampton who hasn't progressed all that fast in the rankings.

Re: Mirjana Lucic: Quebec and Beyond to Finish 2011

Jamie missed a lot of tennis this summer with injuries, so I think she's better than her ranking indicates. Like Mirjana, she had her big push last year and has struggled to keep her new position this year. I really like them both, which means I'll be both happy AND disappointed no matter how it turns out. I guess the best I can hope for is a really competitive match with both players playing at their best so they can both feel good about it afterward, whatever the outcome.

Re: Mirjana Lucic: Quebec and Beyond to Finish 2011

I watched a lot of Jamie's play last year in the Stanford qualifying rounds and she is erratic, not thegrittiest player out there, and can also get very down on herself. If Mirjana is remotelyfocused, she ought to come through against her. Then, it would be very interesting to see how she matches-up against (presumably) Zalahvova-Strykova, who is rather sketchy lately, and I would love to see her in a quarter against Safarova.

Gosh ... still dreaming of a wild run to the finish-line for Mirjana. With this draw and a break from the WTA hard courts & conditions, she has got to believe she can win an event like this. If she plays like she did in late May-early July, she can certainly beat them all.

30 points for beating Hampton. Please don't blow it, Mirjana. Pleeeeease...?

Re: Mirjana Lucic: Quebec and Beyond to Finish 2011

[8] Tatishvili v Q
Krajicek v [WC] Pelletier
Q v [WC] Wozniak
Dubois v [4] Marino

This 1/4 would be perfect draw but she can still play a player from that part of the draw. Just play your game, Miki!

Re: Mirjana Lucic: Quebec and Beyond to Finish 2011

Krajicek/Safarova(3) vs Lucic/Oudin

slam champs
winnable...safarova was terrible at the us open (even worse than miki)

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

Re: Mirjana Lucic: Quebec and Beyond to Finish 2011

Good for Mirjana -- glad to know she is remaining positive and eager to keep going forward into the Top 50. She certainly has an entire five months of openings to make significant movement like that next year. Good luck.

And three cheers for Samantha Stosur. that shut Serena up.
