Re: Is the French Federation trying to manufacter a win
If they are, they're being very pretentious it they're targeting Serena. Henin's got to get through Zakopalova, and then (probably) Sharapova and Stosur before we can even discuss a quarterfinal. Certainly doable, but no gimme. And I seriously doubt postponing a second-round match will affect Serena too much. She has a tendency to rise to the occasion, and by the time the quarters come around, she'll be just fine.
ETA: It's also worth noting that at this point, there's not even a guarantee Henin will get on court today. I'm not too worried at any conspiracy theories in her favor yet.
