Who will dominate the Clay Court Season?

Of course my first pick would be Justine. She is looking good so far this year and is the current Roland Garros Champion. Looking forward to seeing how Sharapova will look on clay this year, she is also looking very good so far. Hope Pierce will make some tourneys. Of course I pick Venus....................What...................Wh o else did you think I was going to pick She doesn't have such bad record on clay and was a Roland Garros Finalist (Serena beat her in the final). Who is your pick and Who are the women known for there clay court game that are currently on the tour?

Venus Williams

Venus better have her hair fixed for the AO I'm just tired of it.

Im hoping Mary can really translate all her clay preparations to the court this year and rack up many points! Of course if Justine if healthy, her success is a given. If Mauresmo stays healthy as well, she will have a superb clay court season. If Venus does well at Miami, I see her doing well on the clay as well, she has always done well on the surface. Other players I think will have success are Dementieva and of course, Clijsters.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

I'm expecting to see some exciting Justine - Amélie finals over the next months.
Besides those two, Petrova, Dementieva and Clijsters could do some damage too.

But real dominance? Don't think so.

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Amelie' is a solid pick. And she is #1. Really excited for her and her fans. Hope she does well on clay this year.

Justine will just like last year. Might not go undefeated on clay but she will win at least two titles. One of them most likely being the French.

Petra Kvitova
Golovin-Dementieva-Likhovtseva-Beltrame-Benešová-Chakvetadze-Szávay-Paszek-Cirstea

If Little Masha can make a Tier II semifinal or a Tier I QF or better, and reach the Round of 16 at Roland Garros, I'll be thrilled!!!

Come on, Little Masha!!!

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
