Smile It's crystal ball time! - once again (game)

Since itís the start of a new season and for some strange reason I tend to post prediction games at this time of the year - here is another one
For every correct answer you get a point, 22 is the maximum, and at the end of the year we will have a winner. So lets see how good you are...

  1. In which month will Kimís baby be born?
  2. Will any other male player whose name isnít Federer or Nadal win a slam (yes or no)?
  3. Will Hewitt reach the quarterfinals of the Australian open?
  4. How many letters will Kimís daughterís name consist of? (Is this sentence correct? Please tell me how it is said properly if it isnít)
  5. Name the female player (if any) who will be first to beat Henin in 2008 (retirements donít count)
  6. The two winners of the Olympic games will be: (women, men)
  7. Will Jankovic and Murray play together again at Wimbledon? (they have to start at least one match)
  8. At which position in the standings will basketball Bree end the regular season? (for those who donít follow this, just pick a number between 1 and 10 )
  9. Will Bree reach the finals of play-offs in basketball?
  10. Name the four female winners of the slams (AO,FO,Wimb.,USO)
  11. How many of the womenís Grand slam finals will have a third set? (0 Ė 4)
  12. How many tournaments will Davenport win this year?
  13. Will Federer have more than 4 losses in regular ATP tournaments?
  14. Will Vaidisova finally reach a tier II (or a higher one) tournament final?
  15. How many girls will qualify for the first time for YEC (only the first eight on the race list count, those who make it because of retirements - donít)
  16. Will we see Kim Clijstersí name in a main draw of a regular WTA tournament?
  17. How many times will the main umpire of the menís Grand slam finals be a female? ( 0 - 4 )
  18. Will I finally get a salary raise this year?

I really like Mauresmo, but the day Amelie Mauresmo wins Roland Garros is the day Kim comes back to the tour and wins a Golden Slam. We all want it to happen, but the probability is slim. But you never know!
