Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Well done Mirjana!
Excellent start in tournament!

Craybas is type of player which troubles Lucic but this time I don't think she will.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

I can't wait to watch the stream tomorrow. Craybas will throw junk at her but I think Mirjana can handle it. I watched the doubles on stream and she played well, she could poach more with her huge wing span, but her serve and return are very good and her volleys decent as well.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

This is a big tournament for Mirjana. But there will be a lot of tests to past. First Craybas, surely won't be easy.
Thane probably Burdette etc. Anyway I watched girls this week and Davis is playing bad, Coco is already out. And if Mirjana was facing any of these players in US Open R1 she would win 100% sure, but it's not as easy at this smaller tournaments. She will need to focus but this is surely THE YEAR.
And this could be THE TOURNAMENT. She needs a couple of wins, she's top 70 with her tennis at the moment, I'm sure.
And this is the part of the season where she would usually be losing to everybody.

Hmm, I smell something here.

I tend to agree. I like the way she has scheduled this month -- if she wins a couple but loses here she can get another chance in qualifying for Memphis and then a key main draw opportunity in Brazil.

All is takes is one good run and, wow, if anybody is "due" on the combined basis of extra-hard work, persistence, and natural talent, it's her. I have never seen her fitter, ever, and she must know she's playing well based on how close she came to winning the Down Under matches. The domination of Mueller was a good sign.

She has got to "bring it" and now is as good a time as any. If she could get that unique spark of being in reliable form AND super-fit every week ... it would be the first time she has combined those dynamics in her career. Not even in her teenage years was she playing well + tip-top fit. She has a chance to do that, now. A fine goal.

To my mind, if she gets back to the Top 100 soon she will make the key move she's been seeking. I think it is going to be launched by one very good result, rather than lots of "okay" results.

We'll see, but she certainly knows it is within her power to actually make it happen.

Roll, lady. Take some more scalps. Take these matches away from these girls if you want them.

And be ready to punish Craybas for the junk she's going to send your way tomorrow.
