Overhyped, overweight and undercommited. That sums up Mirjana. How else to explain never playing more than the required 17 tournaments in a year. Hoe else to explain refusing to play tournaments unless she gets a WC or its GS qualifying. How else to explain signing up for challengers and withdrawing from them for no apparent reason. How else to explain playing SIX tournaments in the last 12 months when you're completely healthy. How else to explain why she has supposedly been working so hard down at Bolletieri's, yet refuses to test out how well her regimen is working. Fucking pathetic. There's no such thing as a successful part time tennis player on the WTA. Either commit or don't. But what she is doing is absolutely ridiculous. Just hang it up if you're going to do this 6 tournament a year crap :rolleyes:

Someone on this board said that she is suffering from a mental breakdown.

Uh, ever think she might be having problems in her life outside of tennis? I've heard her family situation isn't exactly the best.

Lucic, with her few tournaments is ranked #324, while Allison Bradshaw has played almost twice as many events and is only #543. Whom should we call a waste of oxygen? :p
Actually, Lucic is #325, and Bradshaw is #356.

i'm glad most posters didn't jump on the bandwagon of bashing lucic. there are 2000 other possible explanations. these players have others things to worry about beside tennis, they are not machines.

go lucic. booo bradshaw#1

Is it her fault if she is overhyped
I don't even think she's overhyped, except by either Evert or Austin (I can't remember which one thought she was going to be Hingis' number one challenger). When she first came out she deserved the hype. Since her plummet, no one's been hyping her.

perhaps she is making the right move in playing part-time so she can rejuvenate and come back with some more motivation which she will need if she wants to make the top 100 and have a decent career.

There is a long list of players who never quite live up to what is expected of them. I hope Lucic is not one of them though I fear she maybe. :sad:

Agree with most of the comments, but surely the only way Mirjana is going to get back to her best is playing matches!

...I don't remember anyone saying she was having a mental breakdown...she was suffering from depression...which is very different...perhaps you have confused the two... :)
