Re: Who do you want to win the big titles in 2013?

AUSTRALIAN OPEN: Sam Stosur (to break the spell on the home soil and to give a much-needed boost to Aussie tennis - the home crowd would go crazy - could you imagine the TV ratings for the women's final ? )

Indian Wells: Venus Williams (she deserves another big title for coming back!)

Miami: Serena Williams (would make the home crowd happy and to make up for the 2012 upset)

Madrid: Laura Robson (WTA needs at least one strong British player )

FRENCH OPEN: Dominika Cibulková (she has already reached SF and QF in the past plus she could be the first Slovak player to win a slam and it would be cool if such a short player won a slam! )

WIMBLEDON: Petra Kvitová (to cement her place as an excellent grass courter and to continue the awesome results of Czech or Czech-born players at the world's most prestigious tournament )

US OPEN: Serena Williams (such a great player deserves at least one slam per year )

Beijing: Li Na (it would be great if she won in front of her home crowd, BTW could you imagine the increase in her endorsement deals ? )

YEC: Maria Sharapova (it's been a while since she won it )

Federation Cup: Czech Republic

Re: Who do you want to win the big titles in 2013?

^ Are you serious about Venus even playing IW?


As for me:
Australian Open: Serena Williams (it's her year in Australia, lus she will be super motivated after what happened last year)
Indian Wells: Agnieszka Radwanska (because she always loves playing there and I love this tournament as well)
Miami: Maria Sharapova (it's her time finally!)
Madrid: noone wants to play this shitty tournament so I'm going with some random winner like Azarenka
Roland Garros: I think it's the most unpredictable one, it might be either Serena who will be even more motivated than in Australia, but it can be also some excellent 'natural' clay-courter like Jankovic, Stosur or Ivanovic.
Wimbledon: Agnieszka Radwanska, just because I so want her to win this one. Kvitova and Serena are the most challenging for her.
US Open: Sharapova, she deserves to win here again.
YEC: Tough to say now who is gonna play there, but if Serena stays healthy and plays all year she is a huge favorite now already.
Federation Cup: Czech Republic.

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Not sure, it was just a wish list. BTW, I wouldn't complain if a Polish player (probably Aga Radwanska) won a slam.
