Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Yes, a girl that plays game that shouldn't suit Mirjana.
No expectations at all. I was hoping for an American just to watch her play.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Mirjana reached the second round as a qualifier last year, so she'll actually lose points if she doesn't make the third round.

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Ironically, on the heels of her latest two dismal performances, Mirjana finally breaks back into the top 100

Sadly, since she's defending a bunch of points, I don't expect her to be there next week.

Let's hope she finds some accuracy and some serving this week.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Hoped she would be in doubles draw. You never know, some win in doubles might giver her confidence. But I guess her ranking was to low if she signed in.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Poor Mirjana. Relegated to Court 4 tomorrow. Only two matches on that court and the other one is a doubles match. All other singles matches are on courts 1-3.

She gets no respect

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Can Mirjana end the WTA year in the top 100?

She was close the previous three years but didn't quite make it:
2012: 108
2011: 116
2010: 105

In terms of ranking points, this year Mirjana is just ahead of 2012 and well ahead of 2011 and 2010:

2013 ... 171 points
Sydney ... 1
Australian Open ... 5
Midland ... 36
Memphis ... 6
Florianopolis ... 1
Indian Wells ... 80
Miami ... 1
Osprey ... 1
Charleston ... 40

2012 ... 162 points
Brisbane ... 1
Sydney ... 8
Australian Open ... 40
Midland ... 18
Memphis ... 1
Indian Wells ... 1
Nassau ... 20
Miami ... 20
Osprey ... 1
Charleston ... 52

2011 ... 35 points
Auckland ... 6
Sydney ... 1
Australian Open ... 5
Indian Wells ... 20
Nassau ... 1
Miami ... 1
Charleston ... 1

2010 ... 82 points
Plantation ... 8
Lutz ... 8
Rancho Mirage ... 8
Clearwater ... 0
Fort Walton Beach ... 0
Pelham ... 8
Jackson ... 50

But her biggest problem will be the Wimbledon points, 220 of them. It doesn't look like she will have to qualify and a bad draw at Eastbourne and a bad first round draw at Wimbledon could see her drop to around 140 so she needs to try and pick up some wins before then.

All very true. She'll have lots of chances to gain points over the next three months. Until Wimbledon she's defending 111 points. One MD win at the French Open would just about cover it. Will Mirjana take advantage of those chances...?

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Mirjana rarely seems to find any good tennis against top players, and also they play better than expected.
Safarova lost to Oprandi in Miami
Also, objecitive reporter said MIrjana-Lucie was best R1 in Melbourne and that Safarova was playing not nearly as good in R2.
I mean, Jovanovski made it to R4 and he said she was not as good as miki.
She needs to make something big. She was close in Wimbledon, will never forget that baad call she she should have broke for 2nd set.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Ii do not. Tj the way she played she would lose to any solid player. She should try this level and play more doubles. Draw in mexiico is.so weak. And for one win she would get same points as for taking a title at 50k
