Re: Top 5 Grand Slam Prediction Thread

The French is always open. If Paula Suarez and Clarissa Fernandez can make the semifinals, and Myskina can win it, and Kuznetsova the final, anyone can win. I'm never surprised at who wins the French.

I can't predict the Australian either. I mean, it's so hard to predict when the season hasn't even started. But really, anyone can win a Slam. It just tends to be a Williams sister, Sharapova, J2H, or Mauresmo now.

How can you see her as a contender at the Australian Open and the favourite at Wimbledon and the US Open?
She may win a Slam in 08, but I just can't see it happening this year

Re: Top 5 Grand Slam Prediction Thread

we'll see. I hope with the conclusion of the trial, she can focus on tennis now, and get ready to get back to the top. I mean, she's only played 11 tourneys since she won the AO, so in terms of matches, it wasn't THAT long since she's won big, so hopefully, she'll work hard for the next couple of weeks, get some win at Hobart and pick up where she left off before the injury.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Re: Top 5 Grand Slam Prediction Thread

yeh i think she is a contedner for the australian open, i mean imo i think she can do it, obviously not with ease, but i think she is capable of knocking out the top seeds. by the time wimbledon and the us open comes im hoping that serena has played a healthy schedule so she would go in as a contender, maybe not the fav but she should be considered
