World ranking: 3
Mauresmo arrives after another disappointing exit from the French Open.
This time she suffered a third-round shock at the hands of 17-year-old Serbian Ana Ivanovic.
The Frenchwoman will again seek solace on Wimbledon's grass-courts, where she has reached the semi-finals twice.
In Paris, Mauresmo's flaws - her lack of confidence and ability to close out matches - are magnified by public expectation.
She will be free of such pressures at the All England Club and her physical, attacking game should pay dividends on grass.
Mauresmo closed out 2004 in the best form of her life - reaching a career-high world number one in the rankings, claiming five titles and an Olympic silver medal.
The 25-year-old has made steady progress this season, reaching the last eight at the Australian Open for the third straight time and winning titles in Antwerp and Rome.
But despite her obvious ability, Mauresmo has still only made one Grand Slam final appearance at the Australian Open in 1999.
The Frenchwoman will aim to remove the question mark that hangs over her big-match temperament at Wimbledon.
