She gets some random Russian Qualifier chick in R1 who isn't a clay specialist. Win 63 63.
She then goes on to face Edina Gallovits Hall. Which we know is a 62 64.
Then she goes into R3 having to face Arantxa Rus (who took out Goerges ranked #17 for a second time in RG) Win. 75 61
4th round much more difficult. She gets Kerber (who is still struggling with back issues). Win 26 64 62.
QF will also be tough. She gets Sharapova who moos her way on the clay to a loss to Jeca. Win 36 63 75.
SF against Serena will be the biggest challenge. Oh? What's this? JELENA TAKES ADVANTAGE AND BRINGS OUT HER ROME 2011 GOAT FORM TO WIN IN STRAIGHTS. 76 76.
In the Finals she faces an in form Azarenka who has found form on clay. After a tough tight first set tiebreaker win 76(5), she does the usual WTA flop and loses set #2 61. After coming back from 2-4 15-40 down, Jelena regains her place at the top of the WTA with a 76 16 64 win and gets her first Slam.
She retires at the end of the year (after also winning another title, this time it being MM Osaka) and enjoys life in her new mansion in Carlsbad, California. Then we get married and I will polish her RG trophy every day until the end of time as we know it.
That sounds shockingly accurate and plausible
