Marion's blog from Séoul

Saturday, September 30, 2006

Unfortunately, I lost to Eleni Daniilidou today. I'm doing okay, but things could be better. After finishing pretty late last night I got a fever after I got back to the hotel and didn't sleep well at all. I only got a few hours sleep. Playing the first match today was tough, because I've played a lot in the last few weeks. I just need some rest, and I'll see what I can do next week in Tokyo.

Eleni played really well. The surface here is a little slower than normal, which suits her game, because she uses slice a lot. The ball hardly bounces off the court. It has been a great week for her. I did my job as the No.3 seed and made the semifinals. I want to stay positive!

One of the highlights of my week was beating Severine Brémond in the second round; it meant a lot because it was an all-French match. Another thing I'm happy about is my consistency at tournaments in the last few months. I have been winning a lot of matches, including here. My results week to week are becoming more consistent. I'm enjoying being on the court and playing good tennis.

I'm excited to go to Tokyo; I'm always excited to play a new tournament the next week. It's going to be new conditions, a little quicker than here. We'll see how I recover. Hopefully I'll be okay! There are some French players heading there, from the men's side, so that will be fun.

I'm also pretty excited about my birthday, which is on Monday coming up. I am really excited to see what my present will be and to hear everyone singing "Happy Birthday!" I love cake. I really love chocolate cake. I actually make a lot of desserts myself, like chocolate, crêpes, apple pie; I also like cooking fish, meat and vegetables, but cooking deserts is my favorite. I'm making some ice cream back home too.

I want to thank you all for your support this week, and I hope I can keep improving and bring more victories. Thanks for all of your help, all the time.

Sincerely,

Marion

You mean some of them are playing Tokyo instead of Metz?

Upon checking the entry lists, there are in fact no male French players playing Tokyo. Marion, tu t'es trompée.
