Amelie Mauresmo takes the US Open crown.


Marat makes up for that sorry excuse of losing Aussie this year

Sep 8th, 2002, 05:32 AM
Australian : Rita Grande
Roland Garros : Martina Hingis
Wimbledon : Anna Kournikova
US Open : Vera Zvonareva

This is a wish list,right? :rolleyes:

Sep 8th, 2002, 05:33 AM

Lindsay wins wimby over serena
Jen wins U.S over Venus or serena

This is a wish list,right?
Yes, but can we stretch with just a hint of realism???

Sep 8th, 2002, 10:44 AM
I just want to see a non Williams final. Not that I dislike them, but I like variation.

Sep 8th, 2002, 10:58 AM
Monica wins all of them ;) No really... stop laughing! ;) Anyway.

Aus Open - Monica Seles def. Martina Hingis
French Open - Monica Seles def. Jennifer Capriati
Wimbledon - Monica Seles def. Venus Williams
US Open - Monica Seles def. Serena Williams

Although I would accept:

Aus Open - Monica Seles def. Martina Hingis
French Open - Kim Clijsters def. Serena Williams
Wimbledon - Venus Williams def. Jennifer Capriati
US Open - Ameile Mauresmo def. Venus Williams

Sep 8th, 2002, 11:03 AM
My wish list

Serena defeat Monica in a hard fought battle. Monica back to full form (with Monica defeat Venus en route) Serena complete hee grand slam

Martina defeat Serena in the final of French Open. Martina complete her collection of trophys

Venus defend her 'home' court against Lindsay

Monica defeat Serena in a dramatic three set Saturday night thriller

I actually want Amelie and Kim and Jenny to win something, but there is just not enough slam in year LOL

Sep 8th, 2002, 11:04 AM
Oh yeah if Lindsay wins one of those instead next year, I will be very happy for her as well

Sep 8th, 2002, 11:06 AM
Lindsay to beat Jennifer in Oz Final
Martina to win the French to complete her Grand Slam titles.
Amelie to win Wimbledon
Jennifer to win the US Open

Sep 8th, 2002, 12:17 PM
Kim to all for WTA
Lleyton all for ATP!! :bounce:

Sep 8th, 2002, 12:27 PM
Kim Clijsters def. Martina Hingis walkover as Hingis went to a party with Ricky Martin - cos she can't stand seeing Anna with Enrique - the night before and was too drunk to hold her racquet

Martina Hingis def. Justine Henin in a long three setter where Hingis finally deals with her past when Henin crosses the net to get her cap blown away by a a strong wind. Hingis needs CPR though when she almost died laughing at the scene.

Justine Henin def. Venus Williams and tries a lil dance but Venus throws her racquet at her and she stumbles ripping off the dress of the Duchess of Kent

Alexandra Stevenson def. Lindsay Davenport with a bagel in second set after mummy Stevenson threw Richard Williams camera right in Lindsay's face.

Anna Kournikova and Martina Hingis win the grand slam in doubles

Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias vs. Martina Hingis-Ricky Martin is the final in mixed doubles at the Oz, but the match is cancelled after the men both start singing, crowd tries to save themselves in vain and after gazillions of complaints mixed doubles is forever cancelled as a tennisevent.

Sep 8th, 2002, 12:54 PM
Australian : Martina Hingis
Roland Garros : D.Hantuchova reaches final (no metter is she wins or lose)
Wimbledon : D.Hantuchova won the grandslam.
US Open : Reaching final (and may be beating one of the Williams.)

Sep 8th, 2002, 01:13 PM
OZ final: Venus Williams def. Serena Williams

W: Mirjana Lucic def. Iva Majoli :eek:
US: Iva Majoli def. Mirjana Lucic

Arantxa and Conchita play.

Sep 8th, 2002, 01:31 PM
Villa, do we have some problems with baby sis? ;)

Here is my ideal (but not too far fetched) grand slam list:

Aus: Monica Seles def. Serena Williams, then retires

French: Martina Hingis def. Jennifer Capriati (Sisters are injured)

Wimbledon: Serena Williams def. Venus Williams (no one else knows how to play on grass)

US Open: Jennifer Capriati def. Serena Williams (the old Jen returns for the US Summer/European Indoor season)

What I think it will be:
Australian: Serena def. Venus
French: Serena def. Jen Cap
Wimbledon: Serena def. Venus
US Open: Serena def. Venus

My totally far fetched Prediction:
Australian: Monica def. Serena
French Open: Martina def. Venus
Wimbledon: Anna K. def. Dani
US Open: Jenny Cap def. Serena

That sounds great...particularly if they win the Aus. Open so I can be there to see them win.

My non-slam wishlist for 2003: for Australia to win the Davis Cup

Sep 8th, 2002, 01:34 PM
Oh carrot, Ricky Martin is Gay :rolleyes: So unless Martina gets a sex change, Ricky won't be interested.

Sep 8th, 2002, 01:38 PM
Baby sis is beating up on venus and i don't like it:fiery: :fiery:
She's had 3 slams this year and if she don't win a slam or reach a final next year it won't bother me one bit..:mad:

Reality-wise, I'd like to see Monica, Martina, Amelie and Venus all win a slam next year.

Obviously Monica takes priority.

The person I'd most like to see win a slam in a dream world would be Anna K - it would be fantastic if she won a slam next year :eek:.

Sep 8th, 2002, 02:25 PM

French Open: Monica Seles
Wimbledon: Monica Seles (!most importaint!)

Australian Open: Chanda Rubin does a Capriati-style comeback and stuns Serena in the final. 6-4 1-6 7-5

French Open: Venus Williams bt Kim Clijsters 6-3 6-1

WImbledon: Venus Williams bt Serena Williams 6-4 7-6

US Open: Serena Williams bt Martina Hingis 3-6 7-5 6-2

I think my wish list is very realistic of what could happen next year!

Sep 8th, 2002, 03:12 PM
Wish list with as much of a hint of reality as I like :p :

AUS: Elena D confounds all critics by suddenly living up to her potential, beating Serena in straight sets along the way. Wins final over Martina Hingis, in her seventh straight Slam final. Meanwhile, Marat Safin atones for his sins of 2002 by not dropping a set on his way to the title.

RG: Iva Majoli returns to the scene of her '97 exploits and becomes much more than a one-Slam wonder, beating a resurgent Lina Krasnoroutskaya in the final. For the ATP, Carlos Moya finally backs up his '98 title in an uncanny echo of the women's final.

W: Having not won a single match all year, Anna Kournikova comes from nowhere to win Wimbledon, beating defending champion Serena Williams in the first round. She beats Mirjana Lucic in the final, Lucic having avenged her US Open embarrassment by beating Venus 7-5 in the third in a tense semifinal. Meanwhile, Guga is the surprise men's winner ;)

US: Anastasia Myskina storms to her first Slam, beating Dinara Safina 7-6 in the third in the final. No US player, male or female, survives the first round, and the crowds are forced to acknowledge the existence of other countries. And Juan Carlos Ferrero wins his first Slam somewhere other than the French.

With apologies to Justine for Roland Garros...

Sep 8th, 2002, 03:14 PM
Amanda Coetzer wins the Australian Open, beating Martina Hingis in the final.
They turn that around at Roland Garros.
Anna Kournikova wins Wimbledon, beating Serena in the final.
Martina wins the US Open, beating Venus in the final.

Roger Federer wins in Aussie land, Tommy Robredo in Paris, Sjeng Schalken in London, and, ah well, this is a wish, Raemon Sluiter wins New York.

Aus Open: Lindsay

She beats Mirjana Lucic in the final, Lucic having avenged her US Open embarrassment by beating Venus 7-5 in the third in a tense semifinal.

Sartrista7: No way Lucic could meet Venus in a GS semi next year based on her low, low, low ranking. Probably be a 1st round match.

Sep 8th, 2002, 09:51 PM
Mi wish would be that Lindsay can take at least 1 slam, it's all I ask. All though I would like the French preferently:D

Sep 8th, 2002, 11:44 PM
Ausopen : Serena defeats Capriati

Roland Garros: Serena defeats Hingis

AO- Serena (to complete a career slam)

FO- Hingis (to complete a career slam)

Wimbledon- Venus (I want her to be able to compete with Pete's 7 slam wins)

US Open- Davenport (Here's where Davey's slam wins began)

Chase- Venus (Because she has never won here before)

Sep 9th, 2002, 02:09 AM
i don't care how many more traumatizing finals Martina has in Australia as long as she wins Roland Gaross in the future. That is the one grand slam that will remain in her past until she wins it all together.

2003 Australian Open: Serena Williams
2003 French Open: Martina Hingis
2003 Wimbledon: Lindsay Davenport
2003 Us Open: Jeniffer Capriati or Monica Seles

Sep 9th, 2002, 02:13 AM
This is so interesting, fans want Serena to win the Australian and Martina and Lindsay to win the French next year. Now, I predict 2003 will be a very exciting year. I believe the race is finally on to see who becomes the 9th woman to hold all majors in her hands. Serena has an advantage with Australia being first. One of these 3 ladies will become the 9th woman to collect all Majors:)

Sep 9th, 2002, 02:14 AM
Martina wins the GRAND SLAM!


Wins 2-3 slams, I really want to see Marti win the Aus and FO

I also wouldn't mind seeing Seles win a slam and If Wimbledon is what she needs to complete her career slam, then Wimbledon I pick for her.
