If Justine Wins AI, Is She The Top Threat At Roland Garros?

(Obviously Venus & Serena are defending finalists), but Justine's having a great (so far) year on clay. Any thoughts?

An all Belgian final?

Iwouldn't put the pressure on Justine, remember what happened to Amelie when she won a couple of clay tournaments leading to the French a couple of years ago.

what the hell are you talking about,
Venus and Serena better pull out of Roland Garros,
they will beat Justine when Hell freezes over,
(that means never, just so you know....)

There is a difference between green clay and red clay right?

Yes,

On Red Clay Justine is even better (Like a bull on a red carpet)
Remember Berlin and Rome last year.

all Belgian? we haven't even seen kim on the clay yet.

Anyway, again not taking anything away from Justines win, but in that first set, Serena up 3-0, when you loose 23 out of 26 points and hit 19 errors, i think more so, that had a lot to do with Serena than justine.

But last year, Justine was the threat going in, her and Serena, and venus also. I think the same thing can be said this year, but Kim? Not at all. Justine played two clay tournies, and so far 2 straight semis. Serena i think will do the same thing, and I think Venus will do well on the clay as well. She and Serena just played awesome on the Clay last year, Venus 2 finals, and serena aquarter and 3 finals 2 of them wins.

Justine, Serena, Linday right now, from the first 2 tournies we have seen, are the favorites for now.

I think we will add Venus and like Ameile by after Rome

But Kim, nope, i don't think she will do well, my personal opinion

on red clay, everyone is better, justine has said she likes the red more than the green (green is faster) and serena has also said this

I think it's funny that you want to mock Justine after she kicked your favorite's ass Seles. Talk about a fucking sore loser

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

Justine is streaky. What is the point of projecting all these fabulous wins for her because she won one big match? It's futile. Just remember Anika Kapros

Justine, Serena and Lindsay look deadly on green clay. I'd say those are the ones to watch for RG.

We haven't seen Venus or Kim yet so I'll reserve judgement and I don't want to look biased since they are my faves.

Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

She is a big threat, but not the big threat.

I would pick her second favorite, same as last year, behind the same person, who would win it, and then three more majors in a row. But I'm biased.

Even if she doesnt win this tourney, she is still a big threat...her game is perfectly suited for the clay and her movement makes a major threat

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.
