there was a shot in the beginning of the 2nd set that was just WOW....a back hand where she kinda jumped...and then the following shot was called out when it called the line. ive just watched that shot about 3 times...love it when she does that.
What a match today...Great win...she seemed in such a good mood and having fun on court trying all sorts of new shuts on court ...she even tried a double handed back hand with a kick a la Safin....it is good to see her playing well and enjoying herself.....when the tourney started she seemed to be lucky enjoying a some how easier draw at the bottom half but after everyone withdrew due to something now the lower part of the draw is the more interesting with a possible Henin hardenne semi final.....
Amelie - Marcos
You laugh at me because I'm different; I laugh because you're all the same
What a performance today - it looked like it would be a difficult match but Amélie is in good form and should be able to take revenge on Nadia tomorrow!
"She brought a fresh approach. It's for that that people loved to see her play.It's for that too that I hated to play her, I dreaded her unpredictability. I had lots of problems to sort out. It was seriously gruelling, a constant battle of tactics. Her exit is a huge loss. It's not like we will find a new Mauresmo tomorrow" - Justine Henin on Amélie Mauresmos retirement
