So, if you were to pick three players to win this year's French Open as if your life depended on it, who would you pick?

To put some twist into it, there are rules. You should make your three picks on the following group of players.
Pick 1 - Top 5 - one player only
Pick 2 - Top 10 - one player outside top 5 but within top 10
Pick 3 - Top 20 - one player outside top 10 but within top 20

If you don't follow the rules, you're dead. Remember to pick as if your life depended on your choice so you should not really rely on personal favorites but those who you logically think will have the best chances.

My picks would be:

1. Top 5 - SERENA
2. Top 10 - LI (I thought about Kerber and Stosur, but will rely on defending champ.)
3. Top 20 - IVANOVIC (Between her and other former winner Schiavone, she had better results recently)

For clarity, the rankings used should be the latest one. See below.

1 Azarenka, Victoria BLR 9020
2 Sharapova, Maria RUS 8390
3 Radwanska, Agnieszka POL 7080
4 Kvitova, Petra CZE 6275
5 Williams, Serena USA 5695
6 Stosur, Samantha AUS 5440
7 Li, Na CHN 4965
8 Bartoli, Marion FRA 4870
9 Wozniacki, Caroline DEN 4586
10 Kerber, Angelique GER 3560
11 Zvonareva, Vera RUS 3440
12 Lisicki, Sabine GER 3012
13 Ivanovic, Ana SRB 2975
14 Schiavone, Francesca ITA 2940
15 Petkovic, Andrea GER 2921
16 Cibulkova, Dominika SVK 2635
17 Kirilenko, Maria RUS 2475
18 Hantuchova, Daniela SVK 2355
19 Vinci, Roberta ITA 2320
20 Pennetta, Flavia ITA 2315
