Henin has the worst draw imaginable

Seriously. If the faves all win, her draw just to GET to the final is
3r - Sharapova
4r - Stosur
qf - Serena
sf - Jankovic
What planet is that draw from? You can argue that Henin should win all of those individual matches, but in a row!?!?

Hats off if she runs that guantlet.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: Henin has the worst draw imaginable

If Henin can successfully go through this draw... it would be impressive to say the least!

Re: Henin has the worst draw imaginable

Horrible draw, but in the long run bad luck and good luck seems to level. How many seeded payers did Henin have to defeat on her way to the AO final? Was it one in six matches? EDIT: It was two (Dementieva and Petrova).

You forgot Kleybanova and Wickmayer would've been seeded if she knew she was gonna be able to play that tournament.

Re: Henin has the worst draw imaginable

mmmmmmmmmm isn´t she playing in her best surface???

against the self proclaimed cow on ice, and then Stosur(???) and then Serena, Jankovic is another thing there though, I´d say he only difficult match could come from Jelena (though I hope Sharapova will send her ass packing today)

I don´t think this draw is hard for that woman.

Re: Henin has the worst draw imaginable

If we look all French Open finals after 2005, there is involved just 4 players: 2xHenin, 2xKuznetsova, 2xIvanovic and 2xSafina.
So Henin is actually so privileged that in year of her comeback after long pause all other 3 players which shows ability in near past to play on highest level on clay playing on careers low point this Roland Garros. Also in this circumstances only way for Justine to not playing vs Serena and Jelena both is if this two both are in opposite half of draw with Henin. But playing against this two before final will produce her more easy opponent into final

From my point of view this thread title should to be Sharapova, Stosur and Serena are really unlucky with RG/2010 draw.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Unlike Henin, Sharapova will not face Stosur, Serena and Jankovic
