FRENCH OPEN TENNIS
KATARINA SREBOTNIK- PATTY SCHNYDER
Odds are wrong here, win or lose, just cannot agree with Srebotnik's price, where the bookmakers have gone overboard about her defeat of Serena Williams. Schnyder has had a very slow start to 2008 but has shown recent signs of improvement and has superior clay court form to her opponent. The Swiss player is 74-40 lifetime on the surface and it normally takes a top ranked player to send her packing, for example last year she lost to Ivanovic in the Berlin quarters, Jankovic in the Rome semis and Sharapova 9-7 in the third set, in a 4th round match at Roland Garros. Her Slovenian opponent is 55-44 lifetime on dirt and has 16 wins at RG to her name, compared to Schnyder's 28 , which include a quarter final appearance. Have to side with her to claim another.
