Due to late entry, Marion will play qualies in Ponte Vedra, like Francesca Schiavone in Hobart 2009 and Agnes Szavay in Bogota 2009. She needs to play ties and has nothing to lose. Just play and have fun.
Yeah that's what Im telling myself. If the point was to embarrass herself, I think she shouldn't have bothered asking a QWC in Ponte Vedra. Tsss, will she ever stop having those inexplicable slumps during her seasons?
Im not looking forward to her having to play 3 in a row just to make the 1st round. Then she could get someone like Wozniacki or Cibulkova... It must be the mono, but i suppose we wont know because she barely lets on.
She plays when, honestly, she shouldn't be. She was injured at the FO last year. She played hampered at the YEC 07, and we all know what happened there.
I admire Walter. He has done a lot for her, but he also messes her up too. He's always messing about with her serve (12 double faults in this match) or with her body shape, and it's not good for her. She never has that secure game.
I want the 07 Marion back. The one who could hit as little as 4 errors per set, the one who usually had such a high first serve percentage. Yes, she had some shock losses back then, but that year was still the most consistent she has ever been.
