I just finally - Just finally saw the 'new' more confident Amelie in action.

I managed to download Her match against Hingis from Doha, in the viedos thread. I'll probably get a warning in the morning from hall wardens about blocking the internet, but deal lord it was worth it.

Amelie... WOW. He backhand was on fire.. it hasn't been that good for a while, not even at the YEC. There is less tension in it, and she is opening her shoulders more, and swinging from the same place, so hingis really couldn't read the direction. She is moving amazingly, well, playing very ***intelligently*** That required empahsis, because she was hitting the ball in all sorts of unexpected places to keep Hingis thinking + Tired. Her forehand looked a little flatter - either that or she was using more power, because the ball was travelling very quickly.

I haven't seen Amelie play that well ... Ever! She put up some good fights in 2004, 2005 THAT I SAW - but never played that well.

She has really.. improved. She is a much more confident player. She also came to the net more voluntarily - something that would be hard to do, even if you were pointing a gun at her.

I am Just VERY Impressed, and i hope she brings this form to Miami. I can see her beating just about anyone.

I am just really impressed. She is a serious contender for the title, and don't be surprised if she gets it... IF of course she plays as well as i have just seen.

Brilliant. Keep it up Amelie!!! :bowdown: :bowdown:

Oh oh... for those who have the match... that point in the second when she saves break point at 3-2 up, from 30-40 down. That is what i am talking about!! WOW :eek: :eek:

But Kudos to Martina. I think her result will greatly improve of other sufaces, such as Clay, maybe grass... and the indoor carpet courts.

Hardcourts maybe still a bit a of a challenge.

And that hand shake was a little... icy.

That explains it, but I think it almost looked better on her!
