She just feels "inner joy" and don't party around a lot what she has achieved but with her close ones. She doesn't feel bad at all and even understand the comments (spiced up by the press) about her and her father's standing toward the FC team and doesn't feel like "i told ya" either after the loss. She don't think the girls would have won with her in the team at all especially since she didn't feel ready to give her best in another big competition just after wimby and she'll restart training seriously and finding her marks again in Standford. Her objectives are to get better physically, not to injure herself since she played and will play a lot and maybe the Masters in Madrid. She says she thinks she won't play during summer to have (physical) tests. i think that pretty much sums up what she said.

Re: marion articles thread

Bartoli out to prove Wimbledon was no fluke
By Matthew Cronin

STANFORD, California, July 23, (Reuters) - France's Marion Bartoli is eager to prove her dream run to the Wimbledon final earlier this month was no fluke. Bartoli, 22, stunned third seed Jelena Jankovic and world number one Justine Henin at the All England Club before falling to Venus Williams in the final as she soared to a career-high 11th in the world rankings.
The second seed at this week's Stanford Classic in California, Bartoli says she proved a lot of doubters wrong.
"Not a lot of people believed I could get there except my dad and myself, but I showed everyone that I can be one of the top players in the world," Bartoli told Reuters.
"Some (analysts) said physically Marion is not good enough and she'll never be there and I showed to everyone that they were completely wrong.
"Tatiana (Golovin) and Nathalie (Dechy) didn't reach a Grand Slam final. Amelie Mauresmo and Mary Pierce did and I'm the next one. I demonstrated to everyone that I was able to be there, too."

RANKINGS RISE

Bartoli has worked her way up the rankings and ended last year at number 17 after winning three titles, but few expected her to go further than any of her countrywomen at the French Open, where she reached the fourth round, or at Wimbledon.
But with fast hands, blazing groundstrokes and a dogged determination, Bartoli overcame the inconsistent play that had plagued her in previous Grand Slams.
"You have to have a lot of belief in yourself because you have tough moments," said Bartoli, who is coached by her father, Walter.
"And you need a good dad and coach to tell you can do it. He always told me I belonged up there. When I beat Justine, I heard on the TV that I was just in the zone, but that wasn't right.
"I was playing the level that I play in practice but not always in a match."
Bartoli is very close to her father, but the relationship has cost her.

FED CUP FEUD

France's Fed Cup captain Georges Goven left her off the team that fell to Italy two weeks ago in the semi-finals because she would not participate in the tie without her father in attendance.
Goven said she would be too tired to play after her Wimbledon exertions, a reason rejected by Bartoli.
"I don't want too disturb the group, so if it's better to have four girls together than with one who is separate, it's okay."
Bartoli was hoping that after her Wimbledon run that she would have received calls of congratulations from her fellow players, but she did not.
Pierce sent her a text message, as did French president Nicolas Sarkozy, but none of the rest of her fellow players did.
"Tatiana can pass by me and not even say hello, so I'm sure she's not going to congratulate me," Bartoli said.
Bartoli received a first-round bye at Stanford and will play the winner of the match between Americans Lilia Osterloh and Jill Craybas.

Re: marion articles thread

Yeh I heard those "in the zone" remarks too. That wasnt in the zone... It was, in her level. She showed what she can do. The level she can play it. And there is more to come i'm sure.

Dr. Bartoli doesnt just believe that Marion deserves to be up there because he loves his daughter, but because it's TRUE.

So THIS is where you hang out when you're not contributing on the main site.My follow-up guess is that Lady Sovereign is NOT one of your Windsors but rather one of the bloggers here(brilliant deduction,huh?).In response to one of the other prompts,my vote is that Marion is easily the cutest of the prominent Frenchwomen(there might be some anonymous beauty who's ranked 667th or something).Sorry,Golovin,you're not REALLY French and you're apparently insecure over your natural,dark hair color while Marion wears it well,VERY well.Marion will also be the BEST Frenchwoman once she overcomes her Mauresmo nemesis(0-4 vs.).

Received some HORRIBLE news,Super M,which might sideline me,mentally,for a few days:I missed out on a teaching job at a high-quality school and this was a CRUSHING blow as I love the teaching profession--it fulfills me career-wise.In the interim,you may tell your 'cross-the-Channel buddies that there is at least one Mexican who can sing La Marseillaise and translate it into English and Spanish.Adieu! --BG
