This is just for fun. Who do you think will win each major in '05 & who will they defeat in the finals? Heres my picks: (some are more like wishes)


AO- Venus over Clijsters-I would love to see these players battling each other for a major in top form.
FO- Justine over Mauresmo- The two best on clay with the best coming out on top. These two are an interesting matchup on any surface when Mauresmo can handle her nerves.
Wimby-Clijsters over Serena- Kim finally breaks through and wins her 1st major.
USO- Serena over Sharapova - Two of the hardest hitters and loudest grunters fight to a 3rdset tiebreak in front of a raucous NY crowd

YEC-Justine over Venus

My wish list:
Australian Open: Anastasia Myskina d. Elena Dementieva
French Open: Conchita Martinez d. Paola Suarez
Wimbledon: Silvia Farina Elia d. Ai Sugiyama
US Open: Chanda Rubin d. Patty Schnyder
YEC: Magdalena Maleeva d. Anastasia Myskina

Hey, no one said our picks have to be realistic ;)

Sep 12th, 2004, 09:03 PM
2005 Australian Open: Serena over Monica- I think this will be an exciting match-up, but an open/shut match (Serena in two)

2005 French Open: Venus over Serena- After a slow season start, Venus will come ever closer to a career Grand Slam. This wil be their best match EVER (Venus 16-14 in the third...with no hands, or bad line calls, or faults given as aces to the other players.)

2005 Wimbledon: Serena over Maria- At the trophy ceremony Maria said Seran can have her plate back...she's gonna yank it back! (Serena in two)

2005 US Open: Serena over Venus- This will be the first Grand Slam since '03 OZ where both will be going in healthy and Serena will prevail again. (Serena in two)

2005 Year-End-Championships: Venus over Serena- Serena will be tired from her semi with Sharpova and a fresh Venus will triumph..but not without a fight (Venus in three)

2005 Year-End Top 5:
1. Serena Williams
2. Venus Williams
3. Justine Henin-Hardenne
4. Maria Sharapova
5. Kim Clijsters

US Open - Serena Williams def. Elena Dementieva

I think that the only one that is far-fetched is the AO. I tried to keep them as realistic as possible. In a dream world, Davenport would win the FO to complete her career slam as well as the USO--bidding farewell on primetime television. Capriati would take the trophy at The All England Club, while Golovin would take her first slam in Australia. Yeah, those are really long shots. Even I won't hold my breath for those. Also, if Venus makes it past the Quarters at any Slam in 05, I would be shocked. She's lost her intensity.

RG: justine def Momo...best clay-courters go at it, but mental....

Wimbledon: Serena def Venus...Maria not defending her title, but still a SF.

U.s.open: Serena def Venus...just to tease those fans who picked Venus over Serena soo many times.

Dreams and Wishes for 2005:

I'd love to see Monica come back and win a slam - preferably Wimbledon but I don't care which one.
I'd love to see Navratilova take her 21st Wimbledon title in the women's doubles and win three other slams in mixed or women's doubles to equal Court's record.

Otherwise
I'd like to see Justine win Wimbledon and complete her set. Somehow I also feel it'd be nice if Jen managed a title at Flushing Meadows and if Kim and Amélie broke their slam jinx. That would make 5 slam winners already (including Monica) but what I most care about is seeing all the top players fit and committed so we get lots of high class battles between them all.

In general, I'd like to see more attacking play, especially a renaissance of the net game (Venus, you should lead that one girl), the touch game (come back Martina Hingis) and better umpiring.

Finally, I want to be ravaged by Carlos Moya -anytime, anywhere.
