Ok this is something we can talk about to get away from all those Oz topics :p

Ok every year the French have like 1-2 surprise semi-finalists ex.Fernandez,Petrova,etc. and this year I am curious to who it will be

I am thinking like Mandula maybe but most likely a clay courter

What do you guys think?

Mandula sounds like a good bet.

if mandula would just stop choking, she'd win a whole lot more.

i tend to agree... but didn't petrova also beat jenn??? and have set point against kim? i mean i don't like petrova at all, but that's seriously the tournament of her life and i don't expect her to repeat it.

So you have the draw! Five months in advance! Please share it with the rest of us! We would LOVE to see it!

Ashley Hackleroad could run a clay season 2 weeks of unstopable tennis.

Harkleroad, Suarez, Ruano-Pascual

yup impressive, but Jen said herself she didnt play well that day,
and Kim beat Nadia 6-1 in the 2nd, i just dont find it as impressive as say,
Dokic's run at Wimbledon when she beat Martina Hingis, or Lucic's run before losing to Steffi
did u even see that ??
Jen played very good and still got her ass kicked.

excuses, excuses.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Sprem. She's played her best game on clay so far!

Yes but she'll probably run into Kim Clicksters or Justine Heckin.

You are correct. (doesn't that put a smile on your little ugly pale face).

What a dumbass thread.

i forgot sharapova... but that wouldn't really be a huge surprise...
sprem would be a big surprise, but i'd like to see it happen.

Yea. the Petrova/Capriati match was one of the best matches in the 2003 Season

agreed, but it would have never happened if monica was anywhere near 80%...

True enough. But you can't go on another player's health. Would Fernandez been a Semi finalist the year before if Clijsters' shoulder wasn't hurting? (2002)

It depends on the draw but my bets for surprises are: Sprem, Kostanic and Mandula.

Elena Dementieva because she never plays well in Grand Slam :woohoo:

On clay, I think this Sprem-girl could do some damage with the right draw.

What´s about experienced players like Martinez, Maleeva or Farina-Elia. All of them wouldn´t suprise me with the right draw; fi.i Maggie has Chanda in her part or Farina-Elia Sprem..

it really depends on the draw, most of the surprise winners has been gifted with lucky draws with the exception of petrova
