She didn't believe that she would have enough time to prepare if she was left hanging like this, so decided to prepare for the US Open instead.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

Stupid.Horrible.Slow-thinking.Whorebag.

She just ruined Amelie's chances of going to the Olympics all for her own selfish needs. Why the hell couldn't she make this decision earlier?!

This has annoyed me endlessly. What a selfish wench! Amelie really wanted to go...and Pierce sits on her behind thinking about it for days on end? She was never going to go, but probably wanted some last ditch effort of fame and glory.

She always was slow.

I don't quite get that. Isn't she prepared? She is playing Cincinnati, so she would need to be prepared for one or the other.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

FRANCE TENNIS BEIJING/08 OLIMPICS TEAM case is one of most pathetic stories in new history of Olympics games

(sorted by June 11 rankings)
Richard Gasquet
Marion Bartoli
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Alize Cornet
Paul-Henri Mathieu
Tatiana Golovin
Gilles Simon
Virginie Razzano
Mary Pierce
Amelie Mauresmo

Gael Monfils
Michael Llodra
Pauline Parmentier

bold - withdraw
blue - questionable


Three best ranked French players already withdraws (Gasquet, Bartoli and Tsonga) plus two most acomplished players Mauresmo and Pierce. Instead 4 TOP20 players, France will represent only at hardcourts useless Cornet (just 6 careers TOP100 wins out of clay - and she BTW retire from her todays match).

What a useless Tennis assotiation in country with big Tennis tradition After Mauresmo case i'm not surprised why nobody want to compete.

With Llodra and Parmentier to Olympic Gold Alez!

Exactly. It was more like sour grapes to me actually.

Amélie renonce aux Jo. :
03/07/2008

Amélie a souhaité revenir sur sa non sélection en simple et sa décision de renoncer aux Jo.

N’ayant pas été retenue en simple par la Fédération Française de Tennis pour tenter de ramener une médaille a la France et dans l’optique de me préserver sur le plan physique en raison d’un calendrier inadapté, j’ai décidé de renoncer aux Jo de Pekin pour me consacrer à mon dernier objectif majeur de la saison : l’US Open. Je partirai donc dès le 10 août pour jouer deux tournois de préparations Cincinnati et New Haven. C’est avec tristesse que je prends cette décision car jouer pour mon pays mes derniers JO me tenaient très à cœur.

Here Ya Go

I was just thinking that. When I saw the thread I was like, Mary, I love your game and all that, but you were a real bitch to do that.

Poor Amelie.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

i guess if we never see mary on court again i'll still have all those amazing memories, the olympics was my last hope mary would ever come back. i'll miss you mary, no one does drama or owns a tennis court like she did, 2005 was a year i'll treasure after watching you struggle so much after your 2000 french win!
not looking good for chakvetadze, my 2 favourite players have both been forced to quit before they wanted to give up (seles, mary), chaky please wrap yourself in cotton wool!

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

I am reallyyyy annoyed about this... Could she not have made her decision earlier.

Mauresmo really wanted to play these olympics, it was her last chance.

Selfish move by Mary if you ask me.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

Its a shame for Mary. Wasn't she meant to be coming back in Budapest? I doubt we will see her play again - but players like Date and Shultz-Murphy have come back and had flirtations with doing well at WTA tournaments so we never know.
