Seems like the first time in months I haven't had to write Get Well Soon Amélie! :lol: :bounce:
It'll be so great to have her playing again. :tennis: :yippee: :tennis: :yippee:
It would be wonderful and fantabulous if she won, but I really want her to just stay healthy. No intercostal tears, no cartilage inflammation, no ankle sprains, no colds, no adductor strains, no stiff necks, no tripping in the locker room and smacking head on the wall, no rabies...
Play Your Best Amélie!

Amelie seeded 1?
Come on Amelie-melo !

Will she play? The question still stands...
Mar 18th, 2004, 08:25 PM
Dammit, I was hoping to find out more definite news from here..
Mar 18th, 2004, 09:36 PM
If we go by her L'Equipe interview (2 weeks ago :rolleyes: ) it sounded like she'd be ready to play here. Since we haven't heard anything since, let's assume that no news is good news :)
*Keeps rose-colored glasses on* :angel: ;)
Mar 18th, 2004, 11:50 PM
let's hope that she is fit and eager to play :)
for Sonja and all the amezons who will be in Miami:
Have a GREAT time girls :wavey:
Mar 19th, 2004, 07:27 AM
I feel so sorry to say that :sad:
she will not play in Miami but will go there next week to train for Amelia Island and Charleston
She lost her father last week :sad:
sorry Amezons :sad:

Oh no, that's terrible news.
Mar 19th, 2004, 12:03 PM
Thanks for the news, mom3. My deepest sympathies to Amélie and her family :sad:
Mar 19th, 2004, 01:42 PM
Tennis isn't important when something like this happens. I just hope she'll find comfort, strength, and peace with her family during this troubling time.

Oh poor Amélie - it's very sad.

Momosapiens, don't give up hope just yet - there's a chance she may play doubles here :eek:
A big MERCI to Loulou (and Socrate):worship: for posting this on the official site:
Today on the french board, Socrate has posted a little article from the french sport newspaper L'Equipe about Amélie :
Officiellement, Amélie Mauresmo a déclaré forfait pour cause de mal de dos. En réalité, boulversée par la disparition de son père, décédé d'un cancer il y a douze jours à l'âge de cinquante-six ans, la numéro 1 française n'est pas en l'état de défendre ses chances normalement et on la comprend. Elle n'a pas touché une raquette depuis près de deux semaines, son esprit est ailleurs , mieux vaut dans ce cas s'abstenir. Il n'empèche qu'on devrait la voir ces jours-çi à Miami , pour se remettre progressivement dans l'ambiance du circuit et de la compétition . On parle même de sa présence dans l'épreuve du double . Mais sa véritable rentrée est prévues dans deux semaines à Amélia Island, sur terre battue.- A.D.
"Officially, Amélie Mauresmo has withdrawn from Miami due to her back injury. But she was really shattered by the death of her father, deceased of a cancer twelve days ago at 56 years old.
The french No 1 is not in the state to normally defend her chances and we could understand it. Amélie has not touched a racket since nearly two weeks, her spirit is elsewhere. So it’s better not to play. So maybe we could see her in Miami these days to recover gradually in the environment from the circuit and competition. It’s possible that Amélie could play the double. But she will probably be back in two weeks at Amelia Island, on clay."

Thanks for the article Linnie but I don't see it happening. She'd be much better off practicing on the clay when she feels ready to return to the sport.
Mar 23rd, 2004, 02:32 PM
It might be good for her to kind of ease back into competition by playing doubles (again, assuming she's ready to play). There'd be no pressure, and, the few times I've seen her playing doubles, she's had a good time.
In any case, we'll see when the doubles draw comes out :)
