I think we have all been in denial about Mirka's role in Fed's success. I'll bet during all of this time when Rodger had no coach or only occasional sessions with Tony Roche, Mirka was really helping him with his game and with scouting opponents. I always get a chuckle about the Mirka-bashing threads, and in fact my wife referrs to her as "Orca" the whale. However, I think there is a good chance she's a pulling a Brad Gilbert over at Club Fed. I wonder what kinds of bets she makes with Rodger--as in "If you win the French Open, I'll let you #*%!*# me in the #*$.
