In 1998, Amelie, as a qualifier, made her first WTA tour final in Berlin at the age of 19, beating Davenport (#2) and Novotna (#3) en route (her first Top 10 wins). In final she lost to clay court specialist Conchita Martinez. She was the lowest-ranked player (No.65) to beat two of Top 3 in same event and was also the first qualifier and fourth-lowest-ranked woman at the time to reach a Tier I final. 10 years later, after an impressive show in Fed Cup in Japan, I'm sure she'll do something great on the first big tournament held on red clay!
