An interesting correlation between Mauresmo and Novotna

Both Amelie and Jana brokethrough and won the season ending championships (Jana in '97, and of course Amelie last year), and won Wimbledon the following year.

I guess these are two players that were constantly hounded by sections of the media (and tennis fans) for their inability to perform at the highest level in pressure situations and big matches, and once they took that big step of winning the prestigious YEC, it just seemed to pay off for them and give them that extra confidence to get that Slam monkey off their back.

Also Jana and Amelie are both lesbians as well. The lesbians have dominated Wimbledon since the 1960s.

There is something else actually.

They both won Wimby when the French soccer team was in the world cup finals the next day.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?

I don't think Amelie would be in Jana's league. BTW, Jana looked leaner and taller(?) in her doubles match than she had when she was competing.

Interesting enough is that these players are labeled as mentally weak, well you can add Gabriela Sabatini and Kim Clijsters as players that are/were mentally weak but as correlation they won the Masters first than a grand slam. The same applies to Jana and Mauresmo.

Gabriela Sabatini 2006 HOF
18 Grand Slam SF´s, Won 27 titles, 1 GS Sin, 1 GS in Dubs,2 Masters
Sabatini vs Martinez ?
Seasons in the top ten: Sabatini 10 Conchita 9

Seasons in the top 5: Sabatini 6 Conchita 5
Straight seasons in the top 5: Sabatini 6 Conchita 4
Tier II and above titles
Sabatini 24 Martinez 17
Record at the Masters
Sabatini has 2 titles 2 Runner up and 3 SF
Martinez has 0 titles, 0 RU, and 0 Sf
Record against the best players
Sabatini 40% Martinez 21%

Sabatini leads 9-6 over Martinez

Are you suggesting that Clijsters will end up with just one Grand Slam singles title as Sabatini did?

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
