http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/namedImage/12781/player_130548.jpg

Myskina is the hot favourite having won two titles and reached one final on clay, she's had some close calls but seems to have the edge, I think she's one of the biggest favourites to win a Slam in a long time. Clijsters has had a disappointing clay season by her standards, her tried and trusted gameplan is no longer effective but she's a two-time winner here, if she won 3 RG titles in a row, she would truly be an ATC legend, finally Alicia has proven she's got some clay-court pedigree this season and is the only player to beat Myskina, so she's definitely in with a chance.

http://ontennis.com/files/image/wta-stars-profile/dominika-cibulkova-stars.jpg

Flavia has grown into a genuine contender in recent weeks and narrowly lost to Myskina in Strasbourg, she's back down to 2 aces, but with a kind draw, could spring a surprise. Domi has been unlucky to draw Myskina for the past two weeks, but she's got a full set of aces and a smart gameplan, I think her breakthrough could come here.
