Amelie gets the jewels
ANTWERP, Belgium — Top-seeded Amelie Mauresmo beat Venus Williams 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 Sunday to win the Diamond Games, denying the American a $1.3 million gemencrusted racket.
Williams, who complained afterward of a stomach injury, needed to beat Mauresmo to win the gold-and-diamond trophy, which goes to the first three-time winner in any five-year span. Since she won the title two of the last four years, Williams will have another shot at the trophy next year.
