No excuses for Momo

KrippedykRap Krap!!!!

Amelie was NOT nervous and nothing about her even remotely suggested it. That girl got owned by Serena with superiour tennis and mentality.

Serena was hellbent into showing Momo that she has no claim over that no.1 position.

The determination and the look on Serena's face clearly shows who the best competitor in the world is at the moment and what sports is all about.

I just wanted to get that out of the way.

There was no doubt Serena would have beaten Amelie today unless Amelie played 100% all the time. But Amelie played so bad, it was horrible to watch.

she was nervous or at least rattled by the pressure.

And nobody is making excuses anyway. "Nerves" are part of the game. Serena played great, Mauresmo played awful and partly because of her nerves wilting to the pressure. Serena won. End of Story.

Sorry, I disagree. Serena did play well and did "own her", however Momo was clearly scared out of her wits. If you've watched a single other Momo match in the last few months you'd notice that she doesn't normally double fault nearly that much or hit balls into the net on all those shots. The girl was definitely tight. I'm not saying she would have won at her best, but it should have been a lot closer.

However, I agree with your "no excuses" comment, in that part of being a champion is riding out those scary occasions and Momo couldn't. She's gone a step better than previous years so that's something.

Wow, thats really dumb. I'm sorry but signs were all over the place that muaresmo was nervous as a wreck. She couldn't serve, she didn't move well, she was missing shots 2-3 feet wide, she was hitting the ball on the frame, her face before the match was one of nerve and unsettleness, she was nervous as heck and to say that Amelie was NOT nervous and nothing about her even remotely suggested it makes me doubt that you even watched the match. Even if you only looked at the statistics you would know that mauresmo had like a -30 error to winner ratio while serena didn't even have a positive ratio.

Yes, i agree she should not make excuses, and yet i agree that Serena killed her because of serena's game, but momo was a wreck. However, i still believe that serena would have won no matter what today but mauresmo didn't put up much of a fight and is much more capable than what she showed us.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Amelie started off the match shanking two balls in the first game, committing four straight UEs, and getting but one ball into the court (and even that clipped the net) during the first game. Then she double faulted twice in the next game handing Serena the early break. from there, it was more of the same. She collapsed under the pressure, and to say otherwise shows an extreme lack of knowledge about the game in general and Mauresmo's game in particular.

Yes, Serena was amazing. But ANYBODY would look good if they were fed those weakass, nerve-riddled second serves Amelie was throwing up.

To saying that Amelie was not nervous is to be as intellectually dishonest as though who suggest that because Venus lost while suffering from a injury which prevented her from adequately preparing means she is not the at this time the 2nd best tennis player in the world.

*sigh* Amelie WAS OBVIOUSLY not on top of her game meaning not in 100% condition.. can't you see how she serve.. sprout some unnecessary errors yes. Serena played her best form give her the credit for that.. but when she's in a best form, no one could challenge her.. *cough* but i do think if Amelie was in her best form.. I could have a watch a great match with of course Momo winning

The upcoming grass and hardcourt season will show who is the real deal. Let the Belgians enjoy their time for now because the Venus fury will be back.

Yep.....good to see Vee on the go.

unless Vee improves her serve drastically, she would get the same results at the Wimbledom.

Amelie was simply humbled by Serena....~~~~end of discussion~~~~~

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Definitely no excuses for Momo. But she looked as nervous as hell and her game went down the toilet, save a few points of brilliant play.
