Mauresmo hungry for more grand slam glory

Mauresmo hungry for more grand slam glory

Sun 07 Jan, 11:14 AM

SYDNEY (AFP) - Amelie Mauresmo says she is hungering for more grand slam glory after her breakthrough victory in last year's Australian Open.
Mauresmo has fond memories of Australia after her hollow victory over Justine Henin-Hardenne in the 2006 final at Melbourne Park.
Henin-Hardenne retired with an upset stomach while trailing 6-1 2-0, leaving Mauresmo to claim the grand slam trophy - seven years after her only previous appearance in a major final, also in Melbourne.
Mauresmo had success over Henin-Hardenne in the Wimbledon final six months later and is now eyeing an Australian Open encore.
"I want more because once you've tasted what it's like you want more," Mauresmo said Sunday ahead of her appearance at this week's Sydney International.
The French world No.3 will be top seed at the Sydney International following Henin-Hardenne's withdrawal last week after the reported break-up of her marriage and the absence of Maria Sharapova.
Henin-Hardenne will also not be playing in the Australian Open.
"I'm looking forward to being back in Melbourne, to feel what it's like to come back to a place where you had a grand slam the year before," Mauresmo said.
Mauresmo, who has also had two spells as the world No.1, said being a grand slam champion had brought contentment to her life.
"The relief is really there professionally but also in my normal life," said the Geneva-based 27-year-old.
"It was really starting to get to my mind and I was starting to ask myself some questions - am I going to finish my career without a grand slam? - and it was starting to be a little bit painful.
"I've now achieved all that I've said I would love to achieve in my career."
"It (the relief at winning a grand slam) translates into my game, being a bit a looser and also off the court, not being so stressed out."
Mauresmo has spent the brief off-season cross-country skiing in Europe to prepare for the rigours of an Australian summer campaign.

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

Re: Mauresmo hungry for more grand slam glory

I didn't read the first post or any for that matter, but when I read the thread title I was like "like she wouldn't be hungry for more slam success, which top ten player isn't?"

Amelie has real chances to win Sydney, but I won't be cheering for her in Melbourne.

Re: Mauresmo hungry for more grand slam glory

The French world No.3 will be top seed at the Sydney International following Henin-Hardenne's withdrawal last week after the reported break-up of her marriage and the absence of Maria Sharapova.

WTF Who the hell said Maria wouldn't be there? Am I missing something huge here or what? I dont recall Maria pulling out

She wasn't entered in Sydney in the first place.

I didn't know that Maria was supposed to play in Sydney

Allez Momo (those are some recycled quotes in that article though!)

Quote:
by Ivar Kalvins (the maker of Meldonium) -

Meldonium will “increase endurance properties and aerobic capabilities of athletes” and it “improves functional parameters of heart activity…increases physical work capabilities, increases the rate of organism rehabilitation after maximal and submaximal loads.” And that it is “not included in the doping list; it does not provoke any undesired side effects.”
