Since Steffi in 99, No player has won Roland Garros without...

...holding a title the same year.


Here are the past champions and the last tournament they were holding before winning Roland Garros.

Code:
2011	Na Li	        Sydney '11
2010	Schiavone	Barcelona '10
2009	Svetlana	Stuttgart '09
2008	Ivanovic	Indian Wells '08
2007	Justine	        Warsaw '07
2006	Justine	        Dubai '06
2005	Justine	        Berlin '05
2004	Myskina	        Doha '04
2003	Justine	        Berlin '03
2002	Serena	        Rome '02
2001	JCapriati       Charleston '01
2000	Mary Pierce	Hilton Head '00
So Schiavone win wasn't as random as some of us thought

This means Kanepi and Errani are serious contenders for the title now

Of course this doesn't apply to Australian Open. In 2008 Wimbledon was Venus first title of the season. Same for Kim and Sam at USO 2009 and 2011 respectively.

Petra, Caro, Na Li, Stosur good luck next year

Official List of contenders:

Kaia Kanepi
Jie Zheng
Victoria Azarenka
Mona Barthel
Angelique Kerber
Daniela Hantuchova
Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino
Sofia Arvidsson
Agnieszka Radwanska

Timea Babos
Sara Errani
Su-Wei Hsieh
Serena Williams
Maria Sharapova

Kiki Bertens
Francesca Schiavone

that means Jie, Babos and the Spanish that won Bogota may win RG 2012

and is it also true that the winners only won ONE title before Roland Garros? that would mean Vika and Aga cannot win RG 2012

No I'm sure that Justine won many titles each season before RG. I'm sure others as well.

Re: Since Steffi in 99, No player has won Roland Garros without...

The more interesting question is: which match from RG 2011 will be reversed in the final?

RG 2008: Safina bt Kuznetsova in SF; RG 2009: Kuznetsova bt Safina in F
RG 2009: Stosur bt Schiavone in R1; RG 2010: Schiavone bt Stosur in F
RG 2010: Schiavone bt Li in R3; RG 2011: Li bt Schiavone in F

Radwanska bt Sharpie? JJ bt Schiavone ? Kvitty bt Li?

Does this mean Stosur has no chance because Dulko will never make the final?

that is an interesting stat

I think the most likely will be Vika d Na

TF will go down for days if it is Caro d Dani, Aga d Maria

Maria-Aga wont happen for sure other 2 can easily, they are in same section, but not sure if they are relevant enough this year.
