From tournament’s site:

“Amélie Mauresmo commits to player field!

Amélie Mauresmo, the world’s number three has officially entered the 2004 Bausch & Lomb Championships, scheduled from 5-12 April at Amelia Island Plantation. With Mauresmo joining the 2004 field, the tournament showcases three of the four top players in the world. “We are thrilled to have Amelie in our draw. Fans will be guaranteed an exciting week of tennis with the addition of another former champion joining an already impressive field of top ranked players vying for the 2004 trophy” stated John Alix, tournament’s director.”

I hope she is well by then. I'm finding that watching tennis is a little boring w/o her.

Finally, after 9 long weeks of cold-turkey, we will be able to watch our sweet Mo play again! Joehoe! I really discovered that tennis is a lot less exciting without Amélie and I'm soooooooo happy that she's back. Let us hope she's feeling ok again, physically as well as emotionally. We are right behind you, Mo, every step of the way!!!! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MOOOOOOOO!!!!

A huge Mo-fan in the land of Juju and Kim.

So great to see her back on tour. :) :D I Missed her very much. :sad: Great Semi coming up, between 2 very talented all court artists!!! :) I hope Amelie wins though, cause Henin has been dominating, and i would rather it be more fair and balanced between my 2 favorites. The key for Amelie will be to: Mix up the pace, use the bh slice, hit her shots down the line when she can, serve well, return well, and get to the net as much as possible to put some pressure on Justine!!! Hope its a great one!!!
