Really bad loss on red clay. Nothing more or less to say about it. Good luck in doubles.

Re: Mirjana's Campaign to Conquer Clay in 2014!

From Riske's post-match (courtesy of ESPN):

Riske, a 24-year-old who was born in Pittsburgh and lives in Atlanta, lost four of the first five games against Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, a native German who lives in Florida but plays under the flag of Croatia. And then Riske won 12 of the remaining 17 games to collect a tidy 7-6 (2), 6-3 victory.

"I felt like I got off to a little bit of a slow start," Riske said later, "but that wasn't really helped by the fact she didn't miss a ball. She was playing really well. I figured if I weathered the storm I would have my opportunities and that's kind of how it unfolded. I definitely ended it better than I started it.

"I had to be aggressive and had to go for it. Otherwise she was going to take it to me. I had to step up aggressively."

Mirjana Lucic nakon poraza u prvom kolu

- Krenula sam jako dobro, imala dvije lopte za vodstvo od 5:1 u prvom setu, nakon toga odigrala sam dva lošija gema, ona se vratila u meč i sve je krenulo naopako. Servirala je odlično i više mi nije dala priliku za povratak. Užasno sam razočarana, prošlog sam tjedna igrala jako dobro u Strasbourgu, a onda mi se dogodi ovo ...
I started very good, had 2 game points for 5:1 lead in first set, after that I played 2 bad games and she come back and all started going downhill. Her serve was amazing so she really didn't give me any chance for comeback. I'm really disappointed, last week I played very good in Strasbourg and now this happens....

sorry, my english is not very very good So Riske's serve was key in this match (and Mirjana's head of course)
