Post Name Three Players You Would Bet Your Life Savings On To Win 2012 Roland Garros

imagine you had to name 3 players right now to lift the RG trophy ... if one of them wins you keep your $$$ ... if one of the other 125 players win you are bankrupt

my three players are

1) Serena - the Charleston / Madrid champ
2) NaNa - the Rome finalist, winning more points than the Rome winner and showing flashes of brilliance
3) Vika - the Madrid finalist / world #1

name your 3 players and we'll see who is broke in 3 weeks

I did not pick:

Maria - the Stuttgart / Rome champ - serve looked too vulnerable
Aga - she never even reached SF and the only way she will reach SF is if she draws Bartoli
Sam - first beautiful opponent (Dulko, Kirilenko, Cirstea) will send her crashing
Petra - too inconsistent right now
Venus - not enough fitness to play 7 matches

The only one i'd ever bet my life on at RG would be justine. Since she ain't playing, good luck betting without me.

All-Time-Great

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.

Sharapova is Stuggart/Rome champion, not Charleston.

And for the 3 choices, Serena, Serena, Serena.

Whoa, the shade.

My pick:
1. Masha
2. Sam
3. Head says Serena, heart says Ana/Vee.

I wouldn't pick Petra, Aga, Marion, Vika.


Maria Sharapova, Sam Stosur, Jamie Hampton, Sofia Arvidsson, Mona Barthel, Julia Georges, Ana Ivanovic, Tsvetana Pironkova, Camila Giorgi.
Steffi Graf, Elena Dementieva
