Mauresmo fights past Radwanska--a good sign

I like this scoreline: 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (6). Yes, it is close, but it also indicates that Amelie Mauresmo hung tough and stayed in the fight, which helped her to overcome a challenge by Agnieszka Radwanska in the third round at Amelia Island. Coming through this match cannot help but give Mauresmo some badly needed confidence.

Each player was broken five times.

And this was Mauresmo's 500th career win!

great comments, Diane.....I was 'watching' the score ticker page on the WTA page, and doing my usual "Oh, no - AMELIE!!!!!" and turning the air blue when she was so close, then got taken to the tie break, and then I was so full of relief that it hadn't occurred to me to think how it would be a confidence boost for her - absolutely on the nail! Yes indeed; a really good sign.

Eagerly awaiting tomorrow's cat blog...... :)

I'm so happy that Amelie hung in there and fought back at the end when she was down in the tie break!!!


all the people that says she should retire should just shut up cos she certainly hasn't lost the fight!!!!
