French Open 2010

Read about French Open 2011

The season for back to back Tennis Grand Slams start on Monday 24th May 2010 with The French Open in Paris. This will go on till 6th June 2010. After a short break of two weeks comes the Wimbledon.

The two week grand slam is played on clay. In fact, it is the only grand slam to be played on clay.

Clay is the slowest surface for playing tennis. This also makes it one of the toughest - especially for players who like to play on the fast grass courts.

The draw and the seeds are drawn for this year's French Open. And it is time to estimate the probable winners of this year's Open.
Starting with the men's draw, you have the familiar favorites - Rafael Nadal,  Roger Frederer. Frederer is seeded first and Nadal second.

Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are the dark horses. 

And on clay, you can never discount the Spaniard's. Someone out there might be lurking to make this tournament his very own.

My personal favorite to win the Open this year is last year's champion - Frederer.

The women's draw is wide open - considering the wide variety of talent that is on display these days.

As always, you have the Williams sisters - with Serena seeded first. Her sister Venus is seeded second.

Then you have the talented ladies from Eastern Europe - Jelena Jankovic from Serbia & Dinara Safina and Svetlana Kuznetsova and Elena Dementieva from Russia.
Then you have the former super stars - who are not in great form these days - Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic and Justin Henin.

As far as fashion is to be considered, it looks to be straight battle between Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova.

But on the court, one girl who is going to give all of them a run for their money is Caroline Wozniacki from Denmark. She has made a lot of news this year for her talented display of tennis.

She is seeded third and is my favorite to win the title this year.
