Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

If she plays like in Madrid on a quick clay, Marion can do something for R1 and R2 (Kr Pliskova or Q). Hope she will play on monday under a sunny day.
R3 : Flipkens, Pennetta or Schiavone.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

I lately read Marion's dad interview on l'équipe (last thursday). There is many information including core of current Marion's problem : as it is written in newspaper, i guess that i can speak of it. In fact, it seems that her parents couple situation is floating. And Marion probably has felt guilty of that. Gerald Brémond even spoke about a divorce process. But Walter didn't confirm.

It can explain why she has decided to look after a new coach. It seems that Marion found too expensive Novotna experience. And concerning Brémond, Walter didn't understand why he left.

Today, it's a day by day situation between them.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

Funny story in l'équipe yesterday. Marion's presser should have been held on friday. But no Marion. Presser was postponed every hour before to be cancelled. In fact, WTA was looking for Marion everywhere and didn't find her. In fact, Marion was just in player lounge.

Presser was finally organized yesterday : http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/Actuali...-donner/373636

As i wrote in a previous post, she explains that she needs to win R1 and R2 in order to get confidence.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

Marion has maybe found a new sparring partner : Thomas Drouet

Thomas Drouet is the previous Bernard Tomic's sparring partner, knocked down by Tomic's father in Madrid.

In fact, after Madrid incident, Thomas read in newspaper that Marion was looking for a sparring partner. As he has known her since they were kids (they both played national championships U16), he called Marion who accepted to try. And Thomas confirmed that it's more calm with Bartoli's family than with Tomic's one. And he appreciates. And he seems very positive. He feels that Marion's hitting are improving day after day, especially between saturday and sunday. And if it doesn't work this time, he's sure that it will work very soon.

It's good to know.

Thomas Drouet (right) with Monaco davis cup team :

Wish I could send a to Marion.

Marion, 1st position on Philippe Chatrier tomorrow before Djoko. But don't know if she'll play at the right time. Forecasts are very bad at the beginning before an improvement in the afternoon.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

Still raining on Paris. Maybe start at 12:30 PM.

On radio roland garros, big debate on Marion with former pros Camille Pin and Sophie Amiach. Camille confirmed that Marion's practices are two times more intense than for other players. And Sophie Amiach said that Marion was too exhausted before to play 2011 semi vs Fran. She was at her practice the day before and it was too intense for her.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

Looks like play is suspended again.

I was fearing the worst in the first set, but a good fight back from Marion to win it.

Score is 7-6, 2-1, Marion serving.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

7-6, 4-6, 7-5

Thrilling for the neutrals, I'm sure. I found it so very painful. But she won

I choose to look at the positives. When Govortsova was serving for the match, she threw herself into returning every ball out wide. And she hit some very clutch return winners, and second hits. That game was the most important, so it's encouraging to get a glimpse of the level of intensity she's capable of.
