Plenkovic (the tournament director) is giving wcs to talaja, kostanic, and svensson and so will not be able to give one to mirjana

what a load of crap! mirjana is 13-0 in bol AND she actually wants to come back (she said she would never play in croatia again). i like silvija and jelena, but mirjana deserves this wc more.

Is she not entitled to one purely on the basis she is a former champion I thought that usually gave you one automatically.

What about Sprem? I thought for sure she would get one :confused:

Maybe they gave her a WC for the Qualifying, which IMO, would be the better deal for Mirjana.

sprem will probably be in qualifying
mirjana should also play qualifying and i really hope she takes a Q WC

Exactly. Let her qualify.

Svensson (reigning champion), Kostanic, and Talaja are all far more deserving.

I agree with Iconoclast Svensson, Talaja & Kostanic are far more deserving for the main draw. If Mirjana wants to better her ranking she should be made to qualify instead of losing in the first round, whereas the three maindraw wildcards would be more likely to win a match, therefore are more deserving recipients.

I'm afraid that Mirjana is going to have to earn her way back in, just like every other player.

how do you know this? I thought lucic was ahead of her on the list.

Did Asa get in on her own?

I don't know what Lucic's plan is, but it sure seems like she doesnt want to earn her way back...ie playing challengers...I think she hopes that she get a MD WC into some tourney win a few rounds, get back into the top 100 and all will be well...

She needs to get her ass into gear and sign up for some challengers...tons of clay challengers going on and coming up and her name is not on any of them :mad:

About time, too. Lucic has long since stopped been deserving of wild cards. Has she ever actually won a match when she's been given one?

Talaja and Kostanic both have ~100 ranking spots on Lucic. I'm sure they want their #2 and #3 players in the main draw. This is tough love, but she has to deal with it.

Maybe Mirjana should hang out with ANNA a little bit, and then they will say "OMG she's friends with ANNA" and then they will give her wildcards! It's an ANNA WORLD out there! :worship:

No, she's needs to change her name to Anna :wavey: Then over the confusion, she'll sneak in;)

This is ridiculous! Mirjana has won the event TWICE! Show some respect to a former champion who wants to make an emotional return to her homeland.
