Amélie Mauresmo retires

Wimbledon is going to be that much more boring in 2010. The woman I most enjoyed watching, who proved that a woman can be fit - muscular, even - but still graceful, announced her retirement at a news conference in Paris during the week. As Paul Newman's article in The Independent makes clear, she is not going to be stuck for alternative employment, but I do hope that the BBC commentary team can sign her up for the June fortnight if RTF don't grab her first.

One item of information still eludes me: does she pronounce her name the French or the Spanish way?
