Seems to be a very tough draw for recent TF hype Mirjana Lucic. Vika was slumping like crazy, but she has just defeat 2 top 10 players on grass. Who will win?

Very unfortunate draw for Mirjana, she could have otherwise beaten many players here, but not Azarenka!

Inclinded to agree. This is a very tough draw particularly given how well Azarenka has played this week. Still there is the possibility Azarenka could be tired and the pressure will be on her as the favourite. I wouldn't rule out the possibility of an upset but it is unlikely.

Very unkind draw. I don't like it.

If Vika will lose to that over-hyped ball-bashing cow, I am getting on the next plane to San Francisco and jumping off the Golden Gate bridge.

Horrible draw. I hate to root against any player in this comeback situation, especially given what Lucic has been through. You feel she deserved a better draw than this.

On the flip side, getting on one of the larger courts against a big name is probably exactly what Mirjana has been missing all these years.

I feel sorry for the balls in this match.

An intriguing match up. Hope it's on a big court.

On one hand it's a very unfortunate draw for Miki, but one the other hand, it will be great to play on a televised Wimbledon court again. :p
Saying that, I expect Vika to come out on top in two close sets.

Azarenka's game suits right into Lucic's hands. Lucic will be able to do whatever she wants without being threatened much if she can hit inside the lines.

Not as esy as ABC though for Lucic unfortunately.

Azarenka high % of 1st serves, the consistent depth and relentless nature of her return game will be decisive. Lucic IMO won't be at the ball-striking level required, with inevitable mega dips in her timing etc.

It'll be a fun match though. From Lucic most probably.

Lucic is hardly a "new TF-hype" anyway, her fans have been on this forum for years, they have just been in the challenger forum most of the time.

part of me wouldn't be surprised if Lucic won . y'all know what she is capable of, and she loves a hard ball so... not impossible :inlove:

Mirjana's chances just improved dramatically. Vika's knees are in bad shape again with only a few days to rest.

Her movement will be sub-par, so Lucic will have to exploit that if she wants to win.

Vika :sad:

I hope Lucic watched the match today

Now the match depends on how Vikas knees are :sad:

Mirjana Lucic is bak for one tournament, this really doesnt mean her career has jumpstarted, Capriati to me was the one and only female prodigy to ever come back from being truly obsolete and claim her place atop the tennis pantheon, Lucic is only merely beneiting from her grass game abilities...lets see if she can qualify in other events OUTSIDE wimbledon, if she even cares....

I was a big fan of hers in her hayday but she really dissapointed me, she just gave her tennis career up...Azarenka will kill her.

Vika .. something like 6-2 7-6

I think Lucic has a very good chance to win this match :bounce:. Vika should've taken another week off to rest her knee :hug:

Voted for Lucic.

If she gets off to a good start I think Vika could fold.

Judging by Azarenka's hampered movement in the Eastbourne final I think Mirjana can win this now, so Lucic in 3!

Vika in three; 6-0 4-6 6-2 or something like that. ;)

When an opponent knows that the person they're playing is hurt they don't go for their shots. Vika in 2.

Don't kid yourself. Mirjana will go for her shots whatever the situation. I would bet my last dollar on that.

I was a big fan of hers in her hayday but she really dissapointed me, she just gave her tennis career up...Azarenka will kill her.

she cares like you can't imagine.. she is celebrating just winning points on challengers like it was wta title. she is passionate and wants to be back like you can't imagine. she loves tennis so much and would do anything to get to the top.
last year in one interview she said she would kill to play in wimbledon again, to step on cc and feel that atmosphere.
today she earned her 2nd chance and if you really are her fan you would know all of that. she may have had only few fans back when she was on itf tour, playing qualies-but i tell she'll make it and all of you will be big fans of mirjana lucic, no matter what you say now. 'cause people are like that- when you're on top eveyrbody likes you, when you're down nobody cares.
mirjana will beat azarenka today and make big run at wimbledon this year, i have no doubt.
