One of my favorite players, Marion Bartoli, was thrilled to hit with her hero, 14-time Major winner Pete Sampras, at the 2012 Bank of the West Classic. Here, at the 2012 Mercury Insurance Open she talks about how much she treasured that experience…and how Serena Williams crashed the party! :) She also talks once again about her passion for art and reading. I haven’t actually seen any of Marion’s artwork. I don’t know if she’s ever made her work public. I’d like to check it out. I give her credit no matter if it’s professional quality or not.
