I don't blame you for thinking that. She whipped Yanina. Miki is always going to be someone who can beat anyone or lose to anyone, especially on grass.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Kind of disappointing. But, she got five singles matches in for her preparation for Wimbledon. If she can bring the form she had early in the Birmingham tournament to Wimbledon she can do well there. Hopefully, she can get a few doubles matches in at Eastbourne, althought it seems she has a tough first round draw there.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

lucic preparation for W much better than JJbut still Dabroski get killed by Jamie today which great for Jamie but makes lucic bad performance v the Canadian more scary. Hopeful her coach or whoever get her head back on right for wimbledon because it look like 200 point to defend. Hate to see lucic spin so far from Topm100 after so many good wins this year. but seems lucic wins at the times not so important and loses when counts most. How else to explain low rank for such talented hitter. Maybe she mental after break up 3rd set Sabine but she should be thrilled: beat Yanina and Pliskova and almost recent Wimbke semifinalist which is sabine! Hope she get draw good enough to go two rounds at the least of it.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Why doesn't she double fault as much in doubles? She should stand further over in the court to serve in singles too.

With a good Wimbledon draw, it's possible she can make at least the 3rd Rd. It's possible, even probable she'd have to play a seed in the 2nd round, like last year. She's getting enough grass match preparation, hopefully she'll be mentally tough at Wimbledon, like she was last year. She needs to NOT think about all the pts. she has to defend. I'm sure her coach is mindful to try get her into the right mental frame of mind.

Maybe because she doesn't serve as often so she can focus more when her time to serve comes. As somebody who played tennis on ''high'' level(both singles and doubles) I think it can have affect on you.

If Miki can get her doubles rank up the team might be seeded at the US Open.

This really nice I was thinking no way against petra but lucic showing she is one of worlds top double players for sure getting up wins almost every tournament now. Is good too because when she does disappointment loss like against dabrowski then wins with doubles like she had shit match with Varva at Paris but good doubles play w JJ then played good in Birmingham. A win will hopeful to give her back the confident mind for Wimbledon. Oh she needs decent draw Wimbledon. No Serena or Marsha or anybody seeded in round 1. and can't wait to see her and JJ again together on grass this time!

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

sheesh Yanina beating on Petra now & jamie in qf you have to think lucic feel good for her chance do damage in wimbledon. I know not fair to ask but if only she had beat sabine not fair I know but it seem like lucic such confidence type player more than others. Maybe she get down on herself too easy & dwell on loss which make her play so bad against pp like dabrowski after having 3-0 lead and even winning second set. Draw gonna be everything for lucic at wimbldeon. Need one clean kill first round and maybe chance for upsets in 2nd rd or more. Gonna be scary but don't see how person could not wish best for her. JJ better come ready to make the noise too

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

That's a great draw she has at Wimbledon. Arvidsson has only ever won 1 match there against Perebiynis in 2005. Mirjana Just has to dump the Dabrowski match out of her mind as this is a great draw for much needed points ! 100 for this and only 30 for beating Wickmaier and Pliskova !
