Mirjana FTW! :rocker2:

May 7th, 2008, 08:50 PM
Hm, I think if all goes right, Jelena should win in 2. :)

Great match for a 25k. :)

May 7th, 2008, 08:51 PM
Dokic 6-4 6-3

May 7th, 2008, 08:52 PM
I think Dokic to win 6-3 6-1 mainly through Lucic's unforced errors

May 7th, 2008, 08:52 PM
I want Jelena to win but I feel like Mirjana will win.

May 7th, 2008, 08:52 PM

Awful Miki fan. :(

May 7th, 2008, 08:54 PM
Awful Miki fan. :(
I love Mirjana, but not like I do Jelena. :p

Dokic really should win, in all honesty. She's in better form.

May 7th, 2008, 09:01 PM
At end of 1999 Jelena Dokic (1983) like 16yo and Mirjana Lucic (1982) like 17yo is both TOP50 players and better ranked than #70 17yo Justine Henin (1982) for example. Today any of 16 or 17 old girls from 1991 and 1992 is not ranked in TOP200 :eek:.

And look what happen with this girls (not Henin) - they played at 25 (maybe best tennis years) some 25K tournament.

:eek: :eek: :tape: :tape:

May 7th, 2008, 09:03 PM
Jelena is in better form so she should win this in two sets!
GL Mirjana!

May 7th, 2008, 09:04 PM
Jelena I think.

May 7th, 2008, 09:04 PM
Dokic 6-3,6-3

May 7th, 2008, 09:05 PM
Mirjana today played unbeliveble tennis

May 7th, 2008, 09:05 PM
no jinx :sad:

May 7th, 2008, 09:05 PM
jelena won her match 6-1 6-2 so this matchup is official

May 7th, 2008, 09:06 PM
This is worthy of a WTA final. This is possibly the best ever match-up a QF of a 25K has seen. Dokic in 3.

May 7th, 2008, 09:07 PM
Dokic in two easy sets... 6-3 6-2 or so. ;)

May 7th, 2008, 09:07 PM
Jelena won 61 62

May 7th, 2008, 09:10 PM

May 7th, 2008, 09:11 PM
Jelena beat Haring 61 60
Lucic beat Haring 75 62

Jelena > Lucic :unsure:

May 7th, 2008, 09:13 PM
Miki in 3 :angel:

May 7th, 2008, 09:13 PM
Jelena in two i hope

May 7th, 2008, 09:13 PM
Jelena should win this match up!

May 7th, 2008, 09:14 PM
i guess a lot of people were hoping fot his one. ah, those nostalgic feelings ;)

May 7th, 2008, 09:27 PM
good luck mirjana!!!! (but my head says jelena)

Just Do It
May 7th, 2008, 09:31 PM
Oh I am praying Jelena will win this. I still cant believe they are actually playing against each other :unsure:

Migrate, are you going ?

May 7th, 2008, 09:48 PM
wow, what a match up

want mirjana to win but have a feeling jelena will win this one

May 7th, 2008, 09:59 PM
I like both of them but Mirjana looks stronger to me and I think and hope she'll win this in three.

May 7th, 2008, 10:06 PM
im going with jelena!! vamos! :)

May 7th, 2008, 10:14 PM
Why are people so obsessed with Mirjana?
I'm very happy with this draw, but only because I feel it's very easy for Jelena.
So Jelena 6:0,6:1:p

May 7th, 2008, 10:16 PM
Mirjana today played unbeliveble tennis

How does she play now ? same as before, standing in close for return of serve etc ? And does she lose points because she makes the errors ?

May 7th, 2008, 10:20 PM
Good luck Miki!!! But I think Jele will win!!!

May 7th, 2008, 10:33 PM
JD. Full stop.

May 7th, 2008, 10:37 PM
I think Dokic in 2.

May 7th, 2008, 11:14 PM
Dokic 6-1 7-5

May 7th, 2008, 11:20 PM
what a great match-up.

Hopefully Lucic will win this one, but I got a feeling Dokic will win instead

May 7th, 2008, 11:24 PM
I hope and think Jelena will win this in straight sets ... :D

May 7th, 2008, 11:29 PM
i agree, for a 25K this is an awesome QF match. The organizers of the event must be pleased with this.

Lucic is extremely talented, when she is on I truly think she can give anyone trouble because she stikes the ball soooo hard. She have Anna C some issues last year in the first set at Indian Wells. However, it seems she is unable to adapt her game when things are going wrong. She would be better to take some pace off her ball and cut down on the amount of errors she makes. Fitness wise, I think she def has an edge of Jelena. In all the pictures I have seen she looks very fit

Jelena has had more wins in fewer tourneys than Mirjana. Also, she has played better quality opponents this year than Mirjana. Her serve will really be an issue for this match. She needs to be more consistent with that if she wants to win. I worry about her being tired for the match because she has suddenly played a lot of matches in the last week and a half.

I think Dokic can take this in two...if it goes three than I am going with Mirjana because I think she is in better shape. Honestly though, I am rooting for both of them in their comeback bids so I will be happy either way...too bad this couldnt be for the final. They both could benefit confidence wise from winning an ITF i think.

May 7th, 2008, 11:35 PM
Go Mirjana!

Hopefully Mirjana!

May 8th, 2008, 12:06 AM
I want Dokic to win. Want it so bad!

May 8th, 2008, 12:14 AM
This would be a HUGE confidence booster for Jelena beating Mirjana

May 8th, 2008, 12:14 AM
Dokic 64 62

May 8th, 2008, 12:38 AM
Dokic 7-5 7-5

May 8th, 2008, 01:02 AM
Dokic in two sets with one of the sets being tight.:D

This match won't happen until friday though, right?

May 8th, 2008, 01:04 AM
LOL! I would love to see this match live. I think Dokic will take it in two sets.

May 8th, 2008, 01:10 AM

May 8th, 2008, 01:13 AM
This match is more interesting than any match in Berlin.

May 8th, 2008, 01:57 AM
My heart says Dokic, but my head says Dokic. So Dokic :D

In 2 sets, the first closer than the second.

May 8th, 2008, 04:58 AM
Jelena Dokic to win ... i hope...

May 8th, 2008, 05:09 AM
Too bad this isn't the final. :sad:

I don't know why, but I think Mirjana will take this, (Come on Mirjana!)
I will be happy for either of them though, especially if the winner of this match can take the tournament. :angel:

May 8th, 2008, 05:30 AM
the winner better take the title :p
i'm just really happy mirjana beat two decent players back to back. her form is definately improving and this should give her confidence.
jelena's been really solid this week with the exception of the first set she played

Jelena, no question.

May 8th, 2008, 08:56 AM
Whoa! What a match-up :D Ajde, Jelena! :kiss:

May 8th, 2008, 09:04 AM
Dokic easily. Like 6-2 6-1.

May 8th, 2008, 09:14 AM
Lucic was amazing before her meltdown in the second round of qualies in Charleston, the only time I've ever seen her play. I'm even less familiar with Dokic, but I dunno. I think Lucic will beat her, but if she has a lapse, and she probably will, Dokic will take advantage. Both could be top 100 players again, though.

This is their first ever meeting. I still laugh at Dokic/Stevenson playing first round Wimbledon qualies seven years after their quarterfinal. Weird how these three all end up together somehow.

May 8th, 2008, 09:24 AM
I dunno who will win but it's good to see both playing again.Maybe Dokic will emerge the winner but hard to tell.

May 8th, 2008, 09:35 AM
Have fun girls...love both of you!!!!!!!!!Just want to see Mirjana and Jelena Back on the main circuitThey could be so great for the grass and indoor seasonDokic in two...

May 8th, 2008, 10:44 AM
I saw both hitting very well in Florence this week. Jelena is phisically a bit down sometimes...not so fast and not too much ok in defence..but in some occasions she really seems Jeca of 2000! Mentally Mirjana seems better but she has often her pause..3-4 consecutive games with df and many errors. In the match against Haring she was down 1-5 in first set then she hitted only winners and aces(12). So I think it will be a mental match mainly

Jelena in 2 (hopefully). Come on JD:bounce::bounce::bounce:!
