Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

just checked the score, afraid it was Miki who's injured.

sad for Jelena, but relieved it's not Miki who's injured

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day


=Good luck to my favourite players: Mirjana Lucic, Elena Dementieva, Li Na, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Vera Zvonareva, Zheng Jie, Venus Williams =

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Jankovic looked like she was injured or just didn't want to play from the beginning. She was serving softballs and Lucic was a sitting duck at net. Lucic.s first serve was very good when it went in. Her volleying wasn't great but at least she was trying unlike Jankovic. I have a feeling Jelena just wanted to get out of Australia i.e. don't expect her to miss any singles action with an injury.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

i thought miki was playing well too. good serving, solid groundies. a few good pick up volleys (and her standard high volley misses)

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

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Not a big Jelena fan right now.

Of course, one cannot say definitively, but in my opinion this crap smacked of JJ "Diva Nonsense."

We all saw Miki very intense and determined. I understand that the dubs doesn't mean as much to JJ, but frankly any of us could see this meant a lot to Mirjana.

Whatever. I hope Jelena will somehow "survive" and hope Miki goes forward to sharp tennis this season.

But, as a longtime observer of the game, it looked to me like Jelena was hungover from a couple nights partying (which she can afford -- for NOW) and just didn't want to hang around town.

Fine, but she ought to have told Mirjana, who clearly came to PLAY.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

I'm glad she actually was injured. I would hate if she tanked.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Whatever the situation may be -- unfortunate.

Hope Mirjana works hard and shows what she can do in the Midland, Michigan $100K.

Looking at her this evening, she certainly is as fit as any woman on tour and her power is -- WOW.

Miki has her own unusual, unique power as a hitter. Guess that's one reason we like her.

Best of luck to a player who has already proved herself honorable.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Is it true that Miki also got QF points because JJ retired ? One guy on croatian forum said it few times already but I dont believe it

You mean because they got W.O.? Hope it's not true because that rule would leave a lot of space for calculations at times.
And also if it is Mirjana just stayed in Australia 5-6 days longer(from her R1 doubles match), earned no points and played 3 games.

She really does have awesome power. There was at least one point where she overpowered Pavlychenkova, who is herself no weakling. I have watched a lot of her matches both livestream and in in person and I have yet to see her lose because she was overpowered. Even Sharapova didn't really overpower her, just she made a crapload of UEs that day.
