I hope Myskina.

Really hard to tell. Vesnina could surprise us all if she wins the Gold Coast & knocks out several big names there as well as the AO. I'm just really guessing here but really anyone outside the Top 30 & below could surprise us.

Sammy 4 eva!!!
Dec 27th, 2006, 12:33 AM
I think Stosur will suprise you all!!

Nobody. The top are WAAAAAAAAAAY ahead right now. All will live reasonably according to seeding. :p

Sharapova's_Boy

Viktoriya Azarenka.

She's just way too talented to be where she is in the rankings at the moment. She's surely got to break through soon. :shrug:

Myskina and if Hantuchva can deliver Zurich level again...

I hope Wozniak:)

Vincey!
Dec 27th, 2006, 12:47 AM
I hope wozniak too
I think hantuchova could surprise and maybe Poutchkova and Vesnina

Capriati, Schiavone, Schnyder

I'm hoping Myskina gets it together and will surprise us there. Same for Capriati if she even comes back.

On the men's side, I'm hoping Federer surprises us by losing a match. That'd be a shocker.

I wouldn't be suprised to see Molik suprises a few over the next month or so.

Venus Williams will retire.
Miss Golovin will reach the semi-finals of the Aus Open.
J-J will do some damage, somewhere before March.

I can't wait. :D

Aleks Wozniak will raise a few eyebrows in Australia!!

$ANIA MIRZA

Hayato
Dec 27th, 2006, 02:55 AM
If we guess, then it's not going to be a surprise.

No Name Face
Dec 27th, 2006, 03:14 AM
if we're talking january, then probably lenaD because my expectations couldn't be any lower. :o

*I agree that Molik will suprise some people. Now that she's healthy again :)

*Mirza will hopefully be done with the 'sophomore slump' that often comes after a player has a breakthrough year

*Golovin put together some good tennis in patches ast year, when she was healthy, hopefully she can stay healthy

Ok, Leanne wont win the ASB Classic, but she'll put up one hell of a fight. Just watch for her.

I hope Nastya and Tati surprise. I hope Severine can keep surprising people.

Brett.
Dec 27th, 2006, 05:16 AM
Sophie Ferguson will surprises you all! ;)

So Disrespectful
Dec 27th, 2006, 11:37 AM
I expect Molik will do something in Sydney.

Hantuchova finished 2006 well and could continue on.

I have a feeling that Ivanovic will be playing top 5 tennis after all of the work she has put in. She looked great training with Martina.

Tennis-Chick
Dec 27th, 2006, 11:49 AM
I think Molik, Golovin, Jankovic will suprise us at the start of the season.

Kart
Dec 27th, 2006, 12:07 PM
Sharapova.

In a good way.

LUXXXAS
Dec 27th, 2006, 12:19 PM
Martina Hingis by winning AO and Tokyo ...

Harju.
Dec 27th, 2006, 01:27 PM
I just want to see fully fit Tati for one whole season. The last time it happened was way back in 2004. :(

:inlove:
Dec 27th, 2006, 01:33 PM
Safarova, Safina & Azarenka.

.Andrew.
Dec 27th, 2006, 01:50 PM
Serena & Venus :unsure:
Myskina :rocker:

-Makiri-
Dec 27th, 2006, 01:51 PM

Dec 27th, 2006, 03:58 PM
I hope Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta!!!

Viktymise
Dec 27th, 2006, 04:33 PM
Sprem possibly, she's dumped Bikic and may be working with someone good that we dont know about and could have a great little run at Aus :D lenaD will suprise alot of people if she gets deep into Aus :p not me though

~Shopgirl~
Dec 27th, 2006, 04:50 PM
I think that Samantha Stosur will go far in Australian Open. Quaterfinal maybe.

Jogi
Dec 28th, 2006, 10:49 PM
oh, some replies here

well I say maybe the sisters with an attendance at the AUs-Open ;)

jas_aussie
Dec 28th, 2006, 11:00 PM
I think sammy will be strong at gold coast sydney aus open and tokyo and alicia will do some damage i hope!!

LudwigDvorak
Dec 28th, 2006, 11:04 PM
Kournikova will be a wildcard into the Australian and will make it to the final, losing to Hingis 1 and 2. :-o

LefandePatty
Dec 28th, 2006, 11:06 PM
Jarmila Gajdosova.

Dec 28th, 2006, 11:11 PM
if we're talking january, then probably lenaD because my expectations couldn't be any lower. :o

:lol:

That made me laugh because I JUST had a dream last night that she was playing Hingis at the AO. It was a semifinal match and I remember Mary Carillo saying something about how Lena SUCKS on rebound Ace, and that she was the surprise of the tournament...but then I woke up. Not sure who won, Martina was ahead something like 6-2, 3-0...but I think LenaD was about to make her move ;)

Anyway, My predictions for the beginning of the year (muahahah): :devil:

Martina Hingis will win 2 of her 1st 4 events, beating Ana I. along the way in a thrilling 3 set match (not before the semis)!

Myskina will win a doubles title and make at least a final in January

Jelena Jankovic and Anna C. will both win titles before March 1st!

Serena will win a title

Venus will play before ST.Valentine's Day!!! :woohoo:

So mote it be...

I have just seen 1 more thing: Makiri will win more than 60% of her singles matches this year :wavey: and at least 1 GS doubles title with Masha...they MUST PLAY!!!! (muahahah)...

Jelena Janković at first :) :worship:

I think that Maria Kirilenko will have far better season than 2006., but nothing major...

Paola Suarez is going to say goodbye folks at the end of 2007., and I'm positive about her making some upsets and getting into top 30, or better :)

Ana Ivanović, if she stops thinking - First ball after the serve must be a WINNER :rolleyes: Plus shaping up her's serve, to get it in more times. It's not all in power Ana :o

Dec 28th, 2006, 11:24 PM
Aleksandra Wozniak if she continues playing like in her '06 season end ;)

AJZ.
Dec 29th, 2006, 12:08 AM
Ai will surprise people, because she won't have a horrible start like 2005 & 2006 :)

plantman
Dec 29th, 2006, 02:27 AM
Martina will capture an AO trophy! She know's where her game stacks up against the others now. Her renewed commitment, much improved serve, and her awesome shot selection abilities will take her to the top once again this year.

Elena D. will make a move as well. I'm betting she received some advice on the only thing keeping her from becoming one of the all time best. Her serve is the only part of her game keeping her from doing so. It would be a damn shame if she hasn't!

Dec 29th, 2006, 02:32 AM
Hopefully one of the Canucks, don't really care which one ! :D

ctan88
Dec 29th, 2006, 02:33 AM
Im thinking Myskina will do well in Auckland, perhaps by making the final or winning the entire tourney ... but then again you never know with Anastasia! AnnaC will hopefully win Hobart, and Martina should also make some noise as well!
