- Petkorazzi to replace Zvonareva as the Tour's leading bridesmaid;

- Slamless Wozniacka to keep hold of #1 throughout the whole season;

- Babyfat won't crack the top 10;

- and finally the bold one: an U-21 basher will hit a purple patch and win (not do well - WIN) a depleted USO.


The Kanepi prediction is pretty bold too. However, she has made the QF of three slams before. I could see her having a clay season very similar to Petrova 2006. She's a good clay-courter who is capable of snatching wigs when playing well.

She could easily end the season top 10 if things go right.

Damn, that was going to be mine I genuinely see it happening now it's moved to clay, I picture a semifinal loss to someone like Kanepi or Mattek-Sands.

Others:

-Ivanovic will make a Slam semifinal and win a title other than Bali
-Zheng Jie will win an Olympic medal
-Clijsters will NOT have retired by the end of the year.

- Sharapova will lose before the fourth round in all four Slams.
- Petrova will medal at the Olympics or make a Wimbledon semi.

Corswandt, who would the under-21 basher at the US Open be? The highest-ranked player who would fit these two criteria right now IMO is Jovanovski, and I don't think she's going near a Slam any time soon.

Suitable candidates all still in the #100-200 range right now. But the USO is still so, so far away. And we'll witness massive personnel changeover in the #40-120 range over the next few months.

Kvitova * Garcia * Konjuh * Dodin * Robson * Haddad Maia

Re: Make a BOLD prediction about the 2012 season

Is on this forum possible to quote own signature?
Which tool I should to use?

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)

Re: Make a BOLD prediction about the 2012 season

- Mladenovic will be the next breakout star of the tour.

- Kvitova won't make it to #1.

- Pironkova will medal at the Olympics.

- Goerges will go into a massive slump and finish the year at the bottom end of the top 100.

- Someone in the #100-200 range will make the SF/F of Wimbledon.

Grassonkova.

Re: Make a BOLD prediction about the 2012 season

Brie Whitehead will finally lose a tiebreak.

Hantuchova will make TOP 10 again and Cibulkova will retire.

There will be new shocking GS winner (Gaudio RG2004-like).

Samantha Stosur will become a world Nr 1.

Re: Make a BOLD prediction about the 2012 season

Andy Roddick will give up and he will change his sex in order to win Wimbledon and still won't make it

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
