Venus's tragic downfall and Amelie's rise to heaven.

The only obstacle for Amelie-melo remains Lindsay, but I'm sure she'll make it in the final. She hates losing in a final.
As for Venus, it is quite sad, but it gives a little more thrill for the spectators...
BTW, I'm looking forward to an all-French semi-final Nathalie-Amelie...

Amelie Mauresmo, Marion Bartoli, Nathalie Dechy, Tatiana Golovin, Celine Beigbeder, Virginie Razzano, Emilie Loit, Stephanie Foretz, Camille Pin, Elodie LeBescond ... and the other beautiful French girls...

I'm just taking it match by match and I hope Amelie does too!

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

Red face

There is nothing tragic about Venus losing today; she lost her EIGHT match of the year and only the fourth to someone other than Serena. Carpet is her worst surface and since she doesn't play that much in the Fall (something she might want to change next year), it wasn't a surprise that she lost.

As far as Amelie rising, she has been as high as number five, only to fall out of the top ten. It is only her great play since Wilmbeldon that she is where she is now.

Also note: Venu has not been out of the top five since 1999.

lol, I think your reaction to Gus is almost as over-the-top as Gus' reaction to Venus' loss.

Sof: now you're just being silly
