Re: S2 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Player Of The Week



Lindsay Davenport


I'm giving it to Lindsay again so everyone in the field has at least 1 ace, and also she made the QFs last week and everyone else had at least 2 aces

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: S2 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Preview


The Favourites








Well Kim is the obvious favourite, her strategy has been working against almost everyone, she has to watch out for a few that can hang with her though, and I feel that her opponents are beginning to work out her plan, Kirilenko only has 1 ace, but her points have been successful, Maria is highly unpredictable however, so any results is possible, and Capriati has been very solid, she could take the title with a good draw.


The Contenders








"Queen" Dechy has been in erratic form and this is her last chance to get a good result on one of her strong surfaces, she has the game, but she's maybe lacking some confidence, Pennetta's points have really impressed me, she's definitely one to watch, and we can't discount Tammy, she won the Australian Open with 1 ace, so she can certainly win this with 2.


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters







My prediction for who will win the title?

Re: S2 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Roland Garros Doubles Information




Last week, French duo Nathalie Dechy/Amelie Mauresmo claimed their first career doubles title and reached the top of the rankings. Can they make another run to claim their first grandslam doubles title? Or will Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo/Gisela Dulko be able to avenge their thrashing that they recieved in the finals last week? Or can Elena Dementieva/Nicole Vadisova keep up their solid game and take the crown for themselves? Tune in this week to find out here in Paris, France!


Women's Doubles Draw


(1) Nathalie Dechy/Amelie Mauresmo vs. Anna Kournikova/Maria Kirilenko

(4) Ana Ivanovic/Ai Sugiyama vs. Tatiana Golovin/Alicia Molik

(3) Jelena Jankovic/Martina Hingis vs. Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo/Gisela Dulko

(2) Elena Dementieva/Nicole Vaidisova vs. Flavia Pennetta/Tamarine Tanasugarn

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.
