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.

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