It's hard to predict before the draw is out, but Elena reached at least the semifinals of the last 3 majors and the Olympics and YEC.
At least the semis in all 5 and no one else reached the semis in more than 3 of those 5.
So I expect her to be at least in the semis

That scream you just heard was me reacting to this jinx thread.

The next scream you hear will be when Elena does her usual job of cutting my heart out of my chest using the butt cap of her Yonex(r) tennis racket.

There was a thread about predicting Lena's 2009 Australian Open performance too. :tape::scared:

Lena has passed her peak and will never win another match.

In all reality, even though she's not really tipped as a big favourite by betting odds, this might actually help her. Unlike Melbourne, she really is going into the French Open just one of the pack. In Melbourne she was tipped by many to be the winner. That pressure is now on Dinara's shoulders.

She has just as much chance to win as any of the top girls. I voted 'Champion' because that's what my :hearts: says. :yeah:

I think she'll make the SF or QF unless she throws in a clunker against someone like Sharapova early on.

Even on a bad day, she's still so consistent in the big events currently. I don't think lower-ranked players will be beating her when she's really pumped up.

Quarters, probably losing to Kuznetsova. :shrug:

With the way Lena is playing, I would be happy with QF.

Why do you have to make another one of these threads? I'm getting annoyed. :( Can't you let elena be low key for once, she might surprise us then... Now it's SF loss as usual...:o

We can plot this on the "Miffed Max Misery Index" as a sort of check mark shaped graph.

There is a relatively high level of misery if Elena loses in the first or second round, which declines slightly in the third round, then bottoms out in the fourth round and quarterfinals* as Elena achieves a certain level of respectability, then shoots way up in the semis as I idiotically and against all evidence to the contrary start to believe the Adorable One might actually win a fucking slam and peaks if she repeats the darkest day in the history of tennis, aka The Final That Must Not Be Named (which I am from now on going to call the TFTMNBN and hope that nobody confuses that with TOB--just watch, somebody will).

*idiotic performances like last year's quarter send the MMMI to near TFTMNBN levels, however.

:lol::rolleyes: You wish.

The only way Lena will possibly face the pusher is in the quarterfinals, and even then it's a longshot.

I believe she can. I know she can't.

What does it matter? What could she possibly do that would make me be a bigger fan?
