Marion's record this year so far: 6-9

Ranking:23

She was almost double-bageled by Danilidou in her last match.

What do you think?

I think she can only beat players in the Tier IV and III tournaments, and doesn't have the talent to beat the top players.

She was looking promising at IW but she's be gobbling up too many bagels with glee

Wow, the difference in the two pics are shocking. I think she's in a small slump and hopefully she can get it together.

She's bringing chubby back, what!!! You mutherf----- don't know how to act

I think it's special what you have in your lap
so cut me a piece and maybe I'll hit it from the back

Come on girl, give me a piece of the cake
Come to the back, it looks so yummy
to the VIP, why you being so stingy
just a little bitty taste
you can eat a whole pie
that makes me smile
go ahead girl get your chubby on

I saw her 4th rd match against Nicole Vaidisova at IW which she lost in 3 sets. When you look at her she looks chunky, with your 2 photos for comparison it looks even more so.

I saw her in Auckland in 2004 and 2007. 2004, I was impressed with her game and her movement around the court. This year, not so much. Her movement looked laboured and her play wasn't flowing very well at all. She lost in the 2nd round to Loit.

can't exactly be a slump when she wasn't exactly producing stellar tennis....she won little little tournies....never any big tournie breakthroughs so if she had that big breakthrough then I could say she is slumping :help:

She won Auckland, (not a 'little little' tournament :rolleyes: ), The Japan Open (Tokyo) and Quebec City last year and was ranked #17 in the world.

I went to indian wells myself, and saw both the Safina and Vaidisova matches. She actually looked good and should have beat Nicole in 2. However that match was stopped between 2nd and 3rd set for the heat rule and she looked like she was cramping up on the side.

My concern is that as much as i like to see tennis every week, her current ranking lists 32 tourneys in the last year. Snarkers will note that she "rests" the 2nd week of a slam as her best slam result last year was a 3rd rd at the open. I can understand Mattek entering that many because of qualies, but shouldnt Marion be able to set up a better sked?

And she was a totally sweet girl when I met her back in Tokyo last year. However the camera doesn't lie. Last year we watched as she dined on cakes and crepes and it must all go somewhere :shrug::devil:

She's always been inconsistent. It's hard to know about her fitness because in Indian Wells she was moving really well and winning a lot of the longer rallies but then she was breathing very deeply too.

as prob marion's biggest fan, i even agree that the difference in those pics is astounding and it would appear she has weight issues. i think she and groenefeld are going through something very similar..

I like Marion though, I always thought she a big girl but obviously I was wrong. I remember hearing something about her father, Walter Bartoli being an infamous "mad dad" though...

In terms of weight i think you can definitely call it a slump. What i don't get is how she's able to win matches even though she's got the size of an elephant. :confused:

I think Marion has the talent to move up. She obviously needs to get more fit to do that though. Something is obviously going on in her head. Slump.

Marion's issue even more than weight is BIG DADDY!!!

She went to Saddlebrook for a while, got herself into shape and then her Daddy got into it with Etcheberry and that arrangement went kaput. Now her weight has been slowly creeping back up since then. Some of these girls get on my last nerves. They are grown women now and should be able to sit back, take stock of their career and make better decisions and if that means telling Daddy to take a step back then so be it.

I agree 100%. It's not necessarily her weight at the root of the problem.

If you say so.
Did she love cake before or after the issue wih Etchberry?
I'm guessing she did before the Etchberry incident.

Now maybe if she said she likes cake I wouldn't make this a big deal.
But if a sane person says "I love cake" at any time in their life, they're going to have a weight problem no matter what.

I like Marion,but her problem is a lack of motivation,if she was motivated she wouldn't have this weight.

Weight gain for some people is a "simple" matter of eating too much, often the wrong type of foods. Having a trainer and nutritionist help a great deal, especially in providing some discipline, but then again the best discipline is internal. When athletes gain weight, there may be some underlying emotional issues, such as eating becomes a way of escape from the pressures, and the ups & downs of the tour. Different players and their support system handle it differently, hopefully with more healthier ways than eating. Now that's assuming she doesn't have a physical or medical cause for the weight gain. It's usually simple math, more calories you consume exceeds your ability to burn them off, you gain weight. :sad: :confused: :rolleyes: :eek: :help:

Is the first photo really from 2004?. She looks so much younger. Didn't Marion say in her blog last year that she sleeps 10-12 hours a day?

Must be hard to find the time to train enough then:lol:

Well Marion will get out of this funk as soon as someone takes the cake out of her hands.
That's easier said than done.
Pretty much in small variations this is what usually happens to somebody who tries to take a cake from someone who loves cake.

Ni---!!! What you doing with my cake!?!
Ni---!!! You better stop playing!!! I still have the cake knife.
Ni---. You trippin. That ain't nothing but a little cut.
You need to get up off that floor. I just brought those carpets.
No I don't feel bad. You shouldn't have been playing with my cake.

Ni---!!! Get the f--- up!!! You're bleeding on my floors.
You better find some Shout or something and clean my floors.

I've witnessed some of Marion's father's really bad moment myself and it's quite sthing. He is a doctor by profession, but sometimes i wonder what kind of medicine he does. I think she has trouble outside of tennis and no one can manage to get a good career going when the basis of your life isn't on the right track.

For the people who said Marion had no talent, I saw marion all week in Quebec City here, and I must say she played unbelievable, especially in the quarters against Perry (1 and 0) and the finals against Poutchkova (0 and 0). She played flawless tennis in the final, something like 2 UEs. She really should get back on track and is still quite young.

Remember in 2004 she was also very young and your body change around that age. She has been quite chubby in the past few years already, it's not like it happened in a few months.

I watched Marion get beaten by Vera Dushevina in Miami and I was stunned by how over-weight and out of shape she is! Her belly hangs out like she's been swilling beer and eating buffalo wings while watching tennis instead of playing tennis. Plus, she used every stall tactic in the book to make a three set match last roughly three hours. It was like watching grass grow. I walked away from that match telling myself that I will never again watch a match if she's playing as long as I live. Life is too short.

As for talent, she doesn't seem to suffer from any shortage of talent; she's just squandering it.
