I don't think anybody here was referring to your English, but without knowing the poster in question you can't really understand what we thought. Doesn't matter

If somebody said to anybody who watched that match that one of these girls is gonna be Wibledon champion within a year, I believe many would think it's gonna be Lucic. Because she just seemed a level above current Wimbledon champion.
But in R3 she lost to Vinci, just couldn't find a way to break that serve and surely was unlucky with a line call at the crucial moment.

So Mirjana's last player that defeated Wimbledon champion in Wimbledon. Like that means anything. :/

Yes, this is all quite true, but we have to remember that the last time Mirjana made more than 3 wins in the main draw of the same WTA event was more than a decade ago and in order to reach the final of a slam you have to make 5 - a big problem for Mirjana, even on the ITF circuit. And on top of it all, Sabine Lisicki knows this best now, it's not just necessary to beat a certain player to win the whole thing - she took out Serena and still hasn't won the tournament. Mirjana from the first set of that CSN match would've surely won Wimbledon, if she were able to play that well all the time, but that's waaaaaaaaaaay easier said than done.

let's just enjoy the fact that she is still playing and seems to be having fun. Especially enjoy her doubles! Her and JJ are doing a fantastic job and may even be seeded at the US Open which would be awesome for them both!

Enjoy the last couple years of your career Mirjana. Have some fun! Hopefully her and jelena can have a good run and grab a doubles title somewhere! Or even a small singles title somewhere would be awesome too!
^ This. I really do come to like lucic and such good story. Just great to see this woman is doing job she loves working hard looking good all of it and even making some good $$$. Plus shes really hot looking woman do disgree a bit tho for I think she got big game enough and talent to win good but seems mental side of tennis her big problem. Feel for lucic cuz she wants it so bad gets in the way of her game. But yes think if she was gonna get over mental problems would already happened. No crime lucic not in top 10 of the wta. Amazing she can make living and that's lot of respect. Would love see her win singles title and more double with JJ. Lucic gonna win something good but will be freak run. Really big win but freak run before the hat hangs up.
