Re: HOW is Marion doing this???

Uh, well, her ball is bouncing low and she's moving Henin around and is predicting the ball well and getting there on time. Oh, and she's in the ZONE 8)
Go Marion!

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

but what of the lauded henin return game?

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Re: HOW is Marion doing this???

She's hitting close to the lines and making Justine running from corner to corner, pretty much like what Lindsay did back in the days.

Re: HOW is Marion doing this???

The same way Hingis and Seles do it when they're playing well. She takes it earlier and hits it deeper than her opponent. Even someone like Henin, with tremendous pace and topspin on her shots, will find it difficult to cope with such constant pressure and court positioning.

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

-- Legend, shortly before crushing Vulturepova

Re: HOW is Marion doing this???

i don't care who you are return wise... 80% on 1st serve puts a lot of pressure on ur opponent.

Re: HOW is Marion doing this???

Playing high percentage and consistent tennis. Moving Henin around and retrieving well for someone who doesn't have stellar movement and hits with both hands off both wings. Also taking advantage of Henin's breakdown.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: HOW is Marion doing this???

Justine's not playing smart tennis, and Bartoli is taking full advantage, she's completely outplaying Justine! Very impressive. Not enough to win the title, but sure to give Justine a well deserved ass spanking (if she doesn't get her act together).
