Amelie is just gorgeous on this board.
COME BACK baby...
The horrible thing that I just notices, is that as 3rd seed, she will play Rena in semis and THAT is UNFAIR - because as n°2 she would have played Jelena and easily win.

Some rather bad news - according to Hypnovel on the official website (and thanks, Lapin), Amélie re-injured her knee a couple of days ago :sad: :sad: :sad: She was supposed to have played an exhibition match against Nathalie Dechy tonight, but didn't. Right now, it doesn't look good for her playing this week, unless, perhaps, she can play her first match later in the week :sad: :sad: :sad:
Praying for a very speedy recovery......

It's not her knee!!!!

This from sports.fr - (thank you babblefish )

One diminishes for Mauresmo the 02/02/2003 - 11:24
Amélie Mauresmo which was to make her return in front of the public at the time of an exhibition at the time of the Tournament of Petis Have in Tarbes, preferred to give up. The French n°1, whose knee seems perfectly cured, suffers from small cramp which should not call into question her participation in Open Gas of France, as from Monday.

Bonjour à toutes et à tous, nous avons le plaisir d'accueillir Amélie Mauresmo !
Salut à tous. Très heureuse de pouvoir dialoguer avec vous.

ameliefana : Amélie, comment te sens-tu à la veille de ta reprise ?
Le genou va très bien. J'ai un petit problème d'adducteur qui j'espère n'est pas trop grave.

gauthier : Quels sont tes objectifs dans le tournoi ?
Simplement reprendre contact avec le terrain. Je n'ai pas d'objectif particulier. Je suis déjà heureuse de pouvoir rejouer.

emmanuel : Et tu rencontres qui au premier tour ?
Nathalie Dechy ou Sugiyama. Je commence jeudi.

julien : Tu te sens forte mentalement ?
Oui même plus que lorsque j'ai arrêté. Cela m'a renforcé.

Floflo94 : Salut Amélie, je suis trop contente que tu sois là ! Quel est ton principal objectif pour 2003 ?
Ca n'a pas changé pas rapport à 2002, toujours la première place mondiale. Et aussi les tournois du Grand Chelem, en essayant d'éviter une finale Williams/Williams.

grazouille : Es-tu contente de retrouver directement le public parisien ou aurais-tu préféré reprendre ailleurs ?
Je suis super heureuse d'être ici à Paris. Mais c'est vrai que ça me mettra une pression supplémentaire. Mais j'ai hâte d'y être. C'est une grande joie.

FLO : Bonjour Amélie. Avant de rentrer sur le court, as-tu le trac (comme un artiste peut ressentir ça en rentrant sur scène) ? Si oui, est-ce que ce trac est proportionnel à l'importance du match (ou du tournoi) ou du nombre de spectateurs ?
Pour le trac, ça c'est sûr. Mais c'est souvent en début de tournoi. En fait parce qu'on n'a pas trop de repères. Après, normalement, c'est de mieux en mieux.

chouchi : Penses tu que Serena Williams est imbattable ???
Non. Si je me dis ça, je n'ai plus d'objectif. Je pense vraiment qu'elle est prenable même si c'est une grande joueuse. Il faudra innover, aller vers l'avant et la contrer en variation.

watersoul : Amélie, as-tu des porte-bonheur ou des superstitions avant des matches ?
Non pas vraiment, j'ai un rituel que je mets en place.

melanie : Que penses-tu de la défaite de l'équipe de France masculine en Coupe Davis ?
C'était déjà un moment triste pour tout le monde. Et je crois que l'expérience servira à tous. Et j'espère que Paulo le digèrera le plus rapidement possible.

Bergamo : Quel secteur de ton jeu travailles-tu le plus ?
Le jeu vers l'avant sans hésitation. Parce que j'ai vraiment envie de continuer sur la lancée de ce que j'ai pu faire fin 2002. On a beaucoup travaillé cet hiver, j'espère que ça va porter ses fruits.

gésy : As-tu douté de ton retour sur les courts durant cette longue absence ? Bizzz.
Oui, au début de la blessure. Il m'est arrivé de penser que je ne rejouerais plus. C'était difficile mais dès que j'ai eu les premières sensations sur le terrain, cela m'a redonné espoir.

Maël : Quel est ton joueur préféré (circuit ATP) ?
J'aime beaucoup Agassi. Au delà du joueur, c'est un mec adorable et qui porte vraiment la gentillesse dans son regard.

Qtchav : Quelle est ta plus belle victoire ?
Je pense qu'au niveau de l'émotion c'était vraiment le Gaz de France en 2001. Sinon, il y a eu des grands moments tennistiques, de grands matches. Mais c'est vrai que c'est difficile de sortir un moment particulier. Je pourrais vous en parler toute la soirée.

omar : Surfes-tu beaucoup sur Internet ?
Pas énormément. J'avoue que depuis que nous jouons au tarot et à la belote en tournoi, j'ai un peu moins de temps.

flo : Lorsque tu as décidé que tu voulais devenir joueuse professionnelle, est-ce que la célébrité faisait partie des choses qui te plaisaient dans ce métier ? Voyais-tu la notoriété comme tu la vis maintenant ? Bisous.
Pas du tout. Je ne pouvais pas imaginer ce que c'était. C'est surtout la passion du jeu qui te donne la force de passer les différentes étapes et donc de continuer et de progresser.

aurele05 : Penses-tu faire des tournois en double mixte ? Si oui, avec qui ?
Déjà j'ai du mal à jouer en double tout simplement. Donc c'est vrai que le mixte ce serait vraiment très occasionnel.

bea : Que penses-tu des journalistes sportifs ?
Alors là je ne peux pas trop m'exprimer sur la question, car j'en ai un à côté. Mais j'avoue que ça se passe plutôt bien. On se côtoie sur tous les tournois. Donc il y a une complicité qui se créé.

patkaas : Que fais-tu comme loisirs en dehors du tennis ?
Ca me prend énormément de temps de jouer et de m'entraîner. Donc j'ai l'occasion de faire des visites de châteaux, de passer mon permis moto, et de profiter de mes amis. Pas très excitant mais c'est ce qui me plaît. Des choses assez simples finalement. Gali-Galou : A part le tennis, de quoi aurais-tu pu faire ton métier ?
C'est une question que je ne me suis jamais posée. Car dans ma tête ça a toujours été le tennis, même quand dans les petites classes on vous demande sa profession. Moi c'était le tennis. Sinon il y avait aussi vétérinaire.

acme : Quelle est la joueuse pour laquelle tu as le plus d'admiration (en activité ou pas ) ?
Il y a Graff qui a un palmarès absolument exceptionnel. Il y a Navratilova. Et il y en a quelques unes qui ont marqué le tennis. J'admire aussi le courage d'une Monica Seles qui a su passer par une épreuve psychologique très difficile.

Aaclof : A ton avis, quel est, avec ton jeu, le tournoi du Grand Chelem le plus difficile à gagner ?
Je ne pense pas qu'il y en ait un qui soit plus difficile compte tenu de mes innombrables qualités tennistiques. Plus sérieusement, je pense être vraiment capable de briller dans chacun d'eux.

mauresque : Penses-tu que le service volée va se développer dans le tennis féminin pour palier à la puissance des Williams ?
Oui je pense et probablement plus rapidement qu'on ne le pense. C'est effectivement une des manières de contrer la puissance. C'est une des raisons, au delà du fait que je prenne un énorme plaisir à le faire, pour lesquelles j'oriente mon jeu vers l'avant.

popol : As-tu déjà joué contre un tennisman français professionnel (Grosjean, Santoro, etc.) ? Et quel a été le résultat ?
J'ai eu l'occasion de taper avec Scud, mais on n'a jamais fait de match. Pour le résultat, il n'y a pas photo. Ils sont plus forts physique oblige.

mehdi100 : Est ce que la Fed Cup fait partie de tes objectifs cette année ?
Bien sûr. C'est avec les Grands Chelems un des événements qui me tient à coeur. J'aimerai vraiment qu'on arrive à de beaux résultats.

carine1902 : Quelle est la joueuse qui te pose le plus de problème pour la battre ?
Je dirai les Williams puisque je ne les ai jamais battues alors que j'ai battu toutes les autres. A mon grand regret je dois attendre encore un peu.

elina : Dans les jeunes joueuses qui arrivent sur le circuit senior ou celles qui y sont arrivés la saison dernière, est-ce qu'il y en a une que tu penses en mesure d'arriver dans les 10 premières mondiales d'ici quelques années ?
Je ne fais pas trop attention aux jeunes joueuses qui arrivent. Il y a par exemple Hantuchova qui est arrivée récemment et qui est déjà dans les toutes meilleures. Donc je vois au fur et à mesure.

Maurice : Si tu joues des doubles cette année, ce sera avec qui ?
On va essayer de jouer ensemble avec Nathalie, Emilie ou Stéphanie pour essayer de former une équipe de Fed Cup.

Malin : Quelle musique écoutes-tu en ce moment ?
J'aime bien Robbie Williams en ce moment, Nelly Furtado pas très connue mais superbe album.

bea : As-tu des amies sur le circuit ? Vous voyez-vous en dehors du tennis ?
Non on ne peut pas dire des amies comme moi je considère. En revanche avec les Françaises surtout on va régulièrement dîner ensemble.

grazouille : Quelle est l'ambiance dans cette jeune équipe de Fed Cup, il doit y avoir de bonnes rigolades, non ?
Ah oui il y a des bons moments. L'ambiance est meilleure qu'il y a quelques années. C'est vrai qu'il commence à se créer un esprit sympa.

emmanuel : Est-ce que tu nous proposes une nouvelle tenue pour ce retour ???
Pour ça il faut venir à l'Open. Ce sera dans la continuité de 2002.

greg33_1 : En sais tu plus que nous sur le possible retour de Martina Hingis ?
Pas vraiment. Je suis autant au courant que vous. Je sais que pour l'instant le circuit n'a pas l'air de trop lui manquer, contrairement à moi. Et comme je ne l'ai pas souvent au téléphone je ne peux pas vous dire.

RiverAngel : Après le tennis, quelle est la chose dont tu ne peux te passer ?
C'est trop intime comme question. La réponse est censurée.

chritou215 : Bonjour Amélie, sur tes conseils j'ai lu Stefan Zweig, quel bouquin lis-tu en ce moment ?
Alors le dernier et le premier de la fille Gabin qui m'a été envoyé par un ami. Je commence et je vous donnerai des nouvelles sur la rubrique coup de coeur après l'étape Harley Davidson.

piolin : Quel est ton avis sur le dopage ?
Je pense que ceux qui se dopent peuvent se regarder dans une glace et qu'ils ont envie de mourir à 30 ans, c'est leur problème. On ne peut jamais vraiment savoir tant que les contrôles sanguins ne sont pas là pendant et en dehors des tournois.

FLO : A quoi penses-tu lors des changements de côté ? Repenses-tu aux points passés ? A ta tactique de jeu ? Regardes-tu autour de toi ? Essaies-tu de communiquer avec tes proches ?
Alors dans l'ordre : j'essaie d'analyser la situation par rapport au jeu, en repensant aux différents points, je regarde de temps en temps mon clan. Mais c'est plutôt eux qui m'encouragent, il n'y a pas vraiment d'échange.

mehdi100 : Combien de jours de vacances prends-tu sans toucher la raquette ?
Au maximum 15 jours en sachant que dans ces 15 jours il y a une semaine de physique pour garder la condition.

Stella : Salut. Ce n'est pas d'actualité, mais as-tu déjà une idée de reconversion ?
Phéno : S'il y a un après tennis, pour toi ce sera quoi ? Cinéma comme ils te l'ont proposé à Stade2 ?
bea : Penses-tu déjà à ton après tennis ? Qu'aimerais-tu faire ?
C'est encore loin, vous m'envoyez à la retraite tout de suite ou quoi ! Je n'ai pas trop d'idées, pourquoi pas du cinéma. Je demanderai à Boujenah.

elina : Quelles vont être les nouveautés sur ton site ? Dis-nous pour nous mettre l'eau à la bouche ;-)
Comment vous n'y êtes pas encore allé, il y a la rubrique Coup de Coeur, les Passions qui ont changé et les photos qui vont se renouveler plus souvent.

melanie : Quels sont les plus grands sacrifices que tu as dû faire ?
Il n'y pas de grandes choses. C'est parfois des soirées qui sont très tentantes, mais non. Mais j'essaie quand même de me vider la tête de temps en temps. Je ne me plains pas.

lili : Quand est ce que tu nous offres un Grand Chelem ?
Le plus tôt possible. Je signe tout de suite. C'est vrai que je travaille pour ça. Mais c'est difficile de donner une date. Je prendrai de toute façon n'importe lequel.

johanna : Reviendras-tu en Belgique au Women Tennis Trophy de Ciney (tournoi exhibition) ?
Oui volontiers. J'aurai dû en décembre mais mon genou ne m'as pas permis de faire le déplacement.

cj : As-tu le temps de visiter la ville ou tu joues en tournoi ?
Pas vraiment. C'est aéroport, hôtel, club, et quand c'est fini on part. Je visiterai à la retraite.

grazouille : Et à qui veut gagner des millions avec Michel Boujenah vous avez décroché le grand chelem ?
tauwanda : Comment as-tu trouvé l'émission avec J P Foucault ?
Vous n'avez plus beaucoup de temps à attendre pour voir le résultat. En tout cas, j'étais hyper stressée. C'est mon dernier mot.

subway : Après les retraites de Tauziat, Testud, Halard… tu es un peu seule (avec Nathalie Dechy) à la tête du tennis féminin français, quelles sont les jeunes joueuses françaises qui ont de l'avenir selon toi ?
On parle beaucoup de Bartoli, je ne l'ai personnellement jamais vu jouer, mais il faut qu'elle arrive vite on a besoin de plus d'homogénéité.

grazouille : Quelle est la vile et/ou l'ambiance que tu préfères en tournoi ?
J'aime beaucoup l'Australie et Melbourne en particulier. Et sinon Rome c'est très sympa, après la France bien sûr.

Floflo94 : Que penses-tu jeune Richard Gasquet ?
Il a l'air très impressionnant. Apparemment il va monter très vite dans la hiérarchie. Et c'est très bon pour le tennis français.

johanna : As-tu souvent l'occasion de voir ta famille ?
Joker.

Mike : Penses-tu pouvoir gérer ton stress maintenant ?
Oui je pense que j'ai progressé à ce niveau là. Mais bon ce n'est jamais acquis. On n'est jamais à l'abri d'une rechute.

kiki75012 : La Fed Cup est-elle importante à tes yeux ?
Oui mais j'aimerai qu'on ait le format Coupe Davis pour toutes les rencontres.

momolle : Et Roland Garros dans tout ça ?
Roland Garros c'est bien sûr un rêve.

patkaas : Partages-tu beaucoup d'émotion avec tes fans ? Et est-ce que tu les rencontres ?
Justement le Gaz de France c'est un des moments ou je partage vraiment énormément de choses avec eux. Et c'est vraiment génial. Par contre, je ne les rencontre pas assez souvent.

Merci beaucoup Amélie Mauresmo, le mot de la fin ?
Je vous embrasse tous et venez au Gaz de France. Merci d'avoir été là et à bientôt.

Hello with all and all, we are pleased to accomodate Amélie Mauresmo! Hello with all. Very happy to be able to dialogue with you.

ameliefana: Amélie, how do you feel you the day before your recovery? The knee is very well. I have a small problem of supply main which I hope is not too serious.

emmanuel: And you meetings which with the first turn? Nathalie Dechy or Sugiyama. I begin Thursday.

Julien: You smell yourself strong mentally? Yes even more than when I stopped. That reinforced me.

Floflo94: Salut Amélie, I am too content that you would be there! Which is your main goal for 2003? Ca did not change not report/ratio at 2002, always the first world place. And also tournaments of the Large Slam, while trying to avoid a Williams/Williams finale.

grazouille: Es you satisfies to find the public of Paris directly or you would have preferred to begin again elsewhere? I am super happy here to be in Paris. But it is true that that will put an additional pressure to me. But I am in a hurry to be there. It is a great joy.

FLO: Hello Amélie. Before returning on the court, do you have the trac (as an artist can feel that while returning on scene)? If so, is this trac proportional to the importance of the match (or of the tournament) or of the number of witnesses? For the trac, that it is sure. But it is often at the beginning of tournament. In fact because one does not have too much reference mark. Afterwards, normally, it is better and better.

chouchi: You think that Serena Williams is unbeatable??? Not. If I say myself that, I do not have any more an objective. I really think that it is seizable even if it is a large player. It will be necessary to innovate, go forwards and to counter it in variation.

watersoul: Amélie, do you have amulets or superstitions before matches? Not really, I have a ritual which I set up.

melanie: What do you think of the defeat of the team of male France out of Davis Cut? It was already a sad moment for everyone. And I believe that the experiment will be used for all. And I hope that Paulo will digèrera it as soon as possible.

Bergamo: Which sector of your play do you work more? Play forwards without hesitation. Because I want really to continue on the impetus of what I could do at the end of 2002. One worked much this winter, I hope that that will bear its fruits.

gésy: Did you doubt your return on the courts during this long absence? Bizzz. Yes, at the beginning of the wound. It sometimes happened to me to think that I do not rejouerais any more. It was difficult but as soon as I had the first feelings on the ground, that gave again me hope.

Maël: Which is your preferred player (circuit ATP)? I like much Agassi. To the player, it is an adorable guy and who carries really the kindness in his glance.

Qtchav: Which is your more beautiful victory? I think that on the level of the emotion it was really the Gas of France in 2001. If not, great moments ago tennistic, large matches. But it is true that it is difficult to leave one particular moment. I could speak all the evening about it to you.

omar: Surfes you much on Internet? Not enormously. I acknowledge that since we play the tarot and belote in tournament, I have a little less time.

flo: When you decided that you wanted to become professional player, the celebrity did belong to the things which liked you in this trade? Did you see notoriety like you live it now? Kisses. At all. I could not imagine what it was. It is especially the passion of the play which gives you the force to pass the various stages and thus to continue and progress.

aurele05: Do you think of making tournaments in mixed double? If so, with which? Already I have evil to play in double quite simply. Thus it is true that mixed it would be really very occasional.

bea: What do you think of the sports correspondents? Then there I cannot express myself too much on the question, because I have some at side. But I acknowledge that that occurs rather well. One côtoie on all the tournaments. Thus there is a complicity which created.

patkaas: What do you make like leisures apart from tennis? Ca enormously takes time to me to play and to involve me. Thus I have the occasion to make visits of castles, to pass my motorbike licence, and to benefit from my friends. Not very exciting but it is what I like. Rather simple things finally.

Gali-Galou: Separately tennis, of what could you have made your trade?
It is a question which I never put myself. Because in my head that was always tennis, even when in the small classes one asks you for his profession. Me it was tennis. If not there was also veterinary.

acme: Which is the player for whom you have the most admiration (in activity or not)?
There is Graff which has an absolutely exceptional prize list. There is Navratilova. And there are of them some which marked tennis. I admire also the courage of Monica Seles which knew to pass by a very difficult psychological test.

Aaclof: With is your opinion, which, with your play, the tournament of the Large Slam most difficult to gain?
I do not think that there is of them one which is more difficult taking into account my innumerable tennistic qualities. More seriously, I think of being really able to shine in each one of them.

mauresque: Do you think that the service stolen will develop in female tennis for stage with the power of Williams?
Yes I think and probably more quickly than it is thought. It is indeed one in the manners of countering the power. It is one of the reasons, beyond the fact that I take an enormous pleasure to do it, for which I direct my play towards the front one.

popol: You already played against a professional French tennis player (Grosjean, Santoro, etc.) And which was the result?
I had the occasion to type with Scud, but match was never made. As a result, there is not photo. They are stronger physique obliges.

mehdi100: Is what the EDF Cup belongs to your objectives this year?
Of course. It is with the Large Slams one of the events which holds me with heart. I will really like that one arrives at beautiful results.

carine1902: Which is the player who poses you the most problem to beat it?
I will say Williams since I never beat them whereas I beat all the others. With my great regret I must wait still a little.

elina: In the young players who arrive on the circuit senior or those which arrived there last season, is there of them one which you think able of arriving in the first 10 world from here a few years?
I do not pay too attention to the young players who arrive. There is for example Hantuchova which arrived recently and which is already in all the best. Thus I see progressively.

Maurice: If you cheeks of the doubles this year, it will be with which?
One will try to play together with Nathalie, Emilie or Stéphanie to try to train a team of EDF Cup.

Malignant: Which music listenings you in this moment?
I like Robbie Williams in this moment, Nelly Furtado not very known but superb album.

bea: Do you have friends on the circuit? Do you see yourselves apart from tennis?
Not one cannot say friends as me I consider. On the other hand with the Frenchwomen especially one regularly will dine together.

grazouille: Which is environment in this young team of EDF Cup, it must y have good funs, not?
Ah yes good moments ago. Environment is better than a few years ago. It is true that it starts to create a sympathetic spirit.

emmanuel: Do you propose a new behaviour for this return to us???
For that it is necessary to come to the Open one. It will be in the continuity of 2002.

greg33_1: In you know more than us about the possible return of Martina Hingis?
Not really. I am well-informed as much as you. I know that for the moment does not seem too it to miss the circuit, contrary to me. And as I often do not have it on the telephone I cannot say to you.

RiverAngel: After is tennis, which the thing of which you cannot do?
It is too intimate like question. The answer is censured.

chritou215: Hello Amélie, on your councils I Stefan Zweig, which book do you read in this moment read?
Then the last and the first of the Gabin girl who was sent to me by a friend. I start and I will give you news on the heading blow of heart after the stage Harley Davidson.

piolin: Which is your opinion on doping?
I think that those which are doped can be looked in an ice and which they have desire for dying in 30 years, it is their problem. One can never really know as long as blood controls are not there during and apart from the tournaments.

FLO: With what do think you during the changes on side? Do you reconsider at the last points? With your tactic of play? Do you look at around you? Do you try to communicate with your close relations?
Then in the order: I try to analyze the situation compared to the play, while reconsidering at the various points, I look at my clan from time to time. But it is rather them which encourage me, it does not have there really an exchange.

mehdi100: How many days of holidays do you take without touching the racket?
To the maximum 15 days by knowing that in these 15 days one week ago of physics to keep the condition.

Stella: Hello. It are not topicality, but do you have already an idea of reconversion?
Phéno: If there is after tennis, for you it will be what? Did cinema as they propose it to you in Stade2?
bea: Do you think already of your after tennis? What would you like to make?
It is still far, you send to me with the retirement immediately or what! I do not have too many ideas, why not cinema. I will ask Boujenah.

elina: Which will be the innovations on your site? Say to us to put water at the mouth; -)
How you did not go yet there, there are the Coup heading of Heart, Passions which changed and the photographs which will be more often renewed.

melanie: Which are the greatest sacrifices which you had to make?
It there not of large things. In fact sometimes evenings are very trying, but not. But I nevertheless try to empty the head from time to time. I lime pits not.

lili: When you us offers a Large Slam?
As soon as possible. I sign immediately. It is true that I work for that. But it is difficult to give a date. I will take in any event any.

johanna: Will you return to Belgium in Women Tennis Trophy de Ciney (tournament exhibition)?
Yes readily. I will have had in December but my knee did not allow me to make displacement.

cj: Do you have time to visit the city or you cheeks in tournament?
Not really. It is airport, hotel, club, and when it is finished one leaves. I will visit with the retirement.

grazouille: And with which wants to gain million with Michel Boujenah you took down the large slam?
tauwanda: How did you find the emission with J P Foucault?
You do not have much any more of time to wait to see the result. In any case, I was hyper stressed. It is my last word.

subway: After are the retirements of Tauziat, Testud, Halard... you a little alone (with Nathalie Dechy) with the head of French female tennis, which are the young French players who have future according to you?
One speaks much about Bartoli, I personally never saw it playing, but it is necessary that it arrives quickly one needs more than homogeneity.

grazouille: Which is the cheap one and/or the environment which you prefer in tournament?
I like much Australia and Melbourne in particular. And if not Rome they is very sympathetic, after France of course.

Floflo94: What do you think young Richard Gasquet?
It has the very impressive air. Apparently it will go up very quickly in the hierarchy. And it is very good for French tennis.

johanna: Do you often have the occasion to see your family?
Joker.

Mike: Do you think of being able to manage your stress now?
Yes I think that I progressed on this level there. But good it is never acquired. One is never safe from a relapse.

kiki75012: Is the EDF Cup significant in your eyes?
Yes but I will like that one has the format Coupe Davis for all the meetings.

momolle: And Roland Garros in all that?
Roland Garros it is of course a dream.

patkaas: Divisions you much of emotion with your fans? And you them meetings?
Precisely the Gas of France it is one of the moments or I really enormously divide things with them. And it is really brilliant. On the other hand, I rather often do not meet them.

Thank you very much Amélie Mauresmo, the word of the end?
I kiss you all and come to Gas from France. Thank you to have been there and with soon

Mauresmo wins comeback match in Paris

February 6, 2003

AP - Feb 5, 5:29 EST

PARIS (AP) -- A tearful Amelie Mauresmo made a strong comeback before a home crowd, defeating Japan's Ai Sugiyama 7-5, 6-2 Thursday to reach the quarterfinals of the $585,000 Gaz de France.

The third-seeded Frenchwoman had been sidelined for 3 1/2 months because of her ailing right knee. After her victory, she clutched her head, looked up, then sat and wept. :) :sad: :)

``I went from a sluggish start to great joy at the end,'' Mauresmo said. ``The public was there for me again when I needed them. I'm happy to be back and happy to have victory as a bonus.''

Mauresmo, who won this tournament in 2001, plays Spain's Magui Serna on Friday.

Mauresmo's left thigh was wrapped because of a slight strain during practice.

She got off to a shaky start, trailing 4-0 and committing two double faults in her first service game. She won a long rally on her second match-point with a backhand crosscourt flick.

``I had to work the tension out of my legs first,'' she said.

In one stretch, Mauresmo reeled off eight straight games.

``I really unleashed my shots in the second set,'' she said.

I love this...

From L'Equipe website today (with a little help from babblefish ;)):

Mauresmo, queen of suspense

After almost four months of absence, Amélie Mauresmo took
again the way of the courts victoriously. The Japanese woman Ai
Sugiyama, beaten 7-5, 6-2, gave her wire to retordre, but it is
especially the Frenchwoman who somewhat played with the fire and the nerves of the public.

Test successful for Amélie

Amélie Mauresmo could launch out in the writing of thrillers
to feelings. After suspense that the Frenchwoman involuntarily
cultivated on the date of her return to the competition, the scenario of her match of re-entry vis-a-vis with Ai Sugiyama appears ready to fill all the amateurs of shivers. Enormous doubts about her real level at the beginning of match, bounces with wishes, with periods of euphoria intersected with small alarms... All the ingredients were joined together for a good Hollywood fiction, including an interminable match point, and the "nice one" gains at the end, for the greatest happiness of the spectators of the stage Pierre-of-Coubertin.

The combat that Mauresmo had to carry out to obtain her qualification in quarterfinals has value indeed of test. Opposed to Ai Sugiyama, which practised a tennis at least as solid as against Nathalie Dechy, the number one Frenchwoman did not dispute a first turn like the others. Against the head of series number 7, she quickly understood that it would not have right to the error a long time: playing correctly but without glare, she was found carried out 4-0 by the Japanese woman before reacting. Later, Mauresmo was put in residence to save four balls of first set (5-4). A test passed successfully, which had the double effect to start again the Frenchwoman and to strike her adversary.

Released, slackened physically and mentally, Mauresmo finally started the second set on the hats of wheel, driving in her turn 4-0 before an unproductive period without consequence (4-2). Once the match point finished, Mauresmo enjoyed with its right value her first victory over the circuit since the tournament of Filderstadt in October 2002.

Amélie returned.

:D
