Unseeded Threats for Roland Garros
Was just wondering who you think are the top 10 unseeded threats to knock out a seed at this year's French Open. My choices would be:
1 Lisicki- Great year, future top 5 player IMO, if injury free, quaters are a realistic goal for her.
2 Hantuchova - v experienced, playing ok, threat to lower seeds but no futher than R4, I think..
3 Dokic - Been quiet of late, but can't ignore someone of her ball stricking ability. Another AO run possible?..
4 Sharapova - A threat just beacause of who she is, but 9 months out, coupled with clay courts don't bode well for a long run..
5 Szavay - Been underperforming for a long time now, but I sense she has her game back on track and wouldn't be surprised to see her do well
6 M J Martinez Sanchez - her ability to mix up the plays could drive more fancied players to distraction. Should be confident too after great run in Rome.
7 Vinci - very solid results on the clay this year. She has experience on her side and is overdue a good Grand Slam run..
8 Safarova - she is very good when in the zone, has the power and seems to be picking her game up of late..
9 A Bondarenko - horrid year, but having good week this week and is so steady on this surface, will be a threat to anyone not at the top of their game.
10 Dulko - Decent year, always a threat on dirt, but lack of power will prevent her taking out any of top 8.
