Gotta believe Lucic-B can do it, if she brings her A game. But it won't happen if she throws down so many DFs again.
I'm sure Prpic will guide her appropriately. Every win this year is a critical, important win for her (even qualifying wins) and today's win was her most important of the season so far, given how she nearly swallowed her racket and yet turned it around in such dominant fashion.
She's past due to beat a Top 70 player. Truly. We have seen her bring Top 30-50 tennis several times in the past few years. It can be done again!
And, seriously ... Has Mirjana won a tiebreaker in singles since the double-disaster against Vinci at W last summer?
If not, SCARY.
Didn't she beat El Tabakh in a final set tie break after appearing to have thrown it away ?
