Marion and Jana's American Adventure (IW/Miami)

OK so it's been a very disappointing start to season, and we're all a bit confused and down in the dumps about all things Marion.

But let's give her a break, she showed signs of peaking against Wozniacki in Dubai.

Has had an amazing March then past 3 years, and of course who can for get last years Miami.

QF/SF points will come off here, so she actually has a lot of work to do stay top 15.

Can Mauresmo be the spark she needs?

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

Re: Marion and Momo's American Adventure (IW/Miami)

The new coach is Jana Novotna's girl friend who already made some training sessions with Marion in Dubaï.

So no news on mauresmo? She looks like she's doing well with novotna's gf. I wonder Jana will actually be involved too.

Re: Marion and Momo's American Adventure (IW/Miami)

Good win but the next match will be very testing. But Marion didnt play great in Doha and still made them tight.

Very excited about these new coaches!!

Re: Marion and Jana's American Adventure (IW/Miami)

I'm glad she got a full time coach. Only time will tell whether Novotna and girlfriend are right for her, but I'm very hopeful. Great pic you found Lighter. She looks very relaxed.

Now she needs to get revenge on Kuznetsova, for complaining about how she returns, after Kuzzy WON the match!

Re: Marion and Jana's American Adventure (IW/Miami)

Interview today in l'équipe printed edition :
- Some parents in Switzerland have asked her dad to teach tennis and he is already very busy
- As expected, she wants to improve her slice, dropshots and 2nd serve with more kicked effect
- jana is coaching on court, Iwona organizes drills, Xavier Moreau is the fitness coach and Momo the advisor

Re: Marion and Jana's American Adventure (IW/Miami)

I forgot yesterday run toward the net. In Dubai, she didn't expect to defeat Fran, so she wasn't ready to play Kuzzy. I guess now everything is clear around her and she's feeling better and better.

R4 vs Errani lost bad to her 2 times last year, but I really really want another match up with Masha
