Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

Good R1 draw; Lucic leads the H2H 1-0.

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

R1 is doable, after that it's all a Miki-style mystery.

Best of luck girl!

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

Good draw, hopefully she can make the best of it.

Make a good start to 2018 please, Miki

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day


=Good luck to my favourite players: Mirjana Lucic, Elena Dementieva, Li Na, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Vera Zvonareva, Zheng Jie, Venus Williams =

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

Tough quarter but it will be nice to see her get through round 1 at least. I'm hoping she feels invigorated here down under from last year's Aus. Open result.

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

If she's healthy, she should overpower Maria.

It will be interesting to see how she plays because she has admitted she hasn't tested the shoulder much during off-season.

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

Some things never change

The mentality is still massively fragile

down a break 2-1

Wins 4 straight games for 5-2

has 0-40, 3 set points

loses 5 points in a row

5-3

30-0

loses 4 points in a row

5-4

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

She looks fine physically

It's all on her racquet.

Maria tries to mix it up but it's almost always in Mirjana's hitting zone.

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

3-3

Typical

When it's time to put the foot on the gas she gets hesitant and takes it off

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

it's embarassing

Maria has nothing

Lucic misses sitter overhead at 30-15

then has game point but misses gp on serve

then assorted UE's to get broken

Re: Mirjana in Australia 2018

What should be a 6-2 6-3 win will likely go 3 sets where anything can happen
