Tennis magazine...Mary is...

Hello guys,

I just want to tell you that, in tennis magazine there is an article about mary.

As usual , journalists are giving pronostic about who is going to win...... and they are thinking that Mary can reach the quarter final and it would'nt be a surprise, but they think she only has 2,5% of chances to win RG this year.

Well in fact those journalists make me laugh, they are thinking that Nathalie Dechy has 5% of chance to win RG, sorry but I'm laughing.

Even if Mary is older... clay is her surface, Nathalie hates clay come on guys keep your feet on the floor !!! I'm french I will cheer all the french players but stop writting this kind of stupid pronostics, I'm think Tati has a better chance to win than Nat and she is only at 5.5% !!!


****There is one little quote I love, it's not from Mary but from the director of the commercial cie (Arnaud Lagardère) which is the new partner of France TV and RG.

"He said, I think too much people forget that Yannick Noah is not the last french player who has won RG, it's Mary Pierce and I believe that Daniel Bilalian (director of sports from France TV) is giving a wrong exemple when he always talks about Yannick instead of Mary"

excellent point made above about how mary always seems to be overlooked as the last french person to win rg...even a couple years back when mauresmo was close (either she made sf or f, can't remember) everyone was saying the last french lady to win was that other lady who won it couple decades ago, not mary pierce, what's that all about?

Oh I think just because Mary was not born in France etc.. and all that fuss.

But maybe Saby has a better explanation.

Mary was not born and raise in france and I do belIeve some people don't like that, Mary is doing whatever she wants and some people don't like that... LOL She has an accent, now she's speaking very good french !! but she has an accent...LOL

I don't really know, some persons are stupid and some like us accept differences, if you look at all the best french atleths, 90% are from french islands, are naturalised or one of their parents is french. Look at Mary, Tati, Zidane, Henry, Maracineanu all are from different place in the world... but they are all french

Francoise Durr won Roland Garros in 1967 - but she was actually born in Algiers!!

And Tauziat was born in ... Africa

It's too good to hear such a quote by the new partner of Roland Garros !
Hope he will force french tv to speak more about Mary's win ...

I have to add that Dechy has no chance to win at Rg : 0% !!!
But, perhaps ... hmm ... perhaps she has 5% chance to win her first match

"I felt very strongly that it was not the right time for me to retire, and there were still some great things for me to accomplish in tennis. So once that really clicked inside of me and I realised that, I just started to work very hard, and to try to be the best that I could possibly be."

On the road since 1989

Sometime I think it's because Mary's dad didn't let the french federation take all the control of Mary's training, life... well you know what I mean.

But i'm happy about what this guy said during the press conference, at least beside Mary's fans someone knows she is the last RG french champ
WE ARE NOT ALONE ANYMORE !!! LOL !!!
