Year End Predictions

Make Year End predictions doubles and singles (top 4 and 8 respectively!)


Double-
Lindsay Davenport/ Lisa Raymond
Venus Williams/Serena Williams (if they actually play 5 tournaments or whatever this year =P)
Martina Navritolova/Svetlana Kuznetsova (YES THEY CAN DO IT! go martina!)
Paolo Suarez/Virginia Ruana Pascual


I don't think Rennae will make it...I don't think she has found a permanent doubles partner yet, which will knock her out for being one of the top 4 teams, I think

Singles-
(not in any particular order!)
Serena
Venus
Justine Henin
Kim Clijsters
Lindsay Davenport
Monica Seles
Magdalena Maleeva (wishful thinking?)
Hantuchova

(capriati might hang around 9-15, if she pulls her stuff together =P)

Singles only for me.

1) Kim Clijsters (1 slam + many small tournaments + she plays a lot of tournaments)
2) Serena Williams (2 slams, awesome winning %, but won't play as much as Kim)
3) Lindsay Davenport (Sweeps smaller tournaments, indoor season)
4) Venus Williams (Just like last year, but not FOUR GS finals)
5) Hantuchova (Steady improvement)
6) Jennifer Capriati (ends title drought, some big wins)
7) Amelie Mauresmo (does well at the big stage, won't beat the top four)
8) Justine Henin (clay season points, won't beat the top four)
9) Elena Bovina (Slam break-through, does well in Tier Is)
10) Monica Seles (Hangs on with inconsistent results, but some big wins)

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

i think it is to early to tell. wait until after roland garros and then i can predict. someone in the top 10 might have a bad tournamnet at the french or someone like daniilidou, myskina, rubin, schnyder or bovina might have a great tournament and move up to say #11 or #12 and then they will be close to the top 8 and if they pull off some great wins or someone in the top 8 has some bad performances then the top 8 for one of these players might be in reach.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

well, also an injury could happen to one of the tops to sideline them for a while, which would suck =(

1 Skruuuulfz
2 Gaak-Nihma
3 Sehr Ehnawi Liam
4 Hingis Clone #68 (With steel ankles)
5 Nahahg
6 Venusian Whi Liam
7 Martian Hanavr Hatilowa
8 Alexandra Stevenson *


* Alexandra Stevenson is an alien coming from Hot Air Baloon Planet.

I was thinking the same thing.

I kinda agree with you quasimodo, only i'd put the Hingis clone # 68 on top, no one can top those steel ankles!

I need a sig

Sorry, I just can't see any of these beating Venus and Serena. Also, I have to stay loyal to Amelie and Dani. Accordingly, I have to say:

1 Serena Williams
2 Venus Williams
3 Amelie Mauresmo
4 Daniela Hantuchova
5 Skruuuulfz
6 Gaak-Nihma
7 Sehr Ehnawi Liam
8 Hingis Clone #68 (With steel ankles)
9 Nahahg
10 Venusian Whi Liam
