Re: Clay :scared:

Solid win : 6-3 6-2. Marion was 0-2 down in 2nd set with game points each time. Her 2nd serve is really powerful. Hope she can improve 1st ball %age next match.

Re: Clay :scared:

Excellent win considering Benesova qualified and took her to 3 both times they played last. Massive amount of winners too!

Re: Clay :scared:

Today, in newspaper, she explains that it's not the end of world. RG clay is much more quicker and one slides less. Madrid and Stuttgart are the worst surfaces for her.

Re: Clay :scared:

A funny story : she practiced between Charleston and Stuttgart in her home club in France on clay indoor with a young guy who get a famous name in tennis world. In fact, She played many times with Thibault Forget, Guy Forget's youngest son.

Re: Clay :scared:

Madrid draw out :

(11)Francesca Schiavone (ITA) v Qualifier
Shahar Peer (ISR) v Polona Hercog (SLO)
Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL) v Anabel Medina Garrigues (ESP)
(7)Marion Bartoli (FRA) v Sorana Cirstea (ROU)

Imo, it's a good draw in order to check preparation level on clay.

Re: Clay :scared:

Tricky first two rounds. Take it one match at a time here. A quick, low bouncing court though, should suit Marion more.
