I think Serena and Justine Henin will do most damage on clay.

Serena is actually going to practise , she said it in her interview this week.
I think the first event Serena enters will be the most important. If she wins that maybe she will be undefeated on clay this season.
I don't really hope she will be undefeated because I want Justine to win Roland Garros.

Hopefully Kim (clay is not her favourite surface) and Seles (if she is healthy she will) will do some damage too.
And Venus and Jennifer are also favourites on clay. Mauresmo too.

Daniela Hantuchova is practicing her clay court slide even as we speak. (On a hardcourt, but at least she's committed.)

of course the regular top 10'ers who are good on clay will all be possible for RG winner, Kim Justine JC, Serena, Venus, Seles....thent here are those dangerous clay court specialists floaters who may pull off upsets, like Majoli, Schnyder and Martinez...but we'll see =D

GO JUSTINE FOR 2003 RG!

monica, of course.
actually, i think jenn's form will continually rise (im seeing a pattern with her), venus will want to prove shes still #2, monica can win if she gets a top8 seed (i also think she will win a big warmup title...a hunch), and im not going to count out the belgians. o, and duh, serena. thats5, so i'll stop there.

amelie's a little too inconsistent, daniela is in the middle of a slump, and i dont think she will pull herself out on the dirt, jelena is FAR too inconsistent but could surprise me, and i dont really see chanda doing much if her first serve stays in the low 80's...
