Australian Open and Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo, who retired in December 2009, is revealing her plans for the future and is telling us how she will be “taking the time to rest, to live”.
The Frenchwoman is currently preparing for the New York marathon, with the help of her former fitness trainer. The role of a TV host is also something that appeals to Amelie. As for the things related to tennis, she would like to be a tournament director, but coaching is definitely not an option, primarily because of excessive traveling.
I can see a pattern: professional tennis players miss simple life, are sick of traveling, and would like to engage in and learn about other things besides tennis.
I agree, Marija, tennis often takes over people’s lives. I will miss Amelie, she’s not going to be a comeback queen I think. But anyway, she’s always been remembered as a great player. And fun to watch 🙂
