Good God, I've never seen so many professional seers, psuedo-psychics, and self-proclaimed clairvoyants in my life! Can we declare a moratorium on all of these worthless "prediction" threads?

Stop saying you know what will happen at the Australian Open! :fiery:

No one really knows what round Serena will come up against a player playing the match of her life, what round Mauresmo will eat yet another humilating bagel, what round Clijsters will be whipping out her MRIs, what player Jankovic will have a mental breakdown against, or how many fingers Yuri will be holding up during Maria's guaranteed semifinal! :mad:

I can "sense" that some cranky replies will be coming in the future! :angel:

I agree on the "who will Serena play in R1" thread because that's just silly but really i think vogus was just stating his opinion that overplaying before a slam is not a good idea - i don't think he predicted who would beat her or anything so that's fine. much worse threads on this board!

The prediciton threads are a bit daft if you take them seriously.
Otherwise they are an interesting way of gaining peoples opinions of players current strengths and weaknesses and they are a delightful change from the ususal "who has the best outfit", "who is the prettiest if you are blindfolded", dokic, stevenson and kornballikova threads :tape: :lol:

1. Alves will be the chair umpire.

2. Hingis will take a very suspicious injury time out.

3. Serena will smash a racket.

4. Serena will say "Martina played the match of her life out there today."

5. Hingis will say "For the first 4 games, I thought she might actually have a chance."

Practice what you preach?

Perhaps the definition of general is too general. But i will admit it is intriguing who serena will play in rd 1 coz she could draw maria. Just as we waited in anticipation to see who hingis was going to draw last year when she came back and was unseeded.

I don't have a problem in the prediction threads because I love to know other people's opinion.

And if there are no these type of threads, then the GM threads will only consist of fashion/beauty threads and/or "who beat who in which scoreline" threads.

The prediction threads are refreshing and fun to read (as compared to the above threads).

You'd make a great reporter! :o

You're already an expert at cutting out parts of people's quotes.


Martina Hingis :o I can totally see it happening :lol:



If we're lucky:

1. Alves will be the chair umpire.

2. Hingis will take a very suspicious injury time out.

3. Serena will smash a racket.

4. Serena will say "Martina played the match of her life out there today."

5. Hingis will say "For the first 4 games, I thought she might actually have a chance."



That will provide enough fodder for years!!!

Clearly, my predictions were a joke. :rolleyes:

Nonetheless I fearlessly predict:

1. Lena D. won't win it.

2. Even though I have predicted this, her failure to win will upset me.

3. I will post a statement that Lena D. should play more points at the net

There it is. My 100% guaranteed to be accurate prediction.
