In order to go to Bali, She has to win an international event (Quebec or Osaka). In Between, she also has to defend a lot of points in Tokyo and in Beijing.

1st step : Quebec for the title.

Steadyniacki

At face value the draw is weak but there are some potentially tough matches there, Marino, Goerges, Mattek-Sands all in her quarter, Rezai/Sabine also dangerous

Lighter
Sep 12th, 2010, 01:01 PM
In Quebec, courts are really, really fast like in Bali. Of course, she can loose a match vs Goergeous, Mattek or Aravane. But courts there really suit to her game.

So, we will see match after match.

1rst one vs a qualifier.

Marionated
Sep 16th, 2010, 02:58 PM
I think a lot of her recent losses may have really affected her confidence:

.Lost to Azarenka after being up a set and a break, having had a point for a double break
.Lost to Hantuchova, having had 3 mps
.Lost to Azarenka again, had mulitple set points in the second set
.Lost to Razzano, led 4-1 in the first set

And I think that she was quite confident going in to the match vs Pironkova at Wimbledon.

And her second serve is an absolute joke.

Overall, it's not been a great year.

And her second serve is an absolute joke.Marion's post-match comments hinted at what you mention above.Marino blew her off the court with 3 aces in Rebecca's first service game,and Marion said that she felt a lot of pressure to hold her own serve with Marino serving so well

It's weird but I'm not even that disappointed.

I guess it's because I had no idea about who would win. Ivanovic is so unpredictable.Yeah,you're right;Ana has the emotional maturity level of an 18-year-old,partly b/c she had some lazy shit parents who only coddled her and taught her nothing about adulthood...so she's learning on the fly and that manifests itself in her inconsistency.I'm not saying that Marion wouldn't have won anyway,but there were lots of changes to the match schedule and venue,and Ana doesn't psychologically adapt to those kinds of changes very well....Is Marion not entered for Moscow or Luxembourg??

Amidst all the complaints about Caro being an unworthy #1,I'd like to offer what I feel is a stronger case: Schiavone being an unworthy YEC participant.Though I can't be unbiased,lots of folks agree with me that a healthy Elena would've knocked off Fran in the RG semis...then Fran would've missed out on a huge amount of YEC points...and she never would've qualified.To me,Fran is a reasonably-talented fringe player...like Pennetta,Peer or Na Li...that is,good enough to give tough matches to elite players...but no threat to ever REACH that elite level.Tonight Fran lost 6-0,6-2 to Zvonareva in less than 55 minutes---there's no shame whatsoever in losing to Vera...except Fran fell to 0-10 lifetime vs. Bepa and many of those matches weren't even close.Though Vera is a legit Top-tenner,she is NOT the overwhelming caliber of player who easily wipes the floor with other gals in the top 10.Fran's piss-poor H2H mark here is a heavy indication that she's a full layer below true top-notch players.

Having said all that,let me be clear that I don't dislike Fran as a person...and I'm glad for her that she had her moment of glory at RG...her post-match celebration with her supporters was a sweet story in this year's sports scene:)....It's simply a case where I don't think she's all that talented:shrug:

I dled Beijing match vs Ana as i was far from an internet connection during this match.

This day, Ana's forehand was awesome when Marion's 1st serve % wasn't sufficient. And she made strategic mistakes in playing Ana's forehand which was on fire, even on return of serve.
2-1* 15-40 : Marion to serve and Ana played an awesome passing shot with forehand. In the same situation in Cincy, Caro made a huge mistake.

With her normal game level, i think that she will reach final.

And on fast surface, don't forget that Marion defeated Shahar and Kimiko in Bali 2009 and Sam in Stanford 2009. So, we can hope a good result.

At least, Marion is still French number 1 in 2010. It's funny to see her end year ranking :

2006 : 17
2007 : 10
2008 : 17
2009 : 11
2010 : 16 or 17
2011 : I expect a big year like every 2 years.
