Kim or Amelie?
The other top players at least have won slams before. Does anyone else think this will haunt them for a long while.
For Kim although injured, will she curse the injury even more. How is she supposed to deal with the victor knowing she can beat any of the finalists.
If Jen wins it, and Amelie owns her at least of late, that will be a bitter loss.
Lindsay and venus although they have won slams, it has been awhile for them.
Hard to imagine serena feeling too bad esp. when she owns 6 slams the most of any active player bar seles.

Amelie...she was up there, with no injury and with noone left in the draw. Kim knew already she wasn't going to win even before she withdrew, having no preparation.

xactly. Kim's not winning RG was for reasons totally beyond her control, sadly Amelie's wasn't. :sad:

BOTH EQUALLY, but maybe the balance shfts just a bit to Kim. Kim has lost in Grand Slam finals a couple of times and that is worse than losing in the quarterfinals, phsychologically. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think that when you lose in the quarters you have this excuse for yourself that calmsyou down: "who said that I would have won this thing anyway?" Such an approach is impossible in Kim's case.

Totally agree... Kim cant be apset coz she had to be in the tournament to win it. Amelie lost in the QF so she has every right to be upset, coz she was in with a good chance

Well yeah in general...but I thought the question was about this year's Roland Garros :confused:

Don't forget that the events of yesterday don't really apply to Clijsters at all because had she played the French, the draw would have been different, and the quarterfinal matchups would most likely have been different. Mauresmo, otoh, probably feels lousy knowing that she had a chance to finally win her national championship, and blew it by not being aggressive enough.
