Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

Yes, this serve is a hindrance to her...and she had such a powerful serve before too.

Allez Marion at the AO! I hope she makes it to the 4R at least...

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

Today in l'équipe, a lot of answers to questions. In fact, she expected nothing from Shenzen as she was not ready for competing, too tired. She has worked a lot physically in Switzerland during 6 weeks and in Dubaď the last 2 weeks before Shenzen. She says that this preparation has been the most intensive she never has. Goals :
- More power in hitting
- More power in the legs
And a little change in serve motion with a more profiled feet positionning. Anyways, she knows that she needs to stay on base line in order to be more agressive.

She's now in Melbourne. So, wait and see now.

Even on clay....remember Strasbourg 2011. If she defeats AMG, draw is open.

Pretty good draw. But AMG is looming.

At least there is no Zheng

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

It all depends on Marion whether this is a good draw or not. I think all those players (baring Rogowska) have the ability to counter-punch Marion to death like people have in Melbourne before.

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

Marion will open up against Medina Garrigues, which is a tricky start imo. The seed in her section is Ekaterina Makarova, who is a very dangerous player on a good day.

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

And for the ones still in doubt with long Marion's training, look at this schedule : http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/.../practice.html

On court 17, Marion has started her training for half and hour, 2 hours lonely and the 3rd hour with Petra Kvitova.

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

And 4th hour with Gilles Simon : http://www.fft.fr/les-francais-lopen...e-sur-la-vague

Double mixte pour “Gilou“ et Marion.
Marion Bartoli et Gilles Simon se sont transformés chacun en sparring de luxe l’un pour l’autre ce samedi ŕ Melbourne Park. De 11h ŕ 12h sur le court 17, la 11e joueuse mondiale et le 16e au classement ATP se sont en effet entraînés de concert, “Gilou“ ne se privant pas, malgré une douleur au cou tenace, pour faire faire ŕ la n°1 française quelques diagonales bien cadencées.

Re: Off Season + Australia - 2013

Many french journalists in Melbourne = press conference

A lot of questions about Fed cup and tax issues (big big french current subject) : http://www.rtl.fr/actualites/sport/t...ent-7756815987

And video on Eurosport questions about preparation and especially about the serve : http://video.eurosport.fr/tennis/mar...13/video.shtml

She explains she modified ball toss, more in front of her. During training, she confirms that it's working.
