Re: What Does Marion Have To Do?
Hard to say really. Shes not an athletic person, so she has to work harder than a lot of the girls and is more prone to injury. Shs never going to be skinny, some people just are that shape.
In regards to Daddy Bartoli, Im very mixed about the whole thing. Shes very close with him and getting a new coach would be a very risky decision emotionally, and even though people laugh at him on the tennis scene, I really doubt she'd have gotten to where she is today without him. But I would like to see her taking on 2 coaches, because I think she has the potential to get further.
Mentally shes al over the place. Sometimes she fights (Sugi in Dubai, Bepa in Beijing, JJ and Venus in Stanford) and then other times she utterly collapses (her chinese losses this year are easy examples). Its impossible to predict her results.
Serve is an obvious thing. Though she is a very small person so it'll never be a weapon.
"I think if people ask, How is Marion Bartoli? They will always respond, She's a nice person. That's what I'm most proud of..
