You already read this article : http://www.women365.fr/sport/actuali...out-des-on-dit

So, we can be confident. I guess she'll give all the best she could.

This Woman365 site gets a lot of Bartoli news. What is Woman365, is it known in France?

Re: Tokyo hotel before European indoor

She's following pretty much the same path as last year. Tier 1's are a given.

Your feeling that she will contest her position as French number 1 all the way to Quebec if need be, is interesting.

She didnt play Bell Challenge last year, even though she was titleholder.

Re: Tokyo hotel before European indoor

le titre me fait rire ^^ superbe, lighter

I can't wait for Tokio to start now, I really hope Marion will reach a final or something in the indoor season, but i really just hope that she stays healthy and is still playing well for AO next year so not another first round loss!

and that article was really great, finally explaining why she didn't play as well at the start of this year and such. also the picture of her is beautiful there.

BARTOLI, Marion ♠ CORNET, Alizé ♣ MLADENOVIC, Kristina ♥ GARCIA, Caroline

Glad to see you can laugh although I'm sorry that half of your name's amalgam,Alicia Molik,announced her retirement.Alicia had her moment that CAN'T be taken away from her when she won a medal for Australia at the Athens Games.She seemed like the type who could plop down on the couch with you and watch Aussie Rules Football while loving every minute of it(and I mean that in the PLATONIC sense in case there are any jealous readers of this post...hint,hint)Alicia never faced Marion in singles but I get the sense that she and our Queen would have hit it off fairly well as doubles partners or practice-hitting friends.

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

I wonder how successful she will be this year... She has the game to do extremely well indoors. Her flat strokes, her power and her accuracy will take another dimension, she will be even harder to beat I would say. I remember that last year when Marion had to retire against Tatiana in Zurich, Tati said that she was really struggling with Marion's powerful strokes on this surface, she didn't allow her to construct her game!

I think that Marion should particularly focus on Tokyo (normal hard court I would say), Zurich and Linz. This is where she should have the most expectations. I wouldn't mind if she skips Moscow I have to say, the surface there is really terrible. It is too slow and Marion will tire herself a lot to stay aggressive all the time which is the key part of her game. Hence the fact that Stuttgart and Moscow were the only disappointing results in last year's fall - I forget about Kolkata on purpose ^^.

She might indeed add Québec or ask for a WC there but only if she didn't play well before I would say or to gain points before YEC if by miracle she is still close to qualify .

I understand it's fast and low like USO.

For sure Marion can win an indoor title this autunm/winter. With no wind to contend with, it lends well to line accuracy.

Re: Tokyo hotel before European indoor

Marion is not seeded this time :

(6) Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) - (WC) Aiko Nakamura (JPN)
Maria Kirilenko (RUS) - Marion Bartoli (FRA)
Q - Nadia Petrova (RUS)
(2) Ana Ivanovic (SRB) - bye

Draw not so easy. But she has no choice. Except Williams sisters, all the best players are in Tokyo.

First mission : To defeat Maria Kirilenko
