The Ultimate Roland Garros Poll

Who will win it out of these favourites?

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Okay, I'm sorry. I don't know that.
I think Justine Henin-Hardenne can win the FO if she is healthy.

I have always said that Svetlana has the perfect game with her heavy top-spin strokes to win the FO, same for Amelie, but the question is can they keep their head together?

I think it'll be either Justine or Martina

I can't believe it, but I have a hunch - not a real one! - that Nadia might surprise everyone!

Martina won Rome, but it's quite a way from Paris!

Actually Rome is 1447 km from Paris, while Berlin is only 1051.8 km from Paris according to my GPS system . Clijsters would be at 1592 km with her Warsaw win

Line 4 of your poll should look more like this:

Maria Sharapova Patty Schnyder

Anyway, Nadia gets my vote.

2016 Title(s):
Suicide: Strasbourg

Marti. Why not? I think that everything is possible.

My 3 favorite players are: Patty Schnyder ~ Roger Federer ~ Martina Hingis

Other players: Belinda Bencic ~ Kim Clijsters ~ Timea Bacsinszky ~ Elena Dementieva ~ Stefanie Voegele ~ Anna Kournikova ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Vera Zvonareva ~ Daniela Hantuchova ~ Elena Bovina ~ Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova ~ Monica Seles ~ Jennifer Capriati ~ Serena and Venus Williams ~ Klara Koukalova

I didn't want to risk a zillion red dots from Maria-addicts for not including Sharapova
