Seles, Hingis

Take a stab now. I reckon Henin, Sharapova, Clijsters and Mauresmo are the faves, but you can never count oit the Williams' and Davenport.

Nov 17th, 2006, 09:26 AM
There's already been a thread on this. Try doing a search next time before you make a duplicate thread.

To answer your question. I'd say Sharapova, Henin, and Hingis have the best shot. Momo, imo, will choke.

Don't immediately belittle the new poster. He/she has only arrived to the forum and didn't realise that there was already a thread....

Nov 17th, 2006, 09:36 AM
Maria I hope :)

Nov 17th, 2006, 09:59 AM

Nov 17th, 2006, 10:07 AM
I think Amelie will win it again, i would love patty to win it though :)

Nov 17th, 2006, 11:01 AM
jelena dokic! no just kidding.... it would have to be amelie, maria, justine, or maybe one of the williams girls.... also look out for nadia petrova, svetlana kuznetsova, clijsters and the serbian girls jankovic/ivanovic to make the quarters or semis

I think Martina will give it a rattle - probably semis or something. Kim will be back, and Im sure she will not have much of a holiday as she's had so much time off before the off-season. Justine will give it a fair go, as will Amelie.

As an outside, I think Anastasia will return to some fine form. Her two Q's speak for themselves.

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:00 PM
Between Justine, Maria and Amelie, I'm interested to see who will be the betting favorite.
If another player wins, I'd guess there are another 6 or 7 players with a chance.

Kim, Sveta, Martina, Serena, Venus, and Nadia all have the ability to play well enough to be threats.

I'm interested in how some of the younger player do, like Nicole, Anna C, Jelena.
I don't expect any of them to win this major.

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:03 PM
i think justines success at YEC and ending the year #1, plus her retirement last year will have her mega pumped up to win! she'll be really motivated.

I personally dont see amelie having such a good year next year, i think she might struggle with the pressure of repeating last years success.

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:06 PM
I agree with the Amelie part.

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:20 PM
Kim or Justine. If they are in opposite halves this will be the final. If in the same half Justine will make it through

Quarters: Sharapova, Clijsters, Davenport, Henin Hardenne, Mauresmo, Jankovic, Vaidisova, Kuznetsova.

Semis: Sharapova, Clijsters, Henin Hardenne, Jankovic

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:21 PM
Hm, I'd say Kim, but it's very open isn't it. It'll be either Kim, Justine, Maria or Amélie, can't see anyone else take the cup :)

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:24 PM
Shouldn't we wait for the tournaments before AO, especially Sydney? They will show the form of top players.

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:25 PM

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:29 PM
though i don't think there were any needing to make this thread but once again i'm sure masha has the best and highest chance of winning it!:)

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:34 PM

hope she does anyway shes grown on me the last 6 months.

Nov 17th, 2006, 02:36 PM
Then again davenport might be training hard in the off season to make a raging come back.

heres to hoping eh ;)

Nov 17th, 2006, 04:20 PM
Lena Dementieva!!

Nov 17th, 2006, 04:22 PM
I think Svetlana Kuznetsova will finally get her second slam. Sharapova, Clijsters, Henin-Hardenne, and possibly Serena and Petrova will be the other contenders in my opinion.

Farina Elia Fan
Nov 17th, 2006, 04:25 PM
I really think Hingis has a great chance!!

Nov 17th, 2006, 04:50 PM
I hope Venus or Serena!

Nov 17th, 2006, 04:51 PM
Kim Clijsters

Nov 17th, 2006, 07:06 PM
The Queen herself, Justine Henin-Hardenne

Nov 17th, 2006, 07:58 PM
Serena, Kim, Venus, Davenport or Maria

Nov 17th, 2006, 08:27 PM
Williams Sisters Final

serena def hingis
venus def sharapova
serena def JHH
Venus def Davenport
Final Serena or Venus :-)

Nov 17th, 2006, 08:33 PM
hopefully hingis can end her 8 year drought, if not dementieva please

most prob it will be henin

Nov 17th, 2006, 08:40 PM
henin or sharapova, but maybe vaidisova can do well and jankovic. they will be kinda suprise packages. not a big suprise cos they are top players but a little mildly shocking suprise

Nov 17th, 2006, 09:00 PM
Jankovic could be a good bet, although if she starts of as slow as she did this season maybe not.

Would love to see Davenport give it her all, surely shes in the final stretch before retirement now.

Hingis, did well on her comeback and could definately stand a chance but i just dont think she is capable of it yet.

Henin, what can i say? hate the bitch but she plays amazing tennis, if she plays as well as she has been its deserved.

Sharapova, probably will it i think.

Nov 17th, 2006, 09:02 PM
I hope either LenaD or Vee will win it but more realistic id just hope neither JHH, Mauresmo or Sharapova win it its getting boring with those 3 winning everything

Nov 17th, 2006, 09:56 PM
I really think Hingis has a great chance!!

well,is pretty tough for her to go that far,but maybe a qf prediction is better for now!

Nov 17th, 2006, 10:00 PM
the winner,IMO,will be found from masha or henin and or momo.alike this year they'll have probably the most hardest competition for gaining YEC #1 spot.of course if kim's really insisting to retire next year,she must play as good to be one of top 4 contenders,though it seems to be impossible!

Nov 17th, 2006, 10:12 PM
The defending champion. :)

Nov 18th, 2006, 12:17 AM
Williams Sisters Final

serena def hingis
venus def sharapova
serena def JHH
Venus def Davenport
Final Serena or Venus :-)

That's my dream

I just wanna see Serena beating Justine or Sharapova

Nov 18th, 2006, 12:32 AM
Aleksandra Wozniak..... in my dreams, seriously I believe Maria Sharapova will win it or a fit and in shape Serena would also have good chances

Nov 18th, 2006, 04:49 AM
serena williams def. amelie mauresmo 6-1, 6-2

Nov 18th, 2006, 04:52 AM
Serena def. Justine 6-4 7-5
Serena def. Maria 7-6 6-4

Nov 18th, 2006, 06:10 AM
Using my brain then - Henin, Maria
Using my heart - MARTINA HINGIS

Nov 18th, 2006, 06:20 AM
probably henin again :yawn:

Nov 18th, 2006, 06:21 AM
Hingis is known to have strong results at the beginning of the year. Look for her to make a go at this one.:)

Nov 18th, 2006, 06:26 AM
Mauresmo, Henin, or Sharapova though I would love to see Elena or some other player win it.

Marcus Jordan
Nov 18th, 2006, 07:03 AM
I think Martina Hingis is the only player with a chance of winning the AO.

Amé of course:p

Nov 18th, 2006, 11:15 AM
Well, first of all I hope all the players will be healty for the Australian Open. This Grand Slams gives me an exciting feeling in my stomach, because I then haven't seen tennis for about two months you know. I think everyone has that feeling. I hope, well you can predict it, that one of the Williams sisters will win it. But I give Henin-Hardenne and Sharapova also good chances. I really really hope that there will be an All Williams final:D

Nov 18th, 2006, 11:47 AM
Between Amelie, Justine and Maria.

But you can never count out Kim, Lindsay and the Williams Sisters

Nov 18th, 2006, 12:02 PM
Justine without dropping a set :)

Nov 18th, 2006, 12:04 PM
I think Martina or Nadia should do it :armed:

Nov 18th, 2006, 08:15 PM
Maria or Justine very likely to win. Amelie, Serena and Venus as outside possibilities.

Nov 18th, 2006, 08:18 PM
I think Justine will win it

Nov 18th, 2006, 08:19 PM
Hingis v Kuznetsova 6-4 6-3 :cool:

Nov 18th, 2006, 08:20 PM
Amelie :)
