Crap. Lefty Lucie the Topspin Queen.
She got waxed by Keys in Brisbane, yes, but she's currently at her career high ranking, so let's not kid ourselves.
Miki's wonky backhand will have to be perfect and so will her timing, 'cuz the only way she can even make an impression on Safarova is by taking everything early/on-the-rise. Their Charleston encounter was a disaster.
Shit. Well, anything can happen in tennis. Safarova has proved to be vulnerable to hard, flat hitters in the past, and she can go on error-sprees herself.
Mirjana has nothing to lose, but it would be nice if she could put together some vintage shotmaking.
She'll need it. Along with a lefty practice-partner the next few days.
GL, no matter what.
