Bartoli Now Focusing on the French Open

Although she lost to Venus Williams in the semifinals in Miami, after a convincing second set, Marion Bartoli says she is not too disappointed. “I am still very proud of what I have been able to accomplish here. Reaching the final four along with three Grand Slam champions, it’s really something great. I have proven that I now had the level to go far in the big events, and that is very encouraging. Like Tsonga, Bartoli aims at scoring a big French Open fortnight. “I really want to do something big at Roland Garros where, apart from 1997 (where she reached the last 16), I have never played well. This semi-final in Miami should give me some needed confidence in that respect.”
