Biography:

Amelie Mauresmo is one of the most respected names in women’s tennis since the dawn of the new millennium.  Known for her elite fitness level and intense training regimens, Mauresmo became recognized as a physically dominant player on the tennis court.  Her journey as an athlete started in her home country of France, where she first played tennis.  Like many young tennis stars, Sports Speaker Amelie entered the professional circuit at the adolescent age of 15.  After a couple of years of excelling on the junior tour began she to make a name for herself as one of the top young tennis players in the world.

In 1999, Amelie burst onto the national scene when she dethroned the world No. 1 player Lindsey Davenport in the Australian Open.  Over the next several years, Amelie soared through the tennis ranks and was a perennial top 10 players.   In 2004, Mauresmo reached the honor of being ranked the No. 1 women’s tennis player in the world.  This accomplishment was unique for Mauresmo because at the time she was only the second woman ever to be ranked No.1 without a Grand Slam victory.  She lost her top ranking, but her luck would change in 2006 when she finally would capture the illusive Grand Slam title.  That year, Mauresmo outlasted all of her opponents at both the Australian Open and The Wimbledon Championship. These were her first two Grand Slam Championships, and elevated her to the elite class of female tennis stars.

In her post-playing career, Amelie Mauresmo has continued to stay involved with the game of tennis.  She started a career as a coach and trainer, and she’s worked successfully with top-tier women’s players Victoria Azarenka and Marion Bartoli.  In June 2014 Amelie joined forces with Andy Murray as his new coach, which is quite an accomplishment for a female coach to train a men’s player. She’s also a part-time commentator for EuroSport as a tennis analyst.  In addition to tennis, Mauresmo is openly lesbian and is a major supporter of LGBT athletes.
