toughish draw, the first few rounds look ok. but 4th round onwards will be tough, possible 4th round clash with serena. i'd still give safina a chance in that match given that clay is serena's weakest surface. a good early draw though.

Has she entered the doubles event?

Shahar Peer (ISR)[11]/Dinara Safina (RUS)[11] vs. Flavia Pennetta (ITA)/Roberta Vinci (ITA)

They Should win in the 1st round match :)

A good win for Dinara in the singles, I hope she can keep it up against Schiavone.

I went to Roland Garros yesterday, and got to see some of Dinara's match! she played amazing at the end! some top balls, and great fighting spirit!
I took a picture but it's not good quality, and my dad took one with his mobil phone, terrible quality again, but I'm gonna post them anyway!

Dinara looked very nervous today and didn't play her best really, although she showed some good fight at the start of the 2nd set.

Her poor movement was exposed though, that has to be something for her to work on.

I'm watching the 2nd set, and there is a big difference in movement.
Dinara is much better when she doesn't have to move much
