Any news?
I heard that she should play Stanford, is it possible?

Will she compete in San Diego?

Here is what Marion said in an interview (post-final) at Wimbledon.

'It depends how will do, but for sure I will start in Stanford, going down then to San Diego, I will see. I'm sure Canada, Toronto, I will see if I play New Haven before the Open or not. But it is going to be like three or four tournaments before the Open.''

It would appear she has withdrawn from Cincinnati.

She is on the list for Stanford, San Diego and New Haven.

She has committed to every tournament from Stanford to the US Open. She will probably make her schedule week after week. It will surely depend on her results. I hope she won't put too much pressure on her when she will get back to the courts :unsure:.

We'll see. Either way, I trust her judgment on which tournaments. I hope she is well, and happy with things.

Last year she played:

Cincinnati: QF
Stanford: First round lt. Bammer
Sandiego: First round lt. Srebotnik
Los Angeles: R16 as 15th seed
Montreal: R16 lt Peer
New Haven: QF lt. Stosur
US Open: 3R

but that was Marion not in Wimbledon final form and also, she was only seeded at LA, in every other tournament she met a seed early.

We only know so far that she will definently play San Diego because of that article from their website, she should also be seeded in most if not all tournaments she plays.

Just another good run and into the top 10 Marion! I really hope she gets there:bounce:

Hardcourt is actually her best surface, so the best is yet to come;)

Alizé Molik

that's true Dav she has a 10-5 win loss record for US Open which was her best before the run to the Wimby final (which makes her W w/l 10-5 too!)

I would like her to play the four big tournaments (Stanford, San Diego, LA & Toronto) and then have some rest to be ready for the US :).

Even if playing the week before a slam didn't prevent her from doing well, she has to be careful with her body if she wants to go far. The conditions will be more difficult in the US Open than in Wimbledon where she had many day breaks.

In one sense, It doesnt matter how Marion performs from now on. She has cult hero status, both on account of her Wimbly run, and for her cute idiosyncratic game and personality.

Whether she's ranked #11 or #1 or 111.... I am her fan :)

Well i'm still recieving regular bulletins to the effect that Marion Bartoli's next tournament is Cincinatti.

Now, I already inboxed this myspace user (Marion?) last week. So I dont feel comfortable bothering Marion (?) again with another message, as i'm sure she is busy enough with fans at this time.

But there is nothing stopping any of you guys from messaging Marion (?) yourselves.

Either that, or wait and see. Which is what I am doing.

I wouldn't be surprised if Marion "appeared" at Cincy "unexpectedly". She is flexible with her style of play, so why not with her scheduling :D

I do not want to see her play Cincinnati, she plays too many lower tier events. She has recently proved at the French Open, Eastbourne and Wimbledon that she of course belongs at the top of the sport. She needs to start concentrating on the higher tier events.

I suppose that Marion is better-suited than the big babes to play Henin because she is more mobile.Justine has a way of snuffing out an amazon's power by moving her around so that she can't hit the ball cleanly--plus she tires them out.Despite huge size differences,the No.1 manages to wrap up my favorite tall beauties such as Ivanovic,Bovina,Maria S.,etc. from head to toe in a snug,tight-fitting cocoon--usually without breaking a sweat:mad: .I can't blame her for being a gritty warrior,but I'm glad that Marion beat her at Wimbledon.

She doesnt surrender the point.If you read this page carefully,you'll see that I singled you out as being a gal that has logical reasons for not being a Masha supporter(as opposed to being insecure).My impressions,though clearly imperfect due to a shortage of knowledge,are that Maria isn't the warmest of people,but that she's not the frosty,nasty bitch that her haters make her out to be,either--and she's far superior,skill-wise,to the fraudulent Anna K....though one cannot make unwanted invasions on the personal boundaries of another,the Tickle Test is a near-flawless measure of an icy babe's emotional state.If she doesn't even twitch,she's a glacier;if she giggles,though,it means that she only has a conservative,cautious exterior.;)

Unfortunately NO--I cannot afford to fly to Madrid on a Mexican teacher's wages;I was merely envisioning how it would be to French-kiss Queen Marion I of France.As passionately as she plays,I KNOW that she purrs when she's kissed properly.Sadly,I'll never have the chance to prove it.:sad: ;) ;)

Because mentally, she needs to play in my opinion. If she's not playing she's practicing and training. A first round bye is a mental distraction. It just gives her extra days to think/worry about her opponent. Marion is better out there playing.

I say this despite Navratilova's crappy comments about Marion the other week.

And also the rest of the experts who said she lost the final because she wasnt used to, or fit enough, to play 7 matches in a fortnight. Messrs, Austin and Barker.

Lots of sleep, pasta, candy, some freetime, and a :hug: from daddy... And Marion's ready to play

"You can't be in the final of Wimbledon if you can't move. I mean how impossible to beat the number one in the world [Justine Henin] in the semifinal if not moving great.

"And I beat Jelena Jankvoic, the number three in the world, and she moves so well. If you don't move well you cannot beat her, there is no way.

She is so right. I said the same thing when all the people in GM were saying that she was really overweight and unfit. She couldn't have done that if she was. Just because she is a different shape, everyone gets on her back. :mad: It must be so annoying for her.

Super_Marion

The frequent comments made in GM are almost like cyber bullying. Singling out a player, subjecting her to Incessant ridicule.

The comments Martina made are unhelpful. They just give carte blanche to the rabble. The media and tennis fans pick of these things.

If Marion had defeated Justine in the 2nd or 3rd round, and was knocked out in the following round.. then ok, i'd be prepared to accept that people have grounds for calling Marion's Wimbledon a fluke, like when Craybas knocked out Serena.

However, winning 6 out of 7 matches can't be explained away as a fluke. There wasnt a bad player among those she defeated. Even Flavia whom she defeated in 1st round, has been to the 3rd and 4th round of Wimbledon a few times.

The 'experts' should concede they got it wrong. Spare their own blushes by being more economical with their tongues. If Martina or anyone else dont have anything kind or positive to say then why say anything at all?

And here we are, Post-Wimbledon, still the disrespectful, unfair, and pejorative remarks abound.. Such as made by Martina.. and aped by members of wtfworld.com :rolleyes:

Marion is a very misunderstood player.

Who cares what they say about her weight. She is the most beautiful girl on the tour. AND has the most fascinating game and personality. A Goddess!!

One of my cohorts thinks that Marion is beyond pretty--the hottest French babe on tour.Although she is shorter than my ideal,preferred height,I also considered her QUITE attractive when I first saw her,and shots of her wondrous smile have only strengthened that view.Her thick hair is absolutely GORGEOUS and she has round,juicy buns that are ready for a nice squeeze(do you suppose she'll let me?:drool: ).What a stupid exaggeration to call her 'unfit' simply because she's not lean;I've never seen even ONE 'out-of-shape' player defeat Henin.

I love what you come out with sometimes such true words :D It's part of how God made us that we love to protect the ladies,in this case Marion,when they're being attacked.:) Some feminist douchebags say that we only do this so that the woman will have sex with us but that's only true for a small percentage of men who are extreme assholes.We feel the exact same protective instincts for our moms and sisters and I have personally rescued female friends who were physically UNattractive yet had golden hearts.Even though Marion will never see this I enjoy sticking up for her and her pretty ponytail:kiss: .

As for Super M's points question,she's right that it'll be difficult for Marion to reach that final spot for Madrid but there IS good news.Both Williams girls,especially Serena when she's in a bad mood from getting her ass kicked,have shown an inclination to skip the YEC during those years when they're not #1 or one of the favorites--plus they've never fully overcome their mental weakness over facing each other(THAT'S a female thing:lol: ).It wouldn't surprise me if one of the two stayed home and left an opening for Marion.

Protection can be a loaded word. It can be used to mean control and regulation. It's effect can be suffocating, confining and inhibiting. Partiarchy loves Protection.

Genuine protection has a role to play. But as regards Marion you characterise it in a gendered and sexualised way Bruce Goose which is too simplistic. Protection isnt always about, a). Sex, b). Being Male.

Being Male. Yes,you're right on some points..."protecting the public interest" is a phrase that governments have used to justify numerous atrocities.HOWEVER,in THIS case it's NOT a loaded word;I simply don't enjoy seeing how Marion has been verbally attacked and I wished to stand up for her.Being a woman you only have an anecdotal grasp of male sentiment,but there ARE times when we have protective instincts towards women with NO manipulative intentions--either conscious or unperceived.

OBVIOUSLY:rolleyes: ,there are many ways to look out for someone and it isn't always intergender.As simple or complicated as you'd like to make it,in THIS specific instance it was the aforementioned male instincts that spurred me to defend the feminine Marion...and there was hardly any sexual overtone unless you deem my kissing joke as 'gender oppression'.:rolleyes: If I had to guess,I'd be pretty confident that Marion wouldn't feel threatened if she ever saw my post...seeing as how I've never stalked,telephoned or even written her a letter....Believe it or not,I try to respect the autonomy of others since I value my own.

it was the aforementioned male instincts that spurred me to defend the feminine Marion.Gendered and Sexualised. You admit without even realising.

It's not a hanging offence, and wtaworld could do with more members who will put their kneck on the line for Marion.

I just question and hope you would accord the same personal protection to for example; a young gay boy getting bullied by thugs. Or a black person being racially abused.

I just question and hope you would accord the same personal protection to for example; a young gay boy getting bullied by thugs. Or a black person being racially abused.Actually,I admitted the gender aspect right from the start and YOU didn't realize it.My only denial was in reference to the 'sexualization' accusation because I assumed that you were referring to 'sex' in the modern sense--coitus and its related behavior.If,in fact,you meant 'sex' in the older,more scholarly sense as it connotes GENDER,THEN you are correct yet boringly redundant today in using two terms that are virtually synonymous.It's not uncommon for labellers to employ this as a psychological tactic to try to hammer their points across.By speaking words that are almost identical in meaning(though different in name),they hope to deceive their opponents into thinking that they possess a higher total of valid arguments than truthfully exist.

However,if you DID mean 'sexual' in the more modern sense of the word,then your plank completely falls apart.As the accuser,the onus would be on YOU to prove at least beyond a reasonable doubt that I had coital intent or lustful motivation in defending Marion(which I didn't have).Based on first-hand,forensic experience I can tell you that NO qualified judge would accept this supposition based upon flimsy,speculative 'evidence'.

I can only guess as to whether or not you wanted an answer to your 'questions' but...since I don't feel threatened by gays,I have no desire to see them beaten down and wouldn't sanction such physical abuse despite my disagreement with their lifestyle.As for blacks,I'll venture that my background is more broad-based than yours when you tally my several years' worth of helping ex-convicts further their education.If I deeply hated blacks,then it would be quite odd to interact with this particular segment of their population...and Marion B.,IF you're reading this,je suis desolee pour tout le bruit bete!:worship:

Semantics and Legalism now.. :rolleyes:

The word I used was "sexualised". Most people understand that word to be broad, non specific of any one aspect of sex or sexuality, such as your word, "coitus".

All your posts are replete with sexual innuendo Bruce Goose. Once or twice is ok. But you subvert EVERY message which you reply, Into cheap vaudeville.

To say you "wouldnt sanction physical abuse" sounds somewhat short of.. *intervening to protect*. But again, it depends on what you mean by "sanction." How far would you go to.. prevent, and, not permit. Your choice of word affords you lattitude. I suspect not unintentionally.

Sunfeast. 17th. Teir 3. Indoor Carpet.

Marion, Dementieva, Kirilenko, the home favorite Mirza, and a few others.

According to marion-bartoli.net, Marion IS intending a final push to gain entry to the prestigious Teir 1 end of season Masters Championship in Madrid. Held in November.

She is currently 9th in the ATP race, a few hundred points behind Venus or Serena. It's a top 8 tournament.
