Thanks for sending it, Nicky! :kiss:

But I have to apologize to anyone waiting for my hastily-promised summary! The French is hard for me and will take me some time to translate, and I do not have the time available today. :sad:

Nicky, can you give us some idea about what it says? :angel:

nothing against Marion... but I'm surprised she has so many fans!
I saw her at the Acura practicing with Amanda Coetzer, and she was pracctically out there crying and complaining in French. My dad came up and was like... is that some college player! because Amanda whipping her out on like every practice point! She was wearing what appeared to be the same shirt she wore during her matches as well. She also has that annoying hip-hop stuff she does EVERY time before she serves. She also works herself into the ground... I saw her finishing a practice like almost when she was supposed to go on.

Hard 2C Marion's creeping in on the serve (inc. first) working against a W/S, Juju, etc. very well. I still see Tatiana Golovin as le Future French Femme.

my french is somewhat decent so if someone wants to post it I can try to translate it or at least get an idea of what it says

Bartoli has very nice strokes (I saw her vs. juju at att cup...she just needs something new and different...and she still has many...many holes in her game.)

I agree about the " great " Tatiana Golovin. I read in " L' équipe " this week that she will leave Nick Bollitierri tennis academy and that she will train in Paris, in Rolland Garros stadium :). I hope that' s something " good " for her :) !!!!!

Marion also pounds her foot into the court just before she takes a stroke. It is rather odd and not very pretty. Is it just me -- and I haven't seen her play a lot -- or does she lack speed?
