Paris:

Amelie Mauresmo will seek the help of former French Open champion Yannick Noah in her bid for an elusive Grand Slam title. Former world No 1 Mauresmo, who has never won a Grand Slam, announced on her website that she hopes Noah will help her overcome her big-match nerves. "Yannick Noah will help her to overcome her mental block in big matches, so she can one day win a Grand Slam," a statement said on her website. "Roland Garros will be the first big objective of this new duo," it added. Currently fourth in the WTA entry rankings, Mauresmo will continue to work with her coach Loic Courteau. She lost to tournament winner Serena Williams in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open last month. Noah, who won Roland Garros in 1983, is the last French man to win a Grand Slam. (AP)
