Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

glad she pulled that match out. I only followed from 3-3 in the final set so my Blood pressure is okay. When she didn't get the MP at 5-4* I was worried but she held it together. Always good to see the pusher BZS lose, especially to a favorite of mine. As for the next match, Meusberger is a crafty pusher but not as good as BZS, at least a BZS who is sharp. I would venture to say BZS was probably rusty today, but I don't care, a win in a tight match is always good especially for confidence. I think Meusberger will present problems with her junk but Miki can possibly overpower her in these indoor conditions. I hope that is what happens tomorrow.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Great win for confidence, but since this was first Barbora's match after 6 month break because of ban, I hope it could be more convinced! Well, I think Miki is obvious favorite against Meusberger and that Miki despite her game style, actually feels very good on clay. Good luck!

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Not that I expect Lucic to make it, but the Q placements are wicked: Petrova, Lisicki, Wickmayer, Vesnina

Any opponent can be tough because of the way she plays, but Meusberger has only 30 points so far this year and is 325th in the race, hasn't made a grand slam draw since 2010 and lost to Kerkhove (No.386) a few weeks ago in straight sets.

Mirjana started badly yesterday but the double faults kept away and her fight in the final set was great. At 1-1 0-40 I expected her to lose the final set 1-6 or 2-6 and then at 5-5- 0-15 I thought it was slipping away again.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Safarova, Vinci, Stosur and Errani are all in MD and still plying Fed Cup. I guess somebody could pull out, so even if Mirjana doesn't beat Peer she has some chances to get in MD. Let's hope she'll beat her

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Lucic wins 6-3, 6-1. unexpected, as Peer has been slowly getting back to form
