S2 Week 15, Roland Garros, FRA, GS

ROLAND GARROS






Defending Champion : Nicole Vaidisova




Welcome to Roland Garros for the season's second Grand Slam. Vaidisova is defending champion here, and she will have a huge struggle on her hands to defend her title, after her recent on-court struggles, as well as the ever-increasing depth on the OWTT Tour.


THE FAVOURITES




#1 Serena Williams - she just won the title in Strasbourg and is the current race leader too. SHe is the one to beat here in Paris.




#6 Alize Cornet - she has had a fantastic season so far, and won the Australian Open at the tart of the season. SF in Berlin and QFs in Rome & Strasbourg should stand her in good stead, as well as being boosted by the French crowd.




#9 Dinara Safina - has had a career-best last few weeks, reaching 2 SFs as well as the final in Rome. Her confidence is high and if she believes in herself, she can definitely go all the way.



THE CONTENDERS




#12 Tatiana Golovin - she has won 2 titles this season, including a claycourt title in Rome. She can produce some great tennis, and will have the support of the home crowd.




#17 Daniela Hantuchova - she has really come into her own recently, and is playing some top tennis. She won the title in Charleston, as well a QF in Strasbourg.




#21 Jill Craybas - won the title in Rome and can really bring it against the top players.



DARK HORSES




#7 Anna Kournikova - SF in Strasbourg, and has the potential to go all the way here in Paris.




#8 Gisela Dulko - consistent clay season with QFs in Charleston, Rome & Strasbourg. Has the game to go all the way if she believes in herself.




#10 Svetlana Kuznetsova - Finalist in Charleston. Kuzy has cracked the Top 10 this season and her confidence is high.




#11 Lindsay Davenport - QF in Charleston, and coming off a RU finish in Strasbourg. When her game is on, she is so tough to beat.

Re: S2 Week 15, Roland Garros, FRA, GS

I better not lose beofre QF or I kill myself I'll say it out loud, even if Sveta and Gisela are big threats the top quarter is the easieast one Serena could hope for, but top seeds in Slams usually suck

Re: S2 Week 15, Roland Garros, FRA, GS

I'd like to give this game a try. I don't know if I can get into RG or not, but if so I'd like to be either Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario or Francesca Schiavone.
