Question Outside of your favorite who would you like to see take home the Roland Garros trophy

My top 3 picks outside of my favorite's(Venus and Serena) that I would like to see win RG are as follows:

In no particular order and why:

1.Henin-Well since she first started playing she has always wanted to win this slam. I mean come on, how can you not one day be glad to see her win RG? The story of her being a little girl and telling her mom, that she would one day win on the red clay is endearing. I want her to win one for her mother. She has the game for it.. could this be her year?

2.Rubin-She is a great person who has put in the hard work. She has the court savy to win here. If anyone deserves it it is Chanda! Imho this is the slam that Chanda can very well take on home. It would be so sweet to see her holding up the trophy, smiling away. Without a doubt a kodak moment and a VCR tape for the future.

3.Amelie-She is French, she is a clay courter. She really wants to win here. She has the court savy to win RG and the crowd would be thrilled. I mean who wouldn't want Momo to win her first slam at home. In front of the crowds. It's been awhile since a French women has won it at home. (I'm not countin Mary Pierce). Momo deserves to win a slam in France, she is a hard worker, has overcome her mental mindset and nerves. Could this be her year?


In short I think it would be nice for Chanda to have a slam under her belt, she's not getting any younger, Justine's win woud be tearful, because of her mother and the story that surrounds it. Amelie would finally win one for France.

My favourtie is Justine...

Who I would want to see win it besides her....

NO ONE! no j/k

Uhm...
#1 would be Monica, cause it would be great to win one more slam in her career and after this year I think she will have 0% chance of ever winning a slam again

I can't really think of nayone else I'd pick for this...maybe conchita martinez?

Kim Clijsters because she is the slamless person who was the closest at winning one, it would be tragic if she never did.

I have so many favourites, it's hard to come up with a list. But if I limited my favourites to just Venus and Serena, then I'd want:

1. Monica
2. Kim
3. DINARA!!!

conchita's my favourite, so i'll go for lindsay davenport

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

1. Seles (a QF would be nice)
2. Alicia (I'll be happy if she makes the 3rd Round or better)
3. Jelena (a QF or SF would be awesome )
