So Marion IS Playing Dubai!

Well, well, well, a number on here said she wouldn't play Dubai. I said she would for the $s (no one since Monica loves $s as much as Marion!) and again others said Marion didn't need/want the loot and was too injured anyway.

But Marion obviously travelled to Dubai via Lourdes. Or maybe she after all did what I thought she did: quit a match she knew she wasn't going to win to save herself for more cash collecting in Dubai? I swear, she'd come and play Chop Chop Tennis with my niece for a few quid! I wonder how many Tournies she'll manage to squeeze in this year?!

Hey ho, just an observation and a distraction from the endless tedious debate on Caroline's musings of the day!

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.

Her body defies conventions. How does someone so heavy manage to play so many matches

She will earn 10k even if she loses in R1. And she received room big enough for free.

Considering they are a first class nation in other racquet sports eg: Squash and Badminton... I would say they are quite knowledgable about tennis.

Re: So Marion IS Playing Dubai!

Retiring late in a tourney and then playing the next week is nothing new for Marion .

By turning up, playing a few matches and not winning the actual tournament. I think she knows she won't win so plays as much as she can to boost her ranking and swell her bank account.

Re: So Marion IS Playing Dubai!

Tennis player plays tennis. SHOCK REVELATION!

seriously, she wants to keep competative and maintain ranking, so why not play?

There are players I could mention, but won't, who play like half that many tournaments (or less) becasue thet don't need the money.

Re: So Marion IS Playing Dubai!

Marion has always said that she will take a final decision during warm up. And if she has to pull out, she will do it. But she wants to try......for the tournament, for staff....

I think at least most people would know it involves a green ball.

Knowledgeable? Meh, maybe some may know who Sharapova or Williams sisters are, or Federer, Nadal, Djokovic. Other than that, it isn't any popular (as in being played by the people) compared to the other two mentioned.
