What a great opportunity for one of these players to win a round. :eek: :D

AJMO MIRJANA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :rocker2: I bet she'll be feeling more pressure as a result of this easy-as-can-possibly-be draw, but I think she can do it.

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:07 AM
Go Lindsey! :banana:

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:12 AM

Good luck Lucic!

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:23 AM

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:30 AM
good luck lindsey :D

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:37 AM
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:

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:40 AM
I wonder what odds we will get on this match.:confused:

It should be interesting;)

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:50 AM
Lucic 0-6 7-6(6) 6-0.

Mar 7th, 2007, 05:38 AM
Hopefully Mirjana. Good Luck.

Mar 7th, 2007, 05:54 AM
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!

Mar 7th, 2007, 06:06 AM
C'mon Mirjana. :D

Mar 7th, 2007, 06:07 AM
good luck Mirjana :bounce:

Mar 7th, 2007, 06:11 AM
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!!!

Mar 7th, 2007, 06:41 AM
C'mon Mirjana!!

Mar 7th, 2007, 06:53 AM
I hope Mirjana, but I think Lindsey. :(

Mar 7th, 2007, 07:02 AM
Go Mirjana :D

Mar 7th, 2007, 07:08 AM

Come on Miki! :sad: :hug: :D I'm gonna be so nervous following this tomorrow. Blah.

Mar 7th, 2007, 07:23 AM
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?

Mar 7th, 2007, 07:26 AM
how Nelson play?

Mar 7th, 2007, 07:49 AM
This is a rare situation in which both players probably got the best draw they could hope for...

Mar 7th, 2007, 07:50 AM
Nelson :shrug:

Mar 7th, 2007, 07:54 AM
Hopefully Mirjana ;)

Mar 7th, 2007, 08:08 AM
Go Mirjana! :D Lindsey plays two handed both sides does she not? :shrug:

Mar 7th, 2007, 09:19 AM
i think lucic's story has touched many on this board..
we're all behind u mirjana.. give it your best shot!

Mar 7th, 2007, 10:56 AM
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:)

Mar 7th, 2007, 11:34 AM
Lindsey Nelson I think

Mar 7th, 2007, 11:48 AM
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.

I think Lindsey will win.

Mar 7th, 2007, 12:50 PM
Head says Nelson 3-6 6-4 6-2
Heart says Lucic 6-4 3-6 6-4

Mar 7th, 2007, 12:55 PM
Good luck Miki :hearts:

Mar 7th, 2007, 01:41 PM

Mar 7th, 2007, 01:54 PM
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.

Mar 7th, 2007, 01:56 PM
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.

Mar 7th, 2007, 02:02 PM
Mirjana 4-6,6-1,6-3 :kiss:

Mar 7th, 2007, 02:33 PM
Miki 63 63

Mar 7th, 2007, 02:50 PM
William Hill is offering 2.5 on Lucic and 1.44 on Nelson. Must have been a tricky one to figure out for them..

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:02 PM
Wow. Happy with that draw! Would like both players to win... BUT this way at LEAST one of them will. LOL

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:18 PM
who the hell is L Nelson?
I guess Mirjana will win

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:20 PM
Come on Lucic

Mar 7th, 2007, 04:25 PM
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.

Mar 7th, 2007, 05:15 PM
Lucic :)

Mar 7th, 2007, 08:21 PM
The bookies quote 6/4 Lucic and 4/9 Nelson

Mar 7th, 2007, 08:25 PM
I love them both. :sad: I'm saying Lindsey in 3. :unsure:

Mar 7th, 2007, 08:26 PM
Lord Nelson is playing? Wow.

Mar 7th, 2007, 08:30 PM
nelson will scrape it in 3

Mar 7th, 2007, 08:34 PM
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.

Mar 7th, 2007, 10:04 PM
right now close first set...LN serving at 4-5.

Sammy 4 eva!!!
Mar 7th, 2007, 10:27 PM
Lucic is winning 6-4 4-1!!

Mar 7th, 2007, 10:38 PM
Go Mirjana!

Mar 7th, 2007, 10:43 PM
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.

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.

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

Mar 7th, 2007, 11:05 PM
LN loses 5-7 in TB. oh well good try nelson
