Mirjana is at #104 this week, up from 108.

She'll have a golden opportunity during the first quarter of next year to re-enter the top 100. She's defending only 40 points (at the AO) until mid-March.

IIRC, she was in a similar situation the past two years--with excellent opportunities to advance in the rankings at the beginning of the season--and she blew it both times. Hopefully next year will be different.

Bummer. I thought she had a good shot at winning the whole event.

I wish she wouldn't lose so often to players ranked beneath her, but credit to Keys, who is in good form, clearly.

Mike gave her a bit tougher time than Mattek-Sands.

At least she ends the season ranked higher than she was last year, and at least ends it moving UP instead of down, with lots of matches in and even a little dubs title. Could be a lot worse.

Hope Prpic gets her to that breakthrough at the start of 2013. She's still stalled in the low 100s ... Can't seem to snap out of it.

But credit to her for ending respectably with some gutsy wins.

not good, but keys will probably take it all.

Ugh, Mirjana lost, 57 16. I thought she would win this. I'm very disappointed--it was a good chance to reach a $75K SF.

Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer

i just hope mirjana is not injured... also, i hope she'll won this match too... this is great opp. for mirjana to gain some confidence back and just to squeeze into top 100 again... to be honest, i was scared about her first match against kudryavtseva and it seams to me that training with Prpich is showing results already.... the ultimate test will come at the begining of the year-couple of tournaments at the begining of the year and ofcourse AO where, i hope, she secured MD.... if she still has the hunger she still can make some nice results like Wimbledon this year... i truely hope for better begining of the season than this year....

Just watched Graf match form 99. One easy volley she missed to lose that second set...
If she didn't who knows where she would be today.
But, again, she's on court, probably figthing.. go miki

Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer

If she loses today she'll be #104 next week.
SF= #102
F= #98
W= #94

Probably because the 14 points she got by reaching R2 is still lower than her 16th best result (taking into account the mandatory events).
So far Mirjana has a best16 of 638 pts = #107

And if...

Semifinal b16-658 = #105
Final b16-686 = #100
Winner b16-718 = #93

Obviously everything is based on this week ranking.
Karatancheva, Tsurenko and Puchova are gonna losing enough points to finish behind Lucic, so she'll probably reach at least #104.

Let's see and good luck!

Whoah. You are correct. And you know Mirjana realizes this. And she doesn't like it one bit. She's a proud character. I expect she'll come out firing against Keys, with all her power on display.

Could be a wreck ... Could be a win. But she'll be at full power tomorrow.

Great win with good chance to keep going further!

Re: Mirjana: 2012 American summer

The only thing I can think of is they don't want to give anyone too little rest for the match on Sat. so no third match on center court.
