Roland Garros Preview
Roland Garros kicks off today and after winning Istanbul, Elena Dementieva faces a tough road at the French Open. She opens against against Angelique Kerber of Germany who is currently ranked 93 in the world. I don't know much about Kerber as virtually nothing is on her WTA profile page. But Elena should not underestimate her and do her best to reach the second round. Elena has this thing about first rounds where she tends to struggle so I hope she gets through this. She should have a lot of confidence coming in to this match and should definitely come out as the winner.

In the second round, she could face either Mathilde Johansson of France or the struggling and unseeded Anna Lena Groenefeld. Groenefeld has been struggling since late last year and hasn't come back into her old form which brought her to the Top 20. She used to be a good clay court player but this year has been a complete disappointment for her. She'll most likely be Dementieva's second round opponent and if she's come to terms with herself, she could be a very dangerous opponent.

In the third round, she'd probably face Marion Bartoli[18] or Aravane Rezai who Dementieva beat just yesterday at Istanbul. Rezai struggled with injuries but had a great week in Istanbul beating Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova. Bartoli on the other hand has had a ho-hum clay court season.

If Elena wins her third round match, the road will get much tougher from then on. In the fourth round, she'll likely face Venus Williams or the in-form Jelena Jankovic. Jankovic stormed through the ranking and is currently the world no. 4. Venus Williams on the other hand is coming back from an injury like Elena and looking for a grand slam breakthrough this year. Both girls are very tough opponents for Elena but I hope that she could get past them.

Possible quarterfinal opponents for Elena are Nadia Petrova and Nicole Vaidisova. Both girls are suffering from injury as of late. In the top quarter of the draw are Justine Henin and Serena Williams.

Good Luck Elena!!!
