Congrats MGM! :bounce:

I guess that means she won a WTA title before Anna Kournikova and Elena Dementieva! :eek:

Vanity, is Takshent played on a grass court? :confused:

Great photos! :D I always love to see the Champions outfit after they win Takshent! :)

It seems like MGM is heading for the top 20 ASAP! :bounce: Is she still age restricted? :confused:

I assume her greatest asset is her power. And her greatest weakness is her court movement. Is that a fair assessment of MGM?

If you expect me to spell her entire name, forget about it! :o Hence, I have tabbed her as MGM! :wavey:

Marie turned 18 in March so she is no longer under age restrictions. :)

That is a good assessment of her game, cat... she just needs to become fitter and fitter. :) She does look ALOT more fit than last year, so that's a good thing! She will always be a big girl, that's just her body type, but she is and will become more fit. :)
MGM actually reminds me of Monica Seles. The first time I saw her (when she destroyed Elena D in Zurich), I was instantly reminded of a younger Monica. Neither of them look really "athletic", but they can sure hit that ball! :D


Most people around here call her MGM ;) It's a good nickname I think :D
