Kuznetsova Destined to win Us 2008? (weird trend)

So far in 2008 all the GS winners were at least finalist in the grand slam they won this year last year....

With Henin retired... for this to continue Kuznetsova will be the 2008 US Open champion...

Of course most considered Henin/ Venus the final last year.......

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

Hantuchova

NO! Henin is Destined to win USO/08... but she retire

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

So are you saying by default Venus will be USO champ? I can live with that.

In theory yes, but it ain't gonna happen.
I even dare to bet all my dvd's for it. Which has the same value of a new car.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Re: Kuznetsova Destined to win Us 2008? (weird trend)

I would happy if she wins it, but I have less and less faith that she will win another GS someday

Maria Sharapova
wim 04 / uso 06 / ao 08 / rg 12 / rg 14

I hate it when people post these crappy 'trends' which mean absolutely nothing.
What's the point?

Re: Kuznetsova Destined to win Us 2008? (weird trend)

LOL, I said the same thing before Wimbledon started on another forum, but felt Marion would not even pass the quarters so it had to be Vee. I WAS RIGHT!

I'd be stoked if Sveta can do it if not Venus or Serena.

Foxy

Foxy's Team:VENUS, S. Williams, Vika A, Ana I, Elena D, Svetlana K, Vera Z, Maria K, CaroW, Petra K & Maria Sharapova
Roger & Delpo


WORD: Just because your friend or the pundits or the crowd doesn't agree or dislike something doesn't mean you need to, you are actually entitled to your own opinion even if it doesn't agree with that of everyone else. Don't be a a negativity sheep!

For IW:

List of winners:

2007: Hantuchova
2006: Sharapova
2005: Cljisters
2004: Henin
2003: Cljisters
2002: Hantuchova
2001: Serena
2000: Davenport
1999: Serena
1998: Hingis
1997: Davenport
1996: Graf
1995: Fernandez
1994: Graf
1993: Fernandez
1992: Seles
1991: Navratilova
1990: Navratilova
1989: Manuela Maleeva

Not considering the first 2 years (weak field), 30% of the IW winners has won the US Open in the same year; 65% has reached F; 70 % has reached the SF; 80% has reached the QF.

If we consider only Grand Slam winners, the percentages become respectively: 40% won, 85% reached the F, 90% reached the SF.

Of all the Grand Slam winners who have won IW, only Henin in 2004 (injured) and Davenport (1997) didn't reach the US Open final in the same year.
From another thread

I know I'm a CoPyCAt!!!!!!1 of Cpbuja, so what? That stats are true.

Nope, Sveta was destined to win USO 2004 when Lindsay who had been beating crap out of everyone that summer but got injured at the Flushing Meadows.

The crappy trends threads are fun, loosen up!

One actually came true. When Venus loses early at RG, she wins Wimbledon. Maybe we can find more trends that are true.

If it was about Sharapova you'd be all over it like white on rice.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.
