Amelie Mauresmo: aiming to become the first woman...

... with a one-handed backhand to reach the US Open semi-finals in 4 years!

What's up with that?

Good Luck, Amelie!

PS: She's also the only woman capable of stopping an all-Americans semi-finals

How many one-handed backhanders are there on tour?
That explains why it's taken 4 years.

We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

I have so much respect for people with 1 handed backhands as when I try, I hit maybe 1 in 3 in court, 1 in 10 or so is half decent shot. So much more difficult to do than a 2 hander IMHO, as my 2 hander is pretty ok.
