Can the French women make it a clean sweep?

Razzano has already taken Tokyo, Parmentier is in the final of Tashkent vs Azarenka, and Tati is in the stuttgart final. Has this ever been done by them (the French) before? Btw Gasquet is also in the final at Tokyo. What a win that would be for France. I'm rooting for Tati!!!! C'mon Tati. Make it 2nd time lucky.

Re: Can the French women make it a clean sweep?

The only player with a good shot of winning tomorrow is Gasquet. I hope Golovin can win as well but I doubt it.

My Favourites: Dancevic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Golovin, Roddick, Sharapova, Stepanek

I think Henin will have more trouble with Golovin than Sveta.

Re: Can the French women make it a clean sweep?

yeah and the funny thing is that any win will now get .0001% press coverage after their rugby side stunned the All Blacks.

Re: Can the French women make it a clean sweep?

Golovin has pushed Henin every time they have played. I don't think she's ready to beat Justine yet. In fact, while on paper this should be a three set affair, I am sensing that Justine is going to deliver a straight set beat down. Tati still seems to have trouble stringing together good performances.

Re: Can the French women make it a clean sweep?

Gasquet lost to Ferrer
As for Golovin, I dont think it's impossible for her to beat Henin, who is not invincible - ask Ms Bartoli !
Parmentier, yeah if I had to bet, I would pick Azarenka to win, she is more experienced. But again, who knows, Parmentier has not dropped a set en route to the final.

Dodin - Andrianjafitrimo - Kuznetsova - Rezai - Razzano - Mladenovic - Cornet - Garcia - Zheng - Hesse

this year Tati took Justine to three sets in her first tournament back.... right after Emilie Loit took her to 3 sets and right before Henin lost to Safarova. It's safe to say she wasn't in her current form.

The first time they played in 2005 was Justine's second tourney back from a long lay off.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
