I'm thinking lots of errors from Mirjana?

Still a straight set win, not exactly what I call a squeak :p

Glad to see her back on court, I hoped for a more ideal start to 2011 so really any win right now is reason to be pleased thus far

well, to be fair, she hasn't played in a while and sanchez is the ncaa indoor champ
that said, that was a rough, rough match :o

She also lost her last pro match 6-0 6-1 to Julie Ditty :help: I'm glad Mirjana took advantage of the best draw she could have had, but this should have been a lot easier. It's her first match in over a month though, so hopefully she starts to get better with more matches.

Good point. It's probably fair to say that Sanchez's ranking doesn't reflect her playing level.

She also lost her last pro match 6-0 6-1 to Julie Ditty :help:

I noticed that too. I'm glad Mirjana drew Sanchez because I fear that today she would have lost to everyone else in the quali draw!

USC Maria Sanchez?? College girls do not hit with the pace and power the pros do...

Could/should have been easier though I've never seen Sanchez play but 5 & 3 is hardly squeaking through.

First match in 2 months plus a windy day spells an erratic day for anyone.

Seems like Lucic's tennis improved a lot from 7-5 0-2 0-30. Sanchez had a set point in the first set at 5-4 40-30

What is with the perception of thread starters? A three set match is called a 'destruction', a straight sets match is called a 'squeak' :lol:

Yay! Not gonna read too much into the score since it's Mirjana's first match in a little while. Glad she got through, although Doi will definitely prove to be stiffer competition. Hope she can keep going! :D
