She draws Irina Falconi in Acapulco's first round, with Konta or Kontaveit as a possible 2nd round match-up.

Doable.

Falconi is consisent and gives a lot of effort, but unless she's totally off, Mirjana should overpower her. She did so the last time they played at 2014 US Open Qualifying.

At 2 AM in Europe! :cheer:

:rolleyes:
that does kind of suck

I am not sure why they start play so late (4 pm Mexican time). I guess it his very hot there

I have watched a few of Mirjana's streamed matches in the middle of the night, and I didn't think it was worth the effort.

Yeah, sometimes I'd wake up at like 4 AM only to watch her have one of her days when she stands better chance at hitting a spectator in the head than find the court with the ball... Therefore I don't think I'll be watching despite the streaming (sorry to say that), but hope you guys have some nice time watching our girl :)

And good she did :)

6:2, 6:3 is a nice start after a long break indeed.

Next up, Aussie Open semifinalist Konta, world #26. They've played eachother once before, on green clay of Raleigh back in 2010 and Konta won 2 & 4, but this should be a completely different match altogether as Konta did need 3 sets to take care of Kontaveit in her first round here.

Good luck Miki!

First I decide to watch the match in the middle of the night cause something's telling me she could win.

Then I miss the alarm.

Then in the morning I see the score and curse myself for sleeping through it.

Then I see the witness reports in the live-score thread and have to say I'm not upset anymore. Not one bit. Who needs that drama at 2 AM :lol:

Really happy to see her through, despite trying her best to mess everything up for no reason, but that's Miki and we're more or less used to all kinds of crazy with her.

Her ranking won't improve much even if she reaches the semi, but that's not as important as her stringing two wins in the same event - that should be good for confidence.

Enjoy your win(s) Miki ;)

Mirjana into Acapulco QF ! :cheer:

So happy she kicked Konta`s ass. I can`t stand her :drool:

Pusher McHale next. Mirjana should win this match - or she will self-destruct

Mirjana needs to sort out her brain :lol: But at this age I think these are the sorts of matches us fans can expect to see often.

Led 5*-1 40-0 on serve in the second set before losing the next 5 points and getting broken. She then broke to take the second set 6-2.

Led 5-1 in the final set, was broken.
Had 2 match points/break points at 5-2, didn't break.
Served for the match again at 5-3 and was broken.

She when saved 3 BPs at 5-5 before holding and then breaking to love to win :lol:
Mirjana is really such a choker and headcase :hysteric:

Leading 5-1 in final set, only to choke to 5-5. So typical Mirjana :eek:

they put the other three QF on grandstand and stuck her and McHale on Court 4 where all the other matches are doubles. I wouldn't be surprised if it is not streamed, altough court 4 has been streamed during the tournament.

Hopefully, she won't be too drained after the drama of the third set yesterday.

McHale has actually had back to back 2.5 hour matches so she shouldn't be fresh, herself.

match is streamed :)

Cibulkova just lost opening set against Larsson .... Mchale in QF and Larsson in SF looks amazing and Mirjana needs to take this chance
