He then said that since she is ranked 118 in singles, she must not have much confidence, as if your singles ranking has anything to do with your standing in doubles. By his rationale, Strebotnik would have no confidence and would suck at doubles. LOL.
I kind of agree with him, from the standpoint that she is primarily a singles player who has a modest ranking. She isn't confident and although she has had some good doubles results I don't think she will ever be a great doubles player like Srebotnik. Miki can't stand there and hit 10 crosscourt forehands without making an error, and it's harder for her to hit an outright winner in doubles. I do enjoy seeing her doubles success with JJ because the prize money helps extend her career and she does more match practice in doubles when she loses early in singles.

saw fichman play at U.S. Open qualifying. Total backboard. But, Mirjana should be able to hit through her on the pretty fast indoor courts of Quebec City. Safarova against Lucic indoors would be very interesting.

fichman dos not grunt no scream but puts out long moan OOOHhhhng! on her moonballs like goat with the fever. no idea what lucic will be able to do with sharon. Like usual everying depend on lucic bring some actual game to court. Draws good draws bad draws dont mean nothing no more we all saw that with us open wimbledon. Just can lucic bring the brain to this matches. Good chance top 100 next few weeks if she controls her bad shot decisions little bit.

Re: Mirjana's summer 2013 campaign

Would love to see Mirjana play doubles at smaller tournaments.
Hope she could maybe pair up with some good player like Safarova/Mladenovic/Mattek...

Re: Mirjana's summer 2013 campaign

Fichman will up her usual 24 ball bounce to 36 before serving. I watched her recent match against Date-Krumm and all she did was slow the game down and argue and complain about everything, trying to intimidate line judges and the umpire. Instantly unlikeable .

wont be able slow down lucic forehand if mirjana playing good tennis. Fichman very squat girl w no chin and angry with life. lucic tall blond sexiness will piss her off so she bounce 40 times the balls before serve and hit all groundstroke as lobs every one of them. Fichman wta pic nice though: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Troll-Doll-4...-/271273355866

An Ajla-Mirjana team would have been perfect.

Mirjana up to #36 in doubles this week. She's now the top Croatian doubles player.
