2012 French Open: TK's Picks Day 12

Thursday is women's semifinal day, and it should be a really good one. I think the way they are playing that any of the four semifinalists could win the slam.

On Wednesday, I went 4-0, taking my totals to 62-18 for the tournament. Hopefully, I can get the final six matches right as well. Here's my look at the women's  semifinals.

No. 6 Sam Stosur vs. No. 21 Sara Errani: Stosurs hasn't dropped a set in this tournament and is playing fantastic. Her kick serve is very effective on the clay and should give Errani all sorts of problems. I think Stosur will be able to break Errani's serve a lot more than Errani will be able to break Stosur's, and that will be the difference.

Winner: Stosur in two sets

No. 2 Maria Sharapova vs. No. 4 Petra Kvitova: This should be a classic. Two grand slam champs going at it. The two have had some great battles in the last year. Sharapova is 2-0 in their meetings this season. Sharapova also has the added pressure of knowing if she wins this match, she will move to No. 1 in the world. Both players have looked really good at times in this tournament. Kvitova is coming off a three-setter, and I think that might make the difference.

Winner: Sharapova in three sets
