My dream at this year's AO is to have an early upset of either Maria Sharapova or Justin Henin.
Also I would love to see an unexpected semifinalist or two.

For Venus to win it. Though if I had to pick between Australia and Roland Garros, I'd go with the latter because I feel like Venus wants The French Open so badly. But all in all it's dream enough to even be able to go :)

I want to see Sharapova playing Vaidisova in the semis with Maria being the eventual winner after a 3 tight set.

And hope Henin can be defeated by someone in any round, just stop dominating.

*Wish list*
The emmergence of a new top player
Competitive high quality matches esp early rounds - no more 6-0 6-0 henin vs a seeded player in the 3rd round please....
Some early round upsets
Lindsay to get a favourable draw and make the 2nd week kicking some big name butt

*Fairygodmother wishlist*
Lindsay to get a tricky draw, defy all the odds and win her fourth grand slam defeating Henin and Shrieky along the way in epic three set matches whilst running about the court like she's an over-caffeinated Nadal. Jagger rejoices as Mama Linds rules Australia.

Yanina Wickmayer making it to the main draw and win, let's say, 2 matches.
Tati in the quarters and Ana at least in the semis.
But the thing I really want: some great matches between Williams sister, Justine, Ana, Tati in the quarters/semis/final (and of course other nice matches in early rounds).

Andy doesnt like English people, and English people dont like that. Im safe because im welsh :nerner::nerner::nerner:



but more importantly, the GB eurosport schedule will be made to fit around andy and we will see his matches replayed 19474562512 times instead of live tennis :fiery:

I would like to see a Brit qualify too - and go deep in the tournament. Bally reached 3R in 2005 and the Brit girls have been playing well done under/New Zealand, so fingers crossed.
Hopefully a couple of first time Quarter Finalists too.

2 smashing three set semi-finals, something along the lines of Henin- Williams and Sharapova-Williams. I realise it's not very likely and that Justine will most likely draw one of the sisters in the quarters, but a girl can dream, right?
