Maria Sharapova will not win US Open 2005. Here's why?

All the grand slam finals this year have been contested by former champions of the respective grand slam with the latter former champion winning in each ocassion.

AUSTRALIAN OPEN- 2000 champion Lindsay Davenport lost to 2003 champion Serena Williams

FRENCH OPEN- 2000 champion Mary Pierce lost to 2003 champion Justine Henin-Hardenne

WIMBLEDON- 1999 champion Lindsay Davenport lost to 2000 champion Venus Williams.

Do you notice a pattern? Not only are the former champions meeting in the final but it is the player who won her first title after the former (wins her first title) wins the final.

Lindsay won the Aussie Open first than did Serena so Serena beat her this year and the same has been for the Justine/Pierce and Venus/Lindsay

If this pattern is to hold up, I think the US Open final will be contested by former champions with the latter champion winning. My predicition:

1999 champion Serena v 2000 champion Venus Williams!!!!
winner-Venus!

So confusing. This type of info should be charted.

Good Luck in 2005 to:

Martina Hingis-Welcome Back!

Venus Williams-Queen of Tennis

Ana Ivanovic-Future Champion

Kim Clijsters-Darling of Tennis

Honorable Mentions: Dinara Safina, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Lindsay Davenport, Svetlana Kuznetsova. Good Luck Girls!

it is the year 2000 all over again with the finalists/champions. Ordinarily it would not be stunning with lindsay/venus in the winner's circle but considering how unlikely it was for mary to make a final at the beginning of rg, that is amazing!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

It'll be one of the following scenarios:

Monica Seles def Justine Henin-Hardenne
Monica Seles def Lindsay Davenport
Monica Seles def Serena Williams
Monica Seles def Venus Williams


FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Nice facts!

We'll just have to wait and see.

I hope that Lindsay wins the title though!

Nice observations. But you also forgot the finalist with five years between their first appearance. I imagine that Lindsay was in the finals of OZ five years ago and also for wimbledon. While Mary was in the finals of roland garros also five years too. Venus won her first grand slam five years ago.

Venus is my fav, but if your logic is correct, she would lose in the finals of the USopen to Serena.

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

You can look at it another way and say:

Serena wins Aus Open
Justine wins French Open
Venus wins Wimbledon
and then....who are we missing??? KIM! to win US Open.

But, following J Migoe's prediction, it could be Justine

JUSTINE HENIN
ALLEZ!!!
