Predictions by Dan Sanoff:

Early Favorite: Serena Williams. French fans don't know anything.
Sleeper: Kim Clijsters. Outlasted Serena, Venus and Jenny at French Open.
Buzz on the Rest: Jennifer Capriati (Still popular, but not having a Williams-type year); Venus Williams (Takes backseat to Serena)

Early Favorite: Pete Sampras. He's got the retirement-sentimental thing going.
Sleeper: Andre Agassi. If not Pete, then his arch-rival.
Buzz on the Rest: Juan Carlos Ferrero (French Open pub great, but can he compete in votes, not on clay?); Lleyton Hewitt (Bad boy's rep won't help him here)

Well, I must say they're really going out on a limb with that choice of players, aren't they? But tennistically, Serena and Agassi should rightfully scoop up the awards.

Jun 14th, 2003, 07:29 PM
Serena and Andre should win.

Jun 14th, 2003, 07:38 PM
Serena and Andre all the way...

Jun 14th, 2003, 08:57 PM
Jennifer and Hewitt! Jen cause im biased and Hewitt cause he's fine!

Jun 14th, 2003, 09:21 PM
Kim and Venus well okay I can understand them being on there! but jenn? she has not won a tournament in forever whereas another Belgian that they left off has won ROLAND GARROS and two tier 1's, two tier II's and beaten Jenn on hard courts. :rolleyes:

Tennistically, eh? Been reading some Ferrero interviews there, Hendouble? ;)

Of course Serena should win, and the mens should really only between Hewitt and Andre, with the old guy just edging Hewitt out.
