French tennis player Marion is very famous for her playing style of intense and unorthodox shots on the tennis court. She is usually differentiated as a hard hitting and aggressive tennis player and uses both hands to play forehand as well as backhand shots. Marion developed her style of both hands on the advice of her father coach. She started her career in a playing area which was not enough for playing tennis and there was even less space behind the baseline and it has been discovered that this is the reason why she likes to return serves from the baseline or inside. Marion had some problems with her forehand shots earlier, so when she started using both hands to play the strokes, her performance was improved.
