Re: Us Open Series

Spotted in practice today in a tennis club close to Paris. Funny comment from the person who watched her training : "her sparring partner is going to die tough"

A big interview today on rmc. But nothing really new. She's still flying between stars. She said that she has started a new life. No concrete information about Bartoli team in Toronto.Marion wants to be ready for USO.

Re: Us Open Series

She should make the quarters here. 2 relatively easy matches and 225 points sounds pretty good get it girl.
She'll play on wednesday

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

It's easy to follow day by day Marion's adventures owing to twitter. Many pics can be seen, Marion on high heels, Marion with fans, Marion receiving presents, Marion practicing......

Nicolas Perrotte, FFT fitness coach, is with her as expected. We can see him on pics during hard drills : https://mobile.twitter.com/bartoli_marion/status/364419555398938624/photo/1

Marion doesn't forget to thank her whole team for all the jobs done.

Thomas Drouet is also in Toronto as coach on his pass. Marion met yesterday l'équipe journalist for a big interview in a taxi between hotel and stadium. She explains that she has to be at 100% if she wants to win points vs Thomas. She still doesn't have her driving licence. But it's easy for her to find drivers now (rumour that she bought a car???). And her dad is now at home in Switzerland. Amazing thing, she is disappointed not to find on internet finals video with french comments (probably due to copyright problems). I suppose that Canal + people gave her dvd with french comments the day after and she could listen Guy Forget's comments. But i'm not so sure.

Some parts here : http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/Actuali...la-meme/390921

Just after the interview, she called friends of her who are in Ibiza (probably Bob Sinclar and others).

On twitter, we can see pictures with Monica Seles and Serena. Marion is also on youtube video "WTA all access hour" at the end from 53:14

Lauren Davis will be Marion's R2 opponent.It will be 1st meeting between them. Lauren is an intriguing player as she's even smaller than Domi.

Marion was in the stands to see the match.

2nd position on central court not before 1 pm.

In Le Parisien today, Alexandra Fusai confirms that Marion started serious practice July 16th. And Thomas Drouet said yesterday that : "Elle est déjà trés au point à l'entrainement". In english, her level during practice is already good and accurate.

Hope she will confirm it vs Lauren.
