I voted for Conchita.

Arantxa & Conchita always have good clay season, lets hope the same this year.

I think Angeles Cristina Gala & Marta have chances to make good results.

Mariajo and Nuria will have to play lot of qualys.... what a pity!

with Magui you never know and Vivi seems to be more conentrated in her doubles career than in singles so...

Anabel....

Maybe we will get some surpises from Eva, as she will play lot of tournaments for the first time as a good ranked player she is now

Maybe Maria Antonia makes a super come back who knows? Lets wish it

And finally maybe we could se players like Ainhoa or Conchita M-G or why not Lourdes and company making the "step" as Eva did last year.

Anyway it will be an interesting clay court season

Of course, Conchi Martinez but I'm expecting Marta wining 2 tournaments, Arantxa as well, Medina 1 at least, and a Spanish surprise whose name is Marta Fraga.....
By the way why not all Spanish in clay season finals????

I think we´ll see Arantxa play even more Tier iii/iv tournaments than last year in an attempt to win back some ranking points. She´s entered Mexico city, plus has to defend at least Portugal and Madrid.

ok; I'm off work with a broken hand and VERY bored, so thought I'd dig up some old predictions and see how it worked out.

Below are win/loss records on clay 2002, Main draw matches Tier 1-5 and Grand Slams only.

Gala Leon Garcia 6/11
Conchita Martinez 8/9
Magüi Serna 17/8
Marta Marrero 2/10 (hard to believe one of these was the thrashing of ASV at RG)
Christina Torrens Valero 10/13
Arantxa Sanchez Vicario 12/11
Mª Jose Martinez 0/2
Angeles Montolio 7/9 (she was at 7/0 at one point )
Virginia Ruano Pascual 14/12
Nuria Llagostera 0/4

So the winner was...Magüi Serna!

Well just Magüi & Angeles won a title on clay, so it is not a surprise at all.

Anyway these stats change a lot if you include qualifying and Fed Cup.

Magui rules!!!

Jon, what the F*** happened to your hand?

I have spread my dreams under your feet

I meant its a surprise considering only 3 of the 30 who responded to the poll reckoned Magüi would be best.

spicey: um...an "accident" broke my little finger in 2 places and dislocated the knuckle. They had to operate and put pins in

I cant play tennis for 4-5 months
