Re: Marija Mirkovic

Great work so far this week by Marija. Obviously the chance to play people like de los Rios and Gallovits did her a lot of good for Australian Open qualifying where she has scored two of the best victories of her career.

Don't expect her to come close to beating Date Krumm, but good luck all the same

Re: Marija Mirkovic

Just to update this thread,
Marija made the final round of qualifying at the Australian Open, upsetting Margalita Chakhnashvili 4-6 6-4 6-4 in the opening round. She then scored arguably the best win of her career, a 6-3 6-4 trouncing of Raluca Olaru who (I think) was seeded 16th.
Unfortunately she lost in the final round to Kimiko Date-Krumm 7-5 6-1. Still, a great effort from Marija and obviously her experience over the previous few weeks held her in good stead.

Since then, Marija has scored a couple of good wins but suffered a few pretty average losses. I think that that can be expected considering her expectations have probably soared...

She is now on the verge of cracking the top 300. Hopefully, with a solid season, she can end the year close to or inside the top 250, and get her first Australian Open main draw wildcard next year

Ajde Marija

Re: Marija Mirkovic

I will be happy if Marija ends the year at around 220, she is becoming solid at these itfs and im expecting her to play some larger tournaments and have sucess with them.

Re: Marija Mirkovic

Marija is down to play a 25k in Jersey, GBR in a couple of weeks time. She should make the main draw directly, and would then have a good shot at getting some points and jumping into the top 300. She doesn't have ANY points to defend until July, so unless she goes on an '07 post Aussie Open losing streak, the top 300 is inevitable.

Good luck

Re: !!Marija Mirkovic!!

Good luck, Marija! From vids I've seen, she's such a sweet girl. Would love to see her reach new highs this year.

Re: Marija Mirkovic

Marija is once again close to achieving a top 300 ranking. After reaching the second round of the Sydney 25k, Marija has jumped from No.321 to No.312, becoming the No.7 ranked Australian woman.

Congratulations

As mentioned earlier, she is playing the Jersey 25k this week, good luck

$75,000 Monzón (ESP) 2009 Qualifying Draw

Leticia Costas-Moreira (ESP) v (wc)Carmen Borau-Ramos (ESP)

Ines Ferrer-Suarez (ESP) v Karen Barbat (DEN)

Not sure if she has to win one or two matches to get into the main draw. Good luck Marija, would be a fantastic effort to qualify.

Re: Marija Mirkovic

Marija seems the quiet achiever amongst the group of up and comers. Unlike most of them that hugged Australia as close to their bosoms as they possibly could last year, Marija could be seen plugging away in Europe at all kinds of Challengers. That tells me she may actually make more of a go of the game than most of them. Hope she manages to qualify this tourney and go deep. Once she cracks top 300, top 250 is not that far away.

BTW does anyone know why she withdrew from Jersey last week? I'm hoping it wasn't injury.
