Nelson 2-6, 7-5, 6-3. But, if Lucic wins i will be happy aswell. I hope Lucic can comeback and i hope hope Nelson plays the tour this summer. This match is a tough call for me :lol:

I didn't want this match up :( Lindsey likes to play against the power hitters so I feel like this match up suits her well..

Good luck to both!

I'm thinking this matchup is really good for Lindsey. Mirjana hits hard from baseline but is very erratic, slow, and has an inconsistent serve. I hope Nelson advacnes!!!

I'm SOOO nervous for Mirjana. I hope she wins. It could be huge for her.

I have no idea who the American is, and there's a problem with that-- off to do some research. Anybody got anything on her?

This is a rare situation in which both players probably got the best draw they could hope for...

This is the best 1st round draw for Mirjana...But still it could go on to be tough, but i wish her all the best:)

Lindsey Nelson I think

Jakeev

Not sure how much either player knows about each other. Lindsay has been playing a lot of competitive tennis when Mirjana had disappeared so I doubt she is going to be easily intimidated.

Looks to be an interesting matchup.

Rather unusual in that the pick of the 1st round should be a match between two girls not ranked in the top 500. This is a great opportunity for both players. Like a few people before me head says Lindsay, heart says Mirjana.

Well, it should be Lucic, but Nelson is at home and has already played two matches, she has nothing to loose, while Lucic is expected.... I answered Nelson...

I really hope that Lucic will win this match. So my vote goes to her.

William Hill is offering 2.5 on Lucic and 1.44 on Nelson. Must have been a tricky one to figure out for them..

Wow. Happy with that draw! Would like both players to win... BUT this way at LEAST one of them will. LOL

I guess Mirjana will win

Lindsey Nelson is a lot better than her ranking suggests, due to her infrequent visits to the pro tour. On the other hand this draw is as good as it gets for Mirjana for a tier 1 match. Not sure how Mirjana's training has been going since Memphis, but Nelson's qualy wins over Spears and Dubois suggest that it'll be a Nelson victory - hope I'm wrong though.

nothing against Lucic, I hope she gets her career turned around. Anytime a girl earns her way into the main draw thru qualifying and plays a "gift" WC, I'm always going to pull for the girl that earned her way into the Main Draw.

Having seen Nelson play, her strokes are double-handed both sides but very odd, and honestly her serve is flat out not good enough for a girl as tall as she is.

tennis_pIayer
Mar 7th, 2007, 10:55 PM
Nelson just came back from 1-4 down in 2nd set, and also saved 2 mps on her serve. Now she's serving for 2nd set!

She definitely needs to improve her serve, and get stronger overall. needs to start eating and hit the weightroom.

tennis_pIayer
Mar 7th, 2007, 10:56 PM
Just as a I say that, she goes down 0-40...oh well TB here they go.
