Re: Bartoli is 0-10 against Radwanska and Sharapova
I think that Marion will beat Masha at least once before they both retire. As is WELL known, Maria is not the player she used to be, and though her 2011 was excellent, she can still be prone to throwing in shitfests now and then. Do I think that Maria will have to be off her game for Marion to win? Absolutely. As has been stated, Marion hits with the same pace and flatness pretty much every time, something that gets Maria into her groove and allows her to dominate from the baseline. But if Maria has a crappy serving day, and Marion is in GOAT-mode, I think it's more than possible.
Aga? Probably not. Aga moves too well, and moves the ball around too well also, two things that signal death for Marion. All their matches seem to be the same: Marion starting very well, blasting Aga's serve and going up like 3-1, before losing the set 3-6/4-6. Same scenario in the second. Aga just wears her down.
