Wink Prediction game: Who will win the Wooden Spoon Award for being the worst player?

Who will be the worst player of Roland Garros 2005?
This player will be the only one to lose in the 1st round against someone who then loses in the 2nd round against someone who then loses in the 3rd round ... and so on until the final.

Example: Tiffany Welford, winner of the 2005 Australian Open Wooden Spoon Award. She really deserved the title because losing against an almost-retired Schett is a pretty good achievement.

1st round: Schett def. Welford
2nd round: Hantuchova def. Schett
3rd round: Dementieva def. Hantuchova
4th round: Schnyder def. Dementieva
QF: Dechy def. Schnyder
SF: Davenport def. Dechy
F: S. Williams def. Davenport

And here are the winners of the last 5 French Opens:

RG 2004: Mara Santangelo
RG 2003: Bahia Mouhtassine
RG 2002: Stephanie Foretz
RG 2001: Lisa Raymond
RG 2000: Barbara Schwartz

So who will be the lucky one here? Have a look at the draw and pick your fave!

Tanasugarn

I cheer for Williams x 2, Pierce, Patty, Nastya and Kim

I miss Sandrine, Monica, Iva & Joanette

I miss Pinky and the Brain. I want Anna K back so she and Hingis can get in more cat fights like the old days.

Tati Panova's lookin' good for the title. Ever since she was belted 2 years ago to 47yo Martina Navratilova, I knew she had the skill level to win this coveted award!
R1 Fernandez def Panova
R2 Razzano def Fernandez
R3 Davenport def Razzano

Dinara Safina- Super Slugger
Fernando Verdasco- Rafael who?
