Completely agree with you if she's having so much trouble with the glare there's no point in her throwing up the ball blinding herself and risking a double fault and should she get the ball in on the serve and it comes back then she's struggling to see it so it's a very difficult situation. Smart decision if you ask me!

Her body language says yes. Her game says no. Still can't keep the ball in play.

After losing a first set like that, I don't know how Marion can make this competitive. Unless Serena gives away the second set like Sabine did at Wimbledon, it'll be over fast.

2-0 Serena in the second.

Blisters I guess, but no confirmation since there no side court reporter
I thought Brad Gilbert was court side.

She IS playing that badly.

41% first serve. 8 double faults. Countless unforced errors. 2 for 8 on break points.

Hopefully someone at least shows up for the tier 1 and slam tournaments.

Marion played the first set, on average, as well as she is expected to play. Given the way she lost it, a second set beatdown was inevitable.

Haematoma? What's that - a type of sponge cake or something? :shrug:

Sam Smith mentioned something about a haematoma having been removed from Bartoli's hand at some point and that's why she always plays with tape on her hand - have to say first I've ever heard of this mentioned anyone else heard of this from another source?

:wavey:

During Wimby, I heard that when she was younger, she cut open her hand and it was really bad, like almost nerve damage and that's why she's got the tape.

And she did not get any medical care, she just got a chat with the medical staff

She took some pills.

It is not fair to Bartoli to take a bagel in the 2nd set

She needs to hold.

Also, I want to see Serena practice how to close out matches

Some good quality points in the first set. Overall a decent match considering the mess that is the WTA tour these days. Nice stuff.

Congrats to Serena on her first WTA tour title since the WTA Championships at the end of 2009. Serena rarely ever wins these minor tournaments anymore.
