Re: Indian Wells & some other big US tournaments ...

It's so great that Marion won matches at Indian Wells and at least defended her points. She has little to defend for the next few weeks but then ALOT from Estoril onwards. So please Marion take confidence from this past week and get as many points as you can.

Re: Indian Wells & some other big US tournaments ...

I'm quite satisfied of Marion's form, she still struggles with her confidence in the tough times (especially at closing a set ) but at least her level has really improved. She hit plenty of nice winners against Kerber.

So I hope she can keep playing this way and find more consistent results! She has a pretty good draw in Miami. She will start with Wozniacki/Pironkova in R2 & then Srebotnik. All those players are quite talented, but they are clearly beatable for Marion. The bad news is after she would have to play a big server again in the person of Venus Williams.
I am not worried if she faces Caroline, the last time, Marion was out of energy and she couldn't play her game. Caroline has nothing to hurt her, I'm sure she will go fine .
I hope she can give herself a chance to play a rematch of Wimbledon's final!! Allez!

Re: Indian Wells & some other big US tournaments ...

Hey Iceland, you're more optimistic!

I was dissapointed for her when she lost to Lindsay.

I agree that Marion can put the last match against Caro behind her.

This draw is leading to optimism though it looks good untill the moment she plays a top 10 player and then she plays Venus, which is very hard indeed.I don't know how many points she has to defend but with the form of the last tournament she can definitely reach the match vs. Venus and that means a couple of wins again and points building up her good form for the rest of the season.
I guess this gives hope for some optimism and also for Marion who should give Caroline a good beating as revenge for Dubai/Doha

Re: Indian Wells & some other big US tournaments ...

Marion wasted more GPs and goes down even more. Just pathetic, a top player should learn how to not lose to the same (bad) player twice.

Re: Indian Wells & some other big US tournaments ...

Marion broke at love just to lose her serve at love too. Down 36 14. The glorious time of her Wimbledon form is officially over.

Re: Indian Wells & some other big US tournaments ...

Wozniacki is quite talented! Her season so far 4th round: AO & Indian Wells, QF: Doha & Memphis. This makes her 11wins 4losses which is impressive in itself.

But even more so when you consider...
those 'four' are: Ivanovic, Sharapova, Davenport and Kuznetsova.

No disgrace for Marion...she should have taken the first game of the second set. Things could have been different.

The only worry I have for the game is that with such a high first serve percentage of 78% she is only winning 48% of those points.

Re: Indian Wells & some other big US tournaments ...

I get your point, but there is a difference in losing to Wozniacki and getting thrashed in less than one hour! This is why I'm becoming more and more worried for Marion. She said everything was fine before the tournament in an interview.

Re: Indian Wells & some other big US tournaments ...

Marion What's happening with your tennis?
this looks like a loss without a fight . Within an hour I heard? That's not the way tennis should be played. I've seen you fighting soo hard before why is that not happening now?If your game is in a dip that could compensate it but if your fighting spirit is also gone then it's hard to win any match you play.
CMON Marion get yourself together and never give up without a hell of a fight!!!
