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

Just for fun. Keep in mind that this is NOT meant to be a list of predictions but rather a list of what you would like to see happen, even if it's totally unrealistic.

AND to make it a bit more interesting and less predictable, please include the names of AT LEAST FOUR DIFFERENT PLAYERS. Everyone already knows that we would want our number one faves to win everything. It's more fun if we're required to look beyond that and find out which other players we'd choose for some glorious moments and exactly which titles we'll choose for our fave when we have to be selective. Included are the four premier mandatory events, the four majors, the YEC and the Fed Cup which is the most prestigious team event.

I know that many won't uphold the above 'rule', but I hope that at least some of you will.

AUSTRALIAN OPEN:

Indian Wells:

Miami:

Madrid:

FRENCH OPEN:

WIMBLEDON:

US OPEN:

Beijing:

YEC:

Federation Cup:
