so if venus doesn't play FO, the champion is wide open?

Or will Serena take it? - not played on clay this year

Henin? - injured

Clijsters - not playing for definite

Think it's a golden opportunity for the likes of Mauresmo, Davenport, and Cap to win it, but could a dark horse could really take it?

If Seles comes back fit and healthy and eager, she could really get through with the help of a nice draw.

But hope venus plays

Justine isn't injured,she suffered from a virus and she's getting better.it will be more a question of:how will she play at the French (if she will) with no matchrythm whatsoever;

Allez.

Serena played at Amelia Island this year. Anyway I dont think lack of clay practice will really hinder her that much seeing she came back from injury and won Miami straight away.

I will say Mauresmo, Davenport or Serena are the conetenders this year if Venus is not 100% or she doesn't play. If Jennifer can get it together against the top players (although she had a nice win over Anastasia) she can also be a threat. If Venus is healthy I would say she and Amelie are the main title contenders given their recent play.

Justine Venus Anna K Elena D Lindsay Lee Mirjana

this all spells SELES loudly...
mauresmo will probably choke again... i think she would thrive under a relatively tough draw with as little recognition as possible. and if a lot of the top players aren't there, she'll be under the microscope, and that's not what she needs.
jen is finally getting it back and could have a nice run..
davenport- i'd be really surprised if she made it past the quarterfinals, but hey, she played so well on the green clay, maybe she could really surprise me and complete her trophy case.
dementieva- can she really win 7 in a row? that's the biggest question. she's capable of big wins surely, but to string a few in a row doesn't look all that promising.
sprem- shining so bright;y now, she needs to hold her level up.

Justine has already started training so she will be back, maybe not 100% but she has won before when she is not 100%, we still have Serena, Lindsay, Amelie, Jennifer and Anastasia. I wouldn't call the championship wide open just because Kim and Venus are out.

This week will decide on how well Serena is playing. With Venus out, I think Lindsay and Jennifer will be the favorites.

Why? JHH hasn't played forever; Kim's out; Mauresmo has mental issues in Paris.

Hmmmm......me thinks Dallas is happy that maybe just maybe Serena won't win.

Anyways, I think it will be between H-H,Serena, and I'm iffy on Mauresmo. Lindsay is not quite the player on red clay. Too bad Venus may be out, I was hoping that she could win the FO. Hopefully she will be ready for Wimby.

But I will make a prediction and say that someone will come through to the finals that is unexpected. They may even win.
