It would be equaly hard for Mirjana.
I think Mirjana can beat Keys. Keys is very young and may not have the patience to wait out Mirjana's powerfull but sometimes erratic game. I would think Mattek-Sands would be the tougher opponent for Lucic. We'll see.

Mirjana in the QF

Probably because the 14 points she got by reaching R2 is still lower than her 16th best result (taking into account the mandatory events).

Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer

That's dumb that they are not being placed on stadium (well, it's a challenger, so I wouldn't say stadium, more like center court) - Madison Keys is an upcoming American player, and this has the potential of being very competitive, so dumb move tournament organizers. Why would they put a doubles match on center court over this?

Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer

The only thing I can think of is they don't want to give anyone too little rest for the match on Sat. so no third match on center court.

Whoah. You are correct. And you know Mirjana realizes this. And she doesn't like it one bit. She's a proud character. I expect she'll come out firing against Keys, with all her power on display.

Could be a wreck ... Could be a win. But she'll be at full power tomorrow.

So far Mirjana has a best16 of 638 pts = #107

And if...

Semifinal b16-658 = #105
Final b16-686 = #100
Winner b16-718 = #93

Obviously everything is based on this week ranking.
Karatancheva, Tsurenko and Puchova are gonna losing enough points to finish behind Lucic, so she'll probably reach at least #104.

Let's see and good luck!

Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer

Just watched Graf match form 99. One easy volley she missed to lose that second set...
If she didn't who knows where she would be today.
But, again, she's on court, probably figthing.. go miki

Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer

i just hope mirjana is not injured... also, i hope she'll won this match too... this is great opp. for mirjana to gain some confidence back and just to squeeze into top 100 again... to be honest, i was scared about her first match against kudryavtseva and it seams to me that training with Prpich is showing results already.... the ultimate test will come at the begining of the year-couple of tournaments at the begining of the year and ofcourse AO where, i hope, she secured MD.... if she still has the hunger she still can make some nice results like Wimbledon this year... i truely hope for better begining of the season than this year....

Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer

Ugh, Mirjana lost, 57 16. I thought she would win this. I'm very disappointed--it was a good chance to reach a $75K SF.
