Momo???

Because, uh,... I was watching a show recently and Momo is a disease that causes overgrowth and obesity

You have it wrong. That disease isn't Momo, it's called Casanovitis.

It doesn't come from that disease
In French "Mau" is to be pronounced like "Mo", so if you look at her name : MoresMo... You have your answer. But personally I dont like this nickname, I prefer to use her 1st name: Amélie

Hell, IS that her nickname? Or just something people on this board call her? I've never heard any of the players call her anything but Amelie.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

She has her own sports channel Momosport

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

Her real nickname is "Amé", all the french players call her that way, and all have their own nickname...

I have nothing wrong thanks... every disease has a shortened name for the most part.

the nickname "choker" was derived from the fact that Mauresmo cant win a big match in a grand slam.. even when the draw is upen up for her.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

It is obviously derived from Mauresmo, but I always thought it was faintly analogous with such other nicknames as "Guga".
