Re: Marion Bartoli: TOP TEN PLAYER and FRENCH NUMBER ONE!
Marion is now 14. Her schedule includes Tokyo, Stuttgart and Moscow and probably Zurich and Linz.
Concerning fft ranking which will be published beginning of october, I guess Marion will remain n°1. Gap between Marion and Alizé is currently about 250 pts. Marion has 125-60 = 65 pts and Alizé 55 pts to defend. So Alizé needs to play semi final both in Tokyo and in Beijing with a very early Marion's loss in Tokyo. Marion will fight in order to avoid it.
Concerning end of year ranking, Marion has to defend Moscow, Zurich and Linz points when Alizé has nothing to defend. Fight will be very interesting.
It is possible that the struggle will finish in Quebec with a ranking closer to 10.
