Re: Marija Mirkovic

I hope she gets a few MD wins at these ITF's in Europe, I'd actually love her to get the French Open MDWC. Atleast she made the effort to get over there in the conditions and hit it out with these girls.

Unless Rogowska or Holland have lots of success in these 2 x $25K's in Australia, my bet is on Mirkovic.

Re: Marija Mirkovic

Don't mean to sound frank or blunt, but what is with the sudden interest in Marija?
Has she really done enough to warrant the French Open wildcard, or are people just saying she should get it because she is the only one playing at the moment?
Just let me point out that Marija is NOT in the TA hopeful squad for 2009, the AIS. Do you honestly think that TA would wish to give a non-AIS athlete a wildcard into an international Grand Slam? It is a ludicrious idea (from TA's perspective).

That said, one of the country's better prospects not in the AIS???

Re: Marija Mirkovic

Is the interest really that sudden?

I mean she did great at AO in the qualies, and she's actually making an effort to play overseas now.

People are interested because she's the only one playing right now. I thought that was pretty obvious.

I think she's already been guaranteed the French Open MDWC, hence why she's over in Europe on the clay.

Re: Marija Mirkovic

lol i dont think theres a hope in hell that marija will get the wildcard... i wouldnt mind her getting it, but i think theres no chance TA will give it to her over the likes of moore, holland, wejnert or rogowska...

dellacqua • dokic • groth • molik • stosur
holland • mirkovic • moore • rogowska • wejnert
clijsters • hantuchova • jankovic • sharapova • venus

Re: Marija Mirkovic

Mirkovic won't get the wild card I would like her to get it though, would be fantastic for her.

Anyway, if any Australian was overseas and winning matches against some tougher competition they would be talked about as well.

Good for Marija to be getting talked about though, I think her going over to Europe shows how serious she actually is about her career. Expecting her to crack the top 300 soon

Re: Marija Mirkovic

Live scoring might be showing a bit too much interest in her though (joking Oztennis)

4-6 *2-1
