View Full Version : Mauresmo Takes Wild Card into J&S Cup

Apr 17th, 2003, 08:33 AM

Amelie Mauresmo was signed in for J&S Cup. 7th rocqet of the world will play in Warsaw thanks to "golden wild card".
After official closing of the player's list - 6 weeks before the tournament French player's name as well as Moinka's Seles and Lindsay Davenport's names were frequently recalled by the journalists and polish tennis fans. Candidates for one of three wild cards (the one used to elevate the competition level) were considered. Amelie was "suspect", since she announced on her website, that she is thinking about playing in Warsaw. Finally there will be 8 top WTA 20 players in J&S main draw, 3 from top 10 among them - Venus Williams, Daniela Hantuchova and Mauresmo. This will be the third attempt for French player to play in Poland. In 2000 and 2001 she was singed-in for Idea Prokom Open tournament in Sopot, but due to an injuries she didn't show-up. In last months she used to have some health problems, so the organisers hope is to see France's first racquet in perfect shape in Warsaw.
It is worth recalling, that 24 years old Mauresmo is a finalist of Australian Open'99. She won 8 WTA tournaments in her carrer, two of them last year. Six months ago, after grand slam semi-finals (Wimbledon and US Open) Mauresmo was occupying the 4th spot of WTA ranking.
