Re: Tokyo hotel before European indoor

I think Marion can at least get to the quarters with that draw.

Re: Tokyo hotel before European indoor

I prefer this draw compared to Alizé or Amélie's ones. Kirilenko is a good player, but Marion, now, must defeat her.

You've already correctly stated that there ARE no easy paths to advance deeply in this draw.I'm NOT gonna make any editorial comments about Kirilenko except to say that she's been losing in the 1st Round of virtually EVERY tourney lately.Yes,she IS talented but she seems to lack intensity and focus much of the time.I suspect that Makiri gets distracted during matches by worrying over whether or not she remembered to pack her favorite stuffed animal for the trip.Marion is 3-1 lifetime H2H though 2 of those wins came via injury retirement....I wonder if these stunning European gals will share a kiss at the net following the match.......

....Oops,got distracted there for a moment....I won't look any further than the following round at this stage.I'd classify Nakamura's odds of beating Radwanska as 'remote',which means that Aga would be Marion's 2nd-round foe.She's NOT overpowering but she is IMPRESSIVELY poised for her teenage years and often shows good game management.H2H???She came back from an opening-set bagel to stomp Marion in Stuttgart in 2007...0-6,6-2,6-1...and then won in straights in Eastbourne this year.Marion MIGHT be able to power her off the court yet it'll require fit health and accurate hitting from our Corsican/French Queen

Re: Tokyo hotel before European indoor

Well that's a tough draw. If Marion plays well, she should indeed overpower Kirilenko quite easily. Anyway I can't be objective when it comes to this Russian girl. I have never seen any talent in her, for me, she lacks power, inspiration and consistency. She has only been good in Tier IV this year so she shouldn't give Marion much trouble.

Then Aga ... This is true talent. But we'll see that a bit later. Each match at a time (but I believe in Marion's chances to take the title ). Marion is fresh and motivated in this last part of 2008 unlike Ana, Jelena or Dinara who seem mentally pretty tired...

Re: Tokyo hotel before European indoor

Dont go there. The Lisicki net pic was bad enough.

Anyway, let's hope Makiri has a few photo shoots booked for Wednesday, in Europe.

I totally agree with Iceland. Sorry to JimM, but Makiri strikes me as a disinterested player.

She has won 4 titles this year, but has still managed to fall about 10 places in the rankings since May.

Re: Tokyo hotel before European indoor

She's the only one not on the official photo. As the match will start soon, I'm sure she left the ceremony in order to sleep.


The only photo I found with Marion
