I've got a couple of things in mind.

Monica comes back strong to delight her fans and everyone.

At least one player threatens the Willams/Belgian domination. It doesn't matter who it is.

The Williams sisters stay healthy and thus are able to play more tournaments producing more meetings on a variety of surfaces with the Belgians.

Venus and Capriati finally face off.

All the ten players plus Monica, Mary and Anna stay healthy the entire season and play all the major tournaments.

And of course Hingis comes back!

Less injuries to the Willis, Lindsay, Jenny, Momo, esp. Anna K. Continued progress from Nastya, Alyona, Nadya, Vera, Lina, Lena B, Masha, Dinara Sveta, Casanova, MGM and Myri. More WC in the GS-Qual for the junior players. Then at least they have an extra tourney. The young players are needed, because most players on the silver list have had more off than good performances.

Venus gets ore competitive against Serena, at least as competitive as her sister.

More top players take part in Fed Cup.

Now this is a nice thread! :bounce: Couldn't agree more with all of you! The magic word: variety.... let get all sorts of different spices on the table!

I agree, this is a nice thread.
Monica wins Wimbledon, Tatiana Panova and all my favourites who haven't won a title win their first title, Venus beats Serena every time they play, less injuries to everyone. :D Also, Martina Navratilova wins a medal at the Olympics.

to make 2004 a great year for me personally is for the wiliams sisters and seles to come back with a bang.

davenport and capriati to win a grandslam (unlikely i know!!)

maleeva and pierce to get back into the top 20!

and for majoli, lucic and kournikova to get their act together and win tournaments!!!!

and a british women to win matches in the main draws!! :D

No, I didn´t mean in an arrogant way. I meant to say that with the williamses back that there is gonna be more good/great matches.

I´m looking forward to more Belgians vs Williamses clashes, because right now they are the best players.

venus and serena to face off in oz final (to prove their both back) with venus winning.
Then Hennin H beating Serena in the final of the french - Lindsay winning Wimbledon over Venus and Capriati beating serena in the USOpen final - My dream 04 also would include mary and anna back at the top level pulling off alota upsets.Hope Monica comes back strong too ---- I think I want too much :)

--Monica wins a slam then retires

--Jennifer gets herself at the same level as the Belgians/Williamses

--Maria S. cracks the top ten and qualifies for championships

--Anna K stays consistently in the top twenty and contends for titles (IMAGINE the TV ratings:o )

--Williams and the Belgians continue their form, but have more enticing matches against eachother (Juju vs. Rena is fun, and SOME Juju vs. Kimmie are fun, but the other two sucked last year)

My 2004 Top 10 Predictions btw
1. Serena Williams
2. Justine Henin-Hardenne
3. Venus Williams
4. Kim Clijsters
5. Jennifer Capriati

6. Amelie Mauresmo
7. Maria Sharapova
8. Lindsay Davenport
9. Monica Seles
10. Jelena Dokic

Serena, Lindsay, Venus, Monica, Jennifer, Daniela, Justine and Amelie all come back strong and injury-free.

Kim and Venus win a major. Bonus if Serena defends one of her grand slams.

Venus and Serena defend their doubles gold medal and Serena takes the gold in singles.

Maria wins a tier 1 and reaches a grand slam QF. Finishes the year top 15.

One of the titleless wins a title.

Chanda stops folding like an accordian when she plays a top ten player.

Venus, Serena Lindsay, Monica, Anna HEALTHY!!

Jelena Dokic back to her winning ways...Anna getting some confidence in her comeback...

With all these players in the mix 2004 will be amazing...

Everyone to be healthy and for all the young American girls to start doing well. I would also like to see Ai continue her good form. I hope Daniela and Jelena can gain some confidence at the begining of the year. I want all of the top players to win a slam....to bad there are only four because I have about 10 people that I want to win one with only about 4 of them having a chance. Oh...and of course for Sammy to win a title and crack the top 50:)

gmak
Nov 25th, 2003, 09:58 PM
i would love to see kim on the GS trophy list :drool:

same for amelie :hearts:

masha reaching GS quarters and finishing the year in top15

eleni finding her form again

and nadia winning her first title ;)

Cutura
Nov 26th, 2003, 12:05 AM
I'd like Dokic getting back to top 10, and playing for Serbia and Montenegro in FedCup
Jelena Jankovic getting in top 50, and qualifies for Olympics.
Ana Ivanovic, best junior to get to top 100-200
Katarina Srebotnik to get in top 20- where she deserves to be!!!!!

Dokic,Jankovic, Ivanovic, Srebotnik - love u all

... and my wishlist for 2004 continues!
Babsi Schett should also find back to her form again as her 2003 results were kinda disappointing.

Momo wins a slam ... doesn't matter which one. At this stage, I'd almost settle for the YEC or an Olympic gold medal.

France defends the Fed Cup.

Anna K comes back, stays uninjured, and wins a tournament, however small. Surely there's one that Nagyova can spare her.

Dani recovers from whatever problems are bothering her.

Juju wins her share of matches against the sisters and wins another slam.

Kim also wins a slam to get that monkey off her back.

The sisters stay healthy and manage a reasonably full schedule. I'll allow them one slam between them ... preferably to Venus, who deserves one over li'l sis by now. :angel:

Nov 26th, 2003, 10:45 AM
:)Monica comes back
:)Lindsay wins a slam
:DTammy wins a tourney or makes the Quarter finals @ a slam.
:) The Williams sisters make a successful return and have classic battles with the Belgian Girls.
The Italians rising the rankings
The Australians making a move towards the top 20

I wish,
Mary comes back beating the Williams and the Belgians (and get slimmer).
Anna being healthy all year round and finally win a tier 1 tournament.
Kim cuts down her schedule.
Jennifer win another slam.
Monica beat all those overrated players.
Maria grunts louder.
Daniela has her unique outfit.
