Definitely a gritty win but it's a good start, winning these matches ugly is good.

Far from her best, but she fought and was more aggressive than the usual lately. Her backhand is still a joy to watch, however the sliced version goes to the net in every important point!

Morigami is next and it should be passable. Then I would LOVE to watch her play against Safarova in the 3rd round. A win over Safarova could be the end of her slump, as the bad period actually started in their match at AO'07.

Bravo Momo!

I predicted a win in 3, so much better than expected!!

(Scary near choke in the first set though. )

However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Amélie almost gave away a 5:1 lead in first set! So glad she still managed to win this set.

A win is a win and she now has a good chance to reach quarterfinals against Morigami.


Allez Amélie!!!

Re: Dubai R1: Mauresmo def. Medina Garrigues 7-6(7) 6-2

Ok, Mauresmo is playing badly right now, but hell she defeated the number 31 of the world by 7:6 6:2! It's not that bad!

Medina defeated Petrova and Kirilenko last week! Destroyed Pennetta and Schiavone in the Fed Cup in Italy on indoors! Took a set against Davenport (the only one to do it in Auckland)!

Medina almost defeated Mauresmo in New Haven in 2005, so this win is a good sign. No, she won't win this tournament and I don't think she can get back to the Top 10 in the next months, but this has a to be a step by step task and today a good step was made into her comeback to her best level!

Wow, nice win Momo! 1st set was pretty ugly, but after saving SPs and winning this thrilling tiebreak, I guess, she remembered that she's a fighter Nice 2nd set! Congrats! so glad she didn't lose.
