100K Biarritz

Opened a thread for this tournament since we don't know miki's schedule.

(5)Romina Oprandi (SUI) v Mirjana Lucic (CRO)
Amra Sadikovic (SUI) v Stefanie Voegele (SUI)
Magdalena Rybarikova (SVK) v Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino (ESP)
(3)Mathilde Johansson (FRA) v Paula Ormaechea (ARG)

Good luck! Could be tough...Oprandi made the semis in Biella this week

Hey C 123 -- I just wedged a summer thread in a minute ago; didn't see your Biarritz thread until now. I'll post to yours while she is in Biarritz

Cheers~

Re: 100K Biarritz

Oprandi's playing similar to Vinci so it won't be easy, not on clay. But any potential match seems hard so gl Miki.

Re: 100K Biarritz

Oprandi is a witch on wheels ... I remember the close Vegas loss back in late 09. Hope Miki wants to really get some traction, here.

Go Miss Miki!

Re: 100K Biarritz

Well, here at Stanford (Taube Family Tennis Center) I am amazed by the decline. Only two courts going all day for the qually girls, and I must say, a lackluster field. Coco was out warming up, and Sesil, and so was Oudin, for a bit, but the word here is that they fast-tracked her right into the MD via wc, so this field is so weak, I am sure Miki could have gotten a wc, too ;-(

Yes, last year Miki laid what I consider the biggest egg of her career here in a 1 and 0 49-minute fiasco to McHale, but that was after the Wimby crush of Cibulkova, and after she choked herself to hell against Cirstea ... Plus she had wedding plans on her mind all summer.

Marriage is as big a force in life as any "career" so I totally understand her suckage last year after Wimby/Cuneo.

Different Miki this year. Like Chrissie Evert and others said during the final this morning, Serena is a "young 30" and so is Miki -- her fitness is impeccable. I think the clay is a good transition for Miki to hard courts ... Her clay results have always been strong, and it forces her to be a bit more patient and selective with her big game.

Everyone here -- the players and their coaches & hitting partners have been chattering about Aggie's good fight against Serena. Aggie is, apparently, VERY well-liked by her tour peers.

Wish Mike was here. Matches ready to start right NOW!

Re: 100K Biarritz

Um ... Wish Miki were here ... Not even remotely aware of a 'Mike' in my current or previous existence.

Coco! [he said, pointlessly, about a player who interests him not].

Romina will be a nightmare for Mirjana.
I see an easy loss for her

Yeah, well, that's just a fabulous comment.

My sense is that Miki is on the coast because she still wants to play some serious tennis.

She just destroyed a Top 10 ... I actually think she has the talent to handle Romina Freakin' Oprandi.

Team MIKI

Re: 100K Biarritz

She really should have played Stanford. For a Premier event, the draw is ridiculously weak.

Re: 100K Biarritz

GL, but I echo the sentiments in here over her choice of event.

Still, win please.

She has withdrawn from Biarritz. Her place has been taken by a qualifier
