Do you think Clijsters will really win The French Open?

I'm just asking this b/c she does have a history of choking/getting nervous. She won't probably get nervous until the final (if she gets there) But when she makes it, do you really think she'll win? I'm not sure, but I'm just wondering what other people think, will Kim get nervous?

I think it's the best time to grab her 1st GS title. I don't think anyone on tour today would bother her too much on clay and any other surface. Even if she face a better form Justine/Serena, she IMO is the favourite. She can easily reach the SFs/Final.

However, a GS is not a T1 - she will definately get tight and the opponent might just steal it from her. So, she should start seeing a sport phychologist to get herself prepared for the chrunch time.

Justine Henin

Thank you.

the time away has given her all the hunger to win and the maturity to do so

Its best to wait to see how she plays on clay first as she has only played on hardcourt since coming back.

There's no reason why she can't go far - and she can beat the top players in Sharpaova, Davenport and Dementieva - its just a case of a good draw and being able to carry on her good form while holding her nerves.

Definitely! As much as I don't get excited and I don't expect her to win RG this year, I think the past year has helped her mature a lot and I hope this will allow her to go one step further in a GS final ...

I agree with you, since like 3 out of 4 GS finals she's been to were against Justine, she MIGHT get nervous against her, but she might not. Also, even though she hasn't played on clay yet, she's a better mover on the clay (splits! lol) So, this is probably her better surface, she has a VERY GOOD chance at winning.

another question is, won't she burn out before RG with the heavy schedule she has planned: Warsaw, Berlin, Rome, RG
