I speak of Amelie Mauresmo, a fan favorite, and by all clues a good and humble person too. My God, yesteday's match with #1 on the line as well as the Slam itself was her Waterloo, but inexplicable. She was consistent, played solid, jumped out laser fast, only to choke. Far worse than agaisnt Serena at Wimby or Elena in Paris or an 85% Henin in Athens. Far worse this. No bad calls, no injury issues, no Williams opposed, no Henin across the net. To lose 1-7 in the 3rd set breaker against a player who hit a bucket of sorry doubles and was in some apparently serious health trouble late. Amelie always at one high level without really ever able to put her foot on the gas. Hard to believe than in 1999 AM was considered a huge hitter. Has the game past her by as well? I sense now she will never rise to the occasion and must shoulder the blame herself without fan pity any longer. Is that cruel for a fan to assert? Clijsters is only 20 and has been to Slam finals and reached #1. Could the 1999 Aussie have been Amelie's high point? After over 5 years you'd think she'd evolve a champion calibre heart. I empathize more with Serena being robbed at racket point in the 3rd set down 4-5. As for Amelie, I formally give up.
