Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Miki must be excited with her first-round opponent.

She's 2-0 against Vesnina, including on clay!

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

I sure hope they have a livestream. I didn't expect a matchup with Vesnina to be on the main court. That's a pleasant surprise.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

A lot of players are still playing FC today and I guess they need extra rest, plus main star have bye in R1 and thing clicked.
And yes, there will be a livestream.

Win tomorrow could bring top90 next week.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

great! I'm liking the Vesnina matchup. Mijana is 2 and 0 against her. Vesnina has not played on clay this year. The Fed Cup tie with Japan was on Indoor hard. Vesnina lost her singles match to Morita. She did win the decider which was a doubles match. Finally, we can hope Vesnina downed a liberal amount of Russian Vodka with her team in a late night celebration and will be hung over after the flight from Moscow. Lol.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

She played Morita in February.
This week she played FC on indoor clay against Slovakia.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

At least she didn't get Petrova. Phew...

Regardless, it's already a good week for Mirjana, with three wins against some tough opponents. It's a meager 20 ranking points but she'll get almost 5,000 euros for her efforts.

Still, a win tomorrow would be phenomenal. She has been ranked ~100 for so long, and so many times she has needed just one more win for a rankings break-through, and hasn't been able to do it.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

I hope good Mirjana shows up tomorrow. First match of the tournament, all eyes on Mirjana.. She has the game to beat Vesnina, but Elena is much like Mirjana-hot and cold. But she has more consistency, and less power. it will be interesting

Thought it was worth updating this...

Well done Mirjana! Elena could be tricky though, she's been in decent form so far this year.
