In ‘07 3 players were the last 1’s standing at all 4 grand slams, and with all the math that goes into determining who gets into the YEC, I think its time for a little review. 2 went to 1 and 1 to 6 and 1 to 8. 6 lost to 1 3 times and if you subtract the 1st number in the sentence by the 2nd and ad the 3rd you get 8 who lost to 3 3 times too. 3 did well but always fell 1 short to 4, and 5 might be the odd 1 out as she only won 3 games off of 4 in slam #2, 4 games off of 8 in 3, 3 off of 6 in 1, and 12 off of.. 31 in 4.Hence if you add 5’s total amount of games won in 1, 2, 3, and 4 and divide it by the rank of the surprise Wimbledon finalist and then divide that by the number of match points 1 had on 6 at the “5th” you get 1. Who can win the YEC= Only 1. So now let’s eliminate the variables.

1. Justine Henin- Henin did not play at the beginning of the year but ended it by winning 2/3 of the majors she played without dropping a set. She will be the favorite going in, but is certainly not a guarantee.

2. Serena Williams- She started the year out emphatically by ripping Sharapova to shreds in the Australian Open final and saving 2 match points against Henin to win Miami, but failed to make it past the quarter-finals of any of the other majors. The fact that she is playing 3 tournaments leading up to the YEC shows that she is determined to redeem herself.

3. Venus Williams- Venus missed the Australian and played poorly during the clay court season. She then won Wimbledon out of no where, where she managed to overcome some early round scares. With a semi-final showing at the Open, she re-established her consistency on the big stages.

Winner: Venus Williams
Dark horse- Kuznetsova

Other contenders: Serena Williams and Justine Henin

Nice try.

My crystal ball says Justine will win losing no more than two sets using complex string theory calculations.

You know, I was so eager to read this... until I realised that it's from you... then I know it's a article which holds no significant water.... :help:

And by the way... who taught you Maths in school? You better complain to the Education Board about this, because the mumbo-jumbo you mentioned above shows that a madman taught you Maths, and your life was "scarred" by this event. Get your compensation and start tution lessons from a qualified tutor before it's too late. :lol:

Who would I choose between Venus and Serena to make the finals, or even win? Venus. That's assuming both make it to the semis.

Who would I choose to make it out of the group stages? Serena, by a mile. Venus could lose to anyone in the top 8, going by her current form.

Oh are you mad becasue I picked Venus over Henin? :rolls: If I honestly thought that Henin would win, I would have put winner: Justine Henin ... but I didn't. Just respect my professional opinion. :(

And what is "tution"? Who taught you how to spell? :p

bullshit you are totally bias there, how can a player who cant even win a tier IV two weeks before the tournament be a favorite, of course she can surprise us and win the whole thing but she is not a favorite, its like saying ivanovic will win just because you felt it.:rolleyes:

supergrunt
Oct 16th, 2007, 07:56 PM
I'm not saying that she is the favorite. Obviously Justine is the favorite- I did say that. I am saying that Venus will win.

I'm not boring like Steve Tigor or Tracey Austin; both journalists who play it safe to avoid embarrasment and appease their respective audiences. No, I take risks, live on the edge, speak my mind, and throw out the rule book. If you can't handle that then don't read my entries. :shrug:

People, give him some credit. Apart from that 'maths' bs (sorry:lol:) he came up with some good points. You'd expect him to go with serena so it must have taken a lot for him not to go with serena. Good choice of winner too. I can see Venus winning it too. She may not have won the tier 4 and 3 but you learn more from your loses than your wins dont you? Also, even though venus has too, henin had cooled down at Stuttgart and really could have been beaten by the world no. 19! She may be favourite but its far from a *hand over the trophy* situation.

the difference between them and you is that they back up their predictions with facts you just by your heart and thats being bias, and please even if you are correct this time and venus does win, and then you make more predictions along with austin or tigor they would still have a lot more correct predictions in one year guided with facts than you would EVER have following your heart.:wavey:

Ok well let's look at some statistics... head to heads... Venus lead Henin 7- :mad: Look I'm not arguing with you. If you have a problem with my writing send a complaint to my employer.

Anyone could be beaten! Yes Tati won the first set, but after that she won 3 games in the next two sets, so where has Henin cooled down a bit? Just because she lost a set? :spit:
