Amelie Mauresmo wins

I was just told that Mauresmo has won her first-ever Grand Slam title, by winning the Australian Open. Her opponent, Justine Henin-Hardenne, gave up the match a bit into the second set, complaining of pains.

It may not be the best way to win the tournament, but she won, and that's still a lot.

I'm glad that she managed to humiliate the homophobic John Howard government while at it too.

Now, I'll look forward to a repeat of this performance at the US Open, so that Mauresmo will be able to humiliate W as well.
