Mirjana's 2011 grass-court season

...hope it won't be a short one.

In $75+H Nottingham, Mirjana is seeded #6. Her draw could have been better but it also could have been worse. In R1 she plays Foretz Gacon (#133). Whoever wins will play Keothavong or Broady (WC).

I'll be thrilled if Mirjana reaches the QF. Good luck!

Re: Mirjana's 2011 grass-court season

Yeah, GL. She'll need it. Her nice breakthrough momentum from Barcelona-Strasbourg was abuptly halted by the (let's face it) shit draw in Paris. Garcia would have killed her in Paris, even if Sharapova had broken a leg during the first round. Even more ugly was a 6-0 6-0shellacking in doubles. Not even a game. Mirjana ate 3 bagels in Paris.

I'm done expecting anything from Mirjana except for what she actually manages to do. No expectations, no disappointments. Foretz Gacon is streaky but can produce occasional beat-down tennis. Keothavong (likely winner over Broady) will bounce anything less than a focused Lucic. It's tough out there; they all have to bring it. If Lucic wants anything to happen in what's left of this comeback/career she has to start believing in herself like she did in Strasbourg and build on results ... not take backward steps when she happens to get a good result every twelve years.

It's grass. She might have some tricks up her sleeve. Who knows?

Re: Mirjana's 2011 grass-court season

Someone on the tournament thread says Miki lost 46 46. Guess Foretz had one of her good days.

We can hardly expect even a determined, focused "comeback-minded" player like Mirjana to withstand the ferocious onslaught and overwhelming talent of the great Stephanie Foretz Gacon, who is feared by players across the earth (particularly after she added the "Gacon" to her name).

No, we must not despair. The very name of Foretz Gacon sends chills down the spines of even the most elite competitors. She enters a locker-room and champions tremble. Many urinate uncontrollably in their panties out of primeval fear.

Mirjana cannot be faulted for coming up short against The Legend, against The Greatness, against the Glory ... of Madame Foretz Gacon.

it's just one match. I don't see how losing one match means she is in big trouble. she does have alot of points to defend in the next few weeks to stay in top 100 but she didn't lose any points today.

I think the point is that it's one more bad loss among many just this year. Last year, she was kicking the tomato-can players routinely. This year those types of players are kicking her. Disturbing. The crux of the matter is that she is running out of time. Now that she has a relatively decent ranking to work with, and the goal to make the next logical leap, every opportunity counts so much more than ever before. With all the points opps she has had this year, so many patches with nothing to defend, she should have been at least in the Top 60 by now, but she is showing no signs of the ability to sustain form from one moment or event to the next (Strasbourg excluded).

To my mind, she is already a success because she reached the Top 100 again. If she never does anything else of note (and I am realistically beginning to doubt), then she has done enough and should be proud.

Re: Mirjana's 2011 grass-court season

Oh man ... look at the way the draw played-out in Nottingham. Mirjana could have won this whole thing and had time to bake birthday cakes for seventy-five local orphans, if she had the slightest firecracker under her ass.

RUMOR: She feels she has a good chance to win Wimbledon.

Is it a sin to convert to Petkovic?
