Q v Lucic-Baroni

Miki's 2016 was steady. The third consecutive year she finished in the Top 100, although trending downward a bit.

As always, to get any wins from the Aussie swing would be a good thing for Miki. She never did particularly well this time of year.

But, as they say, there's a first time for everything ;)


GL!

Good luck Miki, hope you will have better results this year during Aussie season.

I don't expect anything in the first tournament

She didn't do much at all post Strasbourg.

Hopefully, the long break helped her back problem.

It would be cool if she made it far enough to play Serena.

Mirjana's first match of 2017 will be against one of these players:

+ Hibino [1] or Rodionova
+ Barthel or Jakupovic [8]
+ Stefkova or Martinkova
+ Loeb or Townsend [6]

Will play Barthel in the 2nd match of the day on C2 tomorrow. Play starts at half past noon local time.

But today was washed away for the most part, so who knows if and when they get to play.

Aghhh, the one qualifier I don't want her to draw.

Good luck Miki, will be tough against Barthel

Barthel, while low ranked because of a slump, is by far the best qualifier.

Just glad Mirjana is still playing.

I'm so frustrated by the lack of a good feed. It's killing me. I'm willing to pay whatever but the WTA is too fucking incompetent to make it an option

I missed most of the second and all of the third because the WTA is a joke, but great start to the year for Miki! Looked like a pretty high quality match!

Ostapenko crushed Erakovic. I didn't see any of it. Will be a touch matchup for Miki

Erakovic was horrible, so can't really judge Ostapenko's performance there.

Miki has a chance, will be so nice if she can win and play Serena in the QF

Couldn't watch Miki's debut, but how heartening to see her open with a nice win. From the Q-round scorelines, Barthel appears to be playing far above her ranking.

Mostly, it's a wonderful thing that Miki opens a season with a main draw WTA victory. In 2017! Ostapenko is obviously very dangerous (reminds me of Bencic, when Bencic could still play) but she can be overpowered if the points are kept short. Hope Miki can hang in there.
