That's right. But during a chat this evening , Nathalie Dechy spoke about Marion two times :

Helene : Quelle joueuse française pourrait gagner un Grand Chelem ?
Nathalie Dechy : Je pense que Marion n'était pas loin à Wimbledon et qu'elle joue très très bien sur gazon. Alizé devrait faire partie des favorites sur Roland-Garros dans peu de temps.

Passing : Que pensez vous de la non participation de Bartoli en fed cup ?
Nathalie Dechy : C'est dommage, ça serait un plus si elle était dans l'équipe.

Re: Dubaï or not DubaÏ, that's the question

Patrice Dominguez's radio comments on RTL L'équipe (9/02/2009) :
He really wants to convince Marion to come back. He confirms that he's still in contact with her father. But he criticizes her not to play Paris.
But he also said that some players have had some problems with her and are not ready to accept her come back inside French team.

Re: Dubaï or not DubaÏ, that's the question

Very interesting interview from Arnaud Di Pasquale who is also Marion's agent :

http://www.opengdfsuez.com/tips.php?...12&language=fr

about Marion :
"J'étais à l'Open d'Australie, j'ai regardé Marion Bartoli dont je m'occupe et qui est allée en quart de finale, j'ai assisté à plusieurs de ses matches et on voit des choses. C'est quand même surprenant, il n'y a forcément pas les mêmes qualités physiques que chez les hommes. Ce ne sont pas les mêmes frappes, c'est différent."

Sugiyama shouldn't be a problem.

Poor record against Schivaone, lost to Dellacqua last time they played in.

In Zvonareva's quarter

Except if Serena withdraw, Zvo will be replaced by Venus.

I saw Serena this afternoon in Paris who explained why she retired. She walked without any problems. So, we have to wait now.

Serena i'm sure retired to save herself for Dubai.

Re: Dubaï or not DubaÏ, that's the question

Marion is playing exceptionally well. I'm sure the second set will be closer, but that was a dominant first set (6-0). This fitter, faster Marion looks dangerous. I don't think Ai has an answer.
