Re: Marion Bartoli needs to get more physically fit if she wants to win a major.
I like Marion but I think a few posters here are being a little bit too sensitive regarding the whole weight aspect. She has of course done extremely well in her career with a Wimbledon final, an RG semi and reaching number 7 in the world. However it is true that she's one of the only players that I've seen over the years consistently have matches where she just seems utterly exhausted and there's no doubt it holds her back.
For example against Woz in IW last year and Lisicki at Wimbledon we saw her snatch momentum off her opponent only to be pegged right back due to fatigue setting- huffing and panting etc. This was also evident in her match against Radwanska (Yes, I know their H2H) where she had nothing left in the tank even though it's not like she played a load of 3 setters prior to the semis. I do also think that like Ivanovic a couple of years ago she probably does waste a bit too much energy getting herself all pumped up. There's a way to balance that better, look at Maria- pumps herself up a lot on the court too, but rarely expends too much energy doing so (see her record in 3 setters from the start of 2011).
I do really like Marion though, but she could definitely improve her results to an even higher level with a bit more emphasis on fitness.
