French Open 2011 - Page 2
Andy Murray is seeded 4th. He should have an unhindered run in his part of the Quarter into the second week.
The third Quarter has more champions. Roger Federer will be playing in this section and is seeded third. He would look to conquer his fears of playing on clay and try to win the Open. David Ferrer of Spain is seeded 7th and can give Federer a run for his money.

It is disappointing to see a very few Spanish players in the top seedings at the French open. For long, the Spaniards were considered as masters of clay. Today, only a few players are upto the mark.
In the last Quarter, you have the second seed Novak Djokvic of Serbia. Going by his good form, he can give Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal a tough run.

However, going by the form book, Nadal looks all set to with the French Open again. Frederer and Djokovic are the men who can give him a tough challenge.
Moving onto the Women's Draw.
The women's draw is equally tough. My eternal favorite - Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark - is seeded first. However, in her Quarter, you have Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia seeded 28th, Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia seeded 13th and Samantha Stosur of Australia seeded 8th. Svetlana can be a giant killer although she is seeded 13th.
In the second Quarter, Vera Zvonareva of Russia (seeded 3rd), Jelena Jankovic of Serbia (seeded 10th) and Francesca Schiavone and Italy (seeded 5th) will be battling it out. Vera seems all set to win this Quarter. Yet on any of the day, Jelena or Francesca can give her a run for her money.
The third Quarter looks to be devoid of stalwarts. This gives the former World Number One - Ana Ivanovic from Serbia - a chance to prove her mettle. If she plays her game nicely, she can move into the quarters. Who wouldn't love a stylish player in the second week?
