She absolutely KILLED Jelena in that match.

Marion was so confident, hitting through the ball cleanly, it was a pleasure to watch.

I loved when Bartoli took out Venus Williams at the Bank Of The West tournament last year. That was a great match in front of a big crowd.

It was a more entertaining match because Venus came back from a 3-6 2-5 deficit to take it into a third.

But that Australian Open match fully showcases Marions ability + it was at a slam against the number one seed.

i still think her swings and motions are ugly to watch. it seems awkward.

She also played well against Venus in Stanford. Should be a good match if they both reach the semis in Miami.

I forgot how SLOW Jelena was in that match...damn.

Credit to Marion though.

Jelena just gave her too much time on the ball right into her hitting zone in that match!

I thought that was a god awful match. Venus didn't even bring her D game and it was still a tight three setter, obviously Bartoli played well enough to win, but the quality was pretty bad, Venus had an insane amount of errors.

Marion was so good in that match. Wish she could be like that always.

Marion got killed in the next match by Vera. :lol:

Different match up. Vera's topspin and angles takes the ball out of Marion's strike zone, forcing her to stretch high, wide, whatever. Marion was never able to get a good strike on the ball and was instead outmaneuvered.

JJ's flattish slow balls play right into Marion's hands, and given that she was in her bulking up phase here, she couldn't even play good defence.

Yeah Marion can hit amazing winners when slow loopy balls are fed to her and she doesn't have to run much.

when she's on, her game makes a lot of sense.. nice to watch her play well. watching this live was a little sad as jj didnt stand a chance!

LOL, wasn't this when JJ decided she needed to bulk up to play better tennis? She was so slow in this match, and she wasn't able to throw Marion off her balance.

Marion's angles are so great to watch when they're on.

It's a very unique serving motion - ten points for artistry! I love it!

Some of these h2h's are because of when they play.
Caro leads Marion 3-1, all blowouts.
I think the 2008 Jankovic would beat the best of Bartoli.
Marion needs errors, and shortballs. Really quality, steady players will beat Marion, like Caro and Vera do. Jelena has the style to do the same

She might be the one that can beat Venus.

I really really love Marion's serve motion and I wish more girls would be a little more creative with their's.

But that match was just terrible from JJ :unsure: 3*-0 and 40-0 and she just hit error after error. It was awful to see Jelena get killed like that but her movement and defensive shot making was abysmal. Credit to Marion for the ability to put away her puff balls with some superb angles.

JJ was lucky to avoid a bagel.

These HTs are not complete without Marion forcing a DF by standing almost on the service line in the 2nd set. That was hilarious.
I love this match. Jelena had no chance whatsoever.
