Re: S5 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Preview


The Favourites








Myskina is the hot favourite having won two titles and reached one final on clay, she's had some close calls but seems to have the edge, I think she's one of the biggest favourites to win a Slam in a long time. Clijsters has had a disappointing clay season by her standards, her tried and trusted gameplan is no longer effective but she's a two-time winner here, if she won 3 RG titles in a row, she would truly be an ATC legend, finally Alicia has proven she's got some clay-court pedigree this season and is the only player to beat Myskina, so she's definitely in with a chance.


The Contenders






Flavia has grown into a genuine contender in recent weeks and narrowly lost to Myskina in Strasbourg, she's back down to 2 aces, but with a kind draw, could spring a surprise. Domi has been unlucky to draw Myskina for the past two weeks, but she's got a full set of aces and a smart gameplan, I think her breakthrough could come here.


The Dark Horses






The Dangerous Floaters






My prediction for who will win the title?
