This is the olympics and a very special event. Marion is a very special player and I could actually see her winning the olympics.She's France only legit shot at a ... 2R.
All countries invite the coaches. The French Federation is just mad that she was successful without their help while all the spoilt brats they've invested in are going bananas against Niculescu.
I agree she's silly, but the FFT is still unbelievably petty to exclude their only hope at a medal just because of one of their trivial rules :happy:I don't understand the big deal? She didn't play Fed Cup because they said her father couldn't coach her during it? Someone explain it to me. :lol:
If that's the case, then it's her own fault. She's the only player who wants her own coach during Fed Cup; that's why you have captains. 2 days without daddy isn't going to kill you Marion. He can still watch. :shrug:
Like obviously she's been successful without the FFT help, but so have a lot of other players.
Is tennis really different from other sports in that a player/team needs to qualify? I thought that was pretty much the deal for most sports.It's their loss, not Marion's. At this point in tennis one would think that the best players do not have to qualify to play the Olympics. Tennis is different from other sports in that way. The best player's resume's should already qualify them.
I'm pretty sure you have to qualify in at least volleyball, swimming and gymnastics. I thought it was standard practice. :shrug:Is tennis really different from other sports in that a player/team needs to qualify? I thought that was pretty much the deal for most sports.
Like she did in 2008 when she played Cincinnati with Amélie Mauresmo. She assumes : "never without my dad", even it's heartbroken.So she will play in Washington instead Olympics.
No :shrug: I can't think of a sport (summer or winter) where you don't have to qualify. The only difference in tennis might only be that there are rules by the ITF. Usually there are mostly national rules which determine who can compete and you can't.Is tennis really different from other sports in that a player/team needs to qualify?

Bullsh*t.Her own fault, I don't why in team competitions she always think she's better than the rest and require special treatments, but French's best hope is with Marion on grass especially,actually will France even qualify, I don't remember anyone else in top 64. h:
so what, like marion cant play a couple of matches without daddy.Bullsh*t.
She only wants what girls from other countries are getting, which is to have their coach with them. FFT are morons. :help:
