Re: WWW: French Open Predictions

I think that Serena will take a completely different approach to Clay season this year , I don't think she is going to lose early again like last year .

It could be interesting to see whether Stosur and Kuznetsova which I think are the best clay court players when at their best could find some sort of form and go deep here. Maria is the favorite though. It depends on the warm up tournaments going into the French.

Azarenka and Radwanska don't have a shot me thinks, Azarenka can be upset by whoever keeps the ball in play, whether Radwanska doesn't have the physical fortitude to go all the way since she'll probably play tons of warm up tournaments prior the the main one.

Re: WWW: French Open Predictions

Li Na if she keeps her current form. If Sveta improves, she has a decent shot. But it's way to early to make predictions

Re: WWW: French Open Predictions

Sharapova, Li, Radwanska or Ivanovic.

Going for any of those four.

Re: WWW: French Open Predictions

For the past two years the Australian open finalist won RG, so Li Na.

Re: WWW: French Open Predictions

Some random player for sure. Maybe Sloane. She is good on clay. Reached 4th round last year.

Re: WWW: French Open Predictions

Sharapova is the best value bet, I hope she isn't favourite as that is easy money right there. The few that could challege her are Stosur, Li Na, and Sveta.

Maria Sharapova
Maria Kirilenko
Sabine Lisiki
Ana Ivanovic

Still miss My best player Elena Dementieva

Same thing happened back in 2008. Ivanovic was finalist at AO and then won RG.

I think this year winner will be someone who already has RG trophy. I can't see any new GS winner at RG. Although I see almost no one believes Sharapova will defend her title, my thoughts are that she has a chance to do that. Serena however, will be very motivated after last season shocking elimination, but I just don't feel she will win, as same as I don't feel Azarenka will be good enough to do it. Li or even Bartoli could surprise some of the top 3 at some point. Obviously, I have big expectations from Ana Ivanovic, and even if you don't believe in her at Grand slams anymore, I still do think her chance will be there, during RG 2013. Petrova seemed as a possible contender but she just lost her game all of a sudden after she fired Ricardo Sanchez. Svetlana Kuznetsova could surprise on clay as usual. I just hope all of them will be healthy and ready to compete.

Re: WWW: French Open Predictions

If Serena's approach to the clay season is the same as last year, concentrating on irrelevant tournaments like Madrid, I will kill her.

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Madrid is red clay though this year, the blue clay was rubbish as an actual warm up event. I would argue Serena's real mistake last year was not playing enough on red clay. She seems to have realised that though because isn't she down for Stuttgart this year? Also generally think this is hard to predict until we see some events.
