Australian Open!

I know its early and all but I thought it would be fun to pick the winner right now! Then, in January, we will look back at this and say "I told ya' so" or "What was I thinking"
(Oh yeah and pick the finalist as well)


My pick ,based on recent form, is Maria Sharapova She will gbeta Juju in the final 5-7,6-2,6-1

But watch out for Serena !

The Justine/Kim final does sound boring ! But even more boring is Juju def. Momo 6-3,6-4

remember Melbourne Park is always unpredictable.

I remember one year in the mens draw most of the top 16 seeds didn't even see the 3rd round.

And womens had a year a few years back where a lot of seeds lost early.

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie
