It looks like Mirkovic withdrew because Jovanovski beat Lukic (SLO).
Jovanovski will be tough. She's 16 and very much looks like she's an up-and-coming player. This is only her third tournament of the year. She won the first one, last month in Prokuplje ($10K) as a wildcard and only lost 11 games in five matches
She even beat the #3 seed 60 60! In her second tournament ($50K in Palic, last week) she lost a close match to Wienerova, who's ranked 250, 67(3) 36.
Good luck Silvia!
