It's easy. For the next two weeks, simply change your first name to "Freedom"!

I'm serious. We Americans would have booed French fries if we hadn't changed them to "Freedom Fries". In fact, if you've noticed, they're on sale at the tournament concession stands right now.

You too can have a happy ending.

So, for now on Amelie, it's "Freedom" Mauresmo!
Sebastian, it's "Freedom" Grosjean!

All French players please follow suit!

If Emilie Loit had just called herself "Freedom" Loit, we in the crowd would have given her a big, ole' Texas ovation.

I don't know...bet you what happens if Amelie was announced as "Freedom" Mauresmo...

Maybe it might be easier if they changed their names to "Boo" instead. :)
