Le French Open, part deux

So I basically know next to nothing about tennis.

For the men's top eight, I predicted:

Federer, Soderling, Murray, Tsonga
Roddick, Ferrero, Gonzales, Nadal

Results: 3/8 correct. Actual top eight:

Federer v. Soderling, Berdych v. Youzhny
Melzer v. Djokovic, Almagro v. Nadal

And for the women's top eight, I predicted:

S. Williams, Sharapova, Wickmayer, Radwanska
Kuznetsova, Wozniaki, Dementieva, V. Williams

Results: 3/8 correct. Actual top eight:

S. Williams v. Stosur, Jankovic v. Shvedova
Schiavone v. Wozniaki, Dementieva v. Petrova

It's time for a new set of predictions! Hooray!

Men: Federer will play Berdych and Djokovic will play Nadal, with a Federer-Nadal final and Nadal winning in five.

Women: Honestly, I have no idea. But I'll go ahead and pick the upset: Stosur will beat Serena Williams to play Shvedova in the semis, and will go ahead to win the whole thing against Petrova in the finals. It's your year, Sam!

Fun week ahead.

That's the only thing I got right so far! Schiavone and Stosur in the finals--should be fun to watch!
