Thanks so much Linnie for the... ehm, extension ;)

I went to Sportsline a couple of times but I haven't figured how to find those giant-sized pics you often post... :retard:

Any hint? :p

A little hint that was passed on to me ;) - in the url do this: delete _lower.jpg and replace it with _1024x768.jpg and voila! :) But alas, it only works for the Sportsline photos....

Yes Great job Momo - didn't serve that well but everything else was clicking nicely. They don't hand out the trophy after the second round so just pace yourself and peak in week 2. Let them talk up Sharapova, it takes all the pressure off of Amélies quiet bid for the no.1

Interview today:

Q. How much disappointment are you feeling right now?
AMELIE MAURESMO: Well, a big disappointment. You know, especially having played the way I did today. Not satisfying at all. I mean, you can lose some matches, but as long as I felt that I played some good tennis and that the opponent won it, then it's okay. I don't really feel it was the case today.

Q. What were the conditions like, the weather? How difficult did it make play?
AMELIE MAURESMO: Well, it's difficult conditions. Obviously, you know, a lot of wind. But it's the same for both. And she probably adapted a little bit better than I did today. Even though I won that first set, after that I didn't really feel comfortable on the court today.

Q. With all that said, you make that forehand volley, match is over.
AMELIE MAURESMO: Yeah, I know. I mean, what more can I say? I should have made that volley and go through this one without playing my best tennis. Didn't happen like this today.

Q. Were you still thinking about that the next game when you were broken? A couple sloppy points there.
AMELIE MAURESMO: No, not really. But, again, I didn't feel comfortable on the court today, and I think at the key moments you could feel that and you could see that. I wasn't making my shots. You know, she took her chances when she had the opportunities.

Q. When you say you weren't feeling comfortable out there, can you be more specific? Why was that?
AMELIE MAURESMO: I guess it's probably the conditions that gave me a lot of trouble. I think the wind is not great for me. And, again, she played good, she covered a lot of ground and made me play a lot, so...

Q. Disappointing if you would have come in here and gotten further, I don't mean winning the title, but maybe semifinals, maybe the final? You had a better chance to get back close to No. 1.
AMELIE MAURESMO: Yeah, but it's not why I'm disappointed today. Really is the match that gives me a lot of disappointment.

Q. You hit awfully great second serves, but sometimes your double‑fault percentage goes up a little bit. Was today a unique day for the number of double‑faults or was it kind of typical?
AMELIE MAURESMO: No, I think it's ‑‑ again, you know, when you have a lot of wind, you have to serve in different conditions every time, every game you serve. You know, I just didn't adjust the way I should have today to these conditions. That's my fault. That's no excuses for this. So it's not only double‑faults, but also some miss‑hits on the groundstrokes and a few things like that.

Thank goodness at least it wasn't an injury, although she may have a slightly bruised ego ;)

And now I'll direct everyone to the Nasdaq thread :wavey:

Hey everyone! Well, I'm still out here in Indian Wells and I watched the Mauresmo match, in fact I sat in the 2nd row behind her and all I can say is...the interview that Linnie just posted pretty much hit the nail on the head. Momo simply didn't play her best at all. The wind was horriffic, no doubt! Momo had to keep hairspraying her hair during change overs so it wouldn't get in the way! She was completely disgusted with her play, it was evidently clear when she kept yelling at herself and then received a warning for the chair ump for belting a ball waaaaaaaaaaay up into the grandstands and almost out of Stadium 1!!!! Anyway, I met Momo during a practice session before this dreadful 3rd round match and she signed my French flag. All I can say is what a truly kind and modest person! I was able to post the pics on the other Mauresmo board but I can't post them here because the file size limit is 100kb and my pics are about 130kb even with reducing them to website size. Better luck in Miami Momo! We still love ya! :) Back to Vegas soon for me :(

Hey, I have some of my Momo pics I took up on the Momosapiens thread. I was finally able to get them smaller than the allotted 100kb on here. Enjoy!
