Post Why would YOU LIKE your favourite player to win the Oz Open

I'd personally would like Lindsay to win the Australian Open because I think she deserves it. <br /> I think she's done so much to get to the position where she is, I see her as an inspiration to myself. It's been almost 2 years since she hasn't won a Grand Slam, and the two finals in Wimbledon and US Open in 2000 broke my heart <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> . Since then, I've been wanting her to win a Slam, and last year she did not perform "so well" in this tournaments <br /> This way she can prrove she's a real Nº1 and feel more confident with herself<br /> <br /> Other two players I'd like to see winning it again would be Jennifer and Martina

I would like Venus or Serena to win here cause they are my favourites, and I wish that they take home a slam they so wish to win <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I hope Monica can win it cause it is such a shame she was denied many slams cause of a certain tragedy. So I think she should be allowed this slam.

Mary Pierce I wish could win this too, simply because she is a great player, just a series of injuries that have kept her out of the game.

Iva Majoli, simply because a win here may kick start her career. I love her game, so I hope that a win may help her.

VENUS
Serena
Lindsay Jelena Maria

Mary : Monica : Svetlana : Sania : Jennifer : Amelie
Roddick : Grosjean : David : Djokovic

I would love to see Serena winning another GS, just to see her reaction, and this would help more and more her greatful carrer. She would get more mature, and maybe a better player that she is...<br />I reall expect her to win <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I would be very happy <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

townsend × rezaï × lisicki × vesnina
keys × mladenovic × siniakova × jankovic

I want Kim to win because I want her to make the next big step in her career

I want Serena to win because it becomes time she shows her true potential again

I want Amelie to win because it`s sad that she broke down after the french open last year and I want her to get back were she was before

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I want Juju to win because I want her to be the 1st belgian girl to win a Slam and to finish the year at the 1st spot <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> Oh, and I want her to win so that she can show the world that "size doesn't matter"!

I want Kim to win because that would be fun to see boyfriend and girlfriend win the same Slam at the same time! <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

After everything Mary has been through, I think she deserves a little happiness.

I will be glad when Monica Seles wins the 2002 Australian Open because she is one of the most talented as well as nicest players on the tour. Also there is no player who deserves to win more than Monica. It will put her in double digits for Grand Slams.

I'd like Jennifer to win to prove all the doubters wrong who say she can't defend her title. I mean c'mon no-one thought she was going to win it 2001 who's to say she can't do it again this year?!

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

There are many players that I would love to see win the Oz Open.

Martina Hingis- She is too talented to not have won a slam in nearly three years and Martina continues to try and prove herself to be a top contender.

Lindsay Davenport- Lindsay is another player who should have won a slam this year. I would love to see Lindsay win here since this may be her best chance to win a slam in 02.

Serena Williams- With the proper preparation, Serena could be in the final this year. By winning the IW's, the Canadian Open, making the final of the US Open defeating Hingis and Davenport and winning the Chase Championships, I believe Serena has regained her 99 form. I would love to see her win here.

Venus Williams- With no preparation, Venus came into the Oz Open and made it to the semifinals. If she plays the Gold Coast and doubles @ Sydney with Serena, that should be adequate preparation for Venus to make it to the final.

Monica Seles- Monica last won this event in 1996 and she has not won a slam since. After regaining great form this summer and fall, it appears that Monica is ready to be a top contender again. It would be great to see Monica win a slam here.

Mary Pierce- Mary won this event in 1995 and although Mary has not played an event in nearly a year, it appears from news reports that she has been training really hard to get into the best playing shape possible. It would be great to see Mary reemerged here.

Justine Henin- Justine's great Australian summer run began here last year with her winning two titles and making it to the fourth round of the Oz before facing defeat by Seles. Since then, Henin's game has improved dramatically with her making it to the semifinals of the French, the finals of Wimbledon, and winning one title and making the finals of two other events. If she is able to repeat her summer wins, there is no reason that Justine can't win again.

Kim Clijsters- Has improved dramatically since the beginning of the year. There is no reason that she can contend for the top title here.

Anna Kournikova- While 2002 is a rebuilding year for Kournikova, it would be nice to see her have a good run @ the Oz. Unfortunately, Anna stands to lose a lot of points if she does not @ least make it to the quarterfinals. Here's to hoping that she will make it.

I wouldn't mind if any of these 3 did the butt- kicking: Serena, Venus or Jennifer. Big-time kicking with relish.

bianka lamade - she is my favorit player and i hope she win each single match in her whole carrer. but i´m realictically and i know it will not happen

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I would like to see Lindsay winning the first grand-slam-title in 2002 because she didn´t win a grand-slam tourney for two years, even though she has always played quite well through the last two years. But because of bad draws and injuries, she wasn´t able to win one of the "BIG FOUR". <br />Maybe she will make it better this time.<br />I wish her the best.

Pat

Good Luck: LINDSAY , Marion , E.Bovina
