Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Wish Mirjana decided to play some challengers. Those 25k's in Europe in July look extra week(I'm sure she could win any) and that's juicy 50 points. And maybe to mix it with two 100k's in France and Olomouc that also look very weak.
Playing Palermo adn Bad Gastein might be very risky because she can always draw a seed in first round(but Mirjana's also close to being seeded in Palermo on the other hand).

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

BTW, Mirjana has earned around 58 000$ just for one singles win. If she def. Suarez Navarro she would earned around 98 000$
This makes me even more sad for her.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

[QUOTE=KingOfSwing;30133969]I did not get to see first set must have been something but lucic look like mental she went on a strol in the sets 2,3. What the other one said about SF no joke because lets face it this match was lucic to win and now ivanlvic gone, Vika gone, Kvitova look terrible what can you say. Lucic can never ever say she the draw was unlucky for her or never give her big chance again. Yes her level go down in match when it goes bad but her head is reason. She try different plans like three dropshots there but mostly look like she lose all belief she can win. Plus side she got one win here but don't think she gonna be too thrilled when she must know she was almost the big dark horse of this whole womens Wimbledon. Win this match she was in QF or Sf or maybe even final (if Masha loses to awful de burrito). Lucic best thing should think doubles run maybe trophy and try finish year in top 100 get to quarterfinal so,e where. Make $$$$. She seem such nice girl and so talent. Look at her stats past few years she wastee too much playing tour qual matches that give no points when she should play good challengers to bring the ranking up and have less need to get stuck in wta qual. And no doubles mostly for these years when she got the talent? Look to me like she thought hey anyway now I gonna win big event but not likely now. Great wins this year onnvoegele Yanina vesnina pliskova oprandi arvidsson strycovah and players who give her trouble is good but no gains made when she has to come through qualify. Look to me like mix of bad choices planning keep lucic from breakout she could have. God de Brito serving for match Masha. Gonna be sick[/QUOTE

Go to espn.com and click on espn3. they have archived matches from yesterday. You can watch the Lucic match. You say you missed the first set. It's worth checking it out. Just turn it off at 1-2 in the second set. LOL.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

^ah thx will do that really want to see how good she play Carla firs set. Surprise happy JJ & Mirjana lucic win doubles match turnaround. More money for lucic and defend double points maybe she can get to world top 50 doubles with one more win. Might be nice to motivate her. Lot of guts to win double today when you know JJ and lucic both feel to jump off cliff for losing sweet chances. JJ have perfect time to get back top 10 wta and blow it to Dolonc. Lucic maybe way it been up and down these days happy to get one MD win and play amazing set. But don't matter the ranking they both star quality my opinion

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

R2 is already not easy at all, and in R3 probably Vesnina and Makarova.
I wish they were here or in Paris in section with Kope/Spears, Gro/Peschke, Hradecka/Hlavackova or some team like that...

Suarez-Bouchard 75 62
Carla earns 280 ranking points and 160 000$(!) at least

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

^oh lucic could to have been you instead. Even though lucic only net 80 point by get final 16 cuz she defending 220 to achieve this would be highlight of comeback and good chance i think to beat Petra who beating makarova right now. Well can't cry over the milk. Doubles and more events for,lucic this year. Maybe one of them be the one she goes all the way. Win few rounds at us open maybe.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

I still have a horrible feeling Suarez-Navarro is going to make the final. Good luck to her anyway.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

For me, it doesn't matter if she makes it or not. I'm quite sure Lucic would have made it had she won that match. Just if Suarez didn't get that backhand down the line in 8th game.
And money and points Mirjana would got would totally change the rest of her career.

I will never forget this chance. This was Mirjana's year to do what Ivanisevic did in 2001.

Re: Mirjana's spring 2013 campaign

Let's not forget that Mirjana's game is way too unpredictable to be sure of anything. No one can say that, had she won this match, she would've won the next one - you can't know that for the next set when it comes to MikiLu, let alone the next match

I will never forget this chance. This was Mirjana's year to do what Ivanisevic did in 2001.
yeah that one pt. still haunts me. Watch it again, she had at least two chances to come to the net after running Suarez around the court before Suarez hit that backhand, still that backhand is like a one in ten shot of going in. It was a highlight reel type backhand. Also, don't forget Lucic had game pt earlier in the game and double faulted.

I think the doubles match today will be very competitive. Flipkin's ranking is low right now, but I know she has been ranked high in doubles in the past. I know she's a good volleyer, and Rybarkova is good on grass too, I don't know much about her doubles history. In grand slam doubles, ranking doesn't always mean much. A lot of skilled players can pull upsets.
