Lesbian Tennis Star Amelie Mauresmo Scores Her 25th Title

FRANCE TENNIS OPEN GAZ DE FRANCE

Martina Navra-who? Gay lady’s tennis is now all about Amelie Mauresmo, the French force who just won the Open GDF Suez tournament yesterday. It’s her 25th title.

Though it took an injury that took Serena Williams out of the game.

After struggling through a pair of injury-plagued seasons, two-time Grand Slam champion Amelie Mauresmo looks like she is getting back to her best.

The former top-ranked Frenchwoman, who has beaten four top 10 players already this year, won the Open GDF Suez on Sunday for her first WTA Tour title since February 2007.

“There were times when I doubted myself. I had moments when I asked myself if it was worth it,” the 29-year-old Mauresmo said after her win. “But each time I told myself ‘maybe you should quit,’ I didn’t feel it at all.”

Mauresmo won the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles in 2006, but she was hit by a string of injuries over the last two years. After an emergency appendectomy in March 2007, she strained her right adductor and then injured her left thigh and her right rib muscle in 2008. [AP]

      hum?
      not a damn thing took Serena “out of the game”!Whoever this idiot who wrote that article should be shot because 1-Serena went to Paris because she just purchased an appartment there
      2-she got a nice appearance fee to take part in the tournament
      3-she pulled out because she got HALF amillion $ just to show up;that’s right $500.000 in appearance fee in Dubai!
      Mauresmo wasn’t handed her 25TH title;she had to face and beat 3 top 10 players this week

      Serena got “injured” only to PUNK out of Paris after shopping and fly to Dubai to cash her check and go do more shopping;this time duty-free!!
