Watch out for Flavo Pennetta on clay

Maybe I should mention Conchita Martinez too? Will she made semifinals or better at Rome? How much she desperate to win a Slam title at Roland Garros?

at the beggining of this season you has sharapova and golovin.
now - ivanovic, na li, vaidisova, chakvatadze, kirilenko and more have burst upwards like it was predicted last year - so the season's promising players are alerady demonstrating thier power, in that area, the season is running REALLY fast.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

hope conchita can bring out her bag of tricks this season

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

Flavia Pennetta is the best clay-court player so far this year on tour.....she has not lost a match on it. I wouldn't be surprised if she picks most of the smaller Tier clay court events.

And since this is CLAY, I have high hopes for Sesil !

I really wish she could get her act on clay, I believe that on the new crop of players, she is the best on clay and her games suits it best than all the young (power) players.

C'mon Sesil kick some butt and let them sit on the dirt!
