Marion Proves She's Not a Fluke - ONTO GRASS/WIMBLEDON!

Hey guys, onto Wimbledon/grass court tournaments! Where of course, were the sites of a large part of Marion's success! Leave the negetivity behind, and fingers crossed that we get another good run here at Wimby to turn her year around!

MARIONNNNN FOR WIMBLEDONNN.

Re: Marion Proves She's Not a Fluke - ONTO GRASS/WIMBLEDON!

I wonder if that same guy will be there who shouted "COME ON MAREEE-ONNN!!!" in the final last year. The juxtaposition of an English phrase with his attempt at pronouncing her name in a French accent cracked me up.

Re: Marion Proves She's Not a Fluke - ONTO GRASS/WIMBLEDON!

Birmingham draw is out : Marion is as expected the top seed!
http://www.lta.org.uk/Global/Downloads/Results/DFS/Singles%20Main%20Draw.pdf

She could make a pretty good run here, Cetkovska or Yuan will be the first opponent, then probably Domachowska. There are lot of ballbashers though, never good for Marion, Lisicki, Vaidisova and even Govortsova () could be threats to consider...

Thanks Iceland

She Govortsova on grass at Wimby and Vaidisova isnt in great form.

But as Marion said, she needs to prove herself again rather than riding on the back of former glories.

Good luck Marion- you're back on your fave surface (finally!)

Hope she finds the magic again this year. In Birmingham, there is no reason why she can't defend her SF points, if not go on and win the tournament. Marion should not be losing to anybody on her half that's for sure, but she needs to get her act together right from the start.

Re: Marion Proves She's Not a Fluke - ONTO GRASS/WIMBLEDON!

Well it's a tough draw!!

1r - Bye. Toughie jk.

2r - Cetkovska: Tough! She made a great run at RG defeating I think Szavay.

3r - Domachowska: Tough once again.

QF - K. Bondarenko: Extremely tough!

SF - A. Bondarenko: Toughhhh.

F - Vaidisova or Dellacqua (revenge ): Actually sounds quite easy.

Re: Marion Proves She's Not a Fluke - ONTO GRASS/WIMBLEDON!

Actually the draw changed and it does seem better, Vaidisova and her big serve are in the other part of the draw now after Safina's withdrawal. Moreover I have been told that Marta is an absolute crap on grass, same for Katya Bondarenko. Marion has to make this final now

As you pointed out, I think Bye will be her toughest opponent.
Cetkovska, as good as she did in Paris, just got double bageled.
On current form, I'd be surprised if Marta got to the R16.
If Marion gets to the QF, she's doing something right, which should be enough to dispose of K and A.

Anyway I just want her to start winning matches again. I won't be too disappointed if she loses in the QF or SF- she just needs to get there!

That's how I feel also. I am not expecting too much, too soon, I just want Marion to play well on grass.

Re: Marion Proves She's Not a Fluke - ONTO GRASS/WIMBLEDON!

Well,I'm only gonna say this once since I don't have any animosity against the thread-starters.......but I don't like the title in the sense that we shouldn't even DIGNIFY the stupid criticisms of Marion's 2007 grass-court success with any acknowledgment whatsoever.

I would've liked something simple such as:Marion Ready To Kick Ass On The Grass!!...that's just off the top of my head.Like I said,though,I'm not gonna complain about this again and I'll cheer her here with the rest of you Marionettes.

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Re: Marion Proves She's Not a Fluke - ONTO GRASS/WIMBLEDON!

Marion is trying to embarrass herself on her favourite surface, what a delicious idea !

She saved a SP in the 1st set to win it 75. A bit too close, but why not? She needed some adjustements. Generally after that you continue on your momentum to dismiss your opponent. Marion, generous as she is, offered the set to Cetkovska with a colossal waste of points on her serve (DF on GP is her favourite ). 47% of first serves also.


Down 10 in the third. Lost her serve at love.
Marion !
