The Predictions Thread

We are going to be 1 month without Ana.. so I thought we could play a game. Everyone who feels like playing can try to predict a bit of how Ana's season will shape up to be. The deadline for this thread will be the start of the Fed Cup matches in April. At the end of the season, we will see who got the most answers right. The prize will be a fistpumping vídeo of Ana. Or something better that I might think of..

Anyway.. on to the game:

Ok.. let's play and make predictions:

1 - When will Ana's first top 10 win of the season come?

A - May
B - June
C - July
D - August
E - September-October
F - She won't have any.

2 - When will Ana's first title of the season come?

A - May
B - June
C - July
D - August
E - September-October
F - She won't win a title this season.

3 - When will Ana qualify for the YEC?

A - September
B - October
C - She won't qualify to the YEC this season.

4 - Will Ana win a Slam this season?

A - Yes!
B - No...

5 - Will Ana really learn from her mistakes and change?

A - Yes, she will finally learn and improve.
B - No, but she will keep saying that she has learned.
C - No, and she will finally admit it.

6 - How much money will Ana make this season?

A - Less than 1 million.
B - Between 1 and 2 millions.
C - Between 2 and 3 millions.
D - More than 3 millions.

7 - Will Ana be a top 8 seed for Wimbledon?

A - Sure. She will collect enough points during the clay season.
B - I hope so, but not very confident.
C - No, she will bomb out early in the clay tournaments...
D - No, even though she will play ok on clay.
E - She won't even be top 10.

8 - If you are confident that Ana will win a title this season, then how many will she win?

A - 1
B - 2
C - 3
D - 4
E - More than 4.. she will suddenly dominate tennis.

9 - Ana has already played 5 tournaments. According to her schedule, she will play 12 more, including the YEC, though this one depends on qualification. How many early exits will Ana have from now until the end of the season?

A - 1/2
B - 3/4
C - 5/6
D - 7/8
E - 9-12
F - None.. she will suddenly be the most consistent player on tour, making quarter finals or better in the next 12 tournaments.

Ana hasn't been able to get past the 3rd round in her last 3 slams. Predict how she will do in the next 3 slams:

10 - The French Open.

A - Early loss... 1st to 3rd round.
B - Will barely reach second week. 4th round.
C - Might make the quarters.
D - Will stop in the semis.
E - She will go all the way to the final.

12 - Wimbledon.

A - Early loss... 1st to 3rd round.
B - Will barely reach second week. 4th round.
C - Might make the quarters.
D - Will stop in the semis.

F - Ana will serve and volley her way to the Wimbledon title.

13 - US Open.

A - Early loss... 1st to 3rd round.
B - Will barely reach second week. 4th round.
C - Ana will finally reach the quarters in NY.
D - Will stop in the semis.
E - She will go all the way to the final.
F - Ana will take NY by storm and win the title.

14 - Ana had 14 top ten wins in 2007 and 7 in 2008. How many top 10 wins will Ana have in 2009?

A - Less than 5.
B - 5-7.
C - 7-10.
D - 10-14.
E - Ana will beat everyone in the top 10 and break her own record. More than 15 wins.

15 - Last, but not least, predict Ana's season ending ranking:

A - Ana will get into an amazing form, beating everyone and winning everything to finish the year as the number 1 player in the world.
B - Top 3.
C - Top 5.
D - Top 8.
E - Top 10.
F - Ana will suck her way out of the top 10.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

Do you think she will win Eastbourne? You are not predicting her to win RG.. and the only other tournament Ana will play in June is Eastbourne.

I voted 1-2 million, but I just realised something.

Larry Scott's roadmap significantly increased prize money, didn't it? Ana doesn't need to do nearly as much to earn the same amount of money.

Can I change vote?
