Well, we could use a single thread for the entire year (and at least judging by the results it's working well; fan participation not so much...) but it is a slam and therefore deserves a new one I think.
Good draw for the first round and decent for the next two (as she's not in the top 16 [yet ], she had to draw a seed 1-16 in the 3rd, and couldn't have gotten much better than Bartoli on clay, even regardless of their H2H), but it's stops there. R4 won't be bad I guess...

NLV struggled against Woerle 7-6(3) 7-5, so Shahar should come focused and win in straights.
Shahar lost to her in their only meeting in a MM clay tournament in what was one of the low points of the awful 2008 season. She surely remembers that and will come out extra motivated. I sense a blowout.
