Not an Hingisafrilia in the first round? I've lost to her twice this year :sad: And if Anastassia qualifies, she is in the same quarter has my other player :sad:

Larissa Liashenko predicts this year's French Open


By: Larissa Liashenko

Qualifying

I see Anne-Laure Vandelion, Carolina Spencer, Katerina Shawfink, Arantxa Danese, Anastassia Lobacheva, Marta Bajul, Elke Vandecaetsbeek and Berta Calpena has the qualifier. Some qualifying sections are really strong but some others are so weak! It's the luck of the draw, I guess.

First Section

Larisa Ferrer has the easiest draw she could ask for until the quarter-finals. I see no one that could beat her before that. I expect to see her play Morkovina in the round of 16. I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't lose a set until the quarters. Really a dream draw for the number one player!


Second Section

A really tricky section in my opinion! A lot of good claycourters are there. I think we will see a Gonzalez-Taliamanosoko round of 16 match to determine who'll have the ''chance'' to play Ferrer.


Third Section

I'd love to see Selima do well here but I don't think she'll get past Seles. She is too consistant for Selima at the moment because she's been out for so long. Gianna should win that section pretty easily.


Fourt Section

Monica Gambill has been on fire lately. But has she peaked to soon? We will see that here. With the way she is playing, I don't see why she couldn't make the quarters but will pressure get to her? We'll have to wait and see but she is the clear favourite to win that section.


Fifth Section

Angelica will have to be really, really careful. She has a very tough and tricky first round match with junior number one and junior french open favourite Lapentti. There are also Majlana and Sarile who could give her some problems but Angelica has played so well on clay this year that I don't see her lose that early.


Sixth Section

If Jane wanted to do well, she couldn't ask for a better draw. The only person that should challenge her is consistant Van Haak. But with Jane, you never know. Sanchez-Connely could take her out too. But if Jane is on her game, watch out!


Seventh Section

I have three people I think could win that section. First there is Anabel ''the zombie(couldn't resist ;) )'' Conde-Martinez that could go deep in the draw if she gets by early trouble. The Lucia or Zerene could do damage. But I see Anabel getting throught.


Eighth Section

The two top players in that section, Kroulikova and Huubere are not at their best right now on clay. And I don't know the physical condition of Anna but if she is not 100%, she has no shot at beating surprising Hingisafrilia. This is the section that I see the biggest upset. I think Nicoletta Lapentti, who seems to have found her game recently, will win that section.


Quarter-Final predictions

Larisa Ferrer vs. Adriana Gonzalez
Gianna Adrianna Dulko vs. Monica Gambill

Angelica de la Courtiere vs. Jane Wong
Anabel Conde-Martinez vs. Nicoletta Lapentti


Semi-Final predictions

Larisa Ferrer vs. Monica Gambill
Angelica de la Courtiere vs. Anabel Conde-Martinez

Kimiko Date prediction

[1]Larisa Ferrer vs. Qualifier #2
Qualifier #8 vs. [28]Sophia Sabatini
[23]Caroline Menard vs. Rosie Ribbons
Doryssia Morkovina vs. [15]Karla Herrera

Larisa Ferrer will get through this draw with no problem. Herrera would have been tough but she is in a bit of a slump lately after a spectacular start of the year.

[9]Adriana Gonzalez vs. Katarina Krivencheva-Molik
Qualifier #3 vs. [20]Madonika-Diva Jahfson
[30]Rachel Spears vs. Ana-Maria Herrera
Qualifier #4 vs. [5]Ruflina Taliamanosoko

A dangerous side of the draw, Ruflina last year finalist of course can go far, but has not been consistently recently, however Adriana and Madonika may have a thing to say about that.


[7]WC Selima Valentine vs. Qualifier #1
Mia-Ling Keller vs. [31]Joanna Seles
[18]Sabine Graf vs. Nina Strycovsson
WC Emilie Joubert vs. [10]Gianna-Adrianna Dulko

A welcome return for Selima, but she will have a rough time, especially facing red hot Gianna Dulko. I see Gianna getting through

[16]Monica Gambill vs. WC Amanda Poirot
Yadira Mendivil vs. [19]Gisele Noventz
[29]Caroline Whitten vs. Syria Gonzalez
Qualifier #7 vs. [4]Eva Sorrenta

Monica Gambill is the favourite in here, Eva do not like clay, but she like big events and I will nto be surprise if she get through. Caroline Whitten of course can surprise in here.

[3]Anjelica de la Courtiere vs. Juliana Lapentti
Sandy Vicario vs. [27]Mazuelena Majlana
[24]Paula Masterton vs. Mirjana Huubere
Elizabeth Hawkins vs. [11]Lindsay-Anne Sarile

I can see nothign but Angelica winning this part of the draw

[13]Jane Wong vs. Rachel-Anne Fleischmann
Catherine Pierce vs. [21]Riana-Shamira Zubir
[25]Candela Sanchez-Connelly vs. Caroline Mutola
Marta-Maria Conde-Martinez vs. [6]Brenda Van Haak

Jane Wong has been in a bit of a slump, after a good start of the year. She may even lose in first round, you do not know. Van Haak though is very dangerous


[8]Anabel Conde-Martinez vs. Jennifer Selles
Liezel Coetzer vs. [32]Tami Sugarn
[17]Lucia Kurkova vs. Zerene Fernandez
Qualifier #6 vs. [12]Tiffani Eggert
This part of the draw is the most difficult, no front runner but for the moment, I will tip Tami Sugarn

[14]Anna Kroulikova vs. Fleriancediore Hingisafrilia
Natalya Dlhopolcova vs. [22]Bryanne Applegate
[26]Nicoletta Lapentti vs. Carmen Prado
Qualifier #5 vs. [2]Marteena Huubere

This side of the draw is difficult, coz it contains a very dangerous carmen Prado who had been snapping up small clay titles quietly this year, while the other top players were struggling in top tier clay title. Look for Carmen Prado to snap up the draw and surprise us all

Ferrer v Ruflina
Dulko v Gambill
Angelica v Van Haak
Sugarn v Prado

semifinal
Ruflina v Gambill
Angelica v Prado

final
Gambill v Angelica

winner
Angelica

Handicapping the Field

[1]Larisa Ferrer: 3-1
-Hasn't won a title yet this season, but she is the favorite every time she walks on the court

[2]Marteena Huubere: 5-1
-Hasn't made much noise this clay season, but can always play well.

[3]Anjelica de la Courtiere: 2-1
-Favorite for the title. Had great results this year. Loves the clay. Will have to get past Lindsay-Anne Sarile first, but otherwise it should be smooth sailing to the finals.

[4]Eva Sorrenta: 10-1
-Very capable of running away with this title. Will have to get past Monica Gambill first. That may prove to be too difficult.

[5]Ruflina Taliamanosoko: 8-1
-Knows how to win. Has the talent to win. Playing good tennis. But can she put it together to do it again in the next 2 weeks.

[6]Brenda Van Haak: 10-1
-Should live to her seeding, but won't win the title. Could glide to the quarterfinals unnoticed if Jane Wong loses early.

[7]WC Selima Valentine: 20-1
-Coming back from a very serious illness. Very talented, but lack of match play will hamper her comeback this tournament. Look for her to be a threat at Wimbledon.

[8]Anabel Conde-Martinez: 15-1
-Could have a big tournament one day. Won't be here and now.

[9]Adriana Gonzalez: 30-1
-This top 10 player has the ability to live up to her seed, but won't go further.

[10]Gianna-Adrianna Dulko: 15-1
-Won a clay event this week, beating de la Courtiere, the hottest player on clay. Could be one to beat.

[11]Lindsay-Anne Sarile: 8-1
-Tough draw. If she can get past Anjelica de la Courtiere, she has a good shot.

[12]Tiffani Eggert: 25-1
-Won't get past the first round. Shouldn't even show up.

[13]Jane Wong: 12-1
-Former champion here has been playing good tennis, but not great tennis. Should do well, won't win the title again this year.

[14]Anna Kroulikova: 25-1
-Has the worst first round match. Fleriancediore Hingisafrilla is the most dangerous floater in the draw and will most likely win this match.

[15]Karla Herrera: 20-1
-Very dangerous player, always capable of that big upset. Hasn't proved to be a consistent big time player.

[16]Monica Gambill: 4-1
-Playing much better than her rank right now. Had tremendous results on clay this season. Will be one gunning for the title. Many pick her as the surprise winner. Will she be able to handle the pressure?

Other Notables:

[20]Madonika-Diva Jahfson: 7-1
-Loves big occasions. Playing well. Very hungry.

Fleriancediore Hingisafrilia: 5-1
-Having one of the best clay seasons on tour. Ranked 16 in the race to the chase. Will probably be inside the top 10 by the end of the year. Tough draw, but she may just get by.

Gisele Noventz speaks up before Roland Garros

The 19th seed, was interviewed by CNN after her pratice match at Suzanne Lenglen's court.

Q: Hi Gisele. When did you arrive in Paris?
A: Oh, I came Friday.

Q: Do you feel you're ready for Roland Garros?
A: I'm going to be honest with you. No I don't.. I think that I didn't play that well during the clay season like I did last year, so I don't feel confident enough. I'm just playing cause I have no points to defend. I'm more worry about my ranking then on Roland Garros, but let's wait and see..

Q: Did you check you draw?
A: Yeah, I did. I was pretty disappointed

Q: You're really close to Yadira. It's going to be an emotional match.
A: Yeah, I know. Well, what can I do? I'm going to try my best, cause I know she's going to and I know that she won't give me chances. I'm definitely going to be ready.

Q: Any favorites?
A: I think the Spaniards are a good choice, if I'd bet in someone.. Monica (Gambill) is playing a good tennis too, she won two tournaments on clay, so I think she's a contender. Anjelica (de la Courtiere) too. I think if I would pick a final, I think I would pick Monica against Anjelica. They seem more powerful on clay then the others.

Q: What about Larisa?
A: She might do well. But I believe more in Monica and Anjelica.

Q: And what about you?
A: (laughs) Like I said, I don't feel that ready and that comfortable on clay like I did last year. I have to admit that there are better players then me on clay, but I'm not going to give up. I'm definitely looking forward it.

Q: Are you playing with Anna again?
A: Yeah.

Q: The draw is not done, but do you guys think you can surprise?
A: Who knows? I'm hoping for the best to us. It's really fun and exciting to play with Anna, and she's a great player too, so I learn a lot with her.. About surprising? Yeah I do (smiles)

Q: Ok Gisele. We hope you break your negative streak in here, and good luck!
A: Thank you guys
