Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer
I attended the tournament yesterday. Mostly, I watched men's qualifing from the center court and grandstand 1, but around 5 pm I went to the other side of the facility where the practice courts are, as well as grandstand 2 and courts 1 and 2. I saw a bunch of WTA players practicing, but Mirjana was not among them. I guess she practiced earlier in the day. I recognized Barboro Strychova. She actually has a pretty good body. But, I'll digress. Then, I watched the end of the second set on grandstand 2 of Jennifer Elie v. Lauren Davis. I honestly had never heard of Elie before. She was down a set and at it was 2-2 in the second. Davis cramped up and then got broken. I heard later she lost in three sets. Davis didn't look very powerfull, but wasn't very consistent either, at least of what I saw. I thought, how did Mirjana lose to her. But, I think Davis just had a bad day yesterday. I recognized Sesil Karanacheva in the bleachers. I say bleachers because all of the seating, save for the center court, is bleacher type seating, even the two grandstands. Sesil was rooting for Jennifer Elie for some reason, maybe the same coach or something?
Court 1, where Mirjina is playing today, has very limited seating, with just 10 or so rows of bleachers on one side. and no seating on the other side. I will be very close to the action and might wear ear plugs, thanks for the heads up MikiReturns on De Brito. I'll take some photos and post them later.
