Re: S3 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Preview


The Favourites








For the second season in a row, Kim is the clear favourite having won two titles on clay already, it will take a big performance to stop her, Jidkova has used her 3 aces well and should have a good run, and Nastya is the defending champion, and that's basically the only reason why she's here.


The Contenders








JJ may not have the stamina to last the entire tournament but she should take out most of the 0-2 acers, Kaia is proving to be a formidable opponent on this surface and seems ready for the breakthrough and Anne has shown she can be devastating with 4 aces, but for some reason always falls short.


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters








My prediction for who will win the title?

Re: S3 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Please draw Nastya/Misa in the same quarter please. So it will guarantee her to go further than quarterfinals.

Re: S3 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Are you kidding me? I won 2 matches on a surface I suck on, I beat the POTW and I still get screwed over and that fugly ass skank gets POTW.

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