Ana Ivanovic is our new French Open winner and now let us predict how she would do in the next slam.:)

For your information,she has played FO-Wimby together 3 times before.
2005: QF; 3R
2006: 3R; 4R
2007: F; SF
2008: W; ??

Now this is how the Roland Garros champion fared in Wimbledon on the same year for the past 2 decades:

Year : FO Winner - Wimbledon result
1988 : Steffi Graf - W (PB x1)
1989 : Arantxa Sanchez Vicario - QF

1995 : Steffi Graf - W (PB x3)
1996 : Steffi Graf - W (PB x4)
1997 : Iva Majoli - QF (PB)
1998 : Arantxa Sanchez Vicario - QF
1999 : Steffi Graf - F
2000 : Mary Pierce - 2R
2001 : Jennifer Capriati - SF (PB)
2002 : Serena Williams - W (PB)
2003 : Justine Henin - SF
2004 : Anastasia Myskina - 3R
2005 : Justine Henin - 1R (PW)
2006 : Justine Henin - F (PB)
2007 : Justine Henin - SF

depends on the draw. But one thing is for sure: she won't win Wimbledon. She's not that good to win 2 consecutive slams :)

Other than Mary Pierce. Anastasia Myskina and (ahem) Justine Henin in 2005, the RG winners have done pretty good on grass.

And coupled with Ana's performance in Wimbledon for the last 3 years (3rd - 4th - SF), I predict she can go all the way to the final this year... but might not win the title.

I don't see her losing before the 4th round, I voted SF. A 1st round loss is just wishful thinking...

She'll get to the 2nd week for sure, but I don't think she'll win.

depends on who's in her draw. expect to see a williams and sharapova in the semi's for sure, so depends on that, because she won't beat either serena or venus or maria on grass.
