Your 2008 Predictions - Multi-choice

This is a new version of the 2008 predictions thread - which was meant to be multi-choice, but wasn't. Following voting in the earlier thread, (few votes for Bartoli or Jankovic) I've made a couple of small changes.

This time you've got as many choices as you like. Which is likely to occur in 2008?

Re: 2008 Predictions - Multi-choice

The only thing that is constant is change, therefore:

Justine will drop level, New comer will win slam/olympics, Venus will win slam/olympics outside wimby and sharapova & mauresmo will regain form.

Venus Ebony Starr Williams

Re: 2008 Predictions - Multi-choice

I tend to feel Justine may not be able to keep her present domination throughout next year. If Ana can conquer her nerves she may get close to a slam title. Mauresmo seems to have vanished from the radar. Maria, on her YEC form SHOULD win a slam. Olympics should be interesting if everyone is there

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

2008 will go down in history as the year Elena D. began her reign as Supreme Tennis Goddess of the Universe.

(She is currently merely Supreme Tennis Demigoddess of the Universe).

Elena has been looking dangerous at times this year - but not consistently.
