transitioning to more emphasis in doubles.
This could very well be true, of course.
But Her absence from the Paris Q-List might indicate that she is being economic, too. To play qualifying, she would have to arrive at the site days ahead of her doubles partner, who is obviously not playing singles at all, and stay on into the beginning of the subsequent week to await her first doubles match, win or lose. Paris is lovely, but it's more expensive to stay there than ever. It may not make financial sense for Mirjana to play both the qualifying event and the main draw doubles event, with coach in-tow and the whole works.
That being said, I hope she doesn't transition to a role as "doubles specialist" too quickly. While she's capable of staying near the Top 100 and making the main draw at Grand Slam events, I hope she still devotes a lot of energy to singles, using doubles to make that crucial extra money. Last year was so great for her career, making over $300,000 like she did. I think she finished in the Top 80 for prize-money; that puts her in the category of women pros who are actually able to make a nice, respectable financial profit from tennis. As someone else said before, though (might have been Ajmo) she will probably have some atypical adjustments in her schedule for as long as she's committed to Anna-Lena's doubles plans, and vice versa.
We'll have to see how the partnership works out. I hope it does. Anyway, here's hoping for a great Oz Open draw all the way around. I think she could win a singles match -- maybe even two. How great that would be.
