Top contenders now are, Jankovic, Ivanovic, and Sharapova, but think sharapova has a few more years before she takes this one. Either Zvonareva or Safina will knock her out. So who wins it????

Right now the 3 most likely contenders from the top half are Kuznetsova, Dementieva and Safina, and I wouldn't completely rule out Azarenka. From the top half it is almost sure to be either Jankovic, Ivanovic or Radwanska. Out of that lot my pick is.....Safina.

And no offence but looking at both Sharapova's form and Safina's form, I don't see any possibility at all for Sharapova getting to the quarterfinals.

DAVAJ MKirilenko

Ana has a 5-1 score against Jelena and Sveta. Never lost on clay against them. I more fear for Dementieva or Safina. But that's only final talking :p

I find one interesting oppinion.
Since RG started at official WTA site existing Poll about RG winner and current results is:

Who is the favorite to win Roland Garros? (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/surveyresults.asp?ERMsg=)

Sharapova 19%
Ivanovic 25%
Jankovic 15%
Kuznetsova 4%
Serena 22%
Venus 3%
Other 11%

Total votes - 3334

to me, ivanovic has become the favourite. not because the williams sisters are out, but because she showed the most convincing performances so far in this tournament.
but i'm hoping for sveta to rise and shine.

but i do agree that Sharapova shouldn't get many votes..because she has been sucking a lot in RG so far

venus losing has little impact on the eventual winner because she wasn't one of the top contenders to begin with...serena's loss, on the other hand, does open things up a bit as i believed her to be one of the favorites, especially in light of justine's sudden retirement.

at the beginning of the tournament, i thought the winner would be one out of: serena, jelena, ana or sveta. however, with maria's biggest nemesis (serena) now out of the way, her chances have greatly improved.

I'm really really hoping for Kuznetsova. For all the wrong reasons of course...she's a bit of a plain jane but she's a US Open Champion. ESPN would be forced to consider her in the same conversation as Sharapova and the Williamses sisters. Of course they do a good job of ignoring Amelie but she isn't helping things either. After that I'd like to see Ivanovic for the same reason...or Dementieva just so they have to give her matches more air time.

For Wimbledon if Venus doesn't repeat then I'd like to see Kuznetsova do the double...it'd be just plain perfect.

I would like to see Kuznetsova or one of the Serbs win this now, if I had to choose one though that I actually thought was going to win... I think the final might be the same as the Australian: Maria vs. Ana, but with Ana winning this time.

May 31st, 2008, 09:01 AM
This is just so depressing. It seems that everyone is doing their best to give the title to Miss Sharapova as all her main rivals fall by the wayside and her opponents can't get those extra few points to ko her.

It will be a disaster if she wins this title. She has nowhere near the talent of those who ha-ve won the career Grand Slam - just incredibly lucky in a weak era.

It would be nice to thisk Ivanovic or Jankovic could hold strong but they're off form lately, even though Jelena did win in Rome.

Maybe, just maybe it's time for Dementieva to make a breakthrough. I can also see Petrova beating Kuznetsova.

I have the most horrible feeling about this tournament.

Agreed. I don´t want her to win, but the draw has opened up nicely for her. Looks like Ivanovic vs. the winner of Jankovic/Radwanska in the semis. The other half is wide open. I could see almost every seed make it to the semis.

What???

You might be wrong about every last thing you said.

Every single one of the contenders is still in it, besides Serena. Most of them are playing well also. If anything, they are doing their best NOT to give it to her.

In terms of overall talent this is the strongest era ever. I don't even think it is close. The only argument is how strong those at the very top are versus previous champions.

She is unquestionably not incredibly lucky. Every slam she has won she has beat the best players in the game, often handily. And considering she has lapped everyone under 25 several times over, she has have some degree of talent.

And then, just for fun, you finish off by predicting Petrova to beat Kuznetsova.

Truly an impressive effort.
