Re: S6 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Preview


Odds On




Despite not winning a title on clay this season, I feel Myskina is peaking just in time for the big one, she had a shocking loss in the final in S5 and will be eager to make up for it this season. Hercog has been a revelation to the tour in the past few weeks, she was highly impressive in winning Rome, but was it beginner's luck or is she genuinely this season's Queen of Clay? Finally we have Tammy, the veteran has overcome a slump to become an elite force once again, she has had some great results with just 2 aces, and there's no reason why she can't reproduce that form here this week.


Solid Bets



Cibulkova has had some notable wins so far on clay, but has fallen a short in the latter stages of tournaments, some slight tweaks and she can go all the way. As for Bepa, she is here on name and ace count alone, sadly her form has not been impressive thus far, but she has shown her pedigree and has the ability to become a champion. Lastly we have Henin, I feel Justine, like Spears on plexi, has had some bad draws and has not been able to show her true quality, this could be her breakthrough week.


Outside Chance




My Prediction

Injured Venus Arrives in Paris
Williams has "no expectations" for second major

Venus Williams stretches on a practice court at Roland Garros. Her left ankle is still heavily strapped.
*
PARIS -- Venus Williams was last seen on a tennis court in the finals of Rome. She lost easily, but she couldn't even move because in the semi finals she had tore her ankle while chasing a shot. She missed last week's event due to the injury.
*
Venus has arrived to play at Roland Garros, the second Grand Slam of the season. "It's a Grand Slam, you always try your hardest," Venus said after a practice session earlier today. "My doctor advised me not to play, but at the end of the day you never know what will happen once you're on the court. I want to know that I did my best, whether I can walk, run or breathe on the court or not. If it was up to my doctor, mother, father or sister I wouldn't be here."
*
Venus is scheduled to play #2 Maria Kirilenko in the first round. "I have no expectations. With my ankle, I'm just trying to survive."
*
First round is expected to start on Tuesday.

Re: S6 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Bojana is terrible at ATC. Maybe it's time for a turn-around! She has not managed to win a match in three tries with 3 aces

I doubt that I will make it to the main draw.
