Getting to Rome final going through stosur and errani already an achievement considering 'who knew what happened' in Madrid. RG now has a glimpse of hope?
Did anyone realize that she seems to serve slower than she was in Doha.
Glimpse of hope? It is more than that, regardless of the outcome in the Rome final. Vika might lose early, but so could Serena. And against all other players i give Vika a good chance (yes even Sharapova on clay even if it might be hard).
The most fair draw would be Vika and Sharapova in same half. Not that fair has anything to do with the real draw.
