I guess it's better in happened here than in Paris!
Well the Paris loss will come sooner or later
Definetly this week Berlin`s event will be huge in order to see how the top players are going into Roland Garros. Honestly Conchita is not a top player anymore, although not many people like to face her especially on clay, she`ll be lucky to repeat last year`s quarterfinal effort at Roland Garros.
As for Maria she seems to be doing well lately pretty much since July last year she has had some good wins and reached semis in Acapulco this year if i remmember well.
Good Luck against Denisa!
