Now It’s Time To Say Goodbye

Posted by gauloises1 on February 11, 2010

The FFT held its ‘Farewell to Amelie’ ceremony tonight at the Paris tournament. I didn’t see it, and I’m a little glad. It might have killed me.

Warning: feelings to follow. And pictures, obviously.

One last time in the spotlight.

I have no way of knowing, but I bet Elena handled this beautifully. She’s classy that way. Speaks amazing French, too.

Franny’s speech, on the other hand, I would have loved to have heard for very different reasons.

I hope Alize caught some win from this hug.

Mama Momo!

Is it too late to say ‘don’t go?’

DON’T GO, MOMO.

    I may or may not be in a puddle of my own tears clutching my Momo pictures.

    Hopefully Amelie will have a good post tennis career. Her winning Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2006 after winning the Year End Championships in 2005 have to be the highlight of her career as she got rid of the best player never to win a Slam. Elena Dementieva have that honor now despite winning the gold medal in Beijing.
