Who do think will win the French Open?

What's your guess, or your wish?

I'd like very much Cara and Liezel to win, but that's clay so ....

So I'd go more for a surprise team like last year.

What about you?

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: Who do think will win the French Open?

Kata has a new doubles partner I voted Kata and Suji

Anyway, I´m pretty sure they will lose in SF or QF

Ooops! I can't find how to change it in the poll options, so Sugi will remain Suji!

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: Who do think will win the French Open?

I think the FO are maybe the most exciting Grand Slam in dubs because clay seems to be the worst surface of a lot of teams (Black/Huber, Peschke/Stubbs, Chan/Chuang,...)
So there might be outsiders just like Molik/Santangelo last year...
From top teams I think Sugi/Srebotnik are the favourites!

Re: Who do think will win the French Open?

Has Raymond confirmed that she'll play with Stosur?

I hope the Bondarenkos win it.

Re: Who do think will win the French Open?

Doubles is more open than singles, so any team could come along and win it (like the Bondarenkos at the Australian Open). I voted Srebotnik/Sugiyama because they are playing well right now and I think they really want a slam (they've been RU twice in slams). Plus, of all the top teams, they are probably most comfortable on clay since they have better groundstrokes.

Re: Who do think will win the French Open?

I think Cara Black and Liezel Huber !!!
Clay isn't their preferred surface but they are beating and i'm sure they will make all for win

Others teams like Srebotnik /Sugiyama, Chan and Chuang are very good teams and may claim at the title !!

Re: Who do think will win the French Open?

No,I can't find any team a real favorite except Ai and Kata.They've been just consistently producing great results.From all the options above,I'd pick them to most likely take a step further this time.

But I realy hope Chan/Chuang to have a good run here. Actually they were not worse than Ai/Kata at slams in 2007.(RU/QF/R16/RU for Chan/Chuang;-/RU/RU/QF for Srebotnik/Sugiyama.) They'll need that confidence going into Beijing.

Melbourne.

Re: Who do think will win the French Open?

just depends on the draw, those dangerous top WS players' teams like danni/lindsay and williams' sisters can bring a lot of trouble to the current top teams

Golden Flowers' Slams


Asian GOAT Na Li(2): 2011 & 2014
Doubles specialist Shuai Peng(2): 2013 & 2014
Retirement Village: Zi(2), Jie(2) & Tiantian(1 + 1 OG Gold)
