match against Venus, that Mauresmo did not have in the match against Jennifer? Both Venus & Jennifer are Americans playing in their home country. Both are ranked higher than Mauresmo. Both already have a collection of grand slam titles. Clearly Mauresmo's increased support was not underdog related, otherwise it would have been evident in the Capriati match. HONESTLY, what do you think fuelled the increased crowd support for Mauresmo and the boos at the end of Venus's match in New York?
