Former world number 1 and Australian Open and Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo is now three weeks into training with her new coach, Hugo Lecoq, and her new trainer, Xavier Moreau. Mauresmo, who has had a terrible time of it for about a year and a half, parted with longtime coach (and friend) Loic Courteau so that she could have a fresh start and put her game back together.

In the spring, the Frenchwoman attended the opening of a facility in L'Isle-Adam (about twenty minutes outside of Paris) that has been named for her. Le Centre Sportif Amélie Mauresmo is comprised of three gyms, can hold 500 spectators, and includes a variety of sports and exercise activities.

Mauresmo will compete in the new Brisbane International tournament in early January.

thanks for brightening me up, and picture of Amelie was just the boost I needed.

I hope she knows how many of us are wishing her well. The last two years have been just so unfortunate.
