if you look at the trend, both ana and maria was runner up in both aussie open and french open last year and got trashed by serena and justine and end up winning this year.. so do you think marion can take wimbledon?

Right now, she'd be lucky to get to the 4th round.

Bartoli is the only player in the top 20 with a losing record this year (other than Tatiana who has barely played).

would be a huge shock...i dont really see it happening. Ana and Maria were the 2 best players of this year irrespective of how they played last year.. ana almost deserves 2 b going for 3rd slam in a row where as marion cant even beat casey on clay

Well, if players do not perform to their potential then it is possible. The French Open opened up a lot this year. In the end, Ivanovic won...not the predicted winner by most, but not a huge upset either.

In the past, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open have not been known for surprising champions. Typically the better players always seem to win this event, so ultimately, although Bartoli may have a good run like she did last year she will eventually play someone like Venus, Serena, Sharapova, Ivanovic, Jankovic etc. etc. that are in good form and will defeat her.

Nope Marion can't. To win Wimbledon, you will have to beat players with a huge serve (Williams, Sharapova, Ivanovic) and lately, Marion has been unable to return properly. Casey had so many service winners and it was on clay :o.

ughh, I can't wait for Marion to lose gazillion points after Wimby and go back to around #30 where she belongs :o

Nope, because the things that are said here are quite true. Marion has lost in first round of the first two Slams, has barely won two matches in a row and her shape has been more suspicious than ever. Right now, she doesn't deserve her top 10 spot and I'm kind of relieved she will be out of it after Wimbledon ... unless she starts to play very well again before ;).

She will lose in the 1st Round.

No way that she will win! If she's lucky she will get a qualifier in the first round but I think that will be one of two wins she can pull off this year. Sorry, but she is just not playing anywhere near a decent level of play!

Perhaps she can, after she saves the earth from a large meteor :bounce:

ugh.. i never find this thread before i created mine...
but i might as well add that justine was a runner-up in USO06 and went on to win the 07 edition!
so the trend actually starts earlier.... :angel:

Why? I love Marion's game but let's be honest, she is no longer the same one year after. Her movement has worsened, she is no longer patient, her serve is very inconsistent & she tires herself very easily. Last year, she was extremely accurate, her return of serve was almost robotic, she could keep a very high 1st serve % & her movement was good, based on anticipation and a decent shape. She has worked too hard to adding more power to her shots, I don't find this was the good move, because she is losing on consistency.

But it's true that on grass, there are only shorts rallies, her flat strokes can be very dangerous. The only question is about which Marion will show up. Marion played quite well in the 1st set against Casey for example and the day after, she was totally awful. So it's hard to say.

Yep, Marion will get to the 3rd round. She won't win but I believe she can in the future.

i don't see her winning that thing, but with a lucky draw, she can make the semis.

Igor and Jelena out of the Top4 seeds might be quite vulnerable on grass.

Her name is still Svetlana not Igor ;)
Well I hope the best for Marion a Fourth Round would be ok.

I don't see her winning Wimbledon, as I don't understand that there's an actual thread about this subject ;).

nah because to win wimbledon you would need to win a match - which marion is not capable of at the minute :lol:

Bartoli will NEVER win Wimbledon.

with that said, she won't even reach the quarters this year.

^would be funny if she did, though I doubt it.

3rd round at best.

i like marion but
i don't think she will win this. I'll suprised if manages to reach 4th rd.
She needs to get her serve sorted out. If she manges to that she will probably has a good chance to stay in top 10
