Re: Marion Claytoli on mission!

Until Safarova has proven that she has regained her form(which will take her more than one match),I'll remain convinced that Marion is the better clay-court player--and that she should spank Lucie's juicy buns in this matchup.This is a deep field so Marion has to do MORE than just win;she must establish some rhythm to build her confidence...I wonder if Marion would enjoy Henry James.

Marion looking determined, Walter looking content and watching on from his comfortable red chair. Perfect start.

Re: Marion Claytoli on mission!

At the change of ends, Marion taking a breather.

Safarova held her serve to make it 3-1, and now 0-30 on Marion's serve. Impossible to keep up the level to make it a double bagel hopefully Marion can just hold serve now.

Re: Marion Claytoli on mission!

Marion came back to 30-30...then 4-1. Safarova comfortable in the next to make it 4-2.

Re: Marion Claytoli on mission!

Pretty good match from Marion . 9 winners for 8 UE, Lucie made the rest (more than 20 U.E ). She was extremely relaxed & determined to win during all the play while Lucie was a bit over excited. There were very few rallies, so it's hard to judge Marion's entire game.

What I can say is that her serve was extremely effective with nice variations of zones & a high 1st serve percentage. Marion always needs a good first shot to feel comfortable in the points, so that's what she did, no useless risks, a deep ball all the time with a good defense when Lucie was playing better & some smart shots (including a fantastic moonball with a huge spin!).
Marion got a bit more shaky after 6/0 3/0 hitting shorter balls & missing many returns. She was again too much inside the court to retrieve Lucie's first serve, it was too audacious from her.
MP was a missed return on a very low 2nd serve of Marion. Good for us .

Overall a very serious match, Marion had her gameplan & seemed to be in control of her shots. Her level of confidence is there, she has worked on her game to play on clay, you can see it. Lots of positive things to take from this meeting. It's good that it was so short too, Marion tires herself quite quickly when she plays in the sun. So it couldn't have been better.

Tomorrow, sightseeing for Marion who will go to the zoo & inside the city (and in its cafés!). She was very happy, but showed no signs of relief in her interview. She endorsed her role of top 15 perfectly, as if she always knew she would get through.

Bravo Marion!!! She will probably face Agi in her next match. A very good claycourter who hits very hard but her serve hasn't been working so well this year. She has her chances!

One more thing, she changed her outfit, now she is in black & dark blue a bit in country style but she really looked nice & fitter .

Re: Marion Claytoli on mission!

Not surprised to see that Marion handled Safarova so easily and we'll see if she can duplicate that form against the rising Szavay IF they meet(young sprouts such as Agnes can be so unpredicatable).Marion's only meeting with Yan ended in injury retirement so I'd like to think that this won't hurt her confidence any in case this matchup re-curs...as for Iceland's observation that Marion is getting fitter:...as if I needed any further temptation.
