Firstly, congrats. to Amélie and best of luck to her against Serena!!
I've just got back from Paris this morning, and having seen all of Magüi's matches, except for todays, live, IMO she's definately lost weight since last year. However, her outfit doesn't ...... errm ...... exactly help to show that!!
That "tummy bulge" you are talking about is most probably due to the effects of her shirt, which has a tendancy to, kind of unflatteringly, bunch up at the bottom creating the effect of a bulge!!
It's a shame Magüi couldn't have put up more of a fight against Amélie. I'm guessing she was very nervous today. In the Harkelroad match she seemed quite tight in the first set, and played really badly, but then got it together in the last two and played the best tennis I've ever seen her play, (and I saw every match of her QF's run at Wimbledon 2000 live too!
) Obviously, she couldn't afford to leave it that late against a player like Mauresmo though. However, all-in-all it's been a really good tournament for Magüi, hopefully she can build on that in Eastbourne and Wimbledon.
It's really nice to see her looking happier and getting her game back together after her terrible season last year.
