Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

TOTAL bummer for Mirjana. Chance to start the year with a main draw berth and very winnable match-ups.

Why do I have a feeling this may be due to the HORRIBLE airport and travel nightmares we've been having from the Midwest to the East Coast the last few days? Cancellations across the board in terms of flights, due to atrocious weather.

Hope she makes it to Sydney.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Aye yi yi. What a weak draw at Shenzen. Opportunities galore for everyone.

Still, one never knows where Lucic-B might have landed.

One would have to think her travel plans were snagged by inclement US weather (as opposed to injury) because just showing up and losing in the first-round (or retiring with an injury) would have netted her over $3,100.

Now she'll have to duke-it-out against a tough and thankless qualifying field in Sydney (if she makes it there).

Hopefully, 2013 will not be another year of "Missed Opportunity" for M-LuBar.

Not a good start -- Shenzen was a huge missed opportunity in every way.

Oh well.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Mirjana's on her way to Down Under right now.

Last day of 2012, ahead of 2013 only one message for Mirjana and her fans:

Who endures, he succeeds! Courage is good, but endurance is better. My prayers are with you!

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

^ Yep. True.

Really hope she gets a great draw in the Sydney quallies. So many of the Top 50 girls seem particularly rusty coming out of the gate this year: Woz, Stosur, McHale, Safarova, etc. while the Pervaks and Parmentiers and Svitolinas are hungry.

Hope Mirjana can get some traction. Good luck to her and her fans -- Happy New Year, as well.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Sydney Q draw is out. Mirjana plays Cepelova in QR1. Winner plays Hlavackova or Kr Pliskova.

Good luck!
