US/Canada Swing (D-Day)

Well, after the complete disaster of the past few months, I think this is the part of the season that will decide whether Marion can cling onto a top 10 spot and challange in the race. Theres practically no other top 25 player in Stanford, (Serena will surely pull out) and only a few in San Diego, and then a lot of tired players not used to the surface in Montreal, which is traditionally one of Marions best tournaments. Cinci and NY to follow, I presume no New Haven for her. She really cannot afford any bad or early losses here. She really should take the Stanford title. I hope.

Stanford draw will be out later I think.

Re: US/Canada Swing (D-Day)

There really is no excuse for her not to make the final here. If serena withdraws or tanks i expect nothing less but the title

Re: US/Canada Swing (D-Day)

Straightforward R2, Stephens/Watson could be tricky but she shouldnt lose to them and Wickmayer is her pidgeon I think. The other quarter on her half looks even easier. Her record in the past 3 years is 13-2, lets hope she finds some form again, these could be easy points.

Re: US/Canada Swing (D-Day)

She will play US college Mallory Burdette R2. We will see how she feels. I suppose that her dad has locked everything around her in order to recover high level. They tried something new. It didn't work. At least they tried.

Re: US/Canada Swing (D-Day)

Some tweets about it

Sampras marveling at Bartoli's swing volleys. "How do u do that?" "U want me to teach u?" He's looking at her like she's a freak of nature.

Bartoli is absolutely crushing her returns, much to Pete's bewilderment/amusement

When Serena asked Marion if she could hit w/ Pete Sampras instead, "Serena, for once, let me beat you in something. I'm hitting w/ him."

Re: US/Canada Swing (D-Day)

The players left in her half:

Erakovic
Vandewedge
Wickmayer (Marion's pigeon)
U. Rad
Burdette

She's been practicing with Sampras, no excuses to not reach the final.

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.
