My 10 predictions for Wimbledon 2009...

  1. Both Williams sisters will not reach the Final.
  2. Dokic will meet Ana in the 3rd round.
  3. Vaidisova will not reach Round 3.
  4. At least 2 seeded players will be out by the 1st round.
  5. Laura Robson will create a shock and defeat Hantuchova.
  6. A Chinese player will reach the 4th round.
  7. An unseeded player will reach the QF at least.
  8. A Russian will reach the semis.
  9. In the QF, there will be a match between 2 players from the same country.
  10. Either a player who has not won a GS or Wimbledon before, or Maria Sharapova, will be champion this year.
If none of the predictions come true, I'll do this in front of the camera at Murray Hill during the Women's Final....

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: My 10 predictions for Wimbledon 2009...

Seeing how at least either 3 or 4 must be true, your last bet is actually pretty meaningless.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: My 10 predictions for Wimbledon 2009...

1) One of the last 4 winners of Wimbledon will win again this year - but it won't be Mauresmo.
2) The Centre Court roof won't ever be used.
3) Safina will lose in the first week, despite having a very easy draw which argues otherwise.
4) We will see the return of a streaker on court at some point.
5) One Williams sister will lose at least 2 rounds before the other.
6) Robson will beat Hantuchova!
7) Sharapova will start looking like the player she was in Australia (a year and a half ago) once again. Watch out.
8) The fashion this year will be highly complimented and liked.
9) We will have 5 or more seeded casualties in round 1.
10) Sue Barker will be as flawless as ever.

Re: My 10 predictions for Wimbledon 2009...

1) Elena Dementieva will not reach round 2
2) There will not be an all Willams final
3) JJ will underperform again (not reach the QF)
4) The 4 semifinalists will be from 4 different countries
5) Pova will make a thunderous return by winning the title
6) Safina will score her best result ever in Wimbledon but still not reach the QF

Eugenie Bouchard - Naomi Osaka

in the end that prediction went wrog because more than a player retired so the match ain't finish with that formula

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

1. can still succeed
4. Not sure if JJ was really complaining (she called the trainer), but at least her presser showed how nice she is.
6. Uhm, it looks good in practise. In matches as well when she gets less nerves.
9. Would be strange if I'm wrong about this.
