Your Favourite Bartoli Service Motion?

Thought I'd try and cheer you guys up a bit, as you're always so pessimistic and miserable. A thread in general discussion got me thinking on this.

What's your favourite out of Marion's many, and varied service motions? Bonus points if you can find, or upload youtube clips demonstrating as many as possible.

My preference is the one I affectionately think of as "waving the wand." It always made me think of Hermoine from Harry Potter casting a spell. Alternatively, you could call it "I dub thee Sir Pierce Brosnan"


But "Marion Bartoli Teaches Extreme Ballet" was pretty good as well. If she combined that stance with the exaggerated arm wind-up that she has done sometimes, you'd almost reach the full Ivanisevic. Or has she already done that too?

Re: Your Favourite Bartoli Service Motion?

No takers? Is it because I basically called you all a bunch of miserable buggers? I didn't really mean all of you. I really only meant Ferg No, wait I didn't mean that either. I take it all back.

Yeah, and I'm not one of them, that's for sure. I'm nothing more than a fair weather fan. Or should that be a rainy day fan?

But it certainly used to be more lively here, in the old days. I've been looking through old posts, revealing such gems as this quote from a certain Bruce Goose...

Re: Your Favourite Bartoli Service Motion?

supermarion has her blog, doesn't she? It would be tiring writing everything twice, in two places. But I've just done a search for the blog and can't find it, so is it still going?

I've seen bruce's name in the thread index, so I guess he is still around. Probably drooling over Ivanovic, or more likely, a totally new player. But come back bruce!

I mainly come here to read lighter's posts, and before that, Iceland. It's great to get news from the French press, that I couldn't otherwise read, because my French still isn't good enough. But I don't bother logging in very often, as I don't have much to say. And it did get rather depressing in these forums for a time. But I think we should try to enjoy Marion while we still have her!

Re: Your Favourite Bartoli Service Motion?

Don't worry i'm also here. It's just that i was so devastated after loss vs Makarova. I even stopped to read newspapers. I have read nothing since this defeat. Because i have known all the work she did for 2013. Good new, she will probably comeback in top 10 next week.

I'll probably go to Coubertin next week. With probably a lot of news from many medias. "Paris est actuellement en ebullition".

Re: Your Favourite Bartoli Service Motion?

I'm still here too! But as I just got a new job, I barely have time to follow tennis and let alone, post here.
As for Marion, she still is my favourite active player right now, even though I'm frustrated to death she doesn''t perform as well as I expect her to.

I agree with Bartoli's Boy, that service motion is the best one ever. Only her can invent tennis choreography!

Hey Iceland Nice to see you around here again. Let's hope the new team gets her performing like you expect!

Re: Your Favourite Bartoli Service Motion?

I miss her. She was my fav recent player. She would've fit in with the broads from the 60s & 70s. They were individuals, too, and very interesting to watch. The broads now have the most generic, boring games. Most of them can't even hit a friggen basic forehand volley. That's pathetic.

My fav Marion serve was what she used during Wimbledon. She kept it pretty simple, for her. And I LOVED that she didn't even bounce the ball before she served! How's THAT for individuality?! I wish both genders would copy that move.

It's pretty amazing that around 2011-2012 she turned her worst shot into a weapon. Most weeks she was in the top 5 for aces hit. Lot of double faults, too, but still.
