Marion could miss Wimbledon

After her loss she said something like her wrist is really painful (and it's been bothering her since the French open) and that it isn't a situation where she wants to be on court.
Well, it looks like the haters won't get the satisfaction of seeing her lose her points by losing a match since it's likely she won't even get a chance to try and defend them.

BARTOLI FACING WIMBLEDON KO


Marion Bartoli is a doubt for Wimbledon after aggravating a wrist injury in her opening match of the DFS Classic in Birmingham.

The 23-year-old French number one, who was runner-up to Venus Williams at SW19 last year, was beaten 5-7 6-4 6-0 by Petra Cetkovska, of the Czech Republic, in her first match of the year on grass.

The world number 10, who was elevated to top seed at Edgbaston following the withdrawal of defending champion Jelena Jankovic, won a difficult first set against Cetkovska and then began to feel pain from the tendonitis that first flared at Strasbourg on the eve of the French Open last month.

Instead of retiring, Bartoli continued in the match but clearly had little appetite for the battle and, from 4-4 in the second set, she lost eight games in a row to crash out of the tournament.

She now looks certain to withdraw from next week's £300,000 International Women's Open at Eastbourne and admits she may have to miss Wimbledon.

"My wrist is still bothering me since the French Open," she said. "It's really painful and it's really not a situation where I want to stay on court.

"I had it in Strasbourg and it's come back. I never know how I will be when I go on court or how long it's going to be hurting.

"It was fine until the middle of the second set. It's hard if I'm not 100% to be really focused."

Bartoli added: "It seems like 2008 doesn't want me to be in great shape. I am always having illness or injury. There is always something in my body and it's hard to compete at the best level.

"It is tendonitis and it's starting to hurt more. I had the same with my knee last year.

"Missing a grand slam, especially Wimbledon, would be a huge disappointment.

"I am particularly disappointed because last year I played almost the whole year. It was only in the last two weeks that I had any problem but this year there is always something."

Bartoli's exit leaves world number 19 Nicole Vaidisova as the clear favourite to lift the Birmingham title. She booked a place in the third round with a 6-1 6-3 win over Nathalie Dechy.

If, as seems likely, Bartoli fails to make a quick recovery, her absence will be another major blow for Eastbourne, which lost world number one Ana Ivanovic earlier today due to a muscle injury.

Ivanovic, who moved top of the rankings after winning the French Open last week, pulled out of the Wimbledon warm-up event citing a right abductor problem.

The 20-year-old Serb also admits, however, that she would like a break after her exertions at Roland Garros.

Ivanovic said: "I have a problem with my abductor. I am also mentally exhausted after the French Open - I am not ready to compete so soon after winning my first grand slam."

Well then she would still lose her points.

I forgot her wrist! Hope it heals but it seems unlikely!!!

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

That's what happens when you beat Justine in the Wimbledon semi. She should've known better.

Re: Marion could miss Wimbledon

I think the fact that her game and training methods are so unorthodox is showing on her body now. Its sad cause the girl is so talented and nice, but a human's body isn't a machine. Her technique is so hard on the wrist, playing two handed on the forehand is to start with, and the fact she returns being so close to the service line means that she is receiving faster balls, therefore more shock.

I wish her the best.
