Mary Jo Fernandez Predicts Year End Top Five

Cliffie put her on the spot during the telecast on Sunday. Asked her if Capriati would be top five at year's end, asked her if Davenport would be top five at year end, then asked her who WON'T be.

MJ said specifically Henin-Hardenne would NOT be top five. Her picks?

Serena, Venus, Kim, Lindsay, Jenn

Now all we gotta do is wait six months and see if she's right

Proud to be an American

I think there is a pre good chance that she will turn out right. that's very probable.. I would even say the most probable list one could think of.. I think she decided to go very safe this time.

JenCap will not be top five because she will be titleless this year.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Yes, she got the top 4 right. Henin looks like a better bet for the 5th spot.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
Rtael is online now

Her birth name is Maria Jose (with an accent on the 'e' of Jose, but i don't know how to do it), she could call herself Mary Jo, but chose to spell is Mary Joe, and it was always specified by her as such on draws, rankings etc etc.

Hope that's clear. Is very early on monday morning and am avoiding real work.

she probably wanted to sound more american (or her family did since I think she was 2 or so when she moved there)

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Very pro American choices, I think that she has three of them right, but to be honest Lindsay, although she has no points to defend might not get that high. ALso Justine is playing much better then Jen and Lindsay right now and its hard to see her falling from the top 5.

I really hope that Jelena can get back in the top five

It's a good choice for the top 5 but Amélie and Justine could easily be in the top 5 too - you just never know with injuries and bad patches from some of these players.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
