Allez Amélie !

French tennis star Amélie Mauresmo is in the finals of the Australian Open Grand Slam tennis tournament this weekend. She'll be playing Justine Henin-Hardenne, from Belgium. Whoever wins, the champion will be francophone. How about that!

*UPDATE* 28 January: Amélie played very well and should be proud. Even though her win was due to Justine falling ill and forfeiting in the second set, Amélie's performance in the match and throughout the tournament demonstrated her prowess as a champion. Here's to a speedy recovery for Justine, and to continued success for Amélie!
