i thin kthe first match could be quite tricky conchita is an excellent player with loads more experience but hopefully amelie will ork the magic, other than that her draw looks good if she can convert this chance it may not only boos ther confidence but winning the olypics is a history maker so if she could be successful t'd be really great for her, its almost like another grand slam, i think she has a great chance and she hopefully should convert it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

go amelie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!wooooooooooo oohooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

I just found (somebody posted at Olympics forum) that Amelie is going to play tomorrow aginst Martinez (not before 17.00) on central court.
But I still can't find when she will play doubles.
Any info?

I´m sorry, but I couldn´t find out as well, but I will tell you as soon as I´ve got news for you. I´m watching the videotext, ´cause the offoicial olympic webpage doesn´t say anythig about the time. It´s all a little bit strange, it seems as if she has to play her single and double match today, but still has not started one of them :confused:

Her new diary on her site (sorry but my english is too limited for a translation)

«Un grand bonheur»

mercredi 25 août 2004

"Ces Jeux Olympiques, c’était quelque chose d’exceptionnel ! J’ai franchement vécu un super truc à Athènes, rien à voir avec ce qui avait pu se passer à Sydney il y a quatre ans. J’étais au coeur du village olympique où j’ai vraiment ressenti la joie que procurait une médaille supplémentaire chez les Français. Même si chacun restait concentré sur ses propres objectifs, il y avait une vraie cohésion.

Ce qui me restera le plus, loin devant tout le reste, c’est cette fierté que j’ai pu ressentir, et que je ressens toujours, d’avoir ramené la médaille d’argent à la France. Bien sûr, juste après la finale contre Justine, il y avait la déception de ne pas avoir gagné mais tout s’est très vite enchaîné avec le bonheur et l’émotion de la cérémonie des médailles. Indescriptible tellement c’était fort. Maintenant, après quelques jours de repos, je suis prête pour aborder la quinzaine de l’US Open. Rendez-vous à New-York."

Amélie

From time to time I am visiting her website, too. Maybe your or someone else´s English is good enough to explain, how to send emails to Amelie at her website. :confused: My French is not good enough to manage it. :sad:
