Yaroslava Shvedova


Yari wins POTW for the second time in three weeks after another strong run in Strasbourg, and she now has 3 aces to use this week

Re: S7 - 8: Roland Garros, Paris (GS)

Preview


Odds On




We have two clear favourites for the title this season, unfortunately only one of them will advance to the quarter-finals. Hercog and Cibulkova are due to face off in round one, Polona has had the edge, beating Domi en route to titles in Rome and Strasbourg but the Amelia Island winner will be keen to ensure she doesn't succumb for a third week in a row. It's been a surprisingly low-key clay season for Henin, but last season's runner-up is always one to watch and loves the big stage, she's the best bet to take advantage of the Hercog-Cibulkova clash.


Solid Bets




I am including Myskina here solely based on her ranking She was a dominant force on clay in the past but seems to have lost some focus, maybe she can channel the ghost of Maria Sanchez Lorenzo and get it back Dementieva has also been quiet but she strikes me as the perfect candidate for a random Slam-winning run and has had some strong results in the past to back her up. Finally Vera gets mention by virtue of being the defending champion and having 4 aces, even though you'd think she had 0 looking at her clay results thus far


Outside Chance




My Prediction

Kiss of death from Dav. Oh well. Nice way to disapprove Dav's prediction ability.

Round of 16




Kirilenko def. Sharapova(1)

5-7 6-3 6-3


Our #1 player put up a stronger fight than last time, but alas, resistance is futile against the legendary Queen and Goddess Emeritus, Empress Superstar MK
