The Amelia Island draw is out and Amanda didn't get the kindest of draws; with former French Open champion Iva Majoli in Round 1, Amanda's nemesis Conchita Martinez, who was one of the premier clay courters of the 1990's in Round 2. The draw doens't get better from there with a potential showdown with the perenial threat sandrine testud in Round 3 and top tenners mauresmo, williams, dokic and henin lurking in the quarters and beyond.
