Can Sharapova win Roland Garros 2010?

Now I know all Sharapova fans (including me) believe she can win the French Open - not only because she's a fighter and can beat anyone on her day - but also because of this mysterious Grand Slam pattern that has come to pass... Wimbledon 04, US Open 06, Australian Open 08.... Roland Garros 2010?

But, seriously, can she win it next year?

If she gets an easy draw. There are soo many better clay-courters than her on tour though.

If she gets a Wickmayer draw to the final where she plays Petrova.

Re: Can Sharapova win Roland Garros 2010?

No way!
and that would be very sad for tennis

Her clay game and movement are awful
Her QF or SF happened only because she's a good fighter, NOT because of her game

and I don't say that because I don't like her!

It's like asking if Coetzer could win Wimbledon

Re: Can Sharapova win Roland Garros 2010?

She'll need the best draw ever

it doesn't look good that she hasn't reached a final at any red clay event yet I'm pretty sure she has reached no more than 5 sfs on red clay in her career...once she runs into a player who can run down her shots for an entire match, she's usually unable to hit through them. Safina did it 2X to her at RG and she's not even the fastest player on tour.

Re: Can Sharapova win Roland Garros 2010?

With her awful serve, she was in QF this year. So who knows?
And she was close to beat Safina in 2008, who is 2 time RG finalist...

With her awful serve, she reached only the second round at Wimbledon where she won in 2004 and grass is her best surface, according to her and most of her fans.

I don't think serve is a major factor for clay, you have much better odds to win on clay than on another surface with a pathetic serve.

If she constantly fights, then yes.
Besides she has to, otherwise the pretty pattern will be ruined.

Re: Can Sharapova win Roland Garros 2010?

She can't beat ANYONE on clay. I think that's one of a multitude of reasons why she can't.

At her most mobile in '05/06, she was still woefully exposed on the surface. Particularly against Justine, where she looked so out of her depth, unable to offer token resistance really.

No. I really doubt her fans would say this. Maybe a couple years ago
