Mirjana spring clay campaign in 2015

So finally a win against Rodionova. Can she back it up against Voegele? She's really dangerous on clay.

Re: Mirjana spring clay campaign in 2015

6:2, 6:0 vs. Voegele!

They've played twice before, Miki won once in three sets, but their only previous match on clay went to Voegele pretty convincingly 6:2, 6:4. That makes this win even more impressive.

Now onto the main draw, and with these two wins under her belt, and a bit of luck with the placement, God only knows what could happen. Madrid is the best place for big hitters among all claycourt venues (due to altitude), so we might be in for an interesting week

Go for it Miki!

Re: Mirjana spring clay campaign in 2015

Great result. Maybe skipping Stuttgardt will turn out to be a wise decision. She's in Madrid fresh and not burned out by too many matches. I believe this will be her first main draw in Madrid, having lost in Qualifying to Keys in '13 and, I hate to remind everyone, Medina-Garrigus in '11.

Wasn't Medina in Rome? I think she lost to Llagostera one year.

Re: Mirjana spring clay campaign in 2015

The Q spots are pretty tough except two Q's will play each other. I wouldn't mind seeing her draw Kvitova She's pretty rusty and just retuning from injury. That would be an interesting match to see.

Re: Mirjana spring clay campaign in 2015

30 points are in the bag.
If she wins another match it will be 95 points and also great prize money 27,000 euros.

I really don't have any wishes regarding the draw. Maybe even Errani would be fun. Lepchenko has been out for a while also. Or another Q would be OK.
This spots also have winnable R2 matches.

I remember that match in Osprey. Miki was 1/17 on break points including a 13 deuce final game where she just couldn't break back and wasted 11 break points ! Much better today !

Not to mention Voegele is not really a dream draw for a player like Miki when it comes to playing a match on clay.

I remember that now that you mention it. I must have blocked it out.

Mirjana has had a few, uhmmm, "Interesting" matches on the Livescores.

Re: Mirjana spring clay campaign in 2015

Mirjana will probably have to play tomorrow but still not known against who because all Q-matches aren't finished.

On a side note, if Ajla doesn't cause an upset against Bencic in R1, Mirjana is Croatian #1.
