FAIL
Both Serena and Karo Pliskova lost in Aus Open R3 already 馃う
And both with horrible performances, moving very bad and slow. And serve was weaker than normal.

"Total surprise" is also lame. Name a player!

Always predicting Serena as the winner in the Slams is so boring
... and wrong too.
Serena flops now at Slams, is slower, older, serves worse, nervous, mentally weaker.

I expect a final #1 Barty vs Halep or Kerber.
I already said most of this before you did. Unlike him, at least I have one player alive in my picks and it's the probable winner of the tournament. Just like I predicted for Adelaide.

I wouldn't normally do this, but since I was told here by someone during Wimbledon last year that my predictions were also terrible:

It must be great to be terrible at GS predictions, but still enjoy such a cushy gig.
Why? Making good predictions isn鈥檛 how you become a journalist.
You guys are awfully judgment over something like predictions. The three most popular choices in the WWW poll are Serena, Naomi, and Karolina.

lol @ people clowning on Wetheim....Serena vs Pliskova isn't really a bad guess....it's just incredibly hard to get the GS finalists right in WTA where the upsets are lot more frequent than ATP...even the so called experts on this forum wouldn't have predicted how this draw opened up.
