Mauresmo re-enlists

Amelie Mauresmo announced her participation at the Gaz de France Open which will take place from the 2 till the 10 of February 2008.The tennis season is barely ended that the women players already prepare year 2008. The Gaz de France Open has already recorded inscriptions of Marion Bartoli and Amélie Mauresmo, respectively French number 1 and 3 tennis women, as well as the American Serena Williams and the Russian Anna Chakvetadze.

A beginning, full of promises for the Parisian Open who acquires very serious candidates for winning. At the first rank: the ex-number 1 worlwide Amélie Mauresmo. The protecting of loîc Courteau, who will celebrate her eleventh participation there, has always rallied, since 2001, the last square, pocketing win  twice (on 2001 and 2006).

Serena Williams, who blocked her in 1999 and 2003, will comes to put chillies in debates through the drawning lots, which could straight away make billowy.

Marion Bartoly will be informed to magnify the French ranks. The one who became French number 1 tennis women at the end of this successful season, “Little Marion” has never succeeded, for the time being, at Coubertin as she would have liked it.

Quarter finalist’s in 2005, the dynamic brunette girl had left tournament prematurely, being  evicted by her compatriot Nathalie Dechy.  She will have it in heart to make the same fate to Anna Chakvetadze, quarter finalist last year, taken out with loss and crash by Amélie Mauresmo, which had been forced to battle hard to overcome the crafty Russian.
