Marion Bartoli said in her blog this week in Seoul, that in Bali one night, she fell asleep at 11:00 PM and woke up at 6:00 PM. How can a person sleep for 19 hours :eek: :eek: Maybe it's just me but that's crazy! :eek: :eek:

"Hi everyone,

I just came off the court from my second round match with Severine Brémond. We didn't know if we were going to play indoors or outdoors, or if we were going to play today at all. The rain would stop and start and it was getting really boring. All I usually do during these delays is try and eat some food and look for relaxing things to do to keep my mind off the rain. But we did get to play in the end, and it was a very tough match. We both played really well. She played a lot of drop shots, so I had to run a lot and focus, and I'm happy to get through in straight sets, 76(1) 61. The first set was close but it was a little easier in the second.

I remember playing Severine in some French tournaments a long time ago, not on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour or ITF Women's Circuit. I was younger than her and she'd always beat me. Then, I beat her once, in the French Championships, on clay, and we didn't play for six years, until today.

One thing I've had fun with this week is playing this game on the Nintendo DS, Cérébrale Académie (Big Brain Academy). I played it a lot last night. You have 60 seconds per category and there are five categories: think, memorize, analyze, compute and identify. The better answers you have and the quicker you give them, the better score you have. Last night I broke the record of the master of the game! Once you are done, it gives you the weight of your brain. The master of the game has one kilogram, 69 grams; I got more than two kilograms!

I'm playing late tomorrow so I'm quite lucky, because I played pretty late tonight. Now I'm gonna go back to the hotel, get ready and get a nice dinner, then probably get lots of sleep tonight. I sleep a lot - usually 10-12 hours a night. A few weeks ago in Bali, when I got there the first day, I went to bed at 11pm on Friday night and woke up at 6pm on Saturday. That's about 19 hours. And when I got up I looked around and it was still night-time.

Tomorrow I play Akiko Morigami, who, like me, is a double-handed player on both sides. We played once a few years ago. I'll think about my tactics tomorrow, when I'm warming up, just to not put too much pressure on myself. I like to stay relaxed before a match.

Talk to you after the match!

Marion"

If you dropped a t you could pretend to be the grandson/granddaughter of Mireille. A claim to fame no less! :bounce:

It's bad for one's blood-pressure to sleep less than 7 or more than 8 hours a night. Not to mention a sheer waste of a significant percentage of one's life.

I'm generally a 6 hour sleeper but if I get burned out or skip a whole night I could sleep up to 14 hours.

Doesn't surprise me one bit. I often get the impression she sleeps on the court as well. :p

Two words: Jet Lag

When I came back from Beijing to California I slept from 11PM to 3PM the next day.

It's definitely possible. I wonder when she went back to sleep. :scratch:

Even though she annoys the hell outta me on court and I think she would definitely improve by.. like, going to the gym (:o) she intrigues me.... very weird family.

Normally sleeping for 19 hours would be considered a symptom of clinical depression. Hopefully it was just jet lag or maybe her clock went wrong.

That sounds like hell to me. Sleeping is such a waste of time.

I completely agree. If I didn't have to sleep, I wouldn't!

Sleep... :worship:
She probably had jet lag on top of being generally tired.
I remember when I had my wisdom teeth pulled a few years back and I was on all of those pain killers I slept for about 15-20 hours a day for the majority of two weeks.

I can sleep 14 hours max. 9-10 seems to be my normal requirement.

I've slept 14 straight before. It's a freaky feeling. I was working midnights at the time and probably didn't sleep for a couple days.

Guys, it IS definately possible. The thing about sleep is...if you miss an hour or two for a long stretch, which I imagine ALOT of teenis players do cuz of the travel, it WILL ADD UP. And at somepoint, if you dont set alarm clock, your body will makeup for all the time you jipped it. I went to bed once after only getting 3,4 hours sleep for about a week straight, I went to bed at 7, slept through most of th next day did not wake up till about 3 the next day. Good thing it was a weekend.

And let me tell ya...I was in the bathroom for a LONG time after I woke up :eek:

Jet-lag maybe...my record is only 16 hours hehe.:lol:

my record is about 15-16 hours, but that was after camping :o

I slept forl almost a whole day, on a bus, after 7 days of partying in the South of the country. You can imagine how my body felt after that.

I'm guessing you have to be really, really tired to sleep for that long. Either that, or have a really big depression.

my record is like 14-15 hours and when I woke up, I was still tired lol

For some reason the less amount of sleep i get, the better i feel. not saying that it doesn't catch up with me because it does.

Tennis players seem to get a lot more sleep than I expected. Jankovic has said on a few occasions that she has slept in late. It's cool. I like to sleep in late when I can, although I always assumed that during tournaments the players would be up by like 7am every morning :o Guess that's definetly not the case. I like to sleep in, although if I sleep more than 10 hrs. I feel like crap.

I can sleep alot. Once you over sleep it's easy to keep it going because you feel more tired than when you don't oversleep.

Penelope Cruz once said that everyone in her family likes sleeping a lot. She said that it was not uncommon for her or her sister to sleep for 20 hours straight. Oh, those crazy Spaniards.

I slept something like 20 hours after a long week end in a festival where I didn't slept for almost 2 days, so believe me, 19 hours are possible ;)

After reading her blog, I genuinely feel bad for her. She's completely isolated. She had no contact with anybody on tour that entire week, seemingly has no friends, and just stayed in her hotel when she wasn't playing. Didn't see anything of Seoul.

I understand she's there to do a job and can't just be explore Seoul all week, but most players at least get to see the main touristy stuff. She just seems to be by herself all the time..

Federer ‘sleeps’ 11 hrs a day. Although it wasn’t mentioned how much of that is spent lying on top of the mattress, rather than on top of Mirka.

I got only about 5 hours sleep in 4/5 days once. Not recommended.

I have trouble sleeping 6 hours a day nevermind 16. It's partly due to the problem I'm having concerning my colostomy bag.

Im thinking how she slept those 19 hrs.. I guess she could woke up some times.. and she maybe was so tired so back to sleep again.. for several times so.. that could be one possibility..
