Which one is the REAL favorite for Roland Garros: SereNa or Sharapova?

Maybe the title.will.go.to.one.of.them, maybe another darkhorse....

But.we all.know what will happen if.those.two.meet.in Paris

They split the most.important clay.titles this.year, but Paris.is.sooo unpredictable

Both have chances, but I expect someone more random to win, someone like Errani, Na Li or Wozniacki. Oh, wait. I mean Errani or Na Li

Neither of them was on red clay, but Serena has bigger chance of losing against some random journeywoman than Sharapova. Maria's only chance of winning RG is to avoid Serena along the way = major draw collapse in her favor. She may beat Li, Radwanska and whoever else, but she's not going past Serena

Maria Sharapova: Mind Over Matter
FITD: Winner - Portoroz '10, Tashkent '11, Istanbul YEC '11; Suicide: Winner - Fes '11, Memphis '12, Nuernberg '13, Sofia TOC '13, Hobart '15, Tianjin '15, Zhuhai ET '15, Tianjin '16, Taiwan '17
TT: Winner - (Singles) Tashkent '12; ITF Macon '16, Stockton '16, Scottsdale '16 (Doubles) - (w/Broseghini) Cuneo 100k '10; (w/Peek-A-Boo) Contrexeville 50k '10; (w/JustPetko) Bucharest 75k '10, Nantes 50k '10, Marbella '11, Washington '11, Linz '11, Istanbul YEC '11, Opole 25K '11, Pattaya City '12, Tashkent '12, Pune 125k '12, Memphis '13, Carlsbad '13, Marrakech '14, Washington '14, Hong Kong 25k '16

Agreed, Maria probably has a better chance of winning the tournament because she won't lose early and Serena could with an off day. However, if Serena and Maria play, Serena will win.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

Re: Which one is the REAL favorite for Roland Garros: SereNa or Sharapova?

Serena is a pretty strong favorite, but there are a few others who could win as well, including Maria. She's probably 2nd favorite, but doesn't have that much of an edge on Vika, Sam and Na, all of whom will have to hope they avoid peak Serena. I'd be surprised (but not shocked) if the winner was not one of these 5.

SereNa Sere na in serbian means shits on. So I guess Serena will shit on WTA once again, and win a title without losing a set unless she meets Petrova on the way
