wait, you mean Anna K is playing 2 weeks in a row........ :eek:
btw, TBE, r u sure that Lina's injury ranking is not used up yet?
coz last time i check, her ranking is pretty far from TOP 40,
so u wanna check again?....:)

also good luck to the almost neglected Charisa Fernandez......
it's you season, so better start hitting TOP 20 right now,
coz by the time French Open comes around,
you'll probably never get another chance.......

well, Capriati and Pierce 10 yrs ago were different,
back then Jen has won couple of junior slams already
while Pierce, only couple of yrs older, is not acomplished yet,
6-4 7-6 is not a trashing score,
and in 02, was the French Open defendhing Champ,
and Pierce was in jured remember?

Yes, Justine beat Monica in their last two meetings, but Monica should have won at Wimbledon(if those stupid rain delays hadn't ruined her first set momentum and she would have taken advantage of her 4-1 second set lead), and the Dubai tourney she was way up again--and this time on a bum foot! I would hardly put Justine as the favorite if they should meet again, both healthy...

this is one of the best clay court tournaments..but yet the draw seems soo empty...i mean...only Henin, Capriati and Dokic?? thats horrible....

I bet the tournament directors are going crazy trying to convince more top ten players to play///

If they don't im sure we will se a Capriati vs henin final..

the reason i say Monica is the favorite here as shes lost less matches on clay in her entire career (starting 15 years ago) than Jelena lost matches in ONE YEAR

also, shes statistically, the 3rd best clay courter OF ALL TIME

I agree with Rtael. No offense to great tennis champions like Capriati and Seles but Clay is Henin-Hardenne's best surface and I really see her to be the one to take this title. And I really see her winning Rolangd Garros beating both sisters in the event.

KEEP DREAMIN'! Justine better get her mental game together or she is going down! She has a great game, but it falls apart often. Look how Rubin spanked her last week @ the NASDAQ 100.

My prediction goes with Cappy! :D Her attitude has been great, and her recent results after her eye surgery recovery just keep getting better and better! Time for another title!

I personally don't think it's dreaming to think that the second best player on clay last year, second only to Serena Williams, whom she also defeated, can win this title over two players who she both won against on hardcourt earlier in the season at Dubai, not to mention her worst surface is hardcourt. I think a lot of people are underrating Henin-Hardenne's tennis talent as a whole. I think Seles and Capriati are both great players but let's face it, Henin-Hardenne has been improving her game since her Final appearance at Wimbledon in 2000 and since then she has defeated Seles and Capriati more than she lost to them.

And clay IS her best surface and I just don't see her game losing control on her best surface. She will play her best because she has almost 1,000 points to defend during the season, this is motivation enough to spank players in order to win and maintain her ranking. And Chanda Rurbin's win over Henin-Hardenne was pretty bad to Justine, but hardcourt is Justine's worst surface and just a year ago she lost in the first round and now she's a quarter finalist.

Yeah I'm definitely dreaming. Whatever

Allez, Justine!

what? in wimbledon last year's QF, Justine defeated Monica in straight sets. 7-5, 7-6(4). While I agree that Seles is very very good on clay, don't be so quick to dismiss as to what kind of damage Justine can do on the same surface. IN 2001 and 2002 Justine has a 28-8 record on clay, losing only 4 matches each year, so it would be safe to say that injured or not, Monica would need to work hard to defeat Justine on clay. Of course same goes to Justine. I would not undermine the talent of Seles on clay.

yea, monica and justine is kinda a toss up for me, a monica fan. while i think monica places her shots better, hits a little harder with better depth, and is more mentally sound; justine can run and place the ball well. clay is probably their best surface (for both of them), and if they faced, i would give monica the slimmest edge.

I would give the edge to Justine on clay because she would be able to get back even more of Monica's shots and get her on the run. She would need to uses slices, drop shots and lobs to overcome Monica. Also serve well but I do think Justine's game improves more on clay than Monica's does. Still it's a tossup and Monica is very mentally tough.
