DEFEND!

Amélie sings, "'Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden twinkle in my eye

I never had a chance to shine
Never a happy song to sing
But suddenly half the world is mine
What an amazing thing

'Cause I've got a grand slam trophy, I've got a golden sun up in the Aussie sky

My naysayers never thought they'd see the day
When I would face the world and say
Kiss my ass, I won a slam
I never thought that I would be
Slap in the lap of luxury

'Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden chance to make my way
And with a golden racquet, it's an Antwérp dayyyyyyyyy"

Ok, a little od'd on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory :lol:

*goes to seek out professional help*

oh yeah

GO GO MAURESMO!

:lol: @the song

Amélie's racket's been sparkling since the Masters and it will keep on sparkling in Antwerp !!!

She doesn't need diamonds nor gold to make it shine, but she'll grab them anyway.

I'm going to Antwerp like last year, I hope she'll give me another amazing final :hearts:

From the Proximus Diamond Games website:


Mauresmo: 'Better equiped and more experience'
14-02-2006
Amelie Mauresmo is doing fine: the French player won the Masters, took her first Grand Slam title in Australia and was the best again last weekend in 'her' Paris. The defending champion hopes to be able to keep her 'winning streak'.

"I feel really good and I hope I can continue this postive sensation", Mauresmo said. "When I won the Masters in LA, it turned around things in my head, a burden fell off my shoulders and ever since I've been much more relaxed on the court."

"On top of that I discovered aspects of my game I can use on each type of court. I can read the game much better as well, value the right time for the right shot. In short, I'm much better equiped. All my experience in the WTA tour has made me wiser as well."

The French doesn't seem to be included in the wave of injuries in the women's circuit. "I'll do anything to stay fit. I still have to recover from the Paris tournament, but I only start playing on Thursday, so I can take it easy."

Mauresmo: ''The victory against Venus last year was great' '
Mauresmo has a lot of good memories of her victory last year. "When I won the final here against Venus Williams my confidence got a serious boost. I could use it very much as I was not feeling well. The timing of that victory was perfect."

Does she think of the diamond racket already? "Not at all. Only if I succeed in winning the Proximus Diamond Games again. But I'm not there yet", the friendly French player concluded.

:bounce: Allez Amélie!!:bounce:

Yes she did some couples of smashs in this match against a good benesova.It was not easy.Amélie made some errors but she was very strong in saving break points.She had some up and downs but that was ok.She saved 13 or 14 break points if I remember well.

Great match from Amélie, she's looking very relaxed! :D (Great play saving all those break points - you could see the extra confidence that she has at the moment :D .) A little blip towards the end of the second set, but the end result didn't look at all in doubt! ;) Good practice for the match against Patty tomorrow too, (although I read that Patty isn't well... :confused: )

from Eurosport:

AFP

Victorieuse de la Russe Nadia Petrova (N.4), samedi, Amélie Mauresmo (N.2) défendra son titre à Anvers. La Française, championne de Melbourne et de Paris, jouera dimanche contre la Belge Kim Clijsters (N.1) ou la Russe Elena Dementieva (N.5).


WTA ANVERS - 1/2 FINALES

A.Mauresmo (Fra, 2) bat N.Petrova (Rus, 4) 6-4, 7-5

Amélie Mauresmo s'est rapprochée d'un 22e titre WTA en se qualifiant samedi pour la finale du tournoi d'Anvers. Tenante du titre et tête de série N.2, Mauresmo a battu en demi-finales la Russe Nadia Petrova (N.4) 6-4, 7-5, et sera opposée dimanche au stade ultime à la gagnante de la partie programmée samedi soir entre la Belge Kim Clijsters (N.1) et la Russe Elena Dementieva (N.5).

http://i.eurosport.fr/2006/02/17/253507-842486-151-113.jpg"Aujourd'hui, je suis beaucoup plus satisfaite de mon niveau de jeu que les jours précédents. Cela s'est joué à pas grand chose dans le deuxième set. Je suis très contente", commentait à raison la résidente genevoise. Dès l'entame de match, la numéro deux mondiale se comportait en patronne sur le court face à une adversaire qui commettait trop de fautes directes, 20 sur l'ensemble du premier set contre 8 seulement pour Mauresmo.

En 35 minutes, le Française menait 6-4 avant de connaître un passage à vide qui permettait à Petrova de s'envoler jusqu'à 2-5 dans la deuxième manche. Mauresmo devait sauver trois balles de set puis alignait cinq jeux d'affilée pour s'imposer 7-5 après une heure et demie de jeu.

Ce succès est le 14e consécutif pour la protégée de l'entraîneur Loïc Courteau après sa série ininterrompue de victoires lors des tournois de Melbourne (Open d'Australie) et de Paris.

Il a valu à Mauresmo un joli cadeau de la part de l'organisateur: une bouteille d'un grand vin de Bordeaux de 1994 que la joueuse "a promis de déboucher à la prochaine grande occasion" . Dimanche, peut-être, si elle devait s'imposer dans la cité du diamant… the organizer of the tournament offered her a bottle of Bordeaux 1994, and Amélie promised to open it on her next great occasion, maybe on Sunday... :drool:
