mauresmo leads the series 3-0

2006 BERLIN OPEN CLAY (O) R16 A. MAURESMO 6-4 6-2

2007 PARIS CARPET (I) Q A. MAURESMO 7-6(5) 7-5

2007 ANTWERP CARPET (I) S A. MAURESMO 6-3 3-6 6-2

but sadly for Amelie,Anna is a much improved player since all of these previous outings.Amelie will need to be selective about when to approach the net because Anna has a deadly passing shot.Im picking Anna in 2 sets.

No. Not really. Even if she did, Amelie's defended and gotten good volleys on better passers than Anna is, that's for sure. But Amelie is definitely not the player she used to be, so who knows.

I'd imagine Chakvetadze in three sets, but Amelie winning wouldn't surprise me. Anna won't overpower her, and Amelie's serve would, I'd imagine, be more potent in this arena, kind of like on grass.

Please Amelie. Win. :sad:

i think Anna will try and keep Amelie in the longest slugfest baseline rallies as possible to wear out Amelie and test her fitness but Amelie has the net to break up the play...

it will be close i think, either way it will be a big win for either player, annas first win over momo and in paris and momo beating a top 10 player at home. im going for a 3 set win for anna.

This is for amelie to take.
The head to head suggest it. Anna does'nt hit hard groundstrokes to push amelie back. Anna rather place them well and changes the ball direction but its not a problem for amelie because amelie is fast!
Amelie in 2 or 3 if she choked on one set.

I hope Momo wins this event to regain confidence,she is too good to be overshadowed by the likes of Golovina,Ivanovic and of all people Hantukova.

I remember that last match in Antwerp.
Anna had an in-form Mauresmo well and truly on the ropes early in the third before hitting the self-destruct ....

Mauresmo looked pretty good for 3 games against Eleni today :rolleyes:
The fast indoors suits her game (if she finds it), especially if she is serving well. This is the kind of match to see if the Frenchwoman has still got it. Anna, on the other hand will expect to win this.

Mauresmo Amelie was not able to beat: top30 player since Fed Cup in July (defeated Mara Santangelo), top20 player since Eastbourne'07 in July (won ovver Petrova by retirement, before that won over Peer), and top10 player since last year's Antverp played in February'07 (won over Clijsters).
Chakvetadze ranking is 7.

Two of my faves!!! But have to go with my ultimate favorite..Amelie. She has home court advantage so I am hoping this is the event that changes the slump. C'mon Mauresmo!!

Chakvetadze. Mauresmo will start by leading 4-2 in the first set, choke, recover, choke again to lose the set, recover till 40-0 3-3, choke, lose service game, Crazy Chaky will surface and win the match

All I know is I want to watch it, so someone please upload it!

But truthfully, I don't totally see Anna losing this kind of match.

Mauresmo def Chakvetadze 1-6, 1-5 (15-40)* (Chakvetadze defaulted the match after decapitating 57 members of the partisan French crowd with her racquet)

Ugh. A win over Chakvetadze now is considered a "great" win for someone the caliber of Mauresmo? She has fallen so far. I guess I'll take it. :o

Allez Amelie. I think she can win, but I doubt she thinks she can win. Prove me wrong, beau.

I have a funny feeling Amélie will win - it's strange cause I've had zero confidence in her for a while now but today things will be different!

Anna should win this one like 6-4 6-2 she's by far the better player now and her confidence is running high !

I would argue with your assumption that her confidence is running high because she had a lame aussie open by her standards and done poor at the YEC 07 so i feel that she is there for the taking if Amelie steps up to the plate.....

i would agree with you apart from the bit about the YEC she had a great YEC reaching the semis. i think there was a stat that shes the only YEC semi finalist that hasn't reached a slam final since it was round robin, so you can see what a big acievement that was. but i do believe this year shes not that confident, but this is the type of match that could change it all around for her if she wins.

Her confidence certainly is high right now but she certainly is not a "better" player than amelie. Everyone is really coming down on amelie but she had surgery last year and then skipped the entire summer. Quite frankly it may take amelie a little bit of time to get it back together but shes too good to stay ranked around 18 ....... I hope amelie wins but she may not but if she does than it shows me shes ready to take her rightful place back in the top 10.
