Re: WWW Doha 1/4 Final: Marion Bartoli FRA v Lucie Safarova CZE

Cake has the eye of the tiger lately, and fights no end. I didn't see any of Safarova's matches lately, but she certainly appears to be in great form and snatching wigs right and left.

I'm picking Marion. She hits hard, and I suspect her two-fistedness makes her less susceptible to problems handling lefthanders. (But I don't have data on that.)

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3

Re: WWW Doha 1/4 Final: Marion Bartoli FRA v Lucie Safarova CZE

This match depends on Marion's fitness (she looked tired yesterday) and Lucie's mentality (already played 2 very close matches), I think it will be a close match.

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.

Re: WWW Doha 1/4 Final: Marion Bartoli FRA v Lucie Safarova CZE

I vote Marion, for the simple reason that Lucie will equal her best ever ranking of 22 if she wins this match, and she ALWAYS loses when she is in danger of that or finally breaching the top 20.

Let's hope I'm wrong though.

Re: WWW Doha 1/4 Final: Marion Bartoli FRA v Lucie Safarova CZE

I'm so looking forward to this match. One of the most interesting since Australia.

Marion should win but she has a habit of losing matches you think she will win.

I'll be happy either way.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

Maybe, but another factor is that Lucie was kicked out of the Fed Cup team and boy has it paid off in terms of motivating her to improve.
