Who Thinks Bartoli Can Win Wimbledon?

if you look at the trend, both ana and maria was runner up in both aussie open and french open last year and got trashed by serena and justine and end up winning this year.. so do you think marion can take wimbledon?

Right now, she'd be lucky to get to the 4th round.

Re: Who Thinks Bartoli Can Win Wimbledon?

would be a huge shock...i dont really see it happening. Ana and Maria were the 2 best players of this year irrespective of how they played last year.. ana almost deserves 2 b going for 3rd slam in a row where as marion cant even beat casey on clay

Venus Williams
Sammy Stosur
Ana Ivanovic
Kimmy Clijsters
Martina Hingis
Jarmila Groth
Sharapova Dokic Wozniacki Delaqua Molik Kirilenko Dementieva Na Dani Kvitova

Re: Who Thinks Bartoli Can Win Wimbledon?

Well, if players do not perform to their potential then it is possible. The French Open opened up a lot this year. In the end, Ivanovic won...not the predicted winner by most, but not a huge upset either.

In the past, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open have not been known for surprising champions. Typically the better players always seem to win this event, so ultimately, although Bartoli may have a good run like she did last year she will eventually play someone like Venus, Serena, Sharapova, Ivanovic, Jankovic etc. etc. that are in good form and will defeat her.

Re: Who Thinks Bartoli Can Win Wimbledon?

Nope Marion can't. To win Wimbledon, you will have to beat players with a huge serve (Williams, Sharapova, Ivanovic) and lately, Marion has been unable to return properly. Casey had so many service winners and it was on clay .

Re: Who Thinks Bartoli Can Win Wimbledon?

Nope, because the things that are said here are quite true. Marion has lost in first round of the first two Slams, has barely won two matches in a row and her shape has been more suspicious than ever. Right now, she doesn't deserve her top 10 spot and I'm kind of relieved she will be out of it after Wimbledon ... unless she starts to play very well again before .
