2006: Third Year of Belgian-Williams Combo?

Think we'll see it for the third
time this coming year?

2003
Australian Open: Serena Williams
French Open: Justine Henin-Hardenne
Wimbledon: Serena Williams
US Open: Justine Henin-Hardenne

2005
Australian Open: Serena Williams
French Open: Justine Henin-Hardenne
Wimbledon: Venus Williams
US Open: Kim Clijsters


I'd personally like for a Kim/Venus
06' ala 03' Justine/Serena.

With Venus retaining Wimbledon
and winning one of the two she
hasn't yet.

well - Amelie, Lindsay and one random russian will have thier say regarding the AO.
RG is the Justine territory, but Petrova has shown great results there in the past, Amelie might finally break her home-town spell and Pierce is so strong there.
the Wimbledon tourny is always going to be about lindsay, sharapova and venus - but I think Kuznetsova might find herself at home there, just my feeling.
and the USopen - if it doesn't go Lindsay's way i'll be so sad. Elena D always has a say there while Kim proved she feels home on hardcourts.

it might all go for a grand slam, it might be taken by 3 different russians again - it won't be a belguim/williams affair again, that's what i feel.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Want Venus to repeat at Wimbledon and win something she hasn't already. Serena I would love to see win the US Open.

Mauresmo has a greater chance at winning Wimbledon before she stops choking and wins RG
when she wins Wimbly,then the choking fest will stop and she'll show some balls and win RG

That would be nice, althought I'd prefer Venus to win the first three of the year and then have Serena and Kim battle it out for the U.S. Open!

Three titles for Venus are what I'd like to see most; if she gets these, everything else is gravy!
Australian Open, Antwerp and the diamond racket, and Wimbledon.

It would be better for the tour if this doesn't happen, if there could have first GS winner and other unexpected, it would be more entertaining

I'm not sure if it will happen to be honest. I think that a Russian will win a slam again - possibly Sharapova winning at Wimbledon again. Maybe Dementieva or Mauresmo will break their duck and win their maiden Grand Slam.

Well since two of the four happen to be my favorite players I'd be dancing on the clouds if Kim and Serena not only took all the slams in 06, but battled it out in the finals of all four slams.

The likelyhood of that is slim, but a boy can dream...
