French Face-Off ..... by Stephen Tignor
Justine Henin is the two-time defending champion, but all eyes will be on Australian Open Winner SERENA WILLIAMS as Roland Garros begins.
Justine Henin - 2007 Prediction: CHAMPION
She's the best on clay and she bounced back quickly to win in Dubai and Doha after skipping the Australian Open due to marital troubles. The best combination of mover and hitter on tour, Henin blasted her way to the French title without dropping a set in 2006. But her nerves still drain her at the end of majors and a resurgent SERENA WILLIAMS will be looking to avenge her controversial loss to Henin at Roland Garros in 2003.
Serena Williams - 2007 Prediction: Runner-Up
The American is the Ultimate wild card in Paris. She skipped the last two French Opens, but won the title in 2002. As in Australia, she might struggle in the early rounds, but if she builds momentum no one can stop her on any surface. A match with Henin in front of a volatile Paris crowd might be the highligh of the women's season.
