As you guys wrote, she's the new boss here. She's taking Aravane's trophy this year :hearts:.
Great win! Hope to see some aggressive retrieving before the grass court season.

It was an unexpected big win for Marion...

Good win for Marion, a tricky opponent on clay. Maybe she cares a little bit more here since it's a mandatory event. Curious to see what she will do against Pavlyuchenkova, their last meeting was in Tokyo 2009, Marion & Medical Time Out won there 4-6 6-2 7-5. Both aren't exactly Clay-GOATS but I think the bigger amount of time on clay to set up the shots should be good for Pavlyuchenkova.

Not surprising anymore...looks like they are playing on hard.

Marion winning on clay... I must be dreaming :)
Oh no, wait, Marion always plays well in Premier's :p

Halep :haha:

Halep is useless. No suprise.

Halep is useless. No suprise.

I love your signature! :hearts:

But I sort of agree, I haven't really been impressed by Halep yet. I saw her at Wimbledon qualifying last year when she needed three sets to overcome Fedossova. :lol:

Marion :eek: She did win a round last year, but still suprisingly comprehensive. :yeah:

May 1st, 2011, 04:14 PM
Bartoli is going to win RG. Wager your $$ guys

May 1st, 2011, 04:53 PM
Marion :woohoo: Good win for her :)
Simona :hug: She has still to improve a lot.

May 1st, 2011, 04:54 PM
Hard court clay defeated Simona! :o

Well, no surprise if you have to play a tiebreak against Duque Marino in qualifying... :facepalm:

Halep is useless. No suprise.

Yeah, a shame that she is the third highest ranked teenager at the moment :hug:

Not a surprise at all. This surface is faster than embarrassing 'hardcourts' at IW and miami.
