French Open: Jankovic def. Dementieva


I think a part of my soul would die if that happened.

4-0 Jankovic v. Dementieva in grand slams, if not 5-0 (cuz of AO), omg :o :o :o :o :o

But other than that, that'd be a cool final. ;)

austalia: serena (she plays well on the surface and is looking fit and focused after her US open win)
french: henin (i have a feeling she'll be back... they all come back)
wimbledon: venus (bet against her at the big W at your own peril)
us open: serena/sharapova (sharapova will be starving by then, but who knows how that shoulder will hold up. her forehand is just too high, i dont think she'll ever recover)

It's too hard to say, but Serena is the favorite for Australia, although honestly I would be so excited if Venus won an Australian Open. I'd also be happy if Serena won another French Open.

I won't say that JJ will win a Grand Slam util she starts winning some tournaments like Tokyo. This are tournaments she should be able to win now. Or give a hell of a fight.

I don't truly believe in my gut that Jankovic will ever win a slam, but if I think about it rationally, with a better rest, she should make a real run at the Aussie, which is a surface she SHOULD excel on. So I think I'll go with:

AO: Jankovic
FO: Kuznetsova
WI: Serena
US: Serena or Sharapova

Sharakim

AO - Sharapova (Maria will probably come in as an underdog, but hopefully she'll use that as motivation to defend a GS title for the first time in her career)

FO - Jankovic (This might be a shock to some, but I smell a first time GS champion here)

WIM - Serena W. (Serena will want to win wimbledon bad to avenge the defeat in this years finals)

USO - Sharapova (Maria will have a great summer and soildify herself as the hard court queen of 2009 with a winning preformance at Flushing Meadows)

AO- Serena def. Zvonareva 6-1 6-0 (i mean, she wins it every other year like clockwork)
FO- Jankovic def. Dementieva 5-7, 7-6, 6-4
Wimby- Venus def. Schnyder 6-0, 6-7, 6-0
USO- Zvonareva def. Pennetta 3-6, 6-2, 10-8

FRA: Kuznetsova def. Jankovic
WIM: Serena def. Venus
USO: Safina def. Sharapova (who ends the year healthy, wealthy, and wise, cuts her schedule to 14 a year, and is at #5 or so)

I wouldn't predict Safina to ever win USO. She has a SF and QF there, but both of those runs were extremely weak. Her best win at the event is Pennetta, and it was #36 Grande in the '02 USO 1R until that victory.

And until she can beat Venus, Serena, or even Dementieva on hardcourt, I don't give her much shot at beating Sharapova either. :tape: She did beat her at Moscow that one year, though...

I'd be heart-broken if Venus lost two slam finals next year.

Venus takes two: her beloved Wimbledon AND Aus Open.

She said she wants to win YEC and then work really hard during the off-season. So, I say let's finally add Aus Open to your stable Venus.

The French will be hard fought between: Jankovic, Petrova, Safina, and Ivanovic.

Serena, Venus and Maria will be fighting it out for the U.S. Open.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one starting to fancy Venus for a win in Australia...after all these years!

AO - Venus def. Serena
FO - Ivanovic def. Jankovic
W - Venus def. Sharapova
USO - Serena def. Venus

Although 3 players defending their slams in one year would be unlikely!

I think this may happen:

Australian Open: Venus Williams def. Serena Williams
French Open: Serena Williams def. Jelena Jankovic
Wimbledon: Venus Williams def. Maria Sharapova
Us Open: Serena Williams def. Venus Williams

And both Venus and Serena finish the year number 1 and number 2, That's my dream, I've been dreaming and waiting on it for a long long time I think it's time for the dream to become a reality.
