I'm actually more drawn to Marion knowing that she has that unusual trait

In her immediate post-match interview she sometimes looks at the camera instead of the interviewer. Does she always do that?

Counted about a handful of posters here(whom I'm familiar with) who have been highly critical of Marion in the past---and were won over these past two Slams by her valor and fighting spirit

Re: Marion Mows Down Her Foes on Grass

Shame about today

But she had some really good weeks (final in Strasbourg, SF at RG, title in Eastbourne and now a QF)

She had to fight so hard this week against LDL & Flavia. She was so close to defeat in R2 & R3. So it's pretty amazing how she managed to get as far as she did

Really didn't like that Marion had to play against Sabine as I like both players. But luckily it was in the QF and not in the 1st round as she had to receive a WC.

Re: Marion Mows Down Her Foes on Grass

It's a shame we didn't get to see her close to her best today like in the French Open QF but all the tennis was bound to catch up with her lately.

She's had a great run these past few months and given me two very memorable high quality tennis matches (the Govortsova and Pennetta matches)

And now she can take a well deserved rest until Stanford. I really want that US Open QF!

Re: Marion Mows Down Her Foes on Grass

Even some folks who don't like Marion are conceding that she looks less than 100% out there;will look forward to a medical report from one of you when I get back from class

Anyway,I'd hate to see that carry over into the woman's game;if it did,we could all ante up and pay for kickboxing lessons for Marion just to make sure her self-defense skills were up to par

It is funny though, that the umpire will allow somebody to blatantly try to put their opponent off like that. Yet if a towel slips off a chair courtside, the point must be replayed. Tennis is so weird sometimes and full of contradictions. If you shout something out during a point you'd be given it against you... unless the thing you shouted was "AAAAARGHH" in which case it's fine lol.

Also, watch how much you are allowed to do during points, without even hiding that you're trying to distract your opponent. Also, poor Federer that he's so good his opponents have to resort to this.





I really don't think that she deliberately incorporated the bouncing into her game to distract the opponent. It's just her thing to focus and keep her intensity. It's strange to me that fans of players who scream harder than Marion ever has, actually *during the points* are prepared to criticise her for something she does while waiting to receive. She bounces around during her own service games and between games too. If the opponent is distracted, it's their problem.

In fact, if the opponent gets distracted, they should try copying Marion to keep their own mind focused.
This is hilarious!
Also, remember what Radwanska and Michael Chang did to distract their opponents.

Re: Marion Mows Down Her Foes on Grass

LMAO @ Ferg xD

I was wondering about the doubles because I witnessed an incident at a league match where in a mixed match...the opponents where serving to the man and the lady from basically like swivelling over and back....the server shouts out " you cant do that.." and a row broke out LMAO. I was laughing alot :P

But I just wondered if our Marion did it - and she does :P Allezzzz!
