Amelie was a worthy no.1....

...And she showed why again today. What an absolutely fabulous performance against Kim!


Looks like she's laid chokomomo to rest once and for all. She showed amazing guts and determination in the final set. All the doubters can shut the hell up now. She beat both Kim and Justine, after her long layoff. Her fitness and athleticism is just amazing! And what tennis!

Re: Amelie was a worthy no.1....

She IS a worthy #1.
The ranking system is flawed.
Top players want to win majors.
Amelie won as many majors as the rest of the tour combined this year.

She should be POY and the year end #1, but the ranking system doesn't reward winning a major the way it should.

Winning a slam final is double the money, and more than double the prestige, of losing a final.
But not that much more in points.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Hum, you're quite late. I don't remember anyone calling her Chokomomo lately.
And saying Justine probably deserve the first rank little more than Mauresmo doesn't mean she's not a worthy number 1.

Re: Amelie was a worthy no.1....

Amelie has finally lived up to her potential this year and has been playing great tennis most of the time, however, Justine also has a claim to be #1 especially if she can win tomorrow. I do agree the ranking system sucks, but I do not think it is good for the tour to put too much emphasis on the Slams. To do so would lessen the interest in other tournaments.

Re: Amelie was a worthy no.1....

How the hell can she be a worthy number one?
when heading for her chair she breaks into a run
this streak of chair running,it had to be stopped
it wasn't, so her ranking has inevitably dropped

Re: Amelie was a worthy no.1....

In my opinion she should be the year end number one, she's been outstanding, and that match today without doubt the match of the year, both players were outstanding, both at their best. Im so proud of Amelie's year whatever happen's tomorrow in my eyes she is the best player in the world.


Miss you JENNY and GUGA
GO Amelie,Sveta,Patty,Ana
Go A-rod,Marat, Rafa,Robby,Andy,Taylor, Juan Carlos,Nole

Re: Amelie was a worthy no.1....

I find it funny that now that she isn't number one anymore, people say she is worthy.

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?
