I'm confident in your information. You know, i was doubful about Stanford for some reasons. But knowing that she came back to practice two days ago, i thought that she could be OK for Stanford.

But now Toronto WC has more sense and she confirms that she wants to be as fresh at US Open as she was in Wimbledon.

I remember that her physio spoke about this light injury. That's why he said she was ready at 99% for the semi. She confirms that she wanted to play Stanford.

Ok for the light injury. May be it's true, not sure !
Elle a probabement raison de reprendre tranquillement un cycle d'entrainement après ses 2 folles semaines mais je suis un peu frustré de ne pas la voir jouer à Stanford, un de ses tournois fétiches où le tableau était très ouvert cette année.
Je voudrais qu'elle assure sa qualif aux masters le plus tôt possible ... car avec Marion tout peut basculer très vite !

L'histoire de la contracture est vraie puisque son kiné en a parlé avant la demie face à Flipkens. Le problème, c'est que celui-ci n'est pas dispo avant l'US Open. Et elle ne veut plus voyager sans kiné (fed cup+ Wimbledon : aucun set perdu). Donc, je pense qu'elle prend son temps pour peaufiner sa logistique. Il lui faut aussi régler le problème des chaussures avec lesquelles elle souffre trop souvent d'ampoules. Et surtout effectuer un gros travail physique pour être prête à NYC.

J'aurais aussi bien aimé qu'elle joue Stanford. Mais bon, elle doit savoir ce qu'elle fait.

Re: Us Open Series

Reading Marion's last tweets, she seems to be in a good mood.

Re: Us Open Series

Hello Lighter

Thanks for all the stuff you do. Do you have an opinion/idea on how long Marion will keep on playing and when she is likely to retire? Also, is she as nice and pleasant as she seems?

Marion said that 2016 OG in Rio is a goal. I suppose that she will play as long as she remains competitive. But she won't accept a big down in tennis level.

I never spoke to her, i just saw her playing. So, it's difficult for me to say if she's pleasant or not. But every people who have met her during career said she's very friendly and open minded. I know that she has a good relation with most of males and females french players (Gael, Richard, Jo, Gilles, Julien Benneteau, Nicolas Mahut, etc.....).
On the contrary, her father has been more suspicious. But it's quite logical. Tennis pro is a wild world. And his job has always been to protect her from liars and dreams retailers.

For example : http://www.larep.fr/loiret/sports/ac...n-1619611.html
« Mais je garde de son dernier passage officiel chez nous un excellent souvenir : Marion, c’est une fille simple, souriante, abordable, qui dit bonjour à tout le monde, parle aux gens, et ne se prend pas la tête… » Olivier Bernon n’en dissimule rien : le contact avec le père de Marion Bartoli, Walter, était lui réduit aux seules civilités. « C’est bien simple, même si je suis prof de tennis moi aussi, je n’ai jamais pu échanger avec lui. Quand Marion allait vers les gens, il la ramenait à lui… »

And some of us are french frogs. No news from Corsican frog, except that Sorana Cirstea and Tamira Pascek, who're yet in Stanford will be pleased to see new Wimbledon queen in Toronto.

It seems that Marion is practicing in north of France. She watched a friendly soccer match of her team in Lens the day before yesterday. And she said that she has practiced not far from Lens (Paris, Marcq en Baroeuil, .....). Some pics can be seen on twitter.

Re: Us Open Series

Spotted the same day in Paris with Gilles Simon. So, she's practicing not far from Roland Garros.
