Was anyone else sad?

when Mary Carillo was talking about Dr. Bartoli's unusual training methods and how Marion is isolated on the tour? And then how the only person she had in her box was her dad?

I almost started crying. I will definitely be cheering her on from now on!

It's really depressing when you hear stories like that.

Re: Was anyone else sad?

At the start, the only person in her box was her dad, and I thought that was quite sad, but later on a few more people joined so maybe she had more there

I bet she'll get her respect now...good things happen to good people...I'm a firm believer of that...Bartoli seem like a sweet humble girl. I think she should watch some Monica Seles tapes..their game is VERY similar...she just needs to keep up what she's got going for her. I actually think she plays just as good frenchwoman Mauresmo.

Re: Was anyone else sad?

WTF? Only her Dad? Where was her mother? Sisters/brothers? Friends?



...I hate stories like this, wrench my heart. She seems like such a lovely woman. I just wanna give her a big cuddle right now

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Re: Was anyone else sad?

She implied that it must be difficult for Marion to do her unconventional training methods in front of all the other players. Like I wonder if they mock or make fun of her?

I would hope to think that at least has someone on the tour she is friends with. And I do hope that more people joined her box later. Because the sight of just her dad there was really depressing. I cheered up a little bit when they said she did have a mom but then I got sad again when Mary said she never tours with them.

Re: Was anyone else sad?

Marion is really wonderful. She seems very sweet and classy and has got game. Her baseline skills are awesome, serve improving and touch skills are above average. Her personality is pleasant.

Re: Was anyone else sad?

That is really sad she seems like such a nice girl too I hadnt ever paid attention to her until this tourney and her acceptance speech for sure made me a fan and it was really touching to see her dad crying while she talked and Richard comforting him this is kinda how the WS were when they first came on tour but at least they had each other

Her interview on court after the match and the way she was during was so nice to see


For me she is the story of Wimbledon this year

EXACTLY..she won me over too..#1 because she took out Henin lol (sorry Henin fans) #2 Her personality throughout the match...she even did the wave with the crowd, smiled and laughed at some of the audience outburst, and she was friendly to Venus (did yall catch her try at the end of the tournament playing around with Venus as if she was goign to take the trophy from her while Venus was holding it that was cute) #3 she's the underdog to Mauresmo being that her country treats her as a outsider and her game reminds me SO MUCH of Monica Seles...that I also love too.I hope she becomes a threat..and that this wasnt a one hit wonder..so keep it up Marion Seles..I mean Bartoli.

Re: Was anyone else sad?

It seems like so much hard work, but obviously it's paying off, so I don't feel bad for her. I did feel bad for her father when he started to get emotional.

Re: Was anyone else sad?

I think it's not THAT sad. I mean she surely can't afford travelling with 5 or 6 persons and what's wrong with travelling only with your dad? It's cheaper and as you see it is effective. When I play some tournaments, I always enjoy having JUST MY DAD there. My mom tends to get nervous and I can really focus when ONLY my dad is there. It is a great feeling when you can concentrate ONLY on tennis and nothing else.
She said in her interview that she's now heading home and I bet that she has some good friends at home - I mean she's such a sweet girl how can you not love her
