Mcenroe- Bartoli has no chance in final

John gives Bartoli no chance to upset Venus. he also said Bartoli had no chance against Henin. in the semis. then she wins and now he says this. hopefully Bartoli proves this big mouth wrong again by ether winning or making it very close tomorrow!

Re: Mcenroe- Bartoli has no chance in final

Somebody give that guy (McEnroe) a Klondike bar.

They didn't give Venus much of a chance to do anything here, either, especially having to face Sharapova in the 4th round. Venus was only mentioned because they wanted to cover all the bases, just in case.

As long as Marion can get her ass on the court she has more than a chance to win.


It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?


I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!

Re: Mcenroe- Bartoli has no chance in final

Well he was just on BBC and he said not to count her out and that she had a minimal chance so, where and when did he say she had no chance?

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Whatever, John! Today proved that NOTHING is set in stone!! Of course I want Venus to win but at this point, you obviously can't underestimate Ms. Bartoli.

Nobody was writing off Venus because they knew her potential, but coming in to the 4th round she was in horrible form (like 14 doubles, 30+ errors) and so everything pointed toward a Sharapova win. They have been especially gracious of Venus and Serena this tournament.

Re: Mcenroe- Bartoli has no chance in final

He said he would have bet his house on Justine winning.

I have been totally indignant throughout this tournament the way the BBC team ignored and then dismissed Marion.

Where are the 'experts' now?

And Marion has confidence in her ability to win tommorrow.

Re: Mcenroe- Bartoli has no chance in final

Everyone, who plays tennis, has a 50% chance of winning, because you get a chance to serve and dictate your service game. The best players and the most successful players simply are those who maintain their own service games and exploits their opponents' to their advantage. So, stating the obvious, Marion has minimally an equal chance of winning as does Venus.

Re: Mcenroe- Bartoli has no chance in final

McEnroe probably also thought that she had no chance against Juju in the SF.

What are you talking about??? I am not patronizing anybody. All I stated was that for the most part, the commentators have been understanding of the situations that Venus and Serena have gone through for the past couple of years.
