This is a new version of the 2008 predictions thread - which was meant to be multi-choice, but wasn't. Following voting in the earlier thread, (few votes for Bartoli or Jankovic) I've made a couple of small changes.

This time you've got as many choices as you like. Which is likely to occur in 2008?

Suggestions:
Jankovic will be top 3
Hantuchova will be top 5
And some doubles prediction:)

Justine will fall off form, winning only 1 slam or less.
Kuznetsova will win a slam or Olympics.
Maria will win more than one slam.

Justine will win AO and FO
Amelie will return to form, win wimbledon again
Maria will win the USO
Olympics to me is open, it's really all mental at the olympics when playing for a medal

The only thing that is constant is change, therefore:

Justine will drop level, New comer will win slam/olympics, Venus will win slam/olympics outside wimby and sharapova & mauresmo will regain form.

I tend to feel Justine may not be able to keep her present domination throughout next year. If Ana can conquer her nerves she may get close to a slam title. Mauresmo seems to have vanished from the radar. Maria, on her YEC form SHOULD win a slam. Olympics should be interesting if everyone is there

2008 will go down in history as the year Elena D. began her reign as Supreme Tennis Goddess of the Universe.

(She is currently merely Supreme Tennis Demigoddess of the Universe).

Elena has been looking dangerous at times this year - but not consistently.

Ok Justine will win the Golden Slam! She will face Maria in the finals of AO FO and USO, and Face Vee in Wimby and Ree in the Olympics. Ok I am just wishing but I hope she dose finally win wimby.

Many people seem to think Justine's run will continue.

I feel like Justine is bound to get injured soon, she's been too healthy for too long. Her form will drop, Maria will win a slam, Serena will win a slam, Venus will win a slam.

Going into next season, I think Henin will be feeling confident at the start of the year, but like Serena! and others on this board, I don't believe that her great form will last forever. Shes bound to have problems with injuries sooner or later. So while I wouldn't say her 2008 will suck, it won't be as dominant as 2007. Madrid was a boast of confidence for Sharapova and hopefully this will translate into good things for 08. If she improves her fitness and gets her serve back, I see Maria having a good chance to win both Austrailian and US Opens, the Williams family will take another wimbledon crown unless they get injured in which case I see Sharapova or Henin taking it, and maybe Henin will be dethroned (in a shocking upset) at the FO.

Kuznetsova will win a slam or Olympics - No
Maria will win a slam or Olympics - Yes
Maria will win more than one slam - No
Serena will win at least one slam - Yes
Venus will win a slam - Maybe
Nicole Vaidisova will win a slam - No

At the moment 53% of respondents think Justine's dominant form will continue compared to 24% who think it won't. Interesting.

Other strong views:

39% think Maria wil win a slam next year but not more.
34% have faith that Mauresmo will blast back into the Top Five.

She's so at ease, grounded, and happy in her surroundings that it can only bring great results in 08! I think 07 was just a glimpse to what she'll accomplish in the next few years!

So based on YEC form Maria should win a slam, but Justine will fall apart. You aren't biased at all.

These two are most likely IMO.

I didn't say Justine will "fall apart." I said her domination might not continue.
