My ideal Roland Garros (with my faves doing well, of course)

Quarterfinals:

Elena Dementieva def. Anastacia Myskina 6-1, 6-2
Venus Williams def. Kim Clijsters 6-4, 1-6, 8-6 (a real heartbreaker)
Serena Williams def. Maria Sharapova 6-1, 4-6, 6-4
Elena Bovina def. Amelie Mauresmo 6-0, 6-7(2), 6-3

Semifinals:

Elena Dementieva def. Venus Williams 6-0, 1-6, 7-5
Serena Williams def. Elena Bovina 6-1, 6-7(7), 6-4

Final:

Elena Dementieva def. Serena Williams 4-6, 7-6(5), 9-7

:devil:


Based on the draw:

Elena Dementieva def. Kim Clijsters 6-1, 2-6, 6-3
Svetlana Kuznetsova def. Amelie Mauresmo 6-4, 6-4

...an Elena/Kuzzie rematch final sounds good with Elena winning 6-4, 5-7, 8-6

Lindsay Davenport or Mary Pierce (cant chose bc Mary already won the whole thing and I 'd like Lindsay to go very far here ) vs María Sanchez Lorenzo :lol: she's the only one I really like in the 2nd quarter :crazy: (or Myskina, or Venus) with Davenport /Pierce in the final

Martinez d Golovin or Martinez thrashing Mauresmo

Final:

Martinez d Davenport (my dream final)
or Martinez getting revenge on Mary Pierce , not bad too ;)

I would also love a Mary Pierce/Venus semi...with Venus coming out on top of course:)

& I want to see Justine/Amelie in the SF (with both playing their best, no nerves, no choking, just the 2 best claycourters battling it out in front of the wild French crowd)

Andy.
May 21st, 2005, 01:50 AM
Top Half: Mary v Venus- Mary winning
Bottom Half: Mauresmo v Masha- Masha winning

To set up a final between my 2 favourite players. What happened next would be up to Masha and Mary

This is who I want to be there, as opposed to who I actually believe will be there, right?!?! ;) OK, so after carfeully studying the draw, here goes:


Quarter finals:

Kim Clijsters vs. Patty Schnyder
Elena Dementieva vs. Fabiola Zuluaga
Maria Vento Kabchi vs. Ana Ivanovic
Conchita Martinez vs. Paola Suarez (had a hard time choosing between Conchita and Vivi, but decided in the end I wouldn't like for Vivi and Paola to play one another! ;) )

Semi Finals:

Patty Schnyder vs. Elena Dementieva
Ana Ivanovic vs. Paola Suarez

Final:

Patty Schnyder vs. Paola Suarez

(OMG! Just realised that was the final I was "predicting" a few days ago, before the draw came out ... last time I did something like that, that worked out when the draw actually came out, was when I predicted an Arantxa vs. Monica final for RG 1998! :eek: Scary! ;) )

I would so much like a Justine-Venus final !!
Venus has the mental edge, and this match might bring out the best of Venus.
And Justine knowing she's able to beat anybody on clay, including Venus, because she's a lot lot better than the previous times when Venus beat her.
I'm sure it would be a great final. (the best to me)
