Can Sharapova win this year's French Open?

She beats one of the best clay court players and she is now very hungry for this title,on the other hand,no player now is in a so solid form and can say she would surely beat Sharapova,so,I think Sharapova has a very very good chance to win here,what do you think?

Re: Can Sharapova win this year's French Open?

I love Maria, but she has little to no chance of winning the French. It's her worst surface AND she's just coming back.

Good win over Petrova though

Re: Can Sharapova win this year's French Open?

In her section the high seed is Li, who's never had a great major.
It looks like she can make the QF and if she's healthy there's no one playing Henin type clay tennis here.
So it's not impossible.
But the USO and 2009 AO are more likely if she stays healthy

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Can Sharapova win this year's French Open?

I doubt she wanted to do much more here than get some matches under her belt and shake off some rust before grass court season.

But if she wins a couple more she will start thinking about it, and you know she will compete as hard as anyone. You can't rule it out, but it would be a longshot.

She will be lucky to make the quarters. This is her worst surface. If it happens it will be a great day for Maria and a day of shame for the entire WTA tour.

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: Can Sharapova win this year's French Open?

I have this big feeling that she's going to play Dinara in the semi's, and the winner of that will take it all. Just a feeling...

Halep Kvitova Venus
Shvedova Babos
Lucic Konjuh

Re: Can Sharapova win this year's French Open?

On paper it's unlikely. But you never know. I think Maria will have a great showing at this FO, she might make it as far as the quaters or the semi-finals. I don't think she has the form to beat someone like Safina just yet...but I hope I'm wrong.
