Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

Sydney
Welcome back on the courts Marion !
We missed you during the off-season, so great to see her name again in a draw ... especially when she is winning such as she did today : she destroyed Karin Knapp 61 60 in one hour to start the year in the best possible conditions. This is definitely good news compared to the poor form of the other top players (Jankovic, Vaidisova, Mauresmo, Chakvetadze, Dementieva). No bad surprises .
A good test for tomorrow against another Italian girl, Francesca Schiavone. Allez Marion .

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

ugh i hope she destroys her! Two Italians in a row haha

and you are right, it's good to see Marion starting 2008 a lot better than most of the top 10 grls, and infinently better than the way that she started 2007 seeing that she has no points to defend here.

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

Marion already out of Sydney with a 62 26 36 loss against Schiavone. That's alright considering all the disappointing performances of the beginning of the year ... but still, as she insisted on being ready in 2008, I expected a bit more from her. Apparently, she had a back problem during the second set.
She aims at reaching 4th round in the AO, hope she can do it.

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

Yes I thought she would win this one especially after reading that article. For a language point of view what do you think of my translation?

I also saw something about Marion maybe having an injury during the match. Perhaps it was at 3-3 in the second set which would explain the 7 game slide. But this morning there was nothing to confirm it any injury or any more details, hopefully it is nothing serious but I do hope they mention it on the WTA website.

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

I forgot that the AO was played on a slow surface! I hope we won't have bad matches just like in Moscow , this change won't benefit to Marion who will tire herself more, if she has to play more shots in every point . She is kind of right to not expect a too deep run here.
We'll be able to have a better idea when we'll have the draw obviously. I just hope she avoids the big names among the 17/24 seeds. Playing Bondarenko would be perfect .

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

I figured she got injured in her match with Fran. She should regroup and be able to play well at the AO. I hope she can make a run here, she has no points to defend.

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

Too bad she lost early and cuz of injury. But at least now she has plenty of time to rest recover and focus on Melbourne.

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

I heard from well informed journalists that there is no fear for Marion. We have to wait for AO draw.

You're an enigma Lighter. You'll be at home here at TMR.

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

I am not an enigma. I am just a lucky french who live in a sunny location. And as french, it is easier for me to know what is going on ? Who know who ? Concerning Marion, I know that Alain Deflassieux from "l'équipe" is close to her and her father. He is always very well informed. And yesterday, I listened him on a french radio speaking about Marion and the other french tennis players.

If you want to listen Alain Deflassieux, here is the link for podcast (January 9th) :
http://podcast.rtl.fr/carrementsport.xml
You can use itunes for example. If you want more details, ask me.

Moreover, this radio rtl-l'équipe features commentary of all matchs.

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

Nobody to talk about Marion's draw in Australia?

Here it is :

(8) V.Williams vs Yan
Pin vs Qualifier
Ferguson vs Qualifier
(31) Mirza vs Tulyaganova

(24) Li vs Brémond
Camerin vs Wheeler
Johansson vs Qualifier
(10) Bartoli vs Arvidsson

I don't like this draw at all ... Her first two rounds are quite correct, even though Arvidsson is said to be in good form for having beaten Elena Dementieva. But then Na Li is the in-form girl with Lindsay .. what a bad luck to face her, she is a very difficult opponent to play as she takes the ball so early & is so fast ... She will obviously manage to take advantage of Marion's powerful shots, I'm sure of that. This is a kind of revenge for not playing Fed Cup ^^, she just couldn't avoid China it seems!
I hope she can reach the 4th round as she wanted, to have a rematch with Venus .
Allez Marion, you're a top 10 girl, don't forget that!

Re: Kangoo-Marion in Australia!

Hey Iceland

Reading about the new courts was quite interesting...faster than Wimbledon but a little bit below Flushing Meadows.

I think we've all got our fingers crossed for that 4th round match with Venus. That would be great. Getting there, hopefully Marion can wrap up the first two matches in straight sets. After winning Gold Coast, Li didn't play this week, so maybe if Camerin or most probably Bremond can take a set, I think it would make Li's progression 'interesting'.

I spose we're all a bit in the dark. The preparation and build up was very impressive, but noone could have forseen the time out against Schiavone and (according to sport365.fr) having to return with a strapped thigh.
