IF either Serena or/and Amelie reaching Rome Final....I think they have a huge chances to WIN

My Bet is

Serena 35% Amelie 35% to WIN

Amélie has the ability but I don't see her having the mental strength
She was playing well last year and she got trashed by Serena in the semis

JUSTINE H-H: 39 WTA-titles and counting...!


Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

It was in the quarters, Serena was the one that lost in the semis.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

I think Mauresmo is currently in the best form, but I too wonder about her mental strenght of playing before the Paris crowd and not to mention the added pressure of possibly being the Number 2 seed. That's a lot of pressure for AM.

As long as the knee is feeling good, Serena will always a contender....remember that since ´98 she has only lost to the winner or has won the tournament herself.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Yep...for sure....her track record at almost all the slams is like that.
´98: lost to ASV, guess who won?
´99: lost to Mary Joe, only one who didn´t win.
´00: didn´t play.
´01: lost to Jen in QF, Jen went on to win it.
´02: winner
´03: lost to Juju in the SF, who won it?! Juju.

Not bad I´d say.
In fact in Serena´s career only Vivi, Elena L, Lindsay D, Martina H, Jennifer and Venus beat Serena at a slam without going on to win the title at any of the slams.

Always bet on black!

So its more like Amelie to be 20% sure for the title.

Correction, Venus beat Serena in 00' Semi's Wimbledon
and went on to win beating Lindsay in the final.
