Exclamation Marion Slept for 19 Hours straight in Bali!!!!!

Marion Bartoli said in her blog this week in Seoul, that in Bali one night, she fell asleep at 11:00 PM and woke up at 6:00 PM. How can a person sleep for 19 hours Maybe it's just me but that's crazy!

"Hi everyone,

I just came off the court from my second round match with Severine Brémond. We didn't know if we were going to play indoors or outdoors, or if we were going to play today at all. The rain would stop and start and it was getting really boring. All I usually do during these delays is try and eat some food and look for relaxing things to do to keep my mind off the rain. But we did get to play in the end, and it was a very tough match. We both played really well. She played a lot of drop shots, so I had to run a lot and focus, and I'm happy to get through in straight sets, 76(1) 61. The first set was close but it was a little easier in the second.

I remember playing Severine in some French tournaments a long time ago, not on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour or ITF Women's Circuit. I was younger than her and she'd always beat me. Then, I beat her once, in the French Championships, on clay, and we didn't play for six years, until today.

One thing I've had fun with this week is playing this game on the Nintendo DS, Cérébrale Académie (Big Brain Academy). I played it a lot last night. You have 60 seconds per category and there are five categories: think, memorize, analyze, compute and identify. The better answers you have and the quicker you give them, the better score you have. Last night I broke the record of the master of the game! Once you are done, it gives you the weight of your brain. The master of the game has one kilogram, 69 grams; I got more than two kilograms!

I'm playing late tomorrow so I'm quite lucky, because I played pretty late tonight. Now I'm gonna go back to the hotel, get ready and get a nice dinner, then probably get lots of sleep tonight. I sleep a lot - usually 10-12 hours a night. A few weeks ago in Bali, when I got there the first day, I went to bed at 11pm on Friday night and woke up at 6pm on Saturday. That's about 19 hours. And when I got up I looked around and it was still night-time.

Tomorrow I play Akiko Morigami, who, like me, is a double-handed player on both sides. We played once a few years ago. I'll think about my tactics tomorrow, when I'm warming up, just to not put too much pressure on myself. I like to stay relaxed before a match.

Talk to you after the match!

Marion"

If you dropped a t you could pretend to be the grandson/granddaughter of Mireille. A claim to fame no less!

It's bad for one's blood-pressure to sleep less than 7 or more than 8 hours a night. Not to mention a sheer waste of a significant percentage of one's life.

I'm generally a 6 hour sleeper but if I get burned out or skip a whole night I could sleep up to 14 hours.
