Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Still recovering from doubles, I feel they could have done huge damage in this tournament. And if you look that Mirjana won Midland then in Memphis R1 lost to team that got to final, in Florianapolis R2 same thing, in IW again in R2 she faces a team that goes to final after beating Mirjana and her partner. Also, they were even with Hsieh and Peng that are among top doubles teams (last weak def. Errani/Vinci 62 63 and lost to Petrova Srebotnik, also in AOpen lost to Italians with a set won 60).
I have seen some clips from IW, Mirjana has improved in doubles A LOT. I just hope she gets some better result on WTA level soon.
She and Zheng would be hell of a team on grass, really.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Pretty good draw at Osprey. Sirotkina has played exactly one match on clay in the last twelve months. Hlavackova is not particularly good on clay. Mirjana owns Scholl in their previous mathes. Cadantu is overated ranking wise. I believe Johansson is legitimately tough on clay. In short, I think Mirjana should get at least to the QF.

Two weeks ago I would have shared your optimism but after that nightmare against Zhang I wouldn't be confident about her winning a set against anyone in the draw. Hopefully that was just a hangover from the Wickmayer loss and she'll be back to the player she was 3 weeks ago.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

I can't find any livescore links for this tournament. Bet365 isn't showing any nor the ITF site or flashscore.

Yea, I basically threw out the Zhang match and went with overall recent performance of her and potential opponents. I too hope the Zhang fiasco was an aberration.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Maybe she was just partying to much, after all she had great week in IW and it was her B-day, Plus, there are many things that can go wrong (even just for a day) with your health and so on. I'm very optimstic with the set and the half she and Zhen played in doubles. I mean, they were winning over 60% of points on return and 100% on second( you can't do that against a decent team without good game of ground and at the net) for a set and a half. I feel good about this tournament, and yes, I expect QF or SF.

Mirjana's 4 out of MD in Charleston. Can she again stay 1 out like last year in Wimbledon, Carlsbad, Dallas, Beijing(Q) and this year Memphis? Hope not because Q-draw will be strong.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Don't get why would anybody be so surprised. She's surely having better year than Hlavackova and Sirotkina, one tournament doesn't mean much.
Lets just see Andrea:
lost in Shenzen to Zakopalova 16 16, In Melbourne to Vekic 16 26, in Sydney to Cepelova 63 16 46, Paris to Fuerstein 36 46, Doha - Petrova 26 36, Memphis lost to Watson 62 06 36, Indian Wells lost to Kuza 16 36 and in Miami lost to Duval 67 46.
She only beat worst Pliskova and Oudin (in 3 sets!)

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Match is over by now or near end. It's a joke that Osprey has no livescore links anywhere. It's a 50k with a very good field for a 50k.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

she lost 6-2 6-1 according to the Osprey tennisforum page. Mark, you apparently were right on about your feelings about her form. I was wrong unfortuanetly
