Oh shut up, Brebis in 100% fangirlmood...Marion was all except a coward !!!

One of the few who still had an agressive game, one of the reasons her body couldn't take it anymore.

Her father is a doctor and i'm sure he said it was "enough"...and what a great way to stop with a

WIMBLEDON-PLATE....BRAVO et VIVE MARION !!!

Hehehehehehehe LOL .  Hey Tiger that is brilliant.  And I bet you Jimmy was pissed because she hadn't practised enough and she claimed she was too busy and didn't need it.  He just wanted to save himself the embarrassment of being made to look stupid when she loses and blames her coach.  So, who's next ?  Who will put up with her bullshit?  Notice on the homepage that she is opening a sugarpova range of accessories in a New York store next week.  Practice!!!!, who has time to practice.  


Just imagine the convo.  Jimmi: 'Not a good start. We'll need to put in some serious practice next week'. 


Maria: 'Oh sorry Jimmy, I have to be in New York on monday.  Have a sugarpova opening to do.' 


Jimmy:  Okay, when is that?'


Maria:  Tuesday, but I'll be busy on Wednesday with Nike and Head as well'. 


 Jimmy: 'Any time at all to practice?'


Maria:  Maybe at the weekend we can do some hitting out at the grounds'.  


Jimmy:  Do what the hell you like, we're through.  Get yourself another trainer who will jump to your command'.

...  I Absolutely and totally agree with you, Tiger !!  I try to be respectful, but Marion a coward?  One of


the most stupid and blind things I have heard recently, Brebus!   This girl was a one-of-a-kind


package, whose vigour and flamboyance I will greatly miss on the tour.  Her different pains and ailments


were too many to mention here.  For the time being, she is spent.  Will she change her mind?  Many


have.  But Marion is her own kind of girl.  Time will tell.  The best to you, Marion.

Cincinnati, Ohio:  Fourth seeded Agnieszka Radwanska
pulled out of the Cincinnati Masters tournament on Thursday to attend the
funeral of her grandfather in her native Poland.

"Unfortunately, my
grandad passed away last Sunday, the funeral is Saturday and I need to be
there," Radwanska said. I'm disappointed not to continue with the tournament
especially due to my form this week."

Radwanska was scheduled to play a
quarter-final match against defending champion Li Na of China on
Friday.

Li now advances directly to the semi-finals where she will face
an undetermined opponent on Saturday.

On Thursday, Radwanska won her
third-round contest over Elena Vesnina 6-0, 6-2 while Li beat German Angelique
Kerber 6-4, 6-4.

Radwanska's father is her former tennis coach and her
younger sister, Urszula, is also a professional tennis player.

"It was a
difficult decision but I need to go home and be with my family," Agnieszka
said.

"That's the way the world works... right now." --Maria Sharapova at 17

Everytime Maria hits the ball, she appears to be hitting it as hard as she can, without exception.  She should try changing the pace every once in a while to keep her opponent honest and to feel her out as well, especially if her "no holes barred" stategy of attacking isn't working against a particular opponent.

CINCINNATI, OH, USA - The stars of the WTA and ATP World Tour have been reacting to Marion Bartoli's sudden retirement announcement in their press conferences in Cincinnati. Read on...

Serena Williams: "Marion Bartoli is such a great fighter and she has a great attitude. I remember the first time I saw her, I was actually in Paris for the Paris Indoor Championships. It was a long, long, long time ago, probably in the early 2000s, and I just remember her being so young and working so hard, and that was her whole career. It just shows you how much and how far you can go by working so hard. She's had a great career by winning Wimbledon as well - it doesn't get better than that."

Victoria Azarenka: "Everybody has to respect it because it's Marion's life, Marion's career. I think it's very brave. She was chasing her dream for such a long time and when she got it, it felt good.

"She's a great competitor. She's always been great on the tour. She's a very different player from everybody else. I have to give her a lot of credit for making so much of her career. And it's been a pleasure to play against her. She's a very challenging opponent. And we're all going to remember her as a Wimbledon champion, so I think that's a very good memory to have. I wish her all the best."

Li Na: "I think I was the last one playing that night, so I may have been one of the first to hear the news, but anyway, when I heard the news, I was a little bit shocked. I mean, just a month and a half ago she won Wimbledon. I thought, 'She should have a lot of confidence right now to win more titles.' But at the same time I can understand this, because of course you've got a lot of pressure, and she always worked pretty hard. Anyway, she has decided to retire. I really hope she will enjoy life."

Rafael Nadal: "It was a big surprise. But she feels that it's the moment, so the only thing that we can say is congratulations to her for the career that she had. And that was amazing that she finished her career with a Grand Slam title - winning Wimbledon a few months ago is just great. I wish her all the best for the rest of her life and big success in the new projects that she will probably have."

Roger Federer: "Everybody who announces their retirement should be very happy and proud of what they achieved. It comes clearly at a time when maybe you wouldn't expect her to do so. But when somebody takes that decision, you can only be happy for that person, not sad. Clearly her fans are going to be disappointed, but you look back at a long, tough, grueling career, she can do that too.

"She had a great work ethic. For that reason I congratulate her for the difficult step to retire."

Andy Murray: "She worked exceptionally hard to get to where she's got to. She deserved to win a Grand Slam, and maybe it was the right time for her to stop because of how hard she needed to work. But it was obviously surprising because you don't see it that often in sport where people kind of finish on the top, in a way. But it's nice to finish your career as Wimbledon champion, that's for sure."

An other slap in the face for Maria as Azarenka won against Williams. Williams did this deliberately to demotivate Maria ?
