Mireille lost the final to Kyung-Mi Chang 5-7 6-3 7-6(2)
Mireille since July 2003 has played 16 tiebreakers and has lost 14 of them!!!!!!!!
That is a horrific stat and is the sole reason her singles rank has doubled from the low 200's to 440's! At least with her 13-2 win loss the last three weeks, not only has she earnt some precious prizemoney, but it will push her back up 40 places to 405. A good start to the year but she led 1 set to love in both finals and lost concentration which isnt good.
I wouldnt say that Mireille chokes, I think that she is just playing too careful and not aggressively enough in the tiebreakers! From the match report, Kyung-Mi Chang played aggressively really going for her forehands in the tiebreaker and hit many forehand winners. Mireille shouldve been more aggressive and tried to play to her backhand
