Re: Marion's Road To Flushing Meadows 2008

It seems like yesterday--2006 in Japan,I think--when Marion finally broke her oh-fer against the gorgeous,modestly-ranked Dushevina.She's only played Sugiyama once in about four years(Zurich 2006 was the last time),so most of the losses are ancient history,career-wise.We've all learned how hard it is to predict Marion's play,but the win over Anna shows that she's capable of beating Top 10 players again! We'll see what tomorrow's journey on the Marion Roller Coaster Ride brings us.

Re: Marion's Road To Flushing Meadows 2008

exactly BG, she can easily win against Ai. She's good against lesser opponents but i don't think she'll be able to beat Marion if she plays as well as she did against Chakvedatze

Re: Marion's Road To Flushing Meadows 2008

No not at all. It was simply the shock of Keothavong beating Sania..

I love tennis, but I have no other favorites.. no second third fourth fifth favorites. Only Marion for me. My number 1! my only one.

Put it in perspective:Keothavong has made it past the 2nd Round ONCE in her entire career,at Tier 3...can't believe it's rated THAT high...Kolkata last year.Since she has ZERO shot at winning the tourney,you may as well cheer for Marion.

At this point I'm not sure what to expect,Super M;my hopes tell me that Sugiyama is a shadow of her former self(zero titles in the last three-odd years)...but then your "mercurial" word keeps popping into my head....I still hate the name "Flushing Meadows" btw;someone needs to "flushing" that title down the toilet!

You guys are lucky to have seen the match. Sigh. My connection is diabolically slow.

Re: Marion's Road To Flushing Meadows 2008

Btw,Marionettes,in case our queen advances to the Stanford final---VERY do-able---don't be deceived by the score of Serena's current match.Serena is simply bored and often plays lethargically when she doesn't think her opponent is capable of beating her.She'll almost certainly raise her focus against Marion.This doesn't make it an impossible task(we're not on grass here),it merely heightens the stakes.

What title do you propose then BeeGee.

Six and a half hours 'til Marion's semi final. Me and Bartoli Bear better get some sleep now to be up in time for the match.

Re: Marion's Road To Flushing Meadows 2008

This sloppily organized webpage went offline for a few hours....Since then,Serena has retired with a seemingly-legit knee injury that bothered her the whole match,and the sassy Super M is resting up with some beauty sleep that'll have her lively enough to follow Marion's match despite the time difference in England.

To answer her question,the USO is located in the NY borough of Queens,so a better name,in MY opinion,would be:Queens' Championship Courts...it might not be EVERYone's favorite but it's a HELLUVA lot less dorky than "Flushing Meadows".

Just for the record,the reproduction of my 'dialogue' with Marion came straight off the top of my head,UNPLANNED,following the match with Keothavong;it was a by-product of Bartoli-inspired imagination.

My thoughts exactly; this is a golden opportunity for her with Serena out. However, she has to get to the final first. Now I know Ai is a good player but Marion should beat her because of Ai's lack of serve and power; I don't really think she has the weapons to beat Marion nowadays.
