I haven't seen a thread for this interesting match-up.
Lucic is again very lucky with her GS 1R opponent. Their H2H consists of one crazy scoreline from few months back
Quebec City R1: Mirjana Lucic def. Sorana Cirstea 06 61 61

Sori's still in awful shape right? So Lucic in 2.

She did beat Barrois, Dushevina and Scheepers only this year.

Hard to call. I like both girls and would be happy for whoever won this match. As for trying to predict who will win I think probably all we have to go on are the very few matches that both have played thus far this year and use that as an indication of form. On that basis I am inclinded to think Cirstea will be the favourite, having had solid wins over Dushevina, Barrois and Scheepers this year.

However, while using the 1st two weeks of the season as a gauge for assessing a player's form is probably our only realistic means of comparing the level of players prior to the AO it is hardly reliable.

So I will say that while the results of the first two weeks of the season point to a Cirstea win, anything can happen here.

I am a fan of Mirjana...but she has not been in good form over the Australian season so I'm going to go with Sorana who has had better wins already this year

Sori to win in 3. Really hope she wins this one. She seems to be playing a bit better so far this year so can do it :)

Hope to God, Mirjana. She's worked so fucking hard to get back to this stage (direct entry at an MD) and now she needs to take the next step and get a win. AJMO AJMO AJMO!

Sorana will be tough. That Quebec City match they played was bizzare to say the least, but the surface was also quite a bit quicker than the AO hard courts.

Craziest match I've ever seen, that Quebec City one. Expecting nothing less this time.

I haven't seen a thread for this interesting match-up.
Lucic is again very lucky with her GS 1R opponent.

She's only played two slam main draws in the past 9 or so years. She qualified for both, drawing Azarenka in the first round of Wimbledon and Molik in the US Open. I wouldn't call her very lucky with her draws.

Hopefully Miki will win but Sorana has been showing a bit of improvement lately.

Lucic will win 5-7, 7-6, 9-7 in 97 minutes. :tears:

Azarenka on grass wasn't out of reach for Lucic, besides by "again" I obviously meant again after USO, where she drew a jackpot.

I hope Mirjana will win, but her start to the new season wasn't very promising. :sad:

Mirjana really seems to turn her game up a notch at the Grand Slam events since her comeback, so I'll go with her in two tight sets.
