Marion Bartoli being Overworked :(

Did anyone hear Mary Jo or was it Pam say that Marion told them that she was really tired because her father had been making her work out for up to 12 hours per day

That is insane...something needs to be done about this...he is going to make her hate the game

Yes I heard that....and it bothered me!!! Its one thing to push your children but damn...you would think he would have learned from all the other crazy tennis fathers. He sounds obsessive anyway....what with quiting his job and all. I hope someone listens to this young lady (ie MOM) and makes the appropriate changes.

yeah, that really pissed me off. at the most it should be 4 hours, if that many. wtf?

Marion is one of my preschoolers but I'm afraid she won't graduate with all that pressure. It's not like her parents are depending on her for their income. Her dad's a doctor and her mom's a nurse.

They said that her dad quit his job as a doctor...

I saw them last year at the Bronx Challenger, she lost in the first round to Ashley and he was really mad...

I also found it strange that all the girls would hang out together in the eating area or lounge and he was always there..its like he never lets her have any time by herself...

I first heard this last year at the U.S. Open. And I for one couldn't believe it either! I mean 12 hours is too much and I agree she will get tired not only physically but mentally.

Marion has grown a lot since then which is good but I just hope she enjoys the game. And thankfully (knock on wood) she hasn't had any major injuries!
