Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

For me

A grand slam QF, preferably at the US open
Another Premier title (or at least an international title)
No tanking
Minimal retirements
To beat a players she's never beaten before but lost to multiple time
A top 15 end of year finish

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

To answer your question,I don't have the first f--king clue what to expect/hope for.....You can see by my sig that I'm drawn to unpredictable,hopelessly inconsistent WTA Queens....I guess that I hope for Marion to 'pull a Schiavone' in 2011.I don't think that Fran is truly Top 10 caliber....Top 20 or Top 15,maybe...but that's her ceiling....I'd say that she was very lucky with some draws this year and,if Elena hadn't been injured,Fran's run would've stopped in the semis at RG and she would've missed out on YEC,almost for sure.I don't dislike her as a person;I simply don't feel that she's as good as her current ranking.....Basically,if Fran can do it,then Marion can catch some breaks,too,and shock the world.....What if Venus had had THIS year's injuries in 2007??....We'd be saluting 'Wimbledon Champion Marion Bartoli'.....sigh,etc.

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

- To actually play stuff and stop thinking that shes too good for MMs. Her schedule backfired massively this year.
- To stop playing New Haven.
- A title.
- Top 20 finish.
- Stay above that bitch Rezai for the year. (like that'll be hard after Madrid )

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

To at least play Monterrey,Mexico(hard court) if she's not in the mood for clay(Acapulco,Mexico).Since Marion didn't come back this year,she's still defending champion...in a manner of speaking

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

ok now she is sure to finish top 16 this year
she has no points to defend first week in 2011 and with retired Dementieva and injured Aga she will be in top 16, for sure i hope, in AO.

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

Marion is probably now like every year far from tennis on a beach (Maldives, Mauritius or Seychelles, ....). The only thing we know is that she will offer one of her racquets for a good cause (telethon : genetic diseases) in Divonne les Bains (her team in France) december 4th : http://twitter.com/bartolifanblog

And that she will modify her schedule like she said after US open.

As long as she's competitive, she will be focused on the big win (like Fran). She was so close in 2007 and she keeps in mind that she can do it in a short run.

Forgot to add: I'd prefer that Marion would be competitive enough that we could focus on cheering for her victories......instead of hoping for others to lose

I agree with this! I think we need some more positivity - allthough it needs to start with Marion herself as there's only so much dissapointment I can take before I get mad!

'Disappointment' has one 'S' and two 'P's,Amigo....but I think that I see your point.Marion has to do something pronounced to show us that she's headed for positive results if she expects to get maximum enthusiasm from us.I've given up on her replacing Pop with a normal coach,so she'll have to drum up something else to improve on last year's unsteady course

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

It just seems to me that her career has stalled.

Year end rankings:
2007 10
2008 17
2009 11
2010 16

And she probably only has a few good years left in her.

I think that has more to do with Marion's mental state than her age...as of now,at least

Already voted.

1 on my list

She won't win most hated but will probably be in top 5.
