about that no1 thing... David Mercer on Eurosport said he talked to the WTA officials and they said that Amelie was not guaranteed the top spot even if she had won :confused:Without a Slam, it would have been yet another mental demon haunting her anyway. And Loic Courteau was in a long 1-1 chat with a younger prominent player, so he appears to want to jump ship... or would be forced to "walk the plank" if she lost the USO (or YEC @ the minimum, now that she'll still be Slamless).

I'm proud of her too. She is a gutsy fighter. Amelie is lovely, commiseration to all hr fans. She was just SO gracious in defeat. I hope both Elena and Amelie win a Slam soon :)

I am not much of a fan of either players. It's a case of disliking Elena less than Amelie really, but I liked what I saw in Elena. I liked how she didn't give up and fought even not feeling well. Great drama and tennis.

Make that three of us!!!!
Proud to be a Lena D fan!!!!

Lena put up an amazing fight, through injury, sickness, and the #2 player. She really proved again what kind of an amazing player she is.
Sep 7th, 2004, 10:04 PM
Well Lena shows what kind of a player she is even without a killer serve. Just think how much better she would be with a better serve.
Sep 7th, 2004, 10:50 PM
Thats exactly how felt..
its like watching Lindsay vs. Venus..I did NOT want either player to lose..but it had to happen..
I am ecstatic for Elena..but Momo..this is just not the right time YET...

I have to say that I admired Elena's fight. I am not particularly a fan of her (and it HURTS to watch her serve) but her groundies are really great.
poor amelie.. but for some reason it doesn't surprise me..
