So much for the injury. It seems like she didn't have to do much though.

The only way Sesil beats Serena is if she starts juicing and doping again. Even then, she'd need to have the best performance enhancing drug/steroid on the planet and only made by the best doctors.

I saw the match. :)

Pironkova kept pulling out her drop shot and it probably only worked 40% of the time. Marion kept patient and hit her balls deep and hard. Pironkova hit quite a lot of errors and in the end Marion proved too consistent for her. Well done Marion. ;) Should probably play better next round though.

Nah, Serena doesn't normally play injured. She doesn't cheat and use steroids either. ;)

Marion is putting herself on the right course for her stated goal of returning to the top 10.

There so many things about this win that make me happy.

Excellent. :)

Marion :yeah:
She said she doesn't like the Aussie Open, because neither the conditions nor the balls nor the court fits her game..

Tsveti :hug:

This match was a lot better than the stats said. I was surprised with how defensive Pironkova was actually playing...it was working in the first set but she never really took her chances to be aggressive unless Marion hit a really bad shot.

The rallies were very long and usually ended in a rally...but it was very entertaining.

A pretty average match I thought. Marion wasn't playing her game in the 1st set due to nervosity but all credits to her to have fought. That's the difference with Marion '09 :D. In the second set, she was more dictating rallies the way she was doing in Brisbane.
Pironkova's forehand was total crap, no way she achieves something with such a handicap! Her game plan was interesting though with all those short balls and it almost worked.

Congrats Marion!!!

Serena at pathetic tank play > Pironkova.

Well played again Bartoli, awesome job! I'm so happy that she is able to back up her first straight sets win with another (even though I expected this)

for once marion isn't a fat mess in melbourne! she still needs to get over it and play harder in the matches, which she did in the second, but there is no reason for falling behind in sets to players she should comfortably beat.
