Re: Clay :scared:

Marion played 100000 times better than in Brussels, I think she is back on the right track.

Re: Clay :scared:

Expected this so dont really care, Im glad that clay is finished now and she can get some rest, prepare for grass. She should take a WC to Birmingham. Still, another win or two would have been nice. Its a relief its just out of the way.

That thread was ridiculous The two main offenders are probably the worst trolls on TF this year though, you cant take them seriously.

Re: Clay :scared:

Disappointing clay season, but she had an excellent start to compensate, hopefully she can get another great grass season and pick it up during US hardcourts.

Re: Clay :scared:

Yea she can get points on the USO hard court season becasue she doesn't have much to defend and she has always done well at eastbourne so that will give her confidence for Wimbledon.

Re: Clay :scared:

Hope she can defend the majority of her points on grass, I'd be happy with a F at Eastbourne and QF at Wimbledon, not taking possible tough opponents into account.

As for hardcourts, she has an advantage, more practice and match practice on hardcourts while the other top players stay on grass for the Olympics.

Re: Clay :scared:

Great fighting spirit from Marion, she almost managed to turn things around whereas Martic was clearly the better and smarter player today.
She will have enough time to fix this serve and get in better shape. I don't think she was as toned as she was last year, I remember she was able to keep up in rallies better.
I hope she stays positive, she is good enough to stay in top 10 despite her poor slam record this year.
Keep working hard Baba!
