First time in 81 years that a Frenchwoman has won Wimbledon!

... A good omen for les bleus?

Allez Amélie. I supported you all the way for the first time ever.

What a moment.

Yes but that's Tauziat. Did she even support les bleus aside from national obligation? Amélie actually talks about them.

I really hope so

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Yeah but it was worse in 1998 cuz France was the WC host nation and it was even sadder for Tauziat cuz it was the biggest achievement of her career. I wonder if that's why she sounds so bitter
