Angry Funny how even after this year people still dont take Mauresmo seriously...

I was reading the thread about JHH's shot at the Grand Slam next year, and was shocked to read so many posts saying that Amelie will most probably not win another Slam...
I mean the girl won 2 out of 4 last year, and even after a bad fall season and despite injury, she made it to the finals of the YEC.
So I know I might not be totally unbiased here, but I think her results at the BIG events speak for themselves.... so I wouldnt exactly count her off.

Amelie

Dodin - Andrianjafitrimo - Kuznetsova - Rezai - Razzano - Mladenovic - Cornet - Garcia - Zheng - Hesse - Ferro

I'm surprised by it too. Amelie wom Wimbledon fair and square.
She was in the toughest section of the draw.
And after she won the AO, she won 2 more tournaments.

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

Because outside of the slams, she didn't really do much. She only won two titles outside of the slams.

Re: Funny how even after this year people still dont take Mauresmo seriously...

maybe it's because of her lack of consistency at the smaller tournaments. but from history, we know u can never count out a champion. everyone though capriati was done after 01, but she shocked everyone by winning the AO the following year.

Yeah, funny. But that's ok, she will prove them wrong.

I'm cheering for Amélie and Shahar.

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

In that Justine thread there are posts not taking other slam winners seriously as well .

As long as Amelie takes her chances seriously, that's what matters.

Sharapova has never made any clay tournament final. Justine has only won a major on clay(2x), going back to January 2004. 3 years ago.
Amelie is the only player holding 2 majors.

So many posts? Like, two people said it, including me.

I'm sorry but Mauresmo's slam victories were totally unconvincing for me. To win another one she's going to have to get lucky. Without that luck she's going to struggle. [/imo]


Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Re: Funny how even after this year people still dont take Mauresmo seriously...

How was her wimbledon win unconvincing? I thought once Sharapova had won that 2dn set it was curtains for amelie but she came back. And she came back from a set down in the final playing some brilliant grass court tennis.

Have to say this years wimbleodn final was the most enjoyable in a while for, seeing two playing using classic grass court skills. And i'm not a fan of JHH but that final

GOOD LUCK IN 2014 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Naomi Broady, Tara Moore, Heather Watson , Laura Robson

Johanna Konta, Eleanor Dean

Re: Funny how even after this year people still dont take Mauresmo seriously...

mauresmo cannot be counted out next year except maybe at the french

no-one will ever know what would have happened if kim or justine hadn't retired from their matches at the aus open, but tennis is also the case of the last one standing aswell as the last one winning

and mauresmo played great grass court tennis to win wimbledon this year defeating 3 in-form players: myskina, sharapova and henin.

she is a worthy champion!

Re: Funny how even after this year people still dont take Mauresmo seriously...

She will not be a GS winner in future... I can guarntee that...
Sorry guys, but the fact is that in the moment when all girls are healthy, Amelie is weaker than Justine, Kim, Maria, even Nadia...

justine, kim and maria were all match fit in the semis at wimbledon and it was amelie who came out the winner

nadia comparison is ridicilous, she has not reached a slam final.
