Re: Marion's grace on grass

Wow Marion & Ana will be unseeded for this tournament.
Anyway a good Marion can defeat anyone who doesn't have a great serve on grass which means that we shouldn't be afraid of Jankovic, Dementieva, Wozniacki etc. I just pray she finds her form. She hasn't had a good tournament since Stuttgart. In addition she has SF pts to defend.

Re: Marion's grace on grass

i think this is decision time for marion in terms of her grass season - last year she made the SF in a year that wasn't so great form wise - is it crazy to think that if she finds form here she can win? I don't know but i'd love to see it!

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

Re: Marion's grace on grass

If Vera is gonna pull out she should do it before the seeds are announced.

Re: Marion's grace on grass

A good quarter draw for Marion compared to other players, especially french :

Jankovic - Chakvetadze
Dulko - Bartoli
Bammer - Keothavong
Medina Garrigues - Azarenka

Re: Marion's grace on grass

The second round match for her is making me drool already. I'd love to see her beat both of those, and its a good chance for Marion to wallop Jelena again. Couldve done without Vika, but does anyone know how she is on grass? I dont know so im not sure what to expect.

Re: Marion's grace on grass

Good draw. I'm confident she can beat Gisela, and if she can beat 07 Jelena, current Jelena shouldn't be a problem. That's as far ahead as I will look.

Re: Marion's grace on grass

Love the draw! Dulko won't be that easy though, she has nice touch when she wants.
Allez Baba!

Re: Marion's grace on grass

Cannot wait for the next 3 weeks!! With my 2 favourite frenchies having great draws in their respective Wimby warmups, im looking forward to watching them so much. I think if Marion makes it past Vika she would beat anyone on Elena's side of the draw, but i know, i shouldnt be looking too far forward. Hard not to optimistic though, she looks great from the pictures. And if Jeremy plays as well as he can then he should win his tournie too!!
