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

Make a good start to 2018 please, Miki :bounce:

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.

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.

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

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.

3-3

Typical

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

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

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

lucky it's not injury, just dizziness.

She's back playing better now 3-0 third set.
Please no choke so early in the season

I’m impressed. She was not feeling well at all in the second set, toughed out an important service hold to open the third, and then raised her level and just crushed Maria. Well done!
