Didn't Hingis apologize? If yes, then Amelie should get over it and move on. Heck, everybody I know saids that she looks like a man. Sure it shouldn't be said in public, but it's reality. Hingis was still very young and people make mistakes. If Hingis apologized, I think Amelie should forgive her and move on.

Amelie's actually said that Hingis finally appologized (last year, btw) and that she's over it (tought to do when people insisit on asking about it again and again). That doesn't mean she has a new best friend.

I'm sure if she'd made happy noises, people would accuse her of not being genuine.

(don't know about your friends, but I've never mistaken her for a man. Then again, I actually LIKE women )

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Martina was a fantastic player but she always was very arrogant and rude with other players, specially when she dominated

I don't know who is "everybody", but you should change your relationships

Looking like a man, doesn't mean that people mistake her for a man.

I don't see the big deal. She had nothing to say, didn't want to get into the issue again, and you know those comments would have come up for the 39475209384752098547th time. Is done, over with; time to move on. It's the press who's looking to fuel the fire and good on Amélie for refusing to give them anything.

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!

There is nothing wrong with Amelie's response whether Hingis apologized or not. I'm sure she moved on...she doesn't owe Hingis any praise. I always say forgive but NEVER forget. Hingis meant that shit..she never should have said it in the first place.
