Good well done Mirjana, I'm so glad you beat Laura "oh she's better than me and works harder so that has to mean she's on roids even though I've no basis whatsoever for my ridiclously malicious and outlandish claims" Granville.

Who is Chichi Scholl anyways? Seems to be playing well this event, but I've never heard of her?

He's referring to Laura's past remarks about the subject of players/steroids. IMO the media should have never gone there in the first place.

I'm glad to see Mirjana get a good win. I really admire the persistence Mirjana has shown these last 18 months. She has slogged away week after week often having to play qualifying just to make the draws for a 25k ITF event and in truth she has had very little to show for her hard work the last 18 months. It can be easy for a player won their 1st tournament at the age of 15 and who was in a Grand Slam semi just a little after her 17th birthday, to find themselves at 27 having to qualify for 25ks. I have a lot of respect for her actually.

I generally hate it when people refer to players deserving or not deserving to win a title or get to a ranking or so on. Who's really to say who deserves what? But I must admit I would love to see Mirjana somehow find the form that once took her well inside the top 50. If by some miracle Mirjana was to find her way back to the top 100 I'd be really happy for her. Infact I would say she deserved it.

Are you serious? That was almost 7 years ago.. She had turned pro one year prior. Get over it.

:eek: The only quote of Laura saying anything is that she's heard rumours about Momo, BUT she works really hard...that's hardly someone saying another player's on roids.


WD Lucic. :cool:

Beautifully said, and I agree. :)

Surprising win for Mirjana, she should be very pleased. :yeah:

And when did the Indian Wells controversy happen? You don't see the Williamses getting over that do you?

Good win Mirjana! :yeah:

Hopefully she can follow it up though. She has strange losses. I don't mean to be a debbie downer, but i wouldn't be surprised to see her lose to Scholl. Hopefully i'm wrong though. :cool:

Main draw wins have always been hard to come by recently for Mirjana though. This is when she needs to sustain this level of confidence and make some noise. Based on form, she seems to have found something. If she double bagelled someone half decent, that means she's at least somewhat controlling her stupid UE's. :)

Ajmo!

well, she certainly had to have had a positive winner/ue ration in that last match which, for her, is great. wish someone was in osprey that could give us some updates. really hope she gets a good md placement -- if she keeps her level up anything can happen

Ajmo!

She's working with a new coach, she's excited about playing -- maybe everything is finally coming together. I really hope so. :hearts: I've posted an article in her fan thread with some quotes from her from yesterday.

mirjana won her final qualifying round 6/0 /6/0 :)

i hope she can win a round in the main draw, that would be 4 wins in a row which would be really encouraging for mirjana...fingers firmly crossed

mirjana, i still believe in you :kiss:
