Re: Will Marion lose the first set...again?

I'm convinced that the second set come back has been a huge part of Marion winning...the competitor gets lulled into security and then Marion attacks in the second set and they start asking themselves questions.

Yes...and the second.

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.

It's rather difficult for anyone to win a first set against Venus, even this year. So, of course. Venus will likely win the 2nd too but if Marion follows her form it'll be much more competitive.

If the 1st round losing marion turns up it could be ugly.

Re: Will Marion lose the first set...again?

Yes, she loses it on purpose so that she will gain confidence. She wants to win the hard. I think she'll be 0-5 down in the second set before she turns it on to win in three. Poor Venus, she doesn't have a chance.

Re: Will Marion lose the first set...again?

I was just about to make a thread about this... of course Marion will lose the first set, maybe 6-2, then she´ll win the next two!!



Ivanovic - Görges - Agnieszka - Li - Bencic

Venus - Kvitova - Golden Flowers - A.K. Schmiedlova - Stephens - Stosur - Woz
