Re: Mirjana's 2014 Summer Campaign

What a relief to see her win. Falconi is a gritty grinder who knows how to win matches, but apparently Mirjana's power was too much for her.

I'm glad.

After such a prolonged skid, she has got to be relieved and quite thrilled to get some wins on the board. Overcoming that hurdle against Pera was so crucial, obviously.

If she manages to qualify for this US Open, I see no reason why she should not play singles next year, too. If she can still work her way into Grand Slam main draws, it would be worth her while to play.

These have been good wins at the right time for her. Best of luck to her against Shapatava.

She should have no problems with Shapatava. Qualify !

Good Luck

Some tough names in there but as a whole those are probably the most winnable Q placements I've ever seen

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Summer Campaign

They'll show court 17. Some young American guy who I have never heard of his playing. Maybe if that match ends quickly, they'll show some of her match, but more likely they'll run a bunch of commercials and show the "stars" practicing.

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Summer Campaign

Of the 16 final round qualifying matches, Mirjana is the joint favourite with the bookmakers at 5/11. Only Pervak as the same odds . All the matches have fairly close odds but they rate those two the most likely to win through ! You can't even get 2/1 on any player !

Mirjana comes back from 25 in the third to beat Shapatava, 64 46 75! Second consecutive year she's qualified into the US Open main draw

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Summer Campaign

Amazing escape from Mirjana !

Mirjana = pure inconsistency. She makes life so difficult with bad UEs and shit serving

Tennis is such a mental game. And Mirjana`s experience helped her I think

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck
