All the Croatian women doubles players got winnable R1 matches

Jurak / Marosi v. Kudryavtseva / Peer (then likely Petrova / Srebotnik [5])
Martic / Mladenovic v. Minella / Moulton-Levy (then likely Makarova / Vesnina [4])

Safarova with Schiavone? I guess she doesn't see Mirjana as a threat. MAybe good.
She did practise yesterday, just not onsite. Court time on site is very hard to get with 356+ competitors looking for court time at the start of a grand slam. Of course Safarova sees her as a threat. She's playing with Schiavone as Schiavone requested her to help her prepare for her match with Kvitova.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Great, thanks for the info. Court 22? Really don't get why would they put them on last court. Not a streamed court?
Ula and Hampton on court 2 and Morita and Tatishvili also ond streamd court.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

Putting a mid-seed on court 22 is a slap in the face. They might as well be playing on a practice court. Hopefully it doesn't make Safarova play better. I think Hampton got a good court because of American TV concerns. Ula, well she is Agies sister.

Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing

she had 40-40 at 6-5* Also, went down 1-6 in the tiebreak before losing it. She returned serve a little bit better at the latter part of the set. Safarova won a couple of games at love on her serve earlier in the set. Safaraova is getting a very high first serve percentage and Lucic is winning precious few first serve returns. She has to hope Safarova
s first serve percentage drops.
