It’s hard to believe that World No.1 Serena Williams has only won one French Open trophy in her career. A big contender for the greatest of all time in the women’s game, Serena’s French Open record is a modest one. Of course, the year Serena won the only slam on clay she also went on to complete the ‘Serena Slam’ – the American held all four majors at once, which was something that she aimed for at the start of the year.
Alas, for it was not to be. The 31 year-old perished at the quarterfinal stage in Melbourne earlier in the year as Sloan ‘new Serena’ Stephens defeated her idol, by playing the match of her life at the Rod Laver Arena. Never one to give in, one of Serena’s underrated assets is her resilience on court. The American refocused and was back before one knew, and has now got five titles under her belt already, out which four she won after the debacle in Melbourne. The American has since won 2 WTA Premier Mandatory events in Miami and Madrid, following which she won a Premier 5 event in Rome.
It’s safe to say that Serena is undoubtedly the favorite to capture her second French Open crown here in Paris, especially after winning both the preceding aforementioned clay court events. Once again, Williams has been dominant but her real test starts now as players such as Azarenka and Sharapova also bring their top games to Grand Slam events.
Opposite the great American stands a unique talent in Romanian Sorana Cirstea. Cirstea is one of the best strikers of the tennis ball and on the day Sorana finds her range, she can make life difficult for any player. The 23 year-old though has been erratic once more and has a win-loss record of 16-13.
Head to Head: The World No.1 has a one to nothing record against the Romanian, but that solitary meeting was on a hard court and as we all know Europeans tend to play better on clay.
