French Open Notebook Thursday

Amelie Mauresmo watched her opponents final shot fly astray, then exhaled. Its still a struggle at the French Open, even now that shes a two-time Grand Slam champion. I felt tight, Mauresmo acknowledged Thursday after almost letting the match slip away before beating another Frenchwoman, Nathalie Dechy, 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-1 to reach the third round at Roland Garros.
