Mauresmo earns 500th career win!

Mauresmo beats Radwanska to advance at Bausch & Lomb Championships

AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. (AP)—Amelie Mauresmo had to work hard to earn her 500th career win in the third round of the Bausch & Lomb Championships on Thursday.

Mauresmo, the 2001 Bausch & Lomb winner, came back to beat seventh-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (6) in a match that took more than 2 1/2 hours.

Against Radwanska, Mauresmo was up 5-2 in the third before dropping two match points and then three straight games to force a tiebreaker.

“Even though I had some opportunities to finish it off before the third-set tiebreak, I couldn’t make it,” Mauresmo said. “I was glad that I was coming in and trying to go for it in that tiebreak. That’s what made the difference, I thought, in the end.”

She engineered a mini-comeback from 5-3 down in the tiebreak and closed it out with a crosscourt backhand winner that clipped the line.

“I tried to really come in and be aggressive and not let her dictate the game in the key moments, which I probably should have done a bit earlier in the match,” Mauresmo said. “I finished with a positive note, so I’m glad.”

Mauresmo now has won three matches in a row for the first time since Wimbledon last year.

The former world No. 1 endured a pair of two-month layoffs in 2007 with an emergency appendectomy and an adductor strain. She has struggled since and fallen to No. 24 in the rankings.

Two fellow Frenchwomen will join the 11th-seeded Mauresmo in the quarterfinals.

Way to go Amelie, reached a milestone! Now get the confidence back and win some titles now!

Good for Momo! Congrats. And sounds like it came with some effort, and having to dig out of a "failure to close" situation. That should give her some confidence.
