What does Amelie Mauresmo have to do to win the French Open?

I just don't know. I really did not expect her to loose today. What do you guys think?

As she once said herself "Brain transplant"

Did she fall apart mentally or did the other girl play out of her mind?

Just like a tennis match, you have to go into Oscar night ready to kill, I ought to know, I lost 4 times in a row, but I finally came up with the gold on the fifth try. I know what it is like to be labed a "loser" but you can lose 4 times and win on the fifth. Never lose hope!

Get her head straight when ther's pressure (that includes pressure of winning a lower ranked player). Otherwise someone will be quick to take advantage.
Even though Elena played extremely well today, I'm sure Momo could have played better too. She should do something about the nerves.

sad.....fnerves got the better of her. If she couldn't do it this year, I think that's it. No GS for momo

How does she play on grass? Never really notice her in Wimbly.....

Justine Henin

Thank you.

Both.
Lena pressured the hell out of her with power, but it was evident that Momo could not implement her own power and the tricks to neutralize power of the opponent.

At Wimby Momo has gone as far as the semis, but only once. She won't win the French. Ever.

Amelie will win a major sometime, probably...but as long as the French Open is in France, it won't be that.
