Marions' US Summer Hardcourt Season.

Marion Time to move on from that WImbledon disaster and play amazing now again. It seems shes planning on playing an amazing 7 weeks ina row, playing at Stanford, LA, Cinncinati, Toronto and New Haven, then the US Open. The way shes playing this year im hoping she could pull off maybe 15 wins over this 7 weeks period at least, since its traditionally Marions best few weeks on tour. And seeing how well shes done for traditionally her weakest part of the year (Aus, Middle East and clay), im relatively confident of a good haul here. She has big points to defend now, 380 at Stanford, 390 at Montreal, 140 at New Haven and 280 at the US Open. But even if she doesnt do so well as she did last year in Stanford and Toronto, im very hopeful her lack of points from Cinci and LA will help her keep her ranking in the top 15. Following the US Open she has avery little to defend and a place at YEC in Dubai or Bali beckon. Stanford is a much harder field then last year but she'll be seeded 7 or 8 so with a good draw could well make the semis or final again. Looking forward to watching her play a lot now! As long as she doesnt tire herself out too much, but she'll know best herself.

Allez Marion!

Omg Marion
Hopefully she'll withdraw from a few, preferably LA and New Haven. She doesn't want to burn out before the US open.

Btw, she definitely has a place at Bali. I'd prefer a qualification at the elite YEC though. It's not out of her reach

Re: Marions' US Summer Hardcourt Season.

Yep, confirmed for Stanford, L.A., Cincy, Toronto and New Haven. New Haven isnt a particularly strong field so she might have a chance there, Wozniacki, Cibulkova, Mauresmo and Radwanska the other big names there.

Re: Marions' US Summer Hardcourt Season.

She won't play New haven to win the tournament though, Fergoli. She'll want to play one or two more matches before the big one. I'd bet any amount of money she tanked the second set to Wozniacki last year.

Re: Marions' US Summer Hardcourt Season.

I hope you will be able to see her, Alex. It's been so annoying having to wait so long to follow her results. Stanford started in the middle of July last year, so I think her finalist points will have already been removed from her ranking

Re: Marions' US Summer Hardcourt Season.

I think that's how it works, like the points go off according to when you got them the year before not when the tournament is played this year?

either way I can't wait for Marion to play!
