Cant help but feel if this is the start of her fall to mediocracy like JJ last year. The tournaments in the U.S. will tell a lot. I know Lucic used to be good, but when was the last time she beat anybody in the top 30, nevermind the top 10? Losing to a qualifier on apparently her favourite surface... oof. That choke last week was bad but this was worse.

Marion needs to fix that serve and be more aggressive this time last year her serve was nothing short of amazing and today she could barely get a first serve in when Marion serves badly she loses all rhythm, and she needs rhythm in her game, and then on top of that she had to play Lucic at her best which is unlucky i guess Marion will keep fighting obviously but before the serve is fixed she will have no confidence in her groundstrokes. very messy match today but as soon as Marion drops out of the top10 and has no points to defend, that's hopefully when she can relax and play better tennis. i'm still hopeful that she can have a good few months after this...
