Marion, great performance. Keep this level up :D

Will tax play Fed Cup?

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:11 AM
Amaze! Wozniacki is no chance against this Bartoli! Allez! :cheer:

I am loving this slim Bartoli, and her squeaking in between points is so comical.

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:12 AM
What a way to end her singles career with a double bagel :sad:

Cake is so fit now :eek:

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:12 AM
Ouch. Demolition by Marion. Garbin seems so nice, you gotta feel bad for her...

So sad that it ends like this in singles for Tax. She just had nothing to offer on the court. Marion played very well off the ground, very explosive. Congrats to her on the win. And yeah, she does look more fitter now.

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:13 AM
Tax:sad: :hug:
That was her last singles match, sad to see her go out with a scoreline like that. Hoping for a good doubles tournament!

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:13 AM
I believe Tathiana announced her retirement after AO. :hug:

Marion : bicycle queen.

Marion didn't forget 2009 FO desillusion.

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:18 AM
Marion! :D Way to go!

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:19 AM
:unsure: She went in.

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:28 AM
First double bagel of the season?
Well done Marion! Very focused till the end to say the least. ^^ Hope she gets tougher practice before 3rd round.

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:38 AM
Hopefully she can keep this form up in her next matches, well done Marion:)

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:40 AM
Ouch! That had to hurt. Sorry, Tathiana, but way to go Marion.

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:41 AM
Marion, why so mean? :bigcry:

Jan 17th, 2011, 06:48 AM
Marion :worship:
that was truly amazing!

Jan 17th, 2011, 07:04 AM
Wow Marion is in fine form! But she could have given Tax a few games at least :o

good lord! :cheer:

8/8 on net points in the first set :eek:

Jan 17th, 2011, 07:38 AM
Good job Marion.

Jan 17th, 2011, 07:39 AM
Was Mr Brosnan in the audience?

Jan 17th, 2011, 07:42 AM
Go Marion :cheer:

Jan 17th, 2011, 08:00 AM
Tax confirmed to Marion that it was her last match of her career : http://www.fft.fr/open-australie/2011/?ID=6988
"...ą la fin du match, Tathiana m'a dit qu'elle prenait sa retraite du circuit."

Jan 17th, 2011, 09:48 AM
Didn't Smashnova also end her career by losing 6-0 6-0 at a slam...to Muller????
It's a rough way to go!

Jan 17th, 2011, 09:51 AM
In that category you can mention Sugiyama. She got bagelled and retired against Petrova.

Marion , on paper, has a very tough draw, but on this surface she has a chance to reach the semis (if Henin continues her form).

Jan 17th, 2011, 09:54 AM
Tax. :hug: She beat Marion at RG less than two years ago.

Jan 17th, 2011, 09:57 AM
Oi Oi Oi. :cheer:

Jan 17th, 2011, 10:00 AM
What a way to end her singles career with a double bagel :sad:

This reminds me of Anna Smashnova's last match...

Jan 17th, 2011, 11:08 AM
Marion :bowdown: The opponent wasn't exactly formidable but Marion was so focused on every point. :eek:
I hope she gets a bit more of a workout next match so she's not too overconfident to play probably Wickmayer.

Jan 17th, 2011, 11:13 AM
Bartoli can never be underestimated when she is on.

Jan 17th, 2011, 11:15 AM
Tathiana Garbin should stop now

Jan 17th, 2011, 11:16 AM
Good for Marion getting herself so fit. She is obviously in great form and will be dangerous this tournament and probably throughout the season, providing she stays healthy.

That said, I can't be happy when a player as classy as Tathiana ends up finishing her career getting double bageled. A very unsatisfactory and regrettable scoreline.

Anyone got pictures of the new and improved, trimmed down Cake Monster?

Marion :drool:

Jan 17th, 2011, 02:09 PM
:eek: Bartoli must have been promised two helpings of desert and a date with James Bond if she won her first round with a double bagel

Jan 17th, 2011, 07:40 PM
100% at the net :hearts:

Jan 17th, 2011, 07:55 PM
Oh Tax :sad: how much longer will she be playing doubles?

Good job Marion though :yeah:but maybe keep it up this week, unlike last :o?
