Amelie Mauresmo overcame a slow start to win her first match at No. 1 in the rankings, beating Patty Schnyder of Switzerland 7-5, 6-4 at the Porsche Grand Prix on Thursday. French Open champion Anastasia Myskina and U.S. Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova joined Mauresmo in the quarterfinals. Last month, Mauresmo became the first French tennis player -- man or woman -- to lead the rankings.
