Re: Mirjana's 2013 Down Under swing
A lot of the seeded doubles teams have already fallen to smart player combos already (Can Kimiko Date-Krumm blow our minds any further? Unreal, that woman.) and if Mirjana and JJ have more chance to find their groove as a pair, the talent is surely there. If they have an inspired day ... Who knows? At least they both are still in Oz, playing on the Grand Slam Stage, fighting for a win. Hope they have fun and go for it.
Looks like Mirjana's first chance to win a singles match will come indoors at the $100K in Michigan starting 4 February. She is seeded #8 there. After that, she is 2nd or 3rd ALT for Memphis. Really hope she can catch fire at one or both of those events. This incredibly hard work is going to pay-off for her. She deserves it. One event can change everything and I do still believe she has come out with her strongest play (for season-opening) considering the competition -- an obviously determined Cepelova and a Top 20 lefty like Safarova.
Do your best, Mirjana. Enjoy your adventure.
