July 9, 2006:"I feel that things are different now, that I'm doing things differently on the court and off the court, also. I think I'm much more relaxed, more open to people, not getting frustrated as I did before, in all kinds of ways. So yeah, I'm growing up."
Amelie Mauresmo, a 27-year-old late-bloomer who broke through by winning the 2005 season-ending WTA Championship, then captured the Australian Open, and now the Wimbledon title.
February 1, 2006: "There were many occasions in my career where I could have given up, where I asked myself whether I would ever make it.”
Amelie, who won her first Grand Slam crown, the Australian Open, at age 26, confiding to L'Equipe.
"I still have a lot of work to do to handle my emotions. It's getting repetitive at Roland Garros. It's not a nightmare, there are worse things in life. But it's an immense frustration not to be able to give it my best.”
— Local favorite and third-seeded Amelie plagued by nerves at the French Open in her disappointing 6-4, 6-3 loss to ninth-seeded Elena Dementieva. (2004)
