Is Clijsters more likely to win Roland Garros or Wimbledon?

Now that she's won both hard courts slams, which natural surface slam does she have more chance of winning? This isn't about whether she'll win them, but which one she has more chance to do so.

Re: Is Clijsters more likely to win Roland Garros or Wimbledon?

There are far better players than Kim on both surfaces, but I'd have to give it say Roland Garros. Her track record there is better than Wimbledon, and she's come oh-so close to winning it before.

According to William Hill she has twice the RG chances to win the Championship. Makes sense since the French Open is almost a lock for Wozniacki.

Roland Garros. Her loopy swings can be exposed on the courts of the All England Club.

Roland Garros because most of the top players can't play well on clay.

Re: Is Clijsters more likely to win Roland Garros or Wimbledon?

Roland Garros. Her strokes have too much spin and not enough bite to win Wimbledon.

Of course, she has the raw talent to win both but she is far more likely to win Roland Garros. However, her mental forfeiture of being successful on red clay will make it so that she wins neither.

Kim doesn't care about clay and will come to Paris with no matches under her belt. This year, her Wimbledon chances are slightly better.
