The 2007 yes-no prediction game

If anybody wants to play this game : give 15 yes-no answers to the following questions till next Tuesday, and I am going to keep score of your success during the year. For every correct answer you get 1 point. The person with the most points at the end of 2007 will be the winner. And by the way don’t worry about jinxing and anti-jinxing, those “techniques” obviously didn’t help in 2006 either.
  1. Will Kim lose in the first (second if she has a bye) round of any tournament? (retirements don’t count)
  2. Will she finally manage to leave for Belgium from Australia without a limp?
  3. Will she win a grand slam tournament?
  4. Will she attend the Belgium – Australia Davis cup tie? (one match is enough)
  5. Will Brian be persuaded by the organizers to do something special for Valentine’s day in Antwerpen? (the date of her first match)
  6. Will Kim play in all four grand slam tournaments?
  7. Will she beat Justine in a tournament? (if they don’t meet, no is the correct answer)
  8. Will any match of hers last longer than 2h15min? (injury timeouts included)
  9. Will Kim win a Tear I tournament? (slams,YEC not included)
  10. Will she get married?
  11. Will Justine be at the wedding?
  12. Will Kim have less than five farewell events (speeches, cakes, presents at tournaments from the organizers and so on) during the year?
  13. Will she qualify for YEC?
  14. Will she play at YEC?
  15. Just to be sure that nobody gets zero points – Will there be an interview (transcript, audio or video) in English without the, you know, those two words she keeps on saying?

Re: The 2007 yes-no prediction game

Arina’s_fan I have noticed that you have two number 13-s and no 15. If it is only a number mix-up and the answers are as you meant them to be, then leave it this way and I’ll treat the last two as answers to the nr. 14 and 15 questions.
