Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Woof! Barring any potential last-minute draw revisions, the four qualifiers for the main event have immediate difficulties to overcome: seeds # 2 (Arvidsson), 3 (Lisicki), and 5 (Hradecka) are all slated to play qualifiers. Tsurenko is the fourth main draw entrant slated to meet a qually-babe.

Clearly hoping Mirjana qualifies AND draws Tsurenko. Then again, thinking of Hradecka, has Mirjana EVER lost to a player who hits two-handed off both wings? Trivia question of the day.

In any case, looking at the main draw is looking WAY too far ahead right now.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

She should beat Sesil, especially if Sesil serves up as many DF's as she did in Cali. She hit roughly 60 dfs in only three matches.

Sesil's DOUBLE- FAULT ASTEROID-BOMBS of HORROR! (should be a headline)

24 DFS while beating Dubois in 3.
15 DFS while beating Cadantu in 3.
20 DFS while losing to Castano in 3.

Total number of aces Sesil landed in all three matches?

3

Oh, Mirjana. Gotta win.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Sesil is a shadow of the player she once was.
I watched 2 of her matches in Cali and she was horrendous. So many DFs and no pace on her shots. She doesn't make a lot of mistakes though....

But on fast indoor, she'll have less time for her shots especially against Mirjana.

I'm confident Mirjana will win in 2

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

so far mirjana has served 2 double faults and lost the opening game. It can only go uphill from here.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Mirjana blowing all BPs thus far (4, to be exact). Not encouraging ...

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

I think its going to be a breakfest. Neither one seems to be serving well and they both DF quite a bit.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

AND the DF Gremlin arrives at last ... Sesil flops her 5th to even things up at 3-3.

Now, as a tennis player, one would have to sort of presume that such a costly DF might start getting into Sesil's head, given the 59 DFs she has tossed like stink-bombs in her previous three matches.

Come, come, Mirjana. Do not toy with this girl. Foot on the gas and put her out of her misery.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

And Mirjana gets broken AGAIN. I just don't understand her. Truly.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

If they had a stat for highest frequency of being broken first service game after breaking serve, I fear Mirjana would be high on the list.

Yeah, she's going to have a lot of chances to break but she needs to at least hold the games right after breaking.
