Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign
Aw, sh$t. I was playing tennis myself this morning and could not follow the scores (no phones allowed :-(
The stats tell us this match was not winnable because her first serve was a wreck. I'm glad she made such an obvious impression off the ground in that first set. Bummer. Even when she (presumably) took off the pace and landed more 1st serves in the third set, she made even less of an impact, but by that time it appears Wickmayer had gotten her number in terms of exploiting Miki's wonky service production.
Disappointed for Miki. This was clearly winnable if she had been having a strong day on serve. But, woulda coulda shoulda.
Doesn't matter now. She had a VERY admirable week of singles success at one of the biggest events on the globe, made oodles of cash, is still in the doubles, knows she belongs in all these main draws AND ... gets to try her hand at it all over again next week with Miami qualifying!
I gotta believe she's feeling a lot more eager to hit Miami than she was the last two years.
Hope she does something special for her birthday tonight. Go to Old Town LaQuinta, Miki. Have a margarita at the Hog's Breath ... But only one!
