Re: Us Open Series

She beat Davis 6-0, 6-3 Not a bad first match back after her break! Very focused performance.

Re: Us Open Series

Well done, Marion! Good first match.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Good 1st set. But seems a little bit tired at the end. No energy. Not yet at 100%. Probably work hard on fitness for US Open. Rybarikova next who's on fire after Washington title.

Lauren's serve was probably too slow for ROS. Many balls in the net.

Re: Us Open Series

^ Thanks!
What impresses me is reduced warm up moves since grass season. She's likely to keep that attitude.
With better scheduling, I expect one more deep run within 2 years.

Re: Us Open Series

Seemed quite nervous at the start, lots of fistpumps to herself but settled in pretty well. Next match should give us more of a sense of where she is mentally.

Agree with you. I didn't like those lost rallies at the end of the match, probably due to humidity she doesn't like. Balls are flying a lot more than in a dry place. She explained that "ces errements allaient ętre corrigés derechef"

Errements means errors. So, hope she will make less df and UE (20 during 2nd set is huge for her) vs Magdalena.

Re: Us Open Series

Marion retired with an abdominal injury or something.

Re: Us Open Series

The WTA site said an abdominal strain. It's very unlucky, because the first set could have gone either way and she would still have been in the match. It's just one of those things. Hopefully it's nothing too bad...

There was a strange moment in the first set where she needed a new racquet, but for some reason had only brought one onto court. So Rybarikova allowed Marion to borrow one of her racquets, temporarily. It was very sporting of her, because Marion would have gotten a point penalty for leaving the court, I think.
