I totally agree and I also think that Momo and Mary should practise more often together...their styles and friendships can help them improve their game....

Amelie - Marcos

I've read many comments after the match and it seems that Mary played really well. I hope she will be even better in Antwerp! Go Mary! Gooo!
Ps: hope for a better draw! LOL

i think a scoreline of 4:6 3:6 against the world's #3 player and one of your closest friends is a good result.

it just shows that mary still has what it takes to get back to where she was in 2000. she just needs to keep at it and she needs to believe that she can beat these new and upcoming players and theres no doubt that mary will be back to the top of her game . . . but thats just my opinion anyways

Alana

p.s - is there anyone out there who managed to tape the match and would be willing to send me a copy, if i paid for it ?? i'd really love to see this match.

A Mary Pierce fan through and through,
But admires Amélie Mauresmo greatly.

------------------------------

We love you Mary !

I totally agree with you as well on your point.

Play more doubles together as well. I think that Mary should play doubles when ever she can now. It will help improve her match fitness.

They already practise quite a bit from time to time. Amélie wants to concentrate on her singles so there's not going to be doubles playing other than in the Fed Cup. Playing doubles would definitely help Mary to improve her match fitness but considering how injury prone Amélie has been in the past too much match play might have a negative effect on her.
Anyway I'm glad to see Mary feeling well and playing so great tennis again.
As for her sponsor, she is not sponsored by Nike at the moment. In fact during the preparation camp in French alps she was wearing Adidas shoes.

hope she could have a better draw next week~
it seems that mary played well until the end of every set. i guess it's because of her lack of matches. she really needs to play more~

Hi,

About Nike.

In the training for the AU Open she was wearing Nike clothing, I mena with the logo. But on her match outfit no Nike Logo.

I had E-mail nike nad asked them if they still sponsor Mary and they said yes.

So I just do not know about Nike and Mary at the moment.

I think she is still wearing Nike cloth but during her matches she is putting the WTA sign on top of the Nike sign...because they are not her sponsors anymore.

I watched the match and Mary did play very well, she was just tired at the end of first set and missed some important points, but I can tell you it was not that easy for Amélie.

I really appreciated the reaction of the french crowd, during all the match there were no noise, silence...... respect !!! it was not two players but two friends playing against each other.

I have to say that I also appreciate Amélie's reaction during the interview, the commentator asked a question to Mary, the question was a bit "strange" (I would said ambiguous) about Mary's career and Amelie's career, Mary looked at him and said "what" Amélie stood up and looked at the guy and you could read in her look "you better watch out your mouth, don't attack her" it was kind of cool to see the deep respect that Amelie has for Mary.


PS. for sponsor, Mary was wearing the nike's logo but turned up side down, you only could see it when the camera was very very close, are you sure she's still with Nike (maybe her new contract will start later)

Mary still wears their clothing but is not currently sponsored by them. This info is from Mary, she should know.
