Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign
I watch this tape of Graf and lucic you posted but respectfully I don't see a difference from then to today . ;mistake, mistake, mistake, mistake, big winner. ;mistake, mistake, mistake,,mistake,mbigmwinner. Maybe then she has the bit of confidence that comes being young, that extra bit. I see that. Maybe she doesn't doubt herself,then, as much. She <Mirjana> reminds me so much of Mary Pierce. That big flat attack. But Mary knew to play points better, mostly. I saw that match of mirjana against Lucie on stream and Mirjana did pretty good except for bad choices on important points. Maybe she could get away with bad choices more as a kid but not now. I see no difference at all. Same amount of really uninspired net play and bad drop shots and lobs too. But it's wrong to insult her because the win over Oprandi on that surface was really very good and look didn't she beat Voglele who is in form and getting to semi finals in Mexico? I don't know if lucic has any coaches or help but it could be worse. I like Lucie so I saw that match but it also reminded me how nice it wasmtomsee Lucic on the courts in important tournaments again. Yes her story is inspiring. But her tennis, to me, seems more a case of really stupid or bad tactics and shot choices than lack of talent. anyone can see she has talent. I think she's been making some noise lately. hey you don't just beat Romina on clay for no reason. And she did good against lucie in australia and i think Lucie killed her same event last year in charleston totally killed her so, I thought she put some big games out there in that first set. To me it was just dumb choices on points that should have played themselves. You can tell lucic thinks she should be making these shots like a champion and they should be going in. But then they don't. She needs a coach to my opinion. Just great to see her name and game in matches these days honestly.
