The success of two surprise semi finalists at last year's Wimbledon has put punters on alert for the possibility of some more upsets in 2011. Tsvetana Pironkova has not built on that shock performance, but Petra Kvitova has gone from strength to strength and is suddenly a title challenger for slams.

The new world number 10's maiden Premier mandatory tour win at Madrid was her third title of the year and proved her game is as suited to clay as it is to grass. Her impressive run to...

The time is right for Victoria Azarenka to win her first slam. She has matured as a person and player and has the power-hitting game to succeed on the clay courts of Roland Garros. Some her main rivals are struggling for form and fitness and her excellent current form makes her one to follow in Paris.

Two-time beaten finalist Robin Soderling will once again be looking to earn his first Grand Slam victory on what is his favourite surface at Roland Garros.

By the time Wimbledon comes around at the end of June, Roger Federer will be hoping to have reclaimed his place among the world's top two players, after his disappointing season so far saw Novak Djokovic climb ahead of the Swiss star in the world rankings. One of the main reasons behind Federer's slip in the rankings has been his form against his the players around him, so far this season losing every match against both Rafael Nadal and Djokovic.

While all the talk of the French Open has so far been focused on Andy Murray and his lack of a coach, or the fact that the Williams sisters and perhaps even Kim Clijsters are set to miss out on playing at the French Open due to injury, Rafa Nadal has rather strangely been able to duck under the radar and instead allow the other names to be the ones that have been cropping up in media circles.

However, despite the presence of Roger Federer, the improvements that Novak Djokovic has...
