Red face Could Amelie's domination be a bad thing for the tour?

Amelie has now won her last 15 matches and 3 tournaments and is by far the world's #1 player at the moment.

It's great for her and should be praised for turning her mental game around. Today she was in control mentally against Kim.

But, we don't want to see the same player win titles week after week. Domination is never a good thing and it's gets boring. Amelie has a great game to watch but if it all gets predictable =

This isn't a hate thread but I think it's necessary to discuss.

Amelie isn't dominating. Just a month and a half ago, she lost in the opening round to a Serbian teenager.

But, she has won five of her last six tournaments - Philadelphia, YEC, AO, Antwerp, Paris

Let them eat cake.

Mauresmo is ANYTHING but predictable!

Is nice to see her playing well and on a bit of a streak, however.

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!

you are overreacting... just cause she won 3 tournaments in a row doesn't mean she will DOMINATE the rest of the year. Besides, Amelie has an exquisite game to watch, I hardly think you could say her game is predictable.

Winning three tournaments is hardly domination.

This discussion is premature IMHO.

the rest of the tour needs too play, she's winning because nobody is playing and she know's it so i would not make too much of a big deal about her domination of the tour.

To you i say, Amelie deserves a long win streak, after the heartache and tough losses she has had to go through. Let her rack up as many titles as she is capable of winning, the number she could have had had she been a mentally tougher player for all these years.

Perhaps i am biased being an Amelie fan, but... let her have this, be it a year or just a few months. She is 26 year old, how much longer could her "domination" go on for?

Poor Amélie... Three months ago she was a choker, a loser, someone who would never make it.

Now she wins some matches, and it's no good either.

She's had a great winning streak - but I don't call it domination. It's not like she's been overwhelming players. Look at when she played Tati. And Kim shouldn't be downhearted. Just a point here and there was the difference. It's not as if the top players don't believe they can beat Momo.

It's a bit premature for World Domination threads.

She is awesome to watch!
