It's a shame though because I always liked Mirjana Lucic. She hit a helluva hard ball. Imho if she could re-dedicate herself to tennis then I really think she can be in top 10. Anyone know what she is doing?

Both times she beat Corina Morariu in the final.

Mirjana also holds the record for the highest ever New Singles Entry when she debuted in the ranks at #69.

I hope she can come back and play some good stuff cos she's pretty exciting.

If Mirjana was committed 100% to tennis then I'd pick her any day of the week. If I had to pick between the two as to which would ever win a grand slam first, I'd go with Mirjana easily. She's won titles before, and she's the type of unpredictable player who on a good day can threaten any top player. Mind you when she's off it's a totally different story, but based on what both have to offer having seen both in their better moments, Mirjana has proven before she can match up with the big names and beat them. I don't think Alexandra has proven that yet.

Mirjana was a very impressive singles rankings entry at #69, but Jennifer Capriati's first WTA ranking was #25.

hmm... obv Mirjana's already won tournaments (plural!) and a doubles Slam. If you're asking who'll win a singles Slam first - right now, neither can, and if Mirjana continues in this vein, neither ever will. I'll stick my neck out and say that Stevenson will never take a singles Slam. And that's not even something I'd say about Kournikova. If Mirjana gets herself together, she WILL win a Slam. Right now, I wouldn't put money on her getting herself together though.

i think mirijana will suprise us and win wimbeldon in the next couple of years, i mean if mirijana was fit this is what she would have,

great court coverage<br />mental toughness(beat seles 7-6/7-6 at W.)<br />Topspin and power(she hits harder then davenport)<br />Great net play<br />good volleys

so with this she would sweep wimbeldon, i mean she has talent but without fitness she is nothing special, and alex lacks fitness and motivation,

so this is a tough one put mirijana is more talented then alex, so i pic mirijana, but both of this players are capable to take wimbeldon or the us in the future but for the french or australian i'm not quite sure.

I think Alexandra could be able to win a low tier tournaments next year as she seems to be a bit more consistent now.

Mirjana: it's a shame she's so low. When she played Steffi in 1999 Wimbledon, she played some of the best tennis I have ever seen (in the first set tie-break) and only lost the match with 2 bad volleys (one in set 2, one in set 3). Her potential is amazing, I hope she can come back.

Mirjana can get very far if she can get back her wimbledon 99 form, she played so well there. I hope she get`s fit then anything is still possible for her. I think Alexandra is good for some funny stories in the media but I think that`s all she has, sorry if I underestimating her here but in the two matches I saw her play she didn`t impress me at all

Alexandra has more chances to win a tournament now, than Mirjana. <br />Good luck to Mirjana in challengers though <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

The way Mirjana's career has panned out is just saddening and to think that someone with that much talent has not realised her worldly potential is a waste - although understandably she's had so many problems. I hope that someday she'll be able to realise her talent because she could go so far.
