She really did.
Bartoli did everything right.
Justine played right into her game. Totally.
This is why I'm so disappointed.
Bartoli played a fantastic point in the second set which Justine applauded and I think that's when everything changed.

Yes. And in the worst of moments too.

DROPSHOT, Justine, say it with me. DROPSHOT.

yes. She did not believe in her tactics and touch game. She still deep down believes that deep topspin is the way to go. She got tired due to the long rallies which that brought about. Therefore her serve and her fight deserted her. Jankovic struggled with the same thing. you have to keep the points shorter and serve and return well. you have to mix up your shots to prevent long rallies. Bartoli got to play what she wanted and got to run Justine. Props on you MARION!!!

Sorry Justine! Not smart today but this is life.

Bothers me that she didn't really realise that making Bartoli run was the key.
She sent everything back to Bartoli like a gift present :o

I'm very surprised that Justine had no Plan B out there today.

I think she was just spent. There was absolutely nothing on most of her shots. Even in the first set. I thought she was trying to practise her slice or something. She was spinning the forehand and slicing the bakchand. It's very surprising considering she didn't play much tennis these last 2 weeks and got her luck when it comes to the weather. There's still a physical problem she needs to address.

Yes. Too bad she realised it after the match was over.

basically she stopped doing what she doing in set 1
she lost the plot and looked lost out there.

Hmmm...after Bartoli saved those virtual mp's in the 11th game of the set 2, Justine was gone. Marion finally learned that you have to hit deep to justine's backhand..

I think Justine got tired and that's pretty much when technique fails.
