She should have not retired now. She could do play half season now and retire on Roland Garros.

Yeah you should ring tennis officals around the world and get her to give back her wta tennis titles, no.1 ranking, olympic medal, fed cup title, grand slams and anything else that would make her a so called "great" tennis player - heck why not ask her to give back her money too and take her dog Sophie that'll learn her real good!

I have a feeling that she looked at FED CUP and said, I could still beat these girls. :lol:

I'll be happy to see Amelie one more time but if it doesn't happen, oh well.

Feb 7th, 2010, 12:08 AM
I don't think this is a bomshell at all.


Henin abruptly retiring was a bombshell.
Henin abruptly un-retiring was a bombshell.

To the mind of many people, Amelie she was already in somewhat as semi-retirement.
She has not palyed in how many montths?
It is only fitting that she decided to play her last tournament in her country, to bid a formal farewell to her fans.

Why didn't she do it on the big stage at RG?
Maybe the pressure she has felt in that tournament throughtout the years is too much to relieve again.

Well, she's not on the entry list for a start, and I would presume the draw has taken place by now / will be taking place tomorrow.

I would love to see Amelie on court one more time, but I seriously doubt that it will happen. This is probably just a mistranslation of the fact that she'll be at the tourney for her official retirement ceremony next Wednesday and will present the trophy to the winner on finals day. :shrug:

OK. In the face of suchn discrepancy, I undertand your skepticism.
Either the website has it wrong, or the tournament organizers have not updated their website.

Nothing to sort out, she won't be playing. As AmeDevotee said, it's her official farewell ceremony, plus she's presenting the trophy to the winner.

Trust me, no-one would be happier to see her pick up a racquet again than we would!

The tournament started, she's not on the entry list : http://ww2.opengdfsuez.com/joueuses.php?op=simple&language=fr
The official website only mentions her to recall she won here before and retired. I didn't find anything about a ceremony. :scratch:
Anyway, if she planned to play in a tournament, the french media would speak of it. :rolleyes:

It took her a long time to finally decide to retire, and she's no Santoro running after ridiculous records.
I won't be surprised if she shows up watching the tournament, but she won't play.

Yasmine
Feb 7th, 2010, 10:36 AM
If that was true it would be all over the EDF site, and in the media around here (I live in Paris). So I doubt it. Even if that would have been nice to see her here one last time :awww: Actually last time I saw her play live was last year's semis against Jankovic :sad: .

However indeed there is a ceremony for her on the wednesday ;)

I can't believe she's retired. Ever since I've been watching tennis she's been on the tour. I really wanted to see this ceremony.

Who's that girl in front Amelie? She's holding her hand in some pics. Is that the girl who would have given her the flowers, or did she adopt her, for real. Is Amelie partnered?

n French, Elena Dementieva came to honor him with brilliance and class: "I feel sad. (...) As a person and as a player, you will remain in our memories. There is a generation Mauresmo.

It then Elena Dementieva, a finalist last year who came on center court. "Our paths have crossed, she also started and moved in almost perfect French the Russian player. Today, I feel sad. Amelia, one of the most talented players leaving. And I'm not sure anyone could replace her.

Pathetic that you have to bring this up in this thread. And it's not even the same case. If Serena or Venus were retiring they would receive many, many words of praise and admiration from almost everyone, so stfu with the double-standard crap.

Mauresmo was a great player who added variety and interest to the tour with her unique playing style. She will be sorely missed by many and I hope she enjoys her life beyond tennis. :)

I didn't see it either but with the translations and pics I don't feel like I missed a beat. Thanks to everyone for sharing in a great moment for an even greater person. Amélie looked quite emotional and I'm glad some of the biggest personalities were there - Fran mightn't be the biggest star in the field but you can tell that a party wouldn't be a party without her and Elena is just a wonderful person.

Wow, those pictures made me very emotional. Can't say I was a fan but it is sad to see such a champion like Mauresmo retire. I remember in 2004 she was one of the first matches I ever watched in tennis. I hope she lives a peaceful and quiet life and enjoys her life now.
