I don't think there will be anyone who hasn't reached GS semifinals before in this year Roland Garros semis. Maybe only Ivanovic could get there...

Surprise semifinalists seem to be either clay court specialists or future top 10'ers.

As far as clay court specialists, there just aren't that many around anymore. OK, you can laugh me off the board with this one and it'd be fair, but the only one I can think of is Ana Medina Garrigues. I don't think she's really good enough to get to the semis, but with a luck draw it's not completely impossible.

Up & comers could be someone like Golovin if she plays, Peer, Safarova, Alona Bondarenko..
AMG just has no weapons, even with an open draw i just couldn't see her getting past the 4th round :tape: then again could be wrong

I think we will. Roland Garros is the slam were some of the bigger names loose early. Wimbledon can sometimes go like this.

I hope we do, this is why Roland Garros is my favourite slam, we have lots of surprises.
I will go for a long shot and say Anabel Medina :( I will probably be wrong though but should be interesting :)
I was thinking AIMG when I looked at this thread as well. If the draw opens up and she can keep it together than there is no reason why she can't go far

Vamos Anabel!

Anna Chakvetadze would kind of be a surprise... but she's done really good this year, so it might not be much of a surprise.

After Justine, the other high seeds could all lose early. There could be 3 surprise semifinalists.
