Marion.

Great comeback from 1-4* down in the second!



But fix that serve!

Re: Aussie Open R1: (16) Bartoli def. South 6-2, 6-4.

Melanie actually put up a good fight and should take a lot of positives from this match.

She started the match well, winning her first service game to love then having break points on Bartoli’s serve. It all went down hill from there however. Marion started striking the ball very well and Mel could barely hit the ball in court by the end of the set.

The second was a lot closer. Mel went through a purple patch 1-0 down, winning 4 games in a row, hitting some screaming winners that any top 10 player would be proud of. The winners turned into errors again after and Marion fought back well.

Winners/UE;
South - 18/34
Bartoli - 14/23

I think Melanie is a coaches dream. Everything is already in place. Great serve, powerful groundstroke’s, very motivated and decent volleys. She just needs to learn how to control her game, get fitter and work on the mental side. I think she is very worthy of a place in the top 100 which I am sure she will achieve this year.

Re: AO2009 1r: Marion Bartoli defeated Melanie South 6-2 6-4

Melanie South is completely useless...she does not deserve to be Top 100!

to lose a set from 1-4 to the biggest choker on the tour says a lot!...


anyways, at least i can take comfort in knowing it was Marion who beat her....anyone else and i would have been furious for days after...now i am only furious for an hour or so

you'd better take the title now, Marion!

Re: AO2009 1r: Marion Bartoli defeated Melanie South 6-2 6-4

From 4-1 up in the second set Mel just faded. She was playing so well in that set up till that point

First set was horrid from her though. Couldn't hit a first serve or a forehand at all after her first service game.
