Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign
You know Miki just shook her head and laughed the minute she first saw that draw, and probably made a wisecrack like "Woe to me" or something like that. She's a girl with a sense of humor.
This can be viewed a few different ways, I guess. She isn't having luck against the Burdettes and Cepelovas of the world, so why not try her hand against a legend.
Also, one of the reasons Mirjana has been working so hard to make this career fly on tour is for chances like this -- to play the big girls. Not in the first round, I realize, but she hasn't played a Williams since her comeback in 07, so I'm glad she'll get a chance to take the court against one of them again. Could be her last chance, and it's something she will want to remember.
I highly doubt we'll see a win, but nothing is impossible, I suppose. And we will get to see the livestream. Hope the real Miki shows up.
As for dubs ... Czink may have promised to play with Niculescu beforehand. I hope they can make it a friendly, entertaining contest.
GL to Mirjana and her long-suffering admirers.
