    French Open Women's draw

    I was just looking at the women's draws. Mauresmo has a pretty good draw. Her hardest potential opponent would be in the quarters against Venus. Venus needs to get by Patty Schnyder to set that up though, no easy task on clay. Mauresmo is playing well on clay right now and the top half of the draw is easier, as long as she plays well.

    The bottom half though is brutal. You've got Henin-Hardenne, Dementieva, Hingis, Clijsters and Myskina, who is playing well again in this tournament and has won it before. Some excellent matches possible in the r16, with Hingis-Dementieva, Clijsters-Hantuchova, and Henin-Hardenne-Myskina. And Petrova had been in that half but got knocked out. The bottom half is wide open, and I could see any of those 5 coming out of it.
