....do you think she'll gain the confidence she needs to win a slam???:shrug:
The Olympics would be her biggest ever tournament win and if she beats Justine/Myskina in the final I think it would do alot for her confidence, plus her her win in Toronto and her good performance at Wimby should help.
I just think it's been far too long since she's made it to a slam final. She definitely has the game to win a GS and maybe she'll have the belief after the Olympics.

I agree it would give her alot of confidence and it would not just be Mauresmo talented player who is yet to win a slam but Mauresmo Olympic Champion.

aaaaahhh Justine is down 1-2 in the third set!!!! ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH..oops wrong thread.
Damn I want my Momo-Justine final with Momo winning over the number 1 in the world. It would be much more sweeter.

And you forgot to add, Mauresmo Next GS Champion.
well, seriously...The way she's playing these days has gotta be a wake up call to her opponents. She's vastly improved in most departments except her serves. whatever it is, she's shown that she's mentally stronger now with each strides that she takes. And she's proven it recently at Wimby *which some beg to differ that she'd choked*, her win in the RC and now an astounding performance by her at the Oly...Momo would go very far from here. She'll be one of the players to watch out for at the USO. At least, she's slowly shaking off her choker tag!

I really feel that if she wins Gold here, she will win US Open this year- i am actually rooting for her to do so- its about time she learns how to win the BIG ones already. I know Alicia is playing well and has game but if momo let this slip by...well....i don't want to say anythign nasty, so go momo;)
Oh yeah I forgot!! Let's not overestimate Alicia...didn't she beat Momo 2 weeks ago?!?
Aug 20th, 2004, 06:41 PM
Yeah..Molik defeated Momo a couple weeks ago.

Ok guys, she needs to win with Alicia first...She's not in the final yet..I have no doubt she gets there afterall, but let's not bewitch with the evil eye :lol: :lol:

Yes, SHUSH now, please. Don't jinx her :p ;)
Aug 20th, 2004, 07:09 PM
We won't know, since she won't win the Gold !
Aug 20th, 2004, 07:16 PM
I hope she's nervous and Justine spanks that as$. ;)
Just kidding, play a good match ladies!

the funnie thing is she is "playing" for her country. somthing she does throughout the whole year anywayz. but with the olympics its even more special b/c its once every 4 years, and your country picks who they want to represent them.
you'd think she would have as much problem with the olympics as she does with the French Open. But then again, she isn't at home.
If she does when, I think it will give her all types of Confidence. I know it won't take away anything from her for winning.
