To Mauresmo's haters and doubters

Regardless of the final's results, Mauresmo has just proved she could again make a third Slam final, beating good players such as Ivanovic, Myskina and Sharapova (on grass!!).
So, no, she didnt get to the Aus Open's final "just because" of retirements...
I'm delighted she can finally silence you all.

I agree.

But, I don't understand that "so". It's a fact : she won the AO thanks to 3 retirements. Let's see today if she can win a GS in a more "normal" way.

Yes but she was leading before these 3 players retired. She was the fittest and deserved to win. It's part of tennis. The Aus open is pretty hard physically, you need a good preparation.
Today she's in another GS final, in England with different conditions.

I wrote "so" meaning it's not a coincidence, not a one slam final wonder this year.

I'm not a MOMO fan, but If MOMO wins I will respect her, b/c the Aussie slam is a cruel joke no one should have to win their first slam in that fashion. If she wins this fair and square she will prove that she deserves to be number One. So I guess I'll root for her. Go MOMO!

Oh, c'mon, we don't ask the number one to reach a final but to win the whole thing. And there were other tourneys before this one, tourneys where she lost tragically. For instance, a number one can't lose 1 an 2 against anybody
IF she wins Wimbledon(which won't happen), there will not be doubts anymore

Even if she wins, we will never know whether she would have won the Australian Open had it not been for the retirements. It doesn't matter. What ifs are such a dumb way of looking at these things. Amelie won the Australian Open because she was the best player in the draw - fitness is most definitely part of that. (And Nastya won her RG because she was the best player in that draw.. Maria won her Wimbledon title because.. you get the idea.)

Krajicek would not have beaten her I guess...

But Momo leaded before her opponents's retirement cause they were already injured! Don't turn the story in your way.

Wrong.
Against Clijsters it was very close, and she was leading in the 3rd set (not by far I agree), when she hurt her ankle.
Against Henin... how bad was she injured? will we ever know? bla bla bla... Let's not get into that again... But if you saw the match, she could certainly move, a lot...

I was not talking about the previous years, but 2006. Or since the end of 2005 to be more precise.
About the Number One thing... She's N1. Period. Now she doesnt win all the time, but hey, she's still N1, or has anyone overcome her yet?? Or do you want to change the WTA ranking system?
By the way, when Davenport was N1 last year, did she win a Slam? or the WTA Championships? No, but she was the most consistent. That's what it takes to be N1.
You're talking about doubts. Believe me, no doubt, she IS N1 whether she wins or loses today! I know you hate it but that's the way it is!

Oh that injury! The injury that took her to the SF! Yeah right her hip really look bad...

God, some people will say anything to take off credit from Mauresmo.

well, mauresmo will never be one of the best in my eyes.. I think the no 1 should control matches and be the one who either wins or loses the matches.. mauresmo lets the best palyers win or lose against her.. if venus, serena, sharapova, davenport, the belgians play their best momo will not win...

but she is smart to play serve and volley, because its a fact, she cannot control matches from the baseline with those top spin shots.. anyway, cmon and win today momo!!

Serena And Venus




SOFIA AND ALL THE OTHER SWEDES * Katarina Srebotnik * Pavlina Nola * Rita Kuti-Kis * Capriati & Seles to comeback * williams to destroy henin and momo
