View Full Version : Momo's AO Title vindicated?!?

Jul 8th, 2006, 04:13 PM
I still saw it as a win regardless but will
her detractors finally give her credit
now that she has won Wimbledon?

for each person that votes, "no," I want to hear why.

vindicated. totally!

Amélie needn't be vindicated. Her AO title was won fairly and she OBVIOUSLY deserved it (I'm glad the thread starter agrees with me :) ) Nonetheless, now that she is the new Wimbledon Queen, no one can ever doubt her again: she was always Grand Slam material - only the blind were not able to see it :D

I voted no because there was nothing to vindicate.

Bottom line she was AO Champ 2006.

Aside from mauresmo's nerves, to me there was never a need for vindication. Let's be honest. If Justine was leading Mauresmo at the 2006 Australian Open final, Justine wouldn't have had a "tomy ache." It's just that she was getting a beatdown of a lifetime and didn't have enough class to handle it. So she turned to her old tricks, which were gamesmanships.

It depends what you mean. Just because she beat Justine today doesn't mean that she would have beaten her at the Australian. Just like the thrashing she got in Berlin didn't mean she wouldn't have done. You just plain don't know and can't know what would have happened - maybe Kim would have beaten Amelie? :confused:

What you can know is that she was the best player in the draw at that Slam. Her AO title never needed vindicating, as far as I was concerned. That's the bottom line for me.

Mauresmo's AO win was already vindicated. She was in amazing shape during the whole tournament, and she played amazing tennis there.

Jul 8th, 2006, 04:53 PM
I hope her fans didn't feel she needed to. I never doubted her Australian win.

I think she would won every match in which her opponent retired. She played amazingly during the entire AO, and she earned both of her slams! :)

no more chokomomo :)

As many have said already, it didn't need vindication but I suppose winning today reiterates that she is worthy of a grand slam title.

for all of you that said no, shame on you
