It's Sharapova's time—but watch out for Wozniacki (women's French Open predictions)


Some of the biggest news on the women's side at the French Open has been talk of the potential quarterfinal between Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.

I'm not going to mark it as a guarantee both will be there: If anything happens to break it up, I think it can Caroline Wozniacki knocking off Serena. That run should end against Sharapova, who I'm picking to win it all. Here's how else I see it:

Round of 16
Victoria Azarenka (1) vs. Lucie Safarova (20)
Sloane Stephens vs. Samantha Stosur (6)
Venus Williams vs. Ana Ivanovic (13)
Flavia Pennetta (18) vs. Marion Bartoli (8)
Li Na (7) vs. Roberta Vinci (17)
Francesca Schiavone (14) vs. Petra Kvitova (4)
Serena Williams (6) vs. Caroline Wozniacki (9)
Maria Kirilenko (16) vs. Maria Sharapova (2)

Quarterfinals
Azarenka vs. Stosur
V. Williams vs. Penneta
Li vs. Schiavone
Wozniacki vs. Sharapova

Semifinals
Azarenka vs. Pennetta
Schiavone vs. Sharapova

Finals
Sharapova over Azarenka
