Lena in Paris

Lena is #26 in the world this week, and will be seeded for the French Open.
Lena won the mixed doubles championship at the last major, the Australian Open.

Yes, and Lena has decided not to play Strasbourg.

As of now, Lena looks to be the 25th seed at Roland Garros... with the only official withdrawal ahead of her is Kim Clijsters.

The different between the 24th and 25th seed is quite significant, so let's see what happens.

If Lena plays well, it might matter. If Lena plays like the Vera match, 24 or 25, it won't matter.

I'm all about the doubles. Dechy again? I know the mixed partner should be Nenad.

Hi.

Singles is of the utmost importance.

Doubles at the majors is where you get paid. Singles for show, doubles for dough.

I'm sorry, but I don't give a damn about Lena's financial status.

I like tennis.

Doubles is tennis too(2). Singles or doubles, you won't get to see Lena on tv.

I saw Lena's US Open Quarterfinal.

If she gets that far again, there's a good chance we'd see her.

ESPN didn't show the all Russian semi in Miami. Lena needs to play Capriati, a Williams, or Davenport.

ESPN has a lot more time to fill. Especially, when their boy Roddick loses early.

And those are the players Lena would likely face in the 4th round or Quarters... so, there is a shot she'll be on TV.

You're still assuming Lena makes the quarters. Let's get through the first two rounds.

I'm trying to be positive like the Masha fans.

Maybe it will work.

The Masha fans stare at the pictures. Try that.
