Misa always loses at the final qualifying round (AO, RG, and now Wimbledon) :(
I'm happy that Misa lost against Mirjana. Mirjana deserves to play in the MD. Congrats Mirjana :hatoff:

But Misa :sad: Please get that LL spot now!

Easier than expected, this will mean so much to Mirjana, really happy for her and hopefully she gets a good draw.

Hopefully Michaella will be back playing at the level she is capable of soon too, both these girls shouldn't be playing qualifying with their abilities.

Mirijana could well make some noise in the MD. She's playing some big first strike tennis.

From the Wimby website blog:

鄭fter so many years, every match was like winning Wimbledon for me. I was so focussed. I have a couple of strained muscles but I was fighting. I知 hard on myself so now I知 proud of myself to go from the smallest tournaments all the way to Wimbledon, without getting any wild cards. I would drive by the main site every day and tell myself 選知 getting there, I知 getting there, and now I知 going there! What a wonderful story.

A little dissapointing that sheエs a little injured :mad:

It seems like she's a bit fatigued and I think/hope 3-4 days of rest should serve her well.

That's really amazing. What a testament to her hard work.

I'm glad the AELTC didn't give Lucic the WC. She needed to win these matches, and she did. This will improve her confidence in whatever MD match(es) she plays, knowing that she earned her spot there and wasn't just gifted it.

This. Playing three important matches in just a few days - she's not used to all that match play with pressure on the line. Of course it makes your muscles tighten up and need a break! I don't think she'll be "injured" next week. I sure hope she gets a favorable draw that allows her to play her way into the tournament.

she actually has had problems with injury before coming to england and she played a lot of matches in last few weeks so i think this is injury and not ''injury''

Exactly, she had both knees taped in Brum, it's just wear and tear she's playing through.

I would say Mirjana was the single most impressive player I saw all week in qualifying. Quite simply today she totally overpowered Michaella. If Michaella didn't serve exceptionally well and if Mirjana did have a couple of sloppy games this scoreline could easily have been even more brutal. And Michaella certainly did not play badly.

I think at the start of qualifying the general agreement was that if she qualified it would be a great achievement. Well she has qualified. But the way she has played she has done more than that. She has raised the stakes. Obviously like all the qualifiers she will to an extent be dependent on the draw but I have to be honest, right now I would expect her to beat a very substantial percentage of the players she could draw. I would say she is quite capable of beating several seeded players too. So I am no longer hoping Mirjana can now just get a win in the main draw, I am rather fancying her chances with the right draw of her getting two or three. Yes, Mirjana Lucic is playing very very well.

So happy for her, can't think of too many people who deserve this more after all of the struggles she's had to endure through the years.

Good luck in the main draw Mirjana!!! :D

Awesome! Was really rooting for her to come through. All in straights sets-impressive! Let's hope she can avoid one of the top seeds :scared:

In any event, this wimbledon is already a success for her. Going straights from ITFs to main draw of wimbledon. she doesn't mess around :)

I even forgive her for beating Monica in '99 ;)
