I've always thought that because Marion Bartoli's tennis is "unconventional" that she would be too, (perhaps she would bounce and shuffle in her chair while answering questions.) But, just like Jelena, that misconception was immediately put to rest during the WTA All Access Hour. I can't point you to anything she said, but she was just, for lack of a better word, lovely. If I could have seen her aura, it would have been a soft blue, which means: peacefulness, clarity and communication, truthful, and intuitive.
She was smart, (she DOES have an IQ of 175) sweet, and delightful to talk to.
After coming back from her calf injury in January, she has had great results, and she is also enjoying the game much more than she used to:
I honestly didn’t expect to be back that soon and that great because even the results went beyond my expectation to be able to do the final at Indian Wells. [In Miami] I lost in 3 sets in 3 hours to Vera Zvonareva who is number 3 in the world and still have a chance to win this match, and I was feeling tired from Indian Wells so I felt like if I would have had some normal days of recovery I would have been able to win this match. So really, I came back stronger and in a way it makes me stronger mentally b/c now when I am on the court I even battle harder b/c I am just so happy to be there.
On a side note, I know that there have been repeated questions about her "fitness" and whether that is true or not, I just feel like I should say that the camera clearly does add 10 lbs, because there was nothing "unfit" looking about Marion. Of course that is coming from just a mere mortal...
