LASTING TIES: Amelie Mauresmo retired last year but at least one player has not forgotten her.
Svetlana Kuznetsova sent an SMS message to Mauresmo on Sunday morning to see if she would watch her opening match at the French Open, and the Frenchwoman duly showed up at Roland Garros to see her beat Sorana Cirstea of Romania 6-3, 6-1.
“She supported me before the match,” Kuznetsova said. “So we had a chat in the dressing room. I appreciate her coming a lot. She’s a very good friend of mine and I’m happy to see her again.”
Their friendship started in 2005 when Kuznetsova played doubles with Mauresmo at Wimbledon.
“We had a lot of fun but we also played pretty well together and made it through to the final,” Mauresmo said. “We have been close ever since.”
Mauresmo, who won Wimbledon and the Australian Open in 2006, attended the inauguration on Sunday of the main alley named after her at Roland Garros for the duration of the tournament.
A true champion. A champion of the courts. A champion of our hearts. A champion of the people. A champion of overcoming prejudice. A true inspiration and role model for woman around the world, gay and straight alike!
Je croire toujours en vous Amélie
