Re: Mirjana's 2014 Aussie Tour

Mirjana hasn't entered Paris Q-list, but ALG says on her website she'll play with Mirjana.

Well, I doubt she'll play at all.

I wonder. This could very well be true, of course.

But Her absence from the Paris Q-List might indicate that she is being economic, too. To play qualifying, she would have to arrive at the site days ahead of her doubles partner, who is obviously not playing singles at all, and stay on into the beginning of the subsequent week to await her first doubles match, win or lose. Paris is lovely, but it's more expensive to stay there than ever. It may not make financial sense for Mirjana to play both the qualifying event and the main draw doubles event, with coach in-tow and the whole works.

That being said, I hope she doesn't transition to a role as "doubles specialist" too quickly. While she's capable of staying near the Top 100 and making the main draw at Grand Slam events, I hope she still devotes a lot of energy to singles, using doubles to make that crucial extra money. Last year was so great for her career, making over $300,000 like she did. I think she finished in the Top 80 for prize-money; that puts her in the category of women pros who are actually able to make a nice, respectable financial profit from tennis. As someone else said before, though (might have been Ajmo) she will probably have some atypical adjustments in her schedule for as long as she's committed to Anna-Lena's doubles plans, and vice versa.

We'll have to see how the partnership works out. I hope it does. Anyway, here's hoping for a great Oz Open draw all the way around. I think she could win a singles match -- maybe even two. How great that would be.

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Aussie Tour

They just need some good draw. In Brisbane Rodionova/Kudr. won the title, now Eranni/Vinci are probably gona do the same since they are in the final.

Actually, Sabine can be hit or miss so maybe bad Sabine will show up.

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Aussie Tour

Maybe she can get some luck back.
Remember Birmingham. Such a good tennis, better than Lisicki and then that dead bounce at 57 62 45 30/30

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Aussie Tour

what a terrible draw

But with Miki, even with good draw, there is no guarantee she will take advantage of it.
Hopefully she will give a good fight against Sabine

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Aussie Tour

Awful draw. Mirjana played her here a few years ago, didn't she? I think Sabine won 3 and 4 and that's when Sabine was just beginning her comeback and had not a lot of confidence.

The only good thing? Mirjana certainly knows what to expect and Lisicki will not have forgotten Birmingham.

Oh, Mirjana. Well, if she can have one of her "zone matches" she has every year, anything can happen.

Good luck, ML-B. Just try your best and have fun. Take it to her -- you have nothing to lose. No one on earth expects you to win.

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Aussie Tour

Browsing quickly through the draw to see what other journeywomen have drawn

Mandy Minella vs. Q.

Who does that woman pay for her draws? Is there some deal with the mafia?

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Aussie Tour

No reason to complain about the "tough draw". She drew Vickery at the US Open and couldn't get a set. Sad to say but Mirjana is the biggest walking bye into round 2 for anyone unless she somehow brings her best game to the court.
