Most of may favourites are old (tennis-wise)
Marion isn't in this discussion yet,but I saw an article where someone mentioned Patty's name in re motherhood,and she hasn't said anything noteworthy yet as Elena D. was doing even in 2008

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

bruce, for one who doesnt seem happy with me trashing that little upstart Rezai, you arent that complimentary to gracious Momo! Lets not forget Marion has her own very very very very very very dubious retirement record! Why the dislike? Momo seemed one of Marions few french friends on the tour.

Well,my wayward Scottish lover,'Super M',posted several comments made by Mauresmo that bad-mouthed Marion,BIG-time,and undermined her standing with FFT...now aye HAVe heard that they made peace with each other before 'Momo' retired...so I suppose that I should give Mauresmo some credit for that and forget the ugly moments,huh?....oh,and I really don't care if you bad-mouth Rezai;you misunderstood....I simply find your dedication amusing sometimes--it doesn't bother me at all

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

I haven't been posting here for such a long time... so I guess my first wish would be that she makes me want to support her again, which means NO TANKING.

Then, I'd say without any logic:
- a deep Grand Slam run & 2/3 titles obviously
- no random run to the net on a prayer
- a limited clay schedule to rest for the Summer
- finding again her retrieving skills which have gone missing this year
- a win in Eastbourne
- not losing to the likes of Pironkova and Razzano

**** KRISTINA MLADENOVIC Future Star ****

Supporting Marion Bartoli - Aga Radwańska - Aravane Rezaď - Laura Robson - Caroline Garcia !!!

We could be looking at a top 10 finish rather than top 15 too.

Re: Your (realisitc) hopes for 2011

I fully expect a top 10 finish. Shes gotten massive points from the first part of the year, and is defending quarters in Stanford, Cinci and Montreal (which she should defend given she'll be a top 8 seed there now) and has early exits in NY, Tokyo and Beijing. I wouldnt be surprised to see her surpass 4500, or even 5000 points.
