Tennis: Mauresmo dépasse Noah dans l'histoire de l'ère Open
lun 09 aou, 12:37 PM

Mauresmo Inscrit Son Dans Les Tablettes Du Tennis FranÇAis

PARIS (Reuters) - En se hissant à la deuxième place de la WTA, Amélie Mauresmo est devenue la Française la mieux classée de l'ère Open.

En effet, Yannick Noah n'avait jamais été mieux que troisième mondial, rang atteint en juillet 1986.

Le fait d'effacer des tablettes le vainqueur de Roland-Garros 1983 ne doit pas laisser insensible Mauresmo, qui avait été séduite par le tennis en regardant à la télévision celui qui s'est reconverti dans la chanson.

Mathématiquement, la Française peut s'emparer de la première place mondiale à l'issue des Jeux olympiques qui accordent 248 points au vainqueur.

Condition nécessaire mais pas forcément suffisante: il faudra que la Française fasse mieux que la Belge Justine Henin-Hardenne, dont le trône est plus vacillant que jamais.

PARIS (Reuters) - While rising in the second place of the WTA, Amélie Mauresmo became the Frenchwoman best classified Open era.

Indeed, Yannick Noah had never been better than third world, row reached in July 1986.

The fact of erasing shelves the winner of Roland-Garros 1983 should not leave insensitive Mauresmo, which had been allured by tennis by looking with television that which was reconverted into the song.

Mathematically, the Frenchwoman can seize the first world place at the end of the Olympic Games which grant 248 points to the winner.

Condition necessary but not inevitably sufficient: it will be necessary that the Frenchwoman does better than the Belgian Justine Henin - Hardenne, whose throne is more wavering that never.

Felicitacions Amelie!

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Just one way to go from here, and that's UP!

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

ez Amélie!
