Marino's mini-muscles doing big things

Homegrown talent moving up rankings, ready for first-ever main draw
Marc Weber, The Province

Rebecca Marino's mini-muscles are starting to yield some big results.

The 18-year-old tennis player from Vancouver was ranked 716th during this summer's Odlum Brown Vancouver Open, where she lost in the semifinal to Poland's Urszula Radwanska.

She's now ranked No. 471 and about to play her first-ever main draw match on the WTA Tour.

Marino came through weekend qualifying at the $175,000 Bell Challenge in Quebec City, and will face 34-year-old American Jill Craybas in her opening-round match today.

She attributes her soaring ranking, in part, to the strength and agility work she's been doing with former tour player Nina Nittinger in Switzerland. She met Nittinger through Vancouver physiotherapist and fitness coach Carl Petersen, who co-authored a book with Nittinger."She's been helping me with my fitness and I've been able to move a lot better on the court," said the 6-foot-1 Marino, who already has the serve and strokes to match some of the tour's bigger names. "Before, my muscles wouldn't show at all. Now [Nina's] like, 'You have mini muscles.'"

After the VanOpen, Marino reached the final of a $10,000 event in London, then won her first pro singles title at a $10,000 event in Italy.

She beat American Ahsha Rolle, South African Chanelle Scheepers and then Brenda Schultz-McCarthy of the Netherlands in Bell Challenge qualifying. Schultz-McCarthy is a former world No. 9 who won the Bell Challenge in 1995 and '97. She used to lay claim to the fastest serve in women's tennis.

"It was like bombs coming at me," said Marino. "I was just trying to forget she's a former top 10 and had won this twice.

"She had two three-setters before me, so I knew she'd be a little sore. I'm happy with the way I played and really excited to play my first main draw."

Marino, who deferred her acceptance into NCAA Div. 1 powerhouse Georgia Tech until '09, has almost exclusively been playing low-level tournaments -- $10,000 and $50,000 events -- but even winning one round at the Bell Challenge could change her approach.

"If you win a round here you get 20 [ranking] points, which is huge for me," she said. "It's the equivalent of winning something like four $10,000s."

Looks like she got her 20 ranking points. Sounds like a bit of a rough match in the 2nd round, but four straight wins is pretty good. :) If I'm looking at the rankings right, this should bring her up more than 100 places to about 360-ish.

Looking forward to seeing what she plays next. :cool:

Found a good article on the Globe and Mail site here (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20081031.WBTennis20081031125649/WBStory/WBTennis/). The first half is about Wozniak and Tetrault, the second half is about Marino. She's been training in Switzerland, and sounds very determined. :)

She has come along way. I am thrilled with all the Canadians in the top 200 but Rebecca I really feel has the 2nd most talent. I really think there can be 4 or 5 in the top 100 but, other then the Woz, Marino is a legit top 50 prospect.

I saw Rebecca in Auckland in Janurary this year, and I just have to say I think she is a huge talent. She was big and strong. Hit the ball hard with ok movement.

I think she will become a top 10 player in the future.

This girl has a very bright future ahead of her.

Good luck to her in NY :)

She will need to pounce on Pervak's serve.

She's my favourite of the 'newcomers' and I think she has the best chance for Top 100.

Iggy
Sep 1st, 2010, 10:34 PM
Wow, she held her own against Venus. It looked like she just ran out of steam in the second set. It's very difficult to hit that hard for over a set.
Venus gave her a pretty good compliment when she said "I know what it's like to play myself." I hope she continues to improve; she has the tools, and she's fun to watch.
Waiting to see pictures of this match on the official websites.

Great effort from Becca today. :D

I have the match recorded, but didn't get to see the whole thing. I caught the ending and the commentators seemed to be pretty impressed and thought there was nothing else she could have done. Definitely made a great account of herself out there.

Welcome to the new posters :wavey: Becca deserves more fans, so it's great to see you all here.

Quote from Bartoli:

"Rebecca gave me absolutely no chance," Bartoli remarked after the match. "If she plays like that every day she can be Top 20, Top 10 even. I felt she could put the ball wherever she wanted to and I had no chance to win the match with her playing like that. She served well; there was so much pressure for me to hold my serve."

She's been playing great since the US Open! Her record is 11-2 from US Open, Quebec and Saguenay!
If I looked at the numbers correctly I believe she had 312 ranking points before entering US Open qualification.
Since the US Open she had earned 300 points - almost as much as the entire 8 months before the US Open!!
Keep it up!

I am not sure if Wozniak is going to loose points this week but Rebecca is about to pass her for #1 in Canada. As a Canadian living in the USA I am very happy for her. It has taken her a year or 18mths longer then I thought but as I have said in this thread before this girl is solid top 100 talent and perhaps even top 50

Well without playing this week she stands at #106 in the world. And Wozniak lost a load of points and is down to about #125 or so. No more Quallies in grand slams for Marino! She must be so excited.

What has happened to Fichman? Her ranking has dropped 100+ since splitting with her former coach. He was one of the few who could handle her high-maintenance personality. She needs to get him back.

Fretchap
Oct 25th, 2010, 06:17 PM
Well she had a serious injury just before Roland Garros, so she made just about no points during the clay swing and came back lossing matches she probably expected to win so her confidence must have dropped down pretty low and that led her to where she is now. Gotta get her confidence back.

Yeah, I saw her lose badly to Albanese last week and she was lucky to get a retirement in the previous round vs. Erakovic. She always seems to be angry. The crowd applauded one of her winners and she looked up and made a fowl gesture to everyone. Don't think I'll be cheering for her anymore. I thought those Canadians were supposed to be funny and happy-go-lucky, but maybe she's from Quebec.

:lol: All Canadians aren't like Sharon. She personally isn't my favorite either, she's got a game that suits clay pretty well, lot of spin and gets most balls she can back into play, but that for sure isn't the most entertaining type of game. Plus, her negative attitude also is kind of :help: And no, she isn't from Quebec :lol:

Well British Columbia is not like Italy, clay courts are pretty rare. After playing (and losing a lot also) some challengers on clay in Europe last year (or in 2009) she said something like she went from hating clay to not disliking it too much :lol: Anyways, she's gonna make everything she can to improve her game on this surface, but it will for sure remain her weakest one for her whole career that's pretty sure.

As for tonight, I hope she can keep the balls in and serve well so that she gives Schiavone a good run for her money :)

Becca is playing quallies for IW. She is the nr 1 seed.

In Q1 she defeated Tatjana Malek 7-5 7-5

She said she was quite happy with today and hopes tomorrow will be even better :)


FQR will be against Petra Cetkovska. It is the 3rd match on court 8. First match starts at 10.00 am.

Good luck Becca :cheer:

She lost in the first round to Vesnina today. Is it just me, or has her serve lost a bit of zip after her abdominal tear?

Why did Marino not stay in Europe after Fed Cup and play Tourneys there? She really needs the matches on clay!

What is happening with Marino? Haven't hear anything from her since the Fed Cup.

Would have been nice to see her play in the qualies at Madrid and/or Rome.
