Aravane Rezai Takes Bali Title

Posted by gauloises1 on November 9, 2009

Could you make it up? Probably. Aravane Rezai takes the Bali title after her opponent Marion Bartoli retired with a left quad strain, 57 down. Shame for the last WTA action of the year to end with a retirement, but there you are. In Marion’s defence, she was clearly in genuine distress.

If I had a wishlist for 2010, it would definitely include Marion doing whatever it is that’s needed to sort her body out. Still, huge congratulations to Rezai, who’s had a great year and will finish inside the top 30 thanks to this win. Well deserved. You can find a nice piece on her, including life on tour as a Muslim, here.

And it just wouldn’t be Aravane if she didn’t dress for the occasion ….

    I just realized I don’t ever see Aravane wearing sleeveless on court.

    Can anyone find a pic where she is? She always at least has the tiniest cap sleeves.

    I’ve recently decided that Aravane rocks.
