I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

I took her a really loooong time to get to the No 1 a couple of sessons ago.( she was, what 26??)I am afraid she will have a hard time collecting herself, and overcoming this horrible start of the sesson. Do you people think she will be back? I have my doubts.

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

She has the game and the talent to go back where she belongs, top 3, but her main problem is mental... I´m not a bit concerned, i´m HUGE concerned....

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

I don't think Mauresmo is top 3 material but she can certainly get back to a higher level.

She is a great athlete with a stylish game but despite her variety and ability, I don't see her beating the very elite players if they are at their best.

Venus, Serena, Justine, Ivanovic, Kuznetsova and others IMO can def take her out and overpower her if they play well.
It will be interesting to see how she does the rest of the year she really is talented and a nice person.

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

I want to see her move back up, but I think its getting more and more unlikely. It might just be she is taking a bit longer to find her game (perhaps because of her age) but one great tourny could do her the world of good and get her confidence back up again.

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

I think she can get back to top 10 for sure. She needs to maybe find her love for the game again-seems like she's put too much pressure on herself. But in the end, very few players ever reach that #1 spot, so that is an amazing achievment that she should be proud of.

Please, don't be so hard on yourself, Amelie, you are a great talent and seem like a very nice women, too! Give yourself a break!

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

Amelie was only a top 5 player who would get to a semi final of a slam at best. 2006 she got lucky with all the top players injured or off form and achieved world number 1 and 2 slams, so I guess her motivation and ambition just can't get her back up to the top 5 now. I wish her luck

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

She took a break after Wimbledon, and she's just not been the same since she's returned, she played a brilliant match against Henin at Eastbourne, but that's the last time she played like normal Momo, I don't know why her confidence is so low, you'd think after winning the Slams she'd get better in that department not worse

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

The Australian Open is at the start of the year. Players should feel refreshed ,extra motivated to win the first slam of the year, and be healthy. It's not Mauresmo's fault that three of her opponents weren't healthy. What was she supposed to do? Tell the tournament organisers to get her healthy opponents? As for Wimbledon, Amelie beat a fully healthy Justine in the finals. Justine came off winning Roland Garros and had all the confidence in the world whereas Amelie lost to Vaidisova in front of her home crowd. Amelie won both slams fair and square and truly deserved that number one spot because she was the best at that time.

I find it so pathetic that people can't see that. And I'm not even an Amelie Mauresmo fan.

As for her current form right now, she'll do her best when the times right. She's getting match practice and is trying to find her form. Give her time.

DON'T WAVE YOUR HAND AT ME GURLLL!

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

She's currently playing like shit! That's the problem for her...

Her game right now is running from side to side, hitting moonballs, and making DFs!

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

ever since I saw her play at the GC & at the AO she's been playing too much defensive style tennis which I think may be her downfall. but then again she's not to confident at the moment to play with agression & it's just a matter of winning matches again & hopefully these losses will teach her something.

I really want amelie to comeback at her best.

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

I don't think she ever got lucky, I think she was unlucky most of her career, actually. That WB final she played was brilliant, no luck and no chokes.

My thoughts for what they're worth is that she's done everything in tennis she ever wanted, perhaps exceeded them, and she's not into it anymore and she's someone who can't play like a robot, she has to have something driving her, and it's no longer there.

Re: I must say, I am a bit concerned with Amelie Mauresmo

Mauresmo wasn't "lucky" to win her Slams. She is a superb player when she plays her best, I'd rank her in the top 20 greatest players of the Open Era. Unfortunately she hasn't been able to find her game lately.

I'm not sure such a player ever existed though.

Lots of players go through a period where they lack motivation. Some get the hunger back, some don't. She just needs to figure it out. My opinion is that a few more ass-kickings will piss her off and fire her up.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
