Possible match-ups at the French Open

The seedings and main draw have been announced for the 2007 French Open, with two-time defending champion Justine Henin leading the women’s field.

Her road to a fourth Roland Garros title will not be easy, especially with the possibility of meeting 2007 Australian Open champion Serena Williams in the quarterfinals.

Maria Sharapova, who is not favored to win on clay in Paris, is in the same quarter of the draw as French long-shot Amelie Mauresmo.

2004 Roland Garros champion Anastasia Myskina is coming back to the Tour in Paris after being out for several months with a foot injury and could face her countrywoman and last year’s finalist Svetlana Kuznetsova in the second round.
