Another Amelie Article

Let me start off by saying I don't know where this comes from, I copied it from another board. I am going to get the link later and post it here.

Williams Matches Fixed, Claims Mauresmo


Beaten Wimbledon semi-finalist Amelie Mauresmo stirred up controversy in her post-match news conference by re-opening the debate over match-fixing involving the Williams sisters.
Frenchwoman Mauresmo was thrashed 6-2 6-1 by Serena Williams in the second semi after Venus had cruised past Justine Henin in the first.

Afterwards, she was asked which sister would prevail in Saturday's final.

"You have to ask them for that," she replied tersely. To me, it's a little bit sad for women's tennis

She then told French television that she believed that matches between the sisters were fixed.

"I think they arrange it - I don't have any proof of this or inside information, but take for example the match at Roland Garros - it could have been arranged," she said.

"As Serena won in Paris, maybe they'll change it and it'll be Venus' turn now."


She also stated that she did not think the domination of the Williams, who are numbers one and two in the world, was good for the women's game.

"I think people are going to get bored of it," she said of the prospect of a third all-Williams final in the last four Grand Slams.

"I'm not counting how many people since yesterday told me: 'We don't want an all-Williams final.'

"To me, it's a little bit sad for women's tennis but maybe it's not the point of view of everybody."

Matches between the Williams sisters have been regularly dogged by controversy and the pair have been criticised for their inability to produce their best tennis against each other.

The Williams themselves claim they find it difficult to play competitively against a sibling, but rumours have also surfaced that their father Richard decides who will win matches between his daughters.


All I can say is if this is the true quote of what she has said on the record, she has some serious issues that she needs to work on because it just sounds like Sour grapes to me.

Oddly enough, I can't find Amelie's interview anywhere. If she really said this, I'm thinking the WTA is going to step into the situation.

I'm yet to see the WTA stand up for Venus and Serena, at least publicly. There is no proof, so why are the other players allowed to spread these vicious and disparaging rumors without any evidence whatsoever?

Well I really hope she is being misquoted because it would be sad to see someone who has had to face random unsubstantiated claims that she uses/used steroids throw the same kind of unsubstantiated mud at someone else!

When you click on the link there is a choice to view english version. Its the address that I already gave you. Just click on the british flag. Unfortunately , the site has not been updated since the 2nd or 3rd round of Wimbledon.

What about Jelena's hissing Dokic fan? She sounds like a snake, is she doing it on purpose. I like Amelie and am sorry to see that she showed sour grapes after her loss. She doesn't usually do that and is usually very nice in her interviews.

Amelie should not comment on controversial things...she is the main target for steroid abuse in women's tennis. What a-hole comments by Amelie. Well, after getting humiliated by Serena...the comments can be taken lightly.



@ Amelie! She reaches the SF of Wimbledon...and now she thinks she is the f-ing queen of the tennis world! LOL!

"They'll never win a grandslam title" LOL!
"They'll never be ranked #1" LOL!
"They'll never win a title on clay" LOL!
"All they do is hit hard" LOL!
"Venus will never win another Tier I title" LOL!
"Venus will never beat another top-5 player" LOL!
"Venus will never win another grand slam title" LOL!

I'm surprised she fell into the trap after being a subject of controversy herself.
