Roland Garros Main Draw is available....

I must say that the new #1 Maria Sharapova has a relatively nice/easy draw. To put it another way, Maria will only meet ONE of the following (and that will not be UNTIL the FINAL) because each of these players is on the OPPOSITE side of the draw: VENUS WILLIAMS, SERENA WILLIAMS, JELENA JANKOVIC, ANA IVANOVIC, AMELIE MAURESMO, PATTY SCHNYDER, and NICOLE VAIDISOVA (just to name a few). Be that as it may, I still see Serena winning her 2nd French Open title. Gosh, these draws are simply questionable to say the least. Serena will take on Ashley Harkleroad (USA) in her 1st Round match. More details to come. Care to share your view on the draw or the tournament in general? Then click on the comment link (below this post) and let me know what you're thinking.

i was surprised to see serena face a top 5 player again in the quarters. after her three fights against justine last year i heard commentators say that for serena to avoid that this year she had to make it to number 5 which she did.
so not really sure how that works besides random drawing and such.
she still has a good draw since she wont face some big names so far this year dementieva, cornet,zvonereva, rodionova etc.
i was hoping if she did have to face a top 5 pl in the qtrs it would be maria or kutz but she can beat them all so no worries.
LETS GO SERENA!!!

Maria always gets the easiest draws. Maybe this tournamnet will be reminiscent of the 2007 US Open Tournament. Venus should also do big things in France as well; I am expecting a problem or two from Mauresmo as well if Venus does not get her game together. I love your blog and how quickly you get your article up. Thanx, I'm 15 so I apologize if I havent learned how to spell some words yet
