Justine says Amelie can be #1

"Amelie can be No. 1 for sure. When she plays aggressive like she did today, she can beat everyone.''

Nice comments from Justine

AMELIE!!!!!

Talking

And Justine is right

CONGRATULATIONS AMÉLIE

P.S: Why all this talk about haters ? I see none here and think it is never a good strategy to invoke them.

Life is so gloriously improbable

Amelie is no doubt one of the most talented players. She just lacks the mentality of a No. 1 player right now. I hope she discovers that soon enough.

Everyone except Kim, who beat her the other day when Amelie was on fire

Anyway, I am happy to see Amelie playing well She seems like a nice girl. I just hope she can stay injury-free next year. If she can, then I think she can challenge for majors and even #1. She beat Serena this year, pseudo-beat Venus (was playing her close anyway), and now beat Justine. Good on her...

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

I think some Justine-haters don't give Justine credit when she makes sportsmanlike comments like this.

I think some Justine fans have tried to take credit away from Momo by saying that Justine played crappy tonight. Justine agrees: Mauresmo just outplayed her.

I don't think Justine likes hitting those shoulder-high balls that Mauresmo's topspin creates. She can't hit the winners from the baseline as easily as with Kim's flatter shots.

It's definitely Mauresmo that is Next in Line to be #1. In 2004, that is certainly attainable if she keeps playing like she does now BUT just needs to crease more of these 3rd sets against top players just like today.

i always get the impression that amelie is like a modern day sabatini, in almost every way

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

congrats amelie, this is an incredible win against the new number one!

but amelie will never be number one herself. not because she's not good enough, but because her body doesn't seem to be able to hold throughout a whole season.

See. Justine can be gracious and it's just true.
Amelie can be number 1 and win a grand slam.
She should've really have won one by now and is
one of the most underated contenders in
every major for the past 3 years!!!

Amelie is good, too bad she is injured so much....and someone was right. Justine doesn´t like those looping balls at-all. Amelie´s record at the recent GS´s haven´t been shabby. Only losing to a Williams or Kim. Last year after the French only lost to Serena and Venus and this year Serena and Kim...at least qrtrs at all slams she has played since French Open ´02. Right now she is making the next step. Beating Serena and Venus, Justine...now only Kim´s left.

Always bet on black!

Amélie has the game to beat everyone... unfortunately, that's not the same as having the mental strength to reach No 1.

What I find very impressive is that she missed TWO Slams this year... and will still end it ranked 4.
