Marion deserved it, she did EVERYTHING to lose this match, 17 DFs for example including several on GPs. She wasted 2GPs at 75 44. I don't know what to say, I don't even want to congratulate Petra, you just have to appear on the court to beat Marion.

2 possibilities now for Marion :
1. Taking a break or even stop this season to be back in shape.
2. Eating more crêpes in Birmingham and going to hell in Wimbledon.

Please Marion. :rolleyes:

Although I don't like her much, it's painful to see poor Marion being humiliated by just about everyone. The fighting spirit that got her past Henin in Wimbledon is totally gone.

Did Justine's double bagel thrashing do the trick? :sad:

Get a serve, please, Marion. A new start that does not only include Walter.

Being bagelled by a player who was double-bagelled just a week ago isn't a great result.

Like I said in the other thread, this is an impressive win for Cetkovska. After being double bageled by a Top 10 player at RG, she comes right back and hands out a bagel to the next Top 10 player she faces.

Marion needs to go back to competing mainly in Tier IV and III events thats what she was good at. Since Wimbledon she has had no sucess in Tier I and II status. She's just not good and fit enough, her Wimbledon points have just saved her all year.

Jun 11th, 2008, 04:02 PM
Trying too hard to serve, maybe because she doesnt/cant run about the baseline anymore.

This isnt good. But she can turn it around. I just dont know how long she will take to do that.

can't wait to see her result in Wimbledon and if this awful streak of bad results will continue after Wimbledon when the pressure will be off (somehow)

this is pathetic
I don't feel sorry , though , cause I don't really like her arrogance

daniela could have beaten bartoli on one foot today :o

I agree that the pressure will be off if she drops in ranking but she will also get worse draws and have to beat better players to get through a few rounds so she could continue to drop and drop. Presumably Marion has never got over the mental shock of that Wimbledon final and still can't quite believe she should be in the top 10. I think she will do very well to bow out in the last 16 of this Wimbledon but she could well lose in the first round. Watch out for her draw!

Petra is on the up and up. This time last year, she was mainly on the ITF tour, but she is really making breakthroughs now with her last 16 result at Roland Garros being outstanding. She has not let her Ivanovic double bagel upset her. Confident players like her can smell the blood of a struggling top player like Marion and she could get further in this event as there is only Camille Pin next.

No she isn't, not that its really relevant. I just don't understand how you can dislike Marion so much that you actually take pleasure in seeing her struggling. That's just kinda sad IMO. But whatever. If Marion slumping makes you happy, then great. Good for you.

And yes she probably could beat Marion blindfolded and on one foot. ;)

Watched that match live on my visit there and Marion was utter utter crap, never seen such dire tennis, I am afraid its not looking good for defending the wimb finalist position.

Petra was solid and served well, she deserved the win and was totally dominant in that last set, obviously.

Her serve today woulda made Elenas 2004 serve look good.

I cant remember hardly seeing any 1st serves in and there were many doubles, often 2 in a row.

she couldnt keep ball in play for much

Petra played really well, mixed up her game nicely. Marion though, serve was terrible and by the end just wasn't interested at all. I thought at 1 set all that was fair on the balance of play but from then on in it just snowballed.
