Actually, I think she will do well, but not a title.
Maria on clay is comparable to Davenport on clay (disregarding result, but talking about game), maybe even better at the rate she's been improving on the surface over the past couple years. Maria's footspeed will never be as much a liability as Davenport's.

but yeah it's crazy with the rest admittedly. Poor Venus meeting peak Serena in both AO and RG slam finals, Monica had to compete with Steffi and Henin had too many chances but couldn't take it.

Re: Maria Sharapova will win Roland Garros 2012

Well so far, I think Sam and Masha look like the favourites based on the serving in yesterdays match and the clay run has only begun, I'll see how I rate Petra after today, and I'll see where Rena is after Rome. Obviously Vika is a contender but I feel that her shortened swing on serve will hamper her a little, plus on the RG court Masha and Petra won't be as hampered movement wise as they are here.

Re: Maria Sharapova will win Roland Garros 2012

Someone overstating Maria victory yesterday.

Yes, she fought hard and won.
But let's not forget, going in, Maria was 9-1 against Sam.
Maria serve was better yesterday, but she is still slow off the ground or out of the block
She did improve in sliding/stopping, but still problematic; if not done well, it can put lot strain on your body
Maria also dumps the ball in the middle of the net when she is pulled wide, especially on her FH.


She can probably get to 2nd week, but I don't see her passed round of 16.

Maria even has a better record at RG.

Also, was lindsay ever the favourite for the title? Maria was a lot of people's pick last year and had a real shot.

Re: Maria Sharapova will win Roland Garros 2012

Maria needs to win this NOW. If she fucks up like she did with Miami this year, I'm going to be infuriated like there's no tomorrow. Better get this Career Slam bagged now instead of keeping this endless drag in search of the title going.

She just needs to peak at the right moment. Last year she peaked in Rome and her level nose-dived during RG. If she played vs Li the way she did against Wozniacki in Rome, she would have probably won the whole tournament. But her serve fucked up and she choked a break advantage in the second set, relinquishing her advantage to turn it around. TBH I doubt she'll peak at the right time though, because she's playing even more clay events this year...
