Bartoli Comments about Serena Match

I'm ready to play this match because when I saw the draw I said this is one I wanted to play, said Bartoli, who lost to Serena the only time they played back in 2003. I committed myself to be there, and now I am, and I'm going to show everyone how hard I can be to beat. It's Serena. It's New York. It might be in Ashe Stadium and primetime, and it's the one you are practicing for. I've had three really good matches, and I'm ready to face her. It's going to be different this time. I'm playing really well now, and I can definitely give her a hard time.

I don't believe that Bartoli said that, but can anyone confirm this?

Re: Bartoli Comments about Serena Match

Does she mean different than their 2003 Miami match?

I don't know...i don't even know if she really said this...I think they played at Miami in 2003 after Bartoli had won the U.S. Open juniors.

Re: Bartoli Comments about Serena Match

If this is what she said, good for her. Having confidence and knowledge of your own game and self is very important. The match will speak for itself.

And about the comment... I'm happy that she is excited to play Serena. Hopefully we'll see a competitive match.

Re: Bartoli Comments about Serena Match

It's funny how everybody seems to be SURE Bartoli will get demolished by Serena.
I am not saying Bartoli will win, but Wimbledon was only a couple months ago - NOBODY thought she could beat Jankovic + Henin, and everybody was stunned when she did... but she did.
Since her 4th round in RG, she is not the same player at Slams, and she said it herself today, she feels ready for Serena.
So I wouldnt dismiss her so easily. You never know with Bartoli.

Re: Bartoli Comments about Serena Match

This will be a good match. It's good to see that Marion has confidence in herself; I didn't see anything wrong with what she said. I'm glad that she's up for the challenge. Don't think she'll win, but she can give Serena a good push.
