Will Amelie ever be able to win RG???

It's like the same old song...every year she plays great before RG, then she plays very good in the tournament, and then suddenly something goes wrong...
she was my favourite this year (as well as last year, etc...)
well, probably she'll be my favourite next year as well (that's what fans are for )

but today i seem to lose my hope...will she ever win at her home soil???

anyway: ALLEZ AMELIE!!!!!!

I think she'll win it at one point in her career. But I would bet that she'd get the AO title first before she gets this. I think she did handle the pressure better than she did before. This of course is considering that the pressure she had was more than that of last year. More people expected her to win this year's RG.

The last time she had an amazing run at the clay courts before RG, she lost in the 1st round. Although she just equaled her best performance, I think it is more of a step forward.

She really needs to be more aggressive. She is just so defensive in this tournament. She needs to attack and step it up. And usually this is hampered by the pressure and expectations laid on her. I would expect her to win this when no one would really expect her to win it. She's one of the best claycourt players out there, so her chances on clay are quite good.

She'll win it IF she wins another Slam first. She needs to know she can do it before she does it here, IMO. But this is her best performance ever here, and I think we're seeing slow progress.

But she looked devastated.

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

ez Amélie!

She's not gonna have such an "easy" draw every year.

Better concentrate on the 3 other slams, where she already reached the semis...

I think she never will, I don't know why she doesn't feed off the crowds, she plays like an idiot when it comes down to the big matches at RG

No slams for Amelie -- she's too much of a head case and too oft injured.
