Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

If I'm not mistaken, Mirjana has a small chance to become the top-ranked Croat next week

Yes, there is a chance, if Mirjana takes out Li, and Vekic doesn't take the title in Turkey. There's Martic in the mix as well, who can become again our #1 if Vekic fails to win the title and Martic reaches the final in Morrocco. Or to put it in numbers:

- Vekic defending 35 points, maximum to win 70, currently at 780
- Mirjana defending 0, already at 80, could win 140 with another win, currently at 661 (without the 80 added)
- Martic defending 0, 280 in case of a title/200 for a final/130 for SF, currently at 679

That is, if all my assumptions are correct.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

She seemed very mature and philosophical in the interview. It appears she's relaxed and at the present time not putting too much pressure on herself. Good to hear. As for being the highest ranking Croatian, She may not technically be the highest right now, but I think she is playing in the hardest tournaments and against the best opponents of the lot. Vekic is higher ranked, but most of that is based on one tournament last year. Martic hasn't been playing well.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Amazing 6-0 6-4 win over Vesnina, Mirjana !

Very happy for Mirjana. Great performance. Such an important win. Nothing to lose in R2 against Top 5 player Li who is huge favourite. Stuttgart already has been a success for Mirjana no matter what happens now.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

And what better place to enjoy her tennis this much than her homeland - the Croat was actually born in Dortmund, Germany.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

I sure hope this turns into a good news for our pair, although both Craybas and Moulton-Levy are very active on the doubles circuit and are not harmless. It'll sure be an interesting day tomorrow

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

If they win they have big chance for final, but I see germans as favorites.

Just read on Li thread that she might wd to go to China, but I doubt that since she's on tomorrrows OOP.
Anyway, not sure I would like Mirjana to play Muguruza either but we will see..
