So.... who are we rooting for now Lindsay's not playing??

There is no one like Lindsay, OBVIOUSLY.... but, who's the player you would like to see come out as a winner in RG ??

I personally would love to see Martina FINALLY winning the title, I would love to see her reaction. And if it is not Martina, then Amelie, I think it is time for her to win this title as well. They will both have to remain really tough mentally, but who knows??


what's your pick?

I don't really care for RG, while it's so open this year in means of that noone of the champs played solidly well before...well Nadia is currently the one to watch, but with her draw this time it'll be hard.
I'd love to see Martina, Venus or Masha win but it's unlikely to happen, so I guess, that JHH will get her hands on the trophy again this year.
Russians are strong as always, but I'd pick Safina who's a rising star, Kim has been inconsistent...Mauresmo with all her "psychological issues" etc...

I'd like to see a new champion crowned, so I'm rooting for Petrova/Dementieva...

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

When Lindsay pulled out, my interest in the RG womens went from 0.3 to 0.1.

Tina doing well would be OK, I guess.

There's the mens that'll be a great tournament. Should be fun watching Rafa own again.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Tina is the only decent player I care about on the WTA at this point, except for Lindsay.

It's really sad.

I'm over here at the moment and having a ball, I want to see Amelie take the title ! After that Sveta or Nadia and I really hope Alicia can win a couple of matches. It would also be interesting to see Martina go far with the history she has at the tournament but I really hope it is Amelie, was in Chatrier for her first round match yesterday and the place was rocking if she won it R.G would come down!

yeah Kim is in a *perfect* form :rolleys:
Martina...if it was all up to her magnificent tactics and technique...
well Venus keeps playing better and better with every match she plays, and Masha is going to be ready for Wimbledon, but still, even with lack of match practice she is a contender - for "the sweet 16"

Just to be fair - she didn't blame her bad form on the FFT...She was disappointed, just Like Fedex, that she had to play on sunday...they both asked if they could play their 1st round matches on monday and the organisers said NO. Well, I guess, that if Roger had lost yesterday, he would have been very angry - at least that's what he said in the interview. Returning to Masha - in numerous interviews before the event started, she said, that she's not 100%, she's not prepared as she would like to be, but she is a competitor and she loves the game and that's why she's in Paris - actually that was what everyone saw in the match Vs Mashona. She complained about having to play her first match after a long layoff on the opening day of the tournament just 2 days after she had MRI on her ankle or foot - don't remember.
I don't get it - why are you all so anti-Sharapovish? She's a fighter, she plays agressive atractive to watch tennis and she's quite atractive...Some of her comments remind me of Lindsay's actually
Wait - maybe you are one of those who think she's a "nasty, cold bitch" etc.?
