Marion Bartoli: The fittest player in the tour?????

Well, she keeps jumping here and there and keep practising her swings here and there between points. Is there any other player who shows such good fitness other than her?

Re: Marion Bartoli: The fittest player in the tour?????


The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

It is truly amazing how she keeps that up, though it seem to wear her out against Schiavone.

She's gotten herself into MUCH better shape this year, but is far from fittest on the tour. It's also not hard to display good stamina when your opponent can't put two balls in the court like Kvitova now.

She needs to stop eating so much cake. Then she'll be top 10 all the time and possibly top 5

Can we get a ban on the use of that pic? Or at least a resizing of it.

Picture is bad but nothing comes close to sight of Lisa Raymond when she played Fed Cup in Portoroz few years back

At least she's fit again

She's a freaking joke I can't stand her stupid bouncing, fake swings, her service motion, her face, everything.
