Off Season + Australia - 2013

Marion will play Shenzhen MM in the first week, the top 8 seeds are:

1.Li
2.Bartoli
3.Jankovic
4.Hsieh
5.Zakopalova
6.Peng
7.Robson
8.Jovanovski

If she's playing MM's she needs to make at least the final.

I'm praying she will be playing Sydney as well, the WTA tournament I visit every year

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

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

As expected, no agreement between Marion and Amélie Mauresmo :

It's easy. Problems remain the same. Marion requests to be prepared physically by her dad during fed cup weeks. And Amélie says that it doesn't match with a team spirit. But there is no animosity at all between two of them. They are still in touch when needed. And Amélie is still open to a change. And of course, clay choice was made after their discussion in NYC.

Anyway, i also know that there is a big misunderstanding between one french staff member and her. That's why i've never thought about a comeback. That's the way it is.

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

Weird choice to begin the year. Im guessing they're offering her a lot to play here. Still, weak field so hopefully she'll open the year well. Hope she plays Sydney as well, I wouldnt be too happy with her going straight into Melbourne having not played anything in Australia.

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

Big discussion on radio this morning(RMC) about fed cup between 3 very well known coachs :
- Patrice Dominguez (former tennis pro)
- Jacques Monclar (basket ball)
- Daniel Constantini (Hand ball)
And former rugby union player and doctor :
- Serge Simon

Coachs concluded that there is no change between Escudé and Mauresmo's period, except that Amélie is still in discussion with Marion and her coach. And think that Amélie could try at least one time to let Marion managing her matches on her own.
And Serge as usual disagrees. Because rules are beyond everything even these rules are bad.

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

Dunno if some of you already read this article ? http://espn.go.com/tennis/story/_/id...-play-olympics

It clearly explains why Marion will never make herself available for fed cup without her coach. Because he is the only one to know when adjustements are needed for the next practice sessions and which drills could be changed. As he said :
"My approach is quite different, because I'm not a tennis player". For example, "The shoulder, I view in a mechanic way," he said. "The shoulder of each athlete is completely different, so you need to take care of every specific thing, purely mechanically, for each athlete."
"you know, it's very important to be confident in the way that you practice," he said. And Marion's confidence is only for her coach, and anyone else.

Maybe i'm wrong. But i'm very pessimistic. I had a hope before OG. But now, it's probably over.
She's gonna play 4 tournaments in a row (Shenzen, Sydney, AO and Paris). She wants to play more tournaments on clay in order to be ready for RG. So, no time for fed cup, especially with some people in the staff with whom she had a bad communication.
