Easy win : 6-0 6-3

Amazing 1st set with many winners.Problems with 1st serve during 2nd, but good tactic in playing Galina's FH.

Re: Last matches on hard before clay season : Monterrey and Besançon

Despite problems on serve, a new straight win : 6-4 6-3

And why not a double match if necessary with Kristina Mladenovic

Re: Last matches on hard before clay season : Monterrey and Besançon

Hopefully the tie won't be decided with the doubles, given that Shvedova is a 2 time slam champ.

It would be pretty gutting to lose the tie after Marion won both her singles matches.

Schnyder Jankovic Petrova Kvitova Schiavone

Zvonareva Kleybanova Mattek-Sands Strycova

Niculescu Lisicki Razzano Koukalova Errani Pironkova

Baltacha (RIP) Robson Watson Gent Konta and the rest of the Brits

Now we know. Marion was ready to play in case of decisive double.

Re: Last matches on hard before clay season : Monterrey and Besançon

It would have been her first women's doubles match since Wimbledon 2007

And now the clay season begins

Re: Last matches on hard before clay season : Monterrey and Besançon

hi everyone,

so happy Marion changed her mind and decided to play fed cup. Thank God she was there to save France for another shameful loss.

Lighter do you know what's Marion next programm? is she preparing herself for the clay season?is Caroline Garcia going to train with her? she was on the Istanbul entry list and not anymore now

Bravo Marion once again

Next tournament is Estoril where she will be seed 1. So, next week is for practicing on clay, probably in Divonne les bains (her french club).
Concerning Caroline, i saw her on $50K Istanbul entry list 2 days ago. You said she withdrew. I know that Walter Bartoli discussed with Caroline's father today. So an agreement for a practice together is possible as they live not very far one from the another (Lyon for Caroline and Tartegnin for Marion). But it's only pure speculation.

Re: Last matches on hard before clay season : Monterrey and Besançon

thanks for the infos. I know Walter gives Caroline's father some advices, he did it already last year at Seoul if I remember well

Caroline has a lot of admiration for Marion, would be great if she can learn from her

In l'équipe printed edition, Sophie Dorgan wrote that Walter Bartoli was very happy and applaused at the end of the .......double match.

Surprised that there was no questions to Marion about the future. Many questions about ties, but nothing about next week. Hope to read something about it in l'équipe tomorrow.
I know that Caroline is also on Estoril entry list. But it will be difficult to enter Qualies. She needs many withdrawals.

Re: Last matches on hard before clay season : Monterrey and Besançon

As expected, a long article in l'équipe printed edition. But it's all about new ambitions of the team with Marion as leader and Momo as captain. Alizé and Caroline explain how hard Marion is hiting the ball and how accurate is her preparation. And Momo to say that in limoges she was not ready (between the lines i understand that it's difficult to win if you don't have a natural leader during practicing and during the matches). And this time, Marion showed to the other girls without any agressivity what means intensity of a top 10 player during practicing.
Fusai and Di Pasquale are now more optimistic.

And also as expected, nothing about new practice organization.
