Mirjana's 2017 Grass Swing

Nicelescu, despite her horrendous recent form, will be a test.

She's beaten Mirjana before and her slice and dice game will keep the ball out of Mirjana's strike zone on this low bouncing surface.

Agreed. Hope Miki is healthy. Monica certainly knows how to play on grass

Re: Mirjana's 2017 Grass Swing

Tough opening opponent, but it's time for Mirjana to step it up and play the kind of ball she has been exhibiting to reach such a high ranking.

Would love to see her against Petra. Oh, the poor ball. 🎾

To my mind, she will have to execute more of an all-court plan against Niculescu. Landing big serves and her big bombs off the forehand, as usual, but also moving into net more than usual to cut off those low, slicing replies.

Hope she's prepared for the grass.

Third up on center court, so hoping for a feed. The fact that the WTA still does not have their streaming platform in place is shocking

Weather should hold up for the first round in Eastbourne, but from Tuesday till Friday there could be a lot of problems with rain.

GL Miki!

Re: Mirjana's 2017 Grass Swing

I have a horrible gut feeling about this. Very nervous

But don't you always?

Kidding

To me, even if she loses today it's not a big deal.

At least she is playing.

Much better than going into Wimbledon with no match prep, which is something that seemed possible from her interview at the French Open.

Broken at love to trail 1-3. Crappy start.

Re: Mirjana's 2017 Grass Swing

Horrible. 8 straight points lost to trail 1-4. Not even going to bother watching this embarrassment.

Re: Mirjana's 2017 Grass Swing

back on track after a talk with the coach

That missed overhead at 1-2 started the mess. She's regrouped well now

Re: Mirjana's 2017 Grass Swing

Perhaps a glimmer?

Break back and now on serve. Confidence crucial here.

Re: Mirjana's 2017 Grass Swing

I start watching at 4-4 15-40 and she puts a shot over the baseline and then a tame return into the net.

Dear god. She thinks she is playing cricket and must hit everything over the boundary
