Well she was briefly when they both turned professional!

I used to do reports for the Mirjana Lucic website on all her tournaments and I thought this would make everyone laugh from the write-up of her Bol tournament, Mirjana's first event which she played unranked through qualifying, beat a Top 10 player (Coetzer) and won:



"For those of you with a malicious streak, Mirjana's major junior rival Amelie Mauresmo fell in the second round of qualifying at Bol and was left struggling for a position in the world's Top 100."
:lol: :bounce: :lol:


Oh dear, how things change! I remember though, because Mauresmo and Lucic were such big rivals in juniors that I kept an eye on Amelie's career at the beginning, and Mauresmo was so slow at getting her professional career going compared to Lucic. Tortoise and hare syndrome I guess!

Mirjana - what a sad, sad waste of talent :(

I hope her life has gotten straightened out at least.

Forgotten Lucic was that old.

The 1998 Lucic could have been out there doing what Mary did last year - same power and faster feet......

Yeah, I hope she is happy in her life. Tennis seems to be very low on her list of priorities and it is such a shame, you don't beat Seles, and stretch Graf to three sets at Wimbledon without having a lot of potential. Such a shame.

Unless somehow Mirjana is able to do a Capriati-like comeback in a few years, she will probably go down as THE most talented teenage player never to make it as a tennis professional.

I mean it's just an absolute shame. We should be having dozens of threads about her successes and misses.

I always believe it's never too late. So many players have proven this. But in Lucic's case, I just don't know.
