I for one think this year's RG will be very, very interesting because of
the set backs all the usual hard as nails contenders will be facing.
I also feel that there will be more heart and soul this year because
of all the minor setbacks everyone is going thru. The semi finalists will
have gotten to the very last days of RG 2004 on pure emotional determination,
guts, fighting spirt and may just end up winning the GS title on fumes. I
bet the winner will be soooo drained that they may not be able to get up
2 days later.
Justine and Serena are not 100% on match practice or form on clay.
Venus has a minor set back, Amelie is playing into form, Lindsay is up
for it but isn't a pure clay courter,Jen is trying to play info form
and the Russians will either dazzle or have very Pushkin like tragic matches.
