Also, it would be nice to see new girls cracking top 20, new fresh faces and some interesting comebacks. :)

My wish would be for Ana to play top 10 level of tennis. When I say that, I don't mean only two or three times a year. Like, I want to see it from her more consistently. She'll need to put on some weight and get stronger during the off-season to do this, however.

Nov 10th, 2012, 02:25 AM
Uhhhh Maria wins all 4 slams, Miami, and the YEC.

Nov 10th, 2012, 02:59 AM
Li na wins another GS (preferably Us Open).
Samugtha Robotsur drops out of the top 20 and chokes in a final of a mug tournament (her only final of the year)
Angelique Kerber stays in top 5 and wins a GS (beating Errani on the way).
Shitra Craptova drops out of the top 20 and loses in second round at every GS (it's very possible for this mindless ballbasher).
Venus staying more or less healthy (very difficult for her) and winning Wimbledon for the last time (why not?).
Peng Shuai finally wins a title, defeating a good player in final and comes back in top 30 and even higher.
Julio Hypeges drops out of the top 50 and loses at first or second round in every tournament to keep her sucking intact.
Zarbine Lisucki drops out of the top 50 and loses at first round to Cadantu at AO and Cohen at Wimbledon.
Roberta Vinci keeps improving her GS results and gives more bagels at Serbian players.
Caravane Rezai hits less unforced errors, buy a brain and wins more matches (very difficult and unlikely that one).

And a lot of surprises!

1) Jelena Jankovic goes on a tear and shockingly wins the Australian Open. They test her and she's positive for nandrolone ala Thunderous. Turns out, she's pregnant for real!
2) Svetlana pulls a Mary Pierce and wins the French Open.
3) Venus wins Wimbledon after getting sick of Serena claiming all the glory. While she's accepted the fact that Ree will be a greater GOAT than her, she cant accept that she's not won in any category. So she comes out full throttle and wins Wimby, taking her one up.
4) Serena wins the USO after being completely decent all tournament long despite all sorts of dubious calls against her. After winning, she proceeds to tell haters to go fuck themselves.
5) Agatha makes the AO final beating Azarenka and Sharapova along the way.
6) Serena makes the final of the FO while Sharapova falls in the first round to Svetlana.
7) Serena makes the final of Wimby after double bagelling Sharapova in the quarters.
8) Agatha makes the final of the USO proving herself to be one of the better hardcourters of the year.

1)Tamira, Slava, Yanina to be solidly in the top 20.
2) Li Na to be more consistent.

I only have a single small wish:

Greta Arn playing another full season, hopefully injury free and going deep in one or the other tournament.

Nov 10th, 2012, 11:14 PM
Venus to win a Slam!

Nov 11th, 2012, 01:16 AM
-Sharapova wins Miami and Li wins Beijing.
-Wozniacki, Sharapova and Li each win one slam.
-I'd give Aga Radwanska one as well if it weren't for the fact that in case Wozniacki, Sharapova or Li don't win it I'd like to see Serena win the FO because the crowd there gives her no respect.
-Good health for Venus and back into the top 10.
-For Sorana Cirstea winning a big tournament - say a premier mandatory or a premier5. Also some appearances in the second week of slams and a career high ranking.
-Another title for Kirsten Flipkens.
-Sharapova beats Serena at least once. Doesn't matter where or when.
-Wozniacki back into the top five.

The odds are against some (or even most) of these happening, but not to such a degree that they are completely impossible (I hope not anyway).

Nov 11th, 2012, 01:18 AM
Aga wins GS.
Ula wins WTA tournament.

Nov 11th, 2012, 09:12 AM
