Roland Garros Champions Showdown: Mary vs. Serena

ESPN is probably kicking themselves about not having full week coverage of Amelia as there are many blockbuster 2nd round matchups to look forward to in the first few days, including Justine vs. Dinara and possibly Martina N vs. Petrova

But there is no doubt that the most anticipated matchup will be RG champ 2003 vs. RG champ 2000. Last time they met Serena won 6-1, 6-1 at RG 2002 but Mary was not fit then and Serena was on her way to winning the first of four Grand Slams in a row.

I really think Mary has a shot with the way she dismantled Meghann and this will be Serena's first match on clay since last year's FO. She has worked on her fitness in Amsterdam over the past 2 months and will be able to bang at the baseline with Serena.

Nike will also be watching this match with interest as its two style queens square off.
I predict Mary wins 7-6, 6-4.


Mary



Serena

Love em both but I really think Mary's going to take this one. Mary's been holding out for clay and I think she's really ready to do some damage here!

mmm well Ashlyer beat Meghan on green clay aswell.
As Serenas just fresh from a title im guessing that her confidence level would be high.
6-2 6-0 Serena.

If Serena can crank up her movement a bit, then I think she has too much for Mary to handle.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

I just hope Mary plays the way she did today! Should be a great match, if Mary is playing well.

Serena. If she doesn't lower the standard of play, which in my opinion is probable.
