Re: Marion in Stuttgart

is there such a thing as a good draw here? Its clay and a tier I, so marion was never going to be a hot favorite to win.

Re: Marion in Stuttgart

Hope for a bit of luck here I think, Marion's record against Caro is poor, but if Benesova can pull off a win against her, then perhaps Marion can advance there. Only to meet Dementieva

Marion Bartoli // Sam Stosur // Andrea Petkovic // Maria Jose

Vika Azarenka // Shahar Peer // Virginie Razzano // Caro Wozniacki// Flavia Pennetta

Re: Marion in Stuttgart

No joy intrailer, Caro in straight sets.

But like Alicia Rocks says, everything here is a tough draw, cos Stuttgart remains one of those wee posh elite tournaments featuring a strong dense 32 player main draw. But Marion is a good player too.

Re: Marion in Stuttgart

Had a look over at the Stuttgart threads in that prediction game, everyone predicting Sprem over Marion. They will get a shock.

Re: Marion in Stuttgart

YEah, Caro in straight, but on the plus side she wasn't entirely convincing. The field for Stuttgart is really good, I hope Marion can go far and shut people up for a little while.

Re: Marion in Stuttgart

I was a wee bit surprised to find that they had Sprem marginal favorite/

Marion 1/1 evens. Sprem 8/11.

Re: Marion in Stuttgart

Wow, her match wasn't on this morning when I was looking at the odds, Marion at Evens would have been a great price! I HOPE anyway, looks like this may go to a third set.

Marion Bartoli // Sam Stosur // Andrea Petkovic // Maria Jose

Vika Azarenka // Shahar Peer // Virginie Razzano // Caro Wozniacki// Flavia Pennetta

Re: Marion in Stuttgart

Nice

Every win on clay is good to take before Roland-Garros. She won't face players like Wozniacki in the first round so that's very interesting that she is beating such opponents relatively easily. Well, in the perspective of a 3rd round, I mean. I obviously expect and hope for more .
It's time to see if Caro is due to be a Zvonareva for Marion. It's hard to break her consistency and probably even harder on clay. At least it is indoors so there is no reason for Marion's serve to not work... Allez!

Marion.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Marion in Stuttgart

Good good good, she came back convincingly to win. Caro next, I think it's about time for this head-to-head record to swing in Marion's favour!

Well,if Caro IS to be another Zvonareva for our Queen,then that means that Marion must beat her AT LEAST once...as she did in the Auckland 2006 final against Vera.On grass,I'd like Marion's chances okay...on CLAY,well...is Verdasco anywhere nearby??Perhaps too much late night carousing with her older bf will take an infatuated Caro's mind off the match.Regardless,Sprem beat Marion at Wimbledon 2006 one year prior to the Dream Grass Season,so there was a smidge of vindication todayVAMONOS,MARION!!

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 in Stuttgart

When a journalist asked Marion to know if she's really fearing Caroline, she said "I've no problems with her game. It's just that when I played vs her, I wasn't competitive".

It's time for Marion to show her real level.
