Storylines to Watch For

Maria Sharapova in the Driver's Seat

After the top three seeds in the women's draw were bounced in Week 1, 2012 French Open champion Maria Sharapova has emerged as the overwhelming favorite to conquer Roland Garros for a second time.

And why not?

The 27-year-old Russian has won a major on every surface and has owned the remaining competition in the women's draw, as pointed out by Chris Skelton:

On top of her successful history, Sharapova has avoided the double-fault bug through the first week and is hurting opponents with her first serve. She won 92 percent of her first-serve points in the opening round and 88 percent in her third-round triumph.

With defending champion and Sharapova's kryptonite Serena Williams out, and 2011 French Open champion Li Na also gone, the world No. 8 has a golden opportunity to improve on her legacy with another Grand Slam title this summer.

 

Andy Murray Making Quiet Run

Despite boasting two Grand Slam titles, 27-year-old Andy Murray has never been lauded for his clay-court prowess. But that hasn't stopped the world No. 8 from making a run at Roland Garros this summer.

Murray skipped this event last year to rest his aching back and has reached the quarterfinals in Paris just three times in his career. But the early exit of No. 3 Stanislas Wawrinka has opened the door for Murray to win his quarter of the draw and reach the semifinals for just the second time in his career.

Coming into the tournament, Murray discussed the importance of building confidence on the challenging surface, per RolandGarros.com's Drew Lilley:

"It was good progress in Rome and obviously the goal here is to keep that going and remain at that level as often as I can for the rest of the year."

Murray would have likely been content with a quarterfinal berth as the No. 7 seed in the men's singles draw, but with Wawrinka out of the mix, Murray will have a favorable path to the semifinals, where he could potentially meet Nadal.

Although he's had his fair share of struggles, Murray's ability to win a high percentage of his first-serve points bodes well for him as he continues to march through the draw. Murray's athleticism also gives him an edge on the slow-playing surface.

While Murray can't yet be considered a favorite with Nadal and Novak Djokovic still in the mix, another upset or two could bring the Scotsman to the forefront in the final week.
