Marion is playing Open GDF this week and she has as expectations to find her level & gain confidence thanks to the crowd's support. She has been given a very clement draw to lead her at least to the SF :
BYE vs 3 - BARTOLI, Marion (FRA)
WC - PIN, Camille (FRA) vs CIBULKOVA, Dominika (SVK)
CORNET, Alize (FRA) vs QUALIFIER
RAZZANO, Virginie (FRA) vs 8 - BONDARENKO, Alona (UKR)
Honestly, if she doesn't do well here, I don't know what could help her to get back into form. There are possible matches between French girls, not easy considering that the crowd will be neutral but Marion has the advantage. Indoors & fast surface are on her side ... so I would be disappointed with anything but a SF. Then there could be a possible meeting witbh Chakvetadze, Azarenka or Mauresmo who are not in their best form (except Vika maybe).
Why not a first big title after all?
Cmon Marion, forget this AO setback & think positively! Allez.
