2006 - Could this be the year we have all been waiting for?
2006 should prove to be the year of great expectations, as well as fabulous tennis for fans and players alike.
We have the re-emergence of past players like Hingis and Dokic, and a field of veterans playing out of their minds (Davenport, Pierce, and Mauresmo). Combine that with the greatest champions of the last few years (Williams x2, Clijsters, Henin-Hardenne, Sharapova) and that's sure to be a spectacular season! But what makes this even more interesting is that all these players will be competing with a whole slew of young players, eager to make their mark on the tennis world. Vaidisova & Ivanovic are looking to steal the spotlight, as well as some others with big games. Look out for Dementieva and Petrova to make some leaps and bounds as well...
I for one, despite some great wins from my favorite players, am looking forward even more to 2006 and the potential match-ups from some very talented players.
