Road to Roland Garros

So guys, what do you think, what can we expect from Mary these
tournaments before RG? What do you think is Mary's goal?

After her 1/4 final in Indian Well and the way she played in Amelia Island, I was expecting at least one semi-final showing in either Rome or in Berlin. However, with the new injury, I am not confident she will do so well in her preparation for RG. So what I hope for Mary in the next few weeks is to be in good shape and feel good about her tennis.

If she gets to RG in the right physical condition and in the right frame of mind, then I think anything can happen in RG, she could even win it. However if she gets there not fully recovered from the injury and without a lot of confidence in her tennis, then unfortunately we may see an early round exit, which I hope will not be the case.

Mary's injuries are back...this is not a really good sign....hopefully theses are not serious...Mary Has to make something Good in Berlin or Rome if she wants to be a real Dark horse at the French Open...I want her to have fun and play like she did in IW.....

But honestly...
I do really think and feel that Mary is putting too much pressure on her shoulders for this RG.... Mary always said that when she really wants something, sometimes it makes her being nervous.... I'd love to be wrong and I probably will be...but I really hope that Mary do no think that this year is her last chance to win RG....

anyway go Mary you're the best!!!!!!!!!!

Mary Pierce (the only queen)
Venus Williams (the real athlet)
Anna Kournikova (the beauty)
Maria Sharapova (the precious)
Jelena Dokic (the tchiiii girl)
Mirjana Lucic (the rock)
Victoria Azarenka (the alien)
Daniela Hantuchova (the classy style)

I don't want to but I have to agree with you. I'm also afraid that Mary is putting to much pressure on herself. She said that RG was her goal of the year. I mean, she could do so well there but often when there are high expectations on someone, it often turns out the other way.
I just hope Mary will be free from injuries and that she play with alot of happiness in Paris and really enjoy the atmosphere.

RG in not the only Grand Slam tournament. Maybe her favourite but it would be great to win Wimbledon or UO!!!! In don't panic about RG. Mary also shouldn't. She should enjoy her tennis and have fun. I hope she will be seeded ab.20-24 and will have good runs in Berlin and Rome.

Do you know what ranking will give the seed ?

hmm, i mean, when are the seeds decided ? After Rome ?

In french :
J'arrive pas en anglais à dire ! Quel classement compte pr établir les tetes de série à Roland ? Celui d'apres Rome non ?!
En tout cas, Sprem devrait bientot gicler derrière Mary, ce qui la place 26eme mondiale ! Avec le retrait de Capriati, ca met Mary en 25eme position ... Il lui faut donc aussi dépasser Schiavone par exemple, ce qui s'avèrerait très possible, à condition que mary gagne 2 matchs à Berlin, et au moins un a Rome ... il faut évidemment que Francesca ne fasse pas mieux ... C'est méchant mais, qu'elle reste un peu blessée ne serait pas un mal

"I felt very strongly that it was not the right time for me to retire, and there were still some great things for me to accomplish in tennis. So once that really clicked inside of me and I realised that, I just started to work very hard, and to try to be the best that I could possibly be."

I don't think that we have to hope that players ranked before Mary stay injured or not play as good as Mary. Mary should simply play her tennis and win tournaments to improve her ranking...Otherwise Mary will stay in this position and will not improve.
Nobody can say that Mary is able to make the semis in RG. If she can play the semis, she can also win!!!!!!! It only depends on Mary since if you want to win a slam you have to beat the best ones.

Well...for me personally I don't think Mary should prove to anyone about anything...she has achieved so much and has won RG before so...nobody has the right to put pressure on Mary to win the French this year...

Don't get me wrong...I want Mary to win the French open more than anything...I just don't want her to have all the pressure in order to win it....especially with all the injuries coming...like Sebbe has said, she should relax more in her tournaments and focus in order to find the right form again....

Anyway...whatever it is that's coming in Mary's way...i hope it is for the best...!!!
Can't wait to see Mary at the French...go Mary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...Mary Pierce...my queen...forever....


...Daniela Hantuchova...my little angel...


Nadia Petrova...
Lindsay Davenport...
Jennifer Capriati...

Monica Seles...
Amelie Mauresmo...

I don't think Mary will have pressure on her, Amélie will have it like every year, nobody in france believe that Mary still have a chance to win RG again, only Mary's fans are confident.

If Mary wins it, they will tell, oh yes we knew she was abble to do it once again !!! LOL

Mary's injury is not serious, so I'm sure she will be ready for Berlin, Rome, RG...
As usual I believe she will spread her wings above the central court !!!

Im sure Mary will do well at Berlin and Rome if not for the injury she would have done better at Charleston. Im confident she will do well and help her ranking. Good luck Mary stay healthy have fun and do well girl.

Don't worry it's something like a muscular spasm, i'm sure she's fine by now.
