Re: December practices

Marion has decided to skip Paris OGF tournament. She wants to focus her energy on Dubaï tournament. (frm Régis Brunet IMG France in tennis magazine December '08))

As expected, Marion's father said no to Nicolas Escudé : http://sports.nouvelobs.com/cmc/scan...855.html?popup

Incompatibility in what respect?Is this for the same reason that existed before with Goven or is this because of Dechaume...or is it a combination of both?(perhaps there's even a neew reason that I'm unaware of)

Re: December practices

Im really disappointed about these two decisions made by Marion. Refusing to play Fed Cup and to compete in a French tournament tell really much about how individualistic Marion is ... Really shocking, it's as if she were doing everything to avoid contact with the French team.
I know the calendar completely sucks ... still, she could have made an effort here.

Re: December practices

Maybe you see things through the lense of patriotism Iceland but i'm sorry friend you just not seeing this as it is, another snub of the Bartoli way.

But even if it was taht she simpl didnt want to represent France, that's her prerogative.

Re: December practices

Explanation is very clear now. Nicolas Escudé drew Mr Bartoli yesterday afternoon:
"I did not know the ins and outs of the case. He explained his method of training (fonctionnement). I found it more than respectable, especially since it has produced results, but totally incompatible with the French team because inapplicable inside a group. "

Everyone has defended his arguments. It's just a question of incompatibility.

Re: December practices

A shame. I think her game is so well suited to the courts at the Paris open.

Not a shame. Just a logical decision.

Oh. I didn't know Dubai was a higher level tournament than Paris now. I just knew they were both tier 2's this year.

At times Marion's willingness to be special is a bit boring, it's really a shame that she only sees her career as her job. Well take it as patriotism, but I don't understand how can somebody refuse to play an event on her home land. Some players would love to have such an opportunity and Marion doesn't take it. Yeah yeah she has the right to do what she wants but when you are a public figure, you create expectations, emotions, you communicate with the crowd, this is part of the pleasure of playing... It's not very generous from Marion to turn her back from Paris. People will be disappointed, well I am.

As regards her schedule, I would say that it's not even a smart choice. Dubai will be a tough event, no way she gets seeded so no easy draw. I wish she played Paris & Memphis. She always does well on fast surfaces.

Voilà, that's my opinion, don't bash me for criticizing Marion. She is my favourite tennis player. It's just that at times I wish she would act differently.

I agree with all this actually.

Regarding Fed cup, tbh it doesn't mean much to me. If Marion was British and declined to play, it wouldn't really bother me in the slighest. I just don't see it as a really important event , but I can see how others think otherwise.

I just hope Marion doesn't get booed at the French open

Re: December practices

No me too, I couldn't care less about Fed Cup, Im totally fine with Marion's refusal ... but I can't get over the fact that she doesnt play in Paris. I had my tickets ordered already, it won't feel the same without Marion.

Re: December practices

It's possible that Marion doesn't want to be criticized by French medias and crowd cause fed cup.
