Re: Will we have a new slam winner in 2014?

In a previous similar thread posters were requested to predict next years slam winners. One poster’s prediction was as follows:

AO- Caroline Wozniacki
FO- Sara Errani
Wimbledon- Sabine Lisicki
USO- Sloane Stevens

That poster quickly retracted and disavowed this prediction; claimed it was only made in jest. And he admitted that his real sensible prediction would be that Serena will win one or two of next years’ slams. Well now I was disappointed that such a brilliant prognostication should suffer such an ignoble fate. So I have stepped in and endorsed this prediction and have adopted it as my own.

You will note that the beauty of this prediction is that none of these projected winners have yet won a slam. Ergo the answer to the question posed by this thread is yes we will have a new slam winner in 2014. Why we will actually have four!

Bine could win Wimby. Other than that, its Queen Rena dominance!

Re: Will we have a new slam winner in 2014?

Lisicki could win Wimbledon. I could see Radwanska winning a slam if the draw opens up, not sure which one is her best chance.

Beyond that, it is pretty much it. Serena and Azarenka could win all the slams next year, and I give Na and Kvitova amongst past winners outside shots to win a slam next year. Dont see anyway past winners Stosur, Pova, or Kuzy win one next year

He might have meant mixed doubles slams.

Also, I believe Cornet can do very well if she keeps playing the way she does - getting better and better mentally, physically and technically. And if she can win one, it's the French.

Please feel free to laugh, it could be a joy to bump that thread up in a few months or years.
i understand being a fan has its own meaning at TF, but i really can't believe you said something like that in public. you should seriously get your shit together.

to answer the poll - no.
