Marion is still training in Switzerland : https://twitter.com/Lolo02111979/sta...25854211846146

A swiss journalist saw her in Lausanne this morning (Stade Olympique de la Pontaise) where there are many clay courts.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

Robin Haase was complaining about the conditions already, he says its extremely difficult. That looks unplayable.

Yep Dreadful season so far. It has to get better at some point.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

So it seems the new partnership ended in failure.
Hopefully her oddity will lead her to a new unexpected solution.

Re: Marion 2013 claycourt season

When she saw draw she knew that she had no hopes but to play.
She's not yet ready to play on clay as usual. It was worst vs Rybarikova 2 years ago in Barcelona. Corswandt who was at the match said it was a good quality match. I watched some parts. And i found that she didn't take enough risks when Peng tried more to find angles.

I'm not pessimistic. Madrid clay is quicker. She just needs times to go for a more offensive game on clay.
