Cornet to face former Wimbledon champion in first round in Eastbourne

We know that Alize Cornet is a clay star in the making, but how does she do on what we may consider the opposite surface? She plays former Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo in the first round of the International Women's Open in Eastbourne next week. Mauresmo, of course, is as down and out as she has ever been. Months off of the tour because of surgery and surgery-induced injury has all but crushed the elegant Frenchwoman. Is there an upset in the making? Or will Amelie put her feet on the grass and start to feel better right away? I know which option I want.

momo is already in Eastbourne! practicing hard (I hope)

I really wish amelie can beat Alize easily and claim back her French number1 spot, her Olympic selection is still dependent on whether mary pierce wants to go to peking or not. mary will take amelie's place if she decides to go. (she has a protected ranking)
