Mauresmo outlasts Coin in a classic

amaurismoFrance’s Amelie Mauresmo win over countrywoman Julie Coin in the second round of the Brisbane International.

In a tense third-set tiebreaker, Coin handed the match to Mauresmo when she sent a forehand long. A delighted but relieved Mauresmo turned her face to the roof after securing the 5-7 6-2 7-6(11) win in three hours and fourteen minutes.

The win propels Mauresmo into the quarterfinals where she will most likely meet Ana Ivanovic, unless she is upset by qualifier Roberta Vinci.
