$200K and 600 points for Rezai. What did Marion get?

Re: Asian Deams : To Be Or Tokyo Beijing Osaka

If she didn't feel like she could play/win through the pain, there was no point in continuing, I guess.

Re: Asian Deams : To Be Or Tokyo Beijing Osaka

sometimes I think she is too clinical in her thinking, she doens't have the instinct to fight on, she just sees the situation as; aravane is playing well to come back from 35 down and i just hurt my calf, i might as well retire because there's no way I'll win. Sort of like what's the point of playing if I can't be assured at least a little of a victory.

Re: Asian Deams : To Be Or Tokyo Beijing Osaka

She's fought back from a set down before. This match meant too much to just casually retire after losing the first set.

I agree with you.
She can't forget her little aches, it totally gets into her mind. She didn't even try to fight more, I think that's what is disappointing.
On the other hand she looked spent physically yesterday so there was no doubt that she was in pain.

The good point is now that she is 11th she'll be able to play as many International tournaments as she wants to
This has been a wonderful season, allez Babs.

Re: Asian Deams : To Be Or Tokyo Beijing Osaka

This is horrible. I hope that she's not seriously injured, because I'm sure that she wouldn't have retired in the final, with so much at stake, if she could have continued playing.

It's really heart breaking. I feel so bad for her to end her season like this, even though it was a good season overall.

Re: Asian Deams : To Be Or Tokyo Beijing Osaka

Don't wanna jump to conclusions:Sometimes,Marion is like a Viking warrior princess,and other times she seems to just quit.A few months ago,I accused Ivanovic,one of my faves,of quitting vs. Venus at Wimbledon,exaggerating a basic leg cramp by calling it a 'serious muscle tear'.In THAT case,though,both Ana and her manager gave several conflicting statements afterwards...as if they couldn't get their stories/lies co-ordinated...PLUS Ana's attitude sucked as she essentially quit on the entire SEASON.In Marion's case,I can't decide right now with a clear head...so I'll just hope that she builds on this year's strong points.I still feel that she's capable of taking a Slam someday if things break well for her........and,yeah,I'm still looking for that Marion-Vera match if anyone knows anyone else who has it

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: Asian Deams : To Be Or Tokyo Beijing Osaka

I haven't found the Vera match, Bruce. She will finish the year at number 11, so she'll be able to defend her title in Mexico, I hope.

Please keep your eyes open,though;if you hear anything...or run into anyone who's known for having matches...then remember that financial compensation is being offered.

Monterrey has a well-earned rep as a pricey town,but I'm on the spot now;I've GOT to go see Marion next year or I'll look like a lousy fan,right?I'm gonna post some pics in the thread if I'm lucky enough to catch Marion on the grounds.I think she'd be surprised to hear French there so she might turn around to find out who spoke to her...THEN I'll try to persuade her that I'm doing this for my Scottish gf,her biggest fan,Super M....That's my plan for right now.....
