im under the impression it happens each year...ever year there is a top player in (reasonably) good form who goes to Paris and gets bitchslapped too early....a kinda anti climax to their good run

ie Venus and Amelie 2001
Kim and Justine 2002

so who do you think it will be? it seems inevitable.....

I'm going to say venus. I mean she's my favorite Williams because of her personality and her reach and backhand [my favorite side when i play] but i don't think she's as prepared going into the tournament. go venus!!!

You forgot Davenport in 2000 ;) It's ok she's not a good clay player, but it was a surprise to me :eek:

I think Dokic and Hantuchova, and probably Seles

Oh yes, sorry, I didn't see the 'in form' :eek:

So I think Jennifer can be upset early.. Who knows? Even my darling :sad: :sad: Everyone seems to be giving her problems :(

lol the great thing is, as Aus 03 showed, she can trip stumble and fall and still win the slam :D

now how many other players can do that??

Anybody can get knocked out any time.

I was surprised when Venus lost early in Miami. I would be very surprised if Serena lost early at RG. Ditto for Venus.

I don't think it is much of a surprise when Dokic or Hantuchova lose early anymore.

I'm hoping lighting doesn't strike Kim or Justine. :)

Lindsay is almost a sure bet to go out early on clay. The only surprise would be if she went deep in the tournament.
