YEC Predictions
Supergrunt Weekly

By Supergrunt
In ‘07 3 players were the last 1’s standing at all 4 grand slams, and with all the math that goes into determining who gets into the YEC, I think its time for a little review. 2 went to 1 and 1 to 6 and 1 to 8. 6 lost to 1 3 times and if you subtract the 1st number in the sentence by the 2nd and ad the 3rd you get 8 who lost to 3 3 times too. 3 did well but always fell 1 short to 4, and 5 might be the odd 1 out as she only won 3 games off of 4 in slam #2, 4 games off of 8 in 3, 3 off of 6 in 1, and 12 off of.. 31 in 4.Hence if you add 5’s total amount of games won in 1, 2, 3, and 4 and divide it by the rank of the surprise Wimbledon finalist and then divide that by the number of match points 1 had on 6 at the “5th” you get 1. Who can win the YEC= Only 1. So now let’s eliminate the variables.

1. Justine Henin- Henin did not play at the beginning of the year but ended it by winning 2/3 of the majors she played without dropping a set. She will be the favorite going in, but is certainly not a guarantee.

2. Serena Williams- She started the year out emphatically by ripping Sharapova to shreds in the Australian Open final and saving 2 match points against Henin to win Miami, but failed to make it past the quarter-finals of any of the other majors. The fact that she is playing 3 tournaments leading up to the YEC shows that she is determined to redeem herself.

3. Venus Williams- Venus missed the Australian and played poorly during the clay court season. She then won Wimbledon out of no where, where she managed to overcome some early round scares. With a semi-final showing at the Open, she re-established her consistency on the big stages.

Winner: Venus Williams
Dark horse- Kuznetsova

Other contenders: Serena Williams and Justine Henin

Nice try.

My crystal ball says Justine will win losing no more than two sets using complex string theory calculations.


Not the tallest or the most powerful but the bravest and the feistiest - she is poetry in motion and at her best she is the best

Adieu Justine. There'll never be another one like you

You know, I was so eager to read this... until I realised that it's from you... then I know it's a article which holds no significant water....

And by the way... who taught you Maths in school? You better complain to the Education Board about this, because the mumbo-jumbo you mentioned above shows that a madman taught you Maths, and your life was "scarred" by this event. Get your compensation and start tution lessons from a qualified tutor before it's too late.

Your sig picture exceeds the 200 pixel height limit.

Australian Open 2010 Final Result:-
Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

Re: Article Predicting the Winner of the YEC

Who would I choose between Venus and Serena to make the finals, or even win? Venus. That's assuming both make it to the semis.

Who would I choose to make it out of the group stages? Serena, by a mile. Venus could lose to anyone in the top 8, going by her current form.

Oh are you mad becasue I picked Venus over Henin? If I honestly thought that Henin would win, I would have put winner: Justine Henin ... but I didn't. Just respect my professional opinion.

And what is "tution"? Who taught you how to spell?
