ok so we're supposed to understand that she was simply disappointed now or what?

Sure, she had her chances but she lost the match. All those break points she didn't convert, only a few were on HER racquet.

Whatever, Amélie. Hopefully, you'll learn to give Serena credit next year.

imagine? we've seen her say stuff like this after just about every loss.

but that doesn't excuse amelie for saying serena was lucky (lightning doesn't strike twice) and didn't amelie have crowd support at wimbledon?

Yes, people would snark over then. JUST LIKE THEY ARE GOING TO OVER THESE :retard: Man, you people SUCK. Every thread "imagine if Serena said this?!" in the midst of people hurling insults :retard:

Anyways, Serena doesn't get "lucky", imo. You make your own luck. Serena is one of the mentally toughest players out there, and sometimes, that will make the difference.

France's Mauresmo buoyed by best season of her career
Sun Nov 14, 7:34 PM ET

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Amelie Mauresmo won't end the year atop the women's tennis world rankings, but the 25-year-old from France believes the best year of her career has left her poised to achieve even more in 2005.

"It has been my best year ever, and I feel proud about what I achieved. I feel I have plenty of other opportunities in the future," she said after falling in three sets to six-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams in the semi-finals of the WTA Tour Championships.

Mauresmo became the first French player to become world number one in September, holding the top spot for five weeks. Her 2004 campaign included five titles, at Berlin, Rome and Montreal and, in the previous two weeks, at Linz and Philadelphia.

She could have snatched the year-end number one ranking from American Lindsay Davenport by lifting the title in the season-ending event.

"It's not my main concern today, believe me," said Mauresmo, who has said that becoming world number one was a big confidence booster but no replacement for the Grand Slam titles still missing from her resume.

Although she suffered her eighth defeat in nine meetings with Williams, Mauresmo was encouraged by her performance against the former world number one.

"She really won the match today, I didn't lose it," Mauresmo said.

Even though she couldn't get over the hump - she failed to convert all 12 break chances in the third set - Mauresmo said she felt until the end that she had a shot.

"I really believed I could raise my level in that third set, and it was very, very close," she said.

"I think her game has really improved," Williams said. "Especially her serve. I don't think that she gave up in the match at all. I think she has improved a great deal mentally and physically, and her whole game in general has improved."

Davenport, considering the possibility of losing her world number one ranking to Mauresmo after failing to advance herself from the round-robin stage here, said the Frenchwoman would have been a worthy year-end number one, even without a Grand Slam title.

"I think she is the best player not to win a Grand Slam who is competing today," Davenport said.

And Davenport added that Mauresmo's past struggles to maintain her composure in tough matches may stand her in good stead as she pursues her goal of gaining a major title.

"I respect her a lot, because she makes no secret of what troubles her," Davenport said. "She is very open to what she needs to work on and how the pressure gets to her, and I think that is a very healthy way of dealing with it.

"She has got a lot of game. Even this year, reaching number one and winning all these tournaments has given her more confidence, and maybe that will help her along."

To go with her increased confidence, Mauresmo said, she has identified a few areas of her game to try to improve in 2005.

"The serve I still have to work on, because the consistency is not where I wanted it to be today," she said. "Also probably coming in, maybe being more effective in that.

"You know, I am going to be ready for next season," Mauresmo said. "I am really looking forward to 2005."

So instead of pulling a few quotes from God knows where (because you didn't bother list the article and source, much less put them in context). And because your main goal is to stir up crap, I'll post what's been verified here.

And again I'll add, all three players mentioned in this article had some very classy things to say about one another, and that's why ALL THREE of them are champions!

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

If Mauresmo thinks it was luck that beat her this time and the other 30000 times, she needs to wake up from denial

Doesn't she tape her own matches? Is it that hard to see that Serena was the one with the match in her hands in that 3rd set?! She was getting balls back when she should be acting like a no1 and attack

Yes folks - please READ. (Considering who started this thread )

And again, as I posted in another thread, somebody posts a few select words, without a source and without a link, and some of you just pounce on it like it was gospel. But then, again, it's usually the same posters who'll bash Momo no matter what it is.

Thank you, Sonja!

AMÉLIE ALWAYS
