Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

At least she has beaten both Lepchenko and Oprandi before. I'm afraid the lack of match play may hurt her, but on the other hand, she should be pretty fresh. ESPN seems to like Lepchenko because she is a naturalized American and plays Fed Cup for the U.S., so ESPN will probably televise all or at least part of this match.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Varvara lose tough one to Kanepi just today 7/6 third. Lucic will have to fight like crazy beat vavra in Roland Garos. Unless Varvara have a bad day or lucic play like Stutgartt anything possible in grand slam with nerves. Then oprandi who I can't stand is probably next for the one who wins. She in semifinal too in Brussels! weird this Mirjana's draw.

Strange. A seeded, in-form American and no streaming I know Lepchenko is not hugely popular as some of the other girls, but still...

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

lucic fans. Optimism much? tough breaks in double draw but JJ and Lucic have some tricks too. Dumb to put seed like Varvara on ct.4 w no stream. Varva has good story like lucic but I guess not enough "American" name. Saw bit of match at end w Kanepi. Kanepi hits the balls hard like lucic and varva choked this match a bit. But varva was on defensive whole match. Lucic need to hit the good backhand all day and fight. I be happy whoever wins.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

ESPN is capable of putting a camera on non-show courts so they may show some of this match on ESPN. ESPN seems to try to show her matches. But outside of U.S. it may not possible to see.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

i seriously doubt they'll do it though. even when they get a camera crew out there, it's usually at an awkward angle and for a few points only

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Really looking forward to the match. Although it'll be a tough one we have to keep in mind that she almost always brings the best of her game to the slams and has done some bigger upsets on majors in recent years. So of course, Varvara is a clear favorite on paper, but a win by Miki here wouldn't be the most shocking thing the world has ever seen.

Good luck Mirjana (and watch how you screw your head on today - sorry couldn't resist)!

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Wtf?good thing no stream on this match. stats awful for lucic. How to perform such bad bad tennis at grand slam. Varv stats nothing special today. I'm glad she wins but does lucic even prepare for match such as this. No fight less than hour? Maybe she don't have a coach anymore or whatever. She play like this in grass it better to retire singles play doubles career. Sorry for lucic fans.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

oh jus saw with oprandi knocked out too! what chances lost! But with this tennis lucic could not beat anyone so doesn't matter. Maybe win the doubles few matches. Hope JJ don't dump her.
