Exclamation Roland Garros Seedings Announced (Golovin Still IN)

Sorry to be the voice of doom, but I don't think either the men's or ladies' top seed will win.

Just two Americans in the top 16 in the men's (Roddick & Blake) and one in the women's (Venus) singles: I can't remember a year when that happened.

Traits Gandhi considered the most spiritually perilous to humanity.
*Wealth without Work * Pleasure without Conscience

*Science without Humanity *Knowledge without Character

*Politics without Principle *Commerce without Morality

*Worship without Sacrifice

just hoping Ivanovic gets Hantuchova in 3r, and Dementieva or Schnyder in 4th, and ofcourse hopisng her injury is 100% over!

Also a hope someone withdraws and Jelena gets a seed spot. But if she doesn't hope she gets a decent draw!

Good luck to Myskina and Srebotnik

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!
