Is it me or.....

is nobody talking about Amelie? I mean, I know she's not the favorite by any means but it seems like people are placing her behind pretty much anyone else except Paula Suarez to win the title. I haven't watched any of her matches thus far(has espn showed any of them?) but from her match statistics, it seems like she's playing pretty well. She has Suarez next, whom I think she'll beat. I don't know, it just seems like she's being overlooked here, even moreso than Lindsay Davenport.

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.

Yeah, she is being overlooked, but the main reason for that over here in the UK is that the media only seem interested in the Henman and Williams matches. Other matches don't get much of a look in, especially in the BBC highlights program. It would be great if Amelie did win it, but she struggled against Suarez and I don't think she'll beat Serena, though I hope she does!! ALLEZ AMELIE!!

Henman's out, I knew I shoulda put a bet on him not reaching the semis!!
