I used to be a big fan of Amelie, but the passion simmered. No explanation, but congrats to her. She is a real force of talent and it's nice to see her proving once again that she should never be counted out. She defeated my Kimmy but it's all good, it's all good

Congrats to Amelie she showed heart out there!!

I told Gumby that she would win, that all she had to do is keep plugging away. Congrats to you Momo.

DAMMIT what a comeback! I swear she's trying to kill me.

Congrats, Amelie!

now go home and get some rest, 'cause neither Venus nor Davey will let you get away with a start like that

That match was exciting and made be a ball of nerves, so I can only imagine how the real die hard fans felt like.

Amelie showed courage and great mental strength today, her Sports Psycologist is helping her out, congrats.

well lets hope Amelie can back this up unlike what she did at Wimbledon. I swear i hate it when someone beats a top player in one round and then poop out 62 61 in the next round. Venus will probably win tonight and then slaughter amelie...she would have killed jen too most likely so what difference does it make i guess? I'm just down cause jen lost. oh well...

Well Done Amelie



Just realised that everyone left in the draw is a favourite of mine (of course to varying degrees. Venus leading the pack by a MILE however..)

whatever happens from now on in - this will have to count as one of my best opens and i can relax and watch Women's Tennis without getting too hot under the collar..


wey hey

I was a little pissed when amelie said I go for number 3 because I thought what a mentality that was but obvious it worked well for her since she seems to be mentally tougher since that time!
Congrats for that

I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

Sorry - I meant neither Venus nor Seles (it's just taken me a few minutes to get back in and fix it)

irma, I'd rather see her aim for the top, too, but I'm willing to let her take it one step at a time

Congrats to Amelie and her fans...excuse me while I drown my sorrow in an adult beverage..

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

Momo is aiming for the top, I think at that time she was a bit ticked off. With her talent there is no way to go but up imho. She has the game to upset alot of power players.

Momo can only gain confidence from that match.
