Not a Massive shock.

Bartoli, I can imagine, for all her aggresiveness in this match, standing on close to the service line, hitting very flat and going for angles..... she can still not match Kaia blow for blow. Kaia pounds the ball and when she has time to move her big fram around (clay) she is an excellent talented player.
Bartoli would take her out on a hard court no doubt.... but on clay, Kaia's weapons and weight of shot are more convincing.

This would have been a HUGE final or semifinal in juniors five years ago...no longer :(

Wonder if Kaia got the better of Marion often then...could explain the result. Anyway, Foretz is next; Kaia downed her last week, here's hoping for a repeat :yeah:

That makes no sense to me. If Kaia can out hit Marion on clay than there is no reason why she wouldn't on a faster surface.

But Marion's flat strokes just aren't enough to do major damage on slower clay and it was hardly a walkover for Kanepi to win anyway.
