Kim Clijsters will win the French Open

That's my prediction. I know it's a bit early, but who can stop her? Venus and Serena? Psh. What a joke... Lindsay can't beat her on hard courts, there's no way she can beat her on clay, Jen will be just coming back from surgery if she plays the FO at all. The only people that I think are going to be capable of beating her on clay this year are Myskina and maybe Dementieva. I would add Mauresmo to this list but it's the French Open, so why bother? Hmm...who else? Henin? Nope. Oh, yeah...Sharapova. I don't know how well she will do on the clay, but she might be able to contend with Kim, but I don't think so.

Ummm...if you haven't noticed. NOONE has been able to beat Clijsters in the last three weeks. At least Lindsay gave her a battle. Mauresmo got crushed. Myskina got crushed. Dechy got crushed. Dementieva got crushed twice. We'll see what Sharapova does tommorrow. The only person I think that can beat Clijsters right now is herself and maybe Kuznetsova. Who knows what might happen before the French. Clijsters could burn out.

Man, the clay court season has not even began and you're already jinxing the poor girl. Let her play Warsaw and the Italian open and see how she plays there, then wait for the 1st week of Rolland garros be over and see how shes played by then. Shes got a pretty decent record on clay and can surely play on that stuff, but lets not get carried away, lets hope she does win the French though!

I agree, as much as seeing her win RG would make me so happy after she's been in 2 finals, but let's see how the beginning of the clay season goes. So I won't get too carried away on this one, let's wait and see

JenFan75, you are a joke for thinking that Venus, Serena and Justine won't pose a threat to Kim in Roland Garros. Kim has always owned the rest of the tour but these three have always owned her especially Venus and Serena. That's the main reason for her winning streak she's beating everybody she's supposed to beat. Which makes me very happy as Kim is one of my faves.

It would be nice to see Kim win Roland Garros though. Her recent form should get her far in the tournament but how will her mental state be at that point? I personally have this feeling that Venus is going to take the French Open. She is getting better and better and by the time Roland Garros comes along she should be in blistering form, barring injury.

LOL @ the three you're writing off the most...Serena and Henin have a FO to their collection already Venus had a very good year on clay last year. Kim's my slight favourite for the FO but it's not gonna be easy. Sharapova, Henin, Venus and Serena have the biggest heart and best fighting ability on tour, regardless of the surface.
