Martina N speaks on Americans being behind Amelie

Did anyone hear her comments

This is not a direct quote but it went something like this

She said that it was a shame and that the Americans need to remember that these are two American young women out there playing.

She doesn't feel it has to do with racism but cheering for the underdog and that Americans sometimes take it to far. You wouldn't find this happening in France.

If my comments are off pls correct. Or later maybe we will have a transcript.
