I would like for Amelie to win this tournament, but I keep feeling that when they show the bottom half of the draw play, I feel like I am seeing the next champion. That person is Venus, but I think Capriati is the next fav. I think the stars are lined up in a funny way. I could feel it, unless Paola could be the surprise winner. I still hope I am wrong and Amelie wins it all.

Jesus, people, Capriati hasn't been a Slam contender for years now and one win over a listless Serena hasn't changed any of that. I'll be surprised if she gets to the semis, and can definitely see Schiavone beating her.

I'm still going with Amélie for the title, mental state pending.

Just for the form...

Nope. If she gets Venus in the final, I think Venus will win... but then, I think it'll be Serena in the final.

Capriati's form? She lost a set and was 0-3 in the third against Beygelzimer, but Beygelzimer choked. She struggled against Peschke, who ISN'T EVEN RANKED. She lost a set to Bovina. Yeah, that's great form - even Amélie, with her nerves, has looked more impressive.

We're talking about a winner of this tournament, right? and speaking of Venus, she'll have a run for her money against Zuluaga. mark my words.

btw, I bet you didn't see Lena beating Linds either. Masha to be in the quarters.

The further Amelie goes in the tournament the better her chances are.

I was worried about her having the favourite tag in Paris and have watched her early matches very closely and the one against Anabel was a nervous one but she seems to be enjoying herself more than in the past at Roland Garros and she is keeping her head and nerve. If she can do that she can win this.

She will probably never have a better opportunity to be the French Open Champion!!

:lol: If Lena canīt beat a non-moving Lindsay on clay....then tjaa.

Venus may struggle against Fabiola, but Svetlana WILL struggle against Anastasia....

It'll either be Venus or Sharapova.

well i can say this, Mauresmo will make it to the Finals, and she'll be the fresher of the two, seeing that it is going to be a struggle for:
Venus Vs. Serena
Venus Vs. Jen

I just can't see Myskina or Kuznetsova beating Venus at this point.

at this level fitness ainīt gonna be a factor..all mental. Think Momo is gonna be mentally thougher than a Venus or Serena, maybe Jen?!

Uhhhh, Mentally Tougher?...ok:rolleyes:

In that case, based on the Past...the Top half really needs to watch out for Sharapova, she's the only playing with Nothing really to Lose.
She's blasting winners like a Mad Woman, any win through the QF's for her will be Gravy, further cementing her future as the new star of the game. I would not be surprised to see her beat Suarez and take it to Momo.

You guys are forgetting about the Roland Garros crowd being a factor if Momo is in the final. :devil:

I don't think it could affect either Serena or Venus anymore... but could be a factor if any other player makes to the final

yeah, but u just said Venus and Serena and Jennifer are not as Mentally Tough as Mauresmo.

Think Momo is gonna be mentally thougher than a Venus or Serena, maybe Jen?!
I disagree, that's why i feel Sharapova, if she makes it to the Semi's has nothing to Lose.
