Here is a place to put specific match predictions after the draws have been made, but since Iva isn't playing this week, I guess that we could post predictions for her 2002 season.


If Iva is not injured and does face Venus Williams early on, she should make the quarters at least (her ranking will once again be back in the top 50)


Similar to Doha

Indian Wells:

Let's hope for an easy draw and Iva should make the third round.


I'll be there for the finals so she better win. Realistically, we should expect her to repeat last year's third round.


Second or third round depending on the draw

Clay-court season:

QFs and SFs, but not a tournament win yet because of lack of confidence.


She should be seeded by this time and I think that she has a good chance to make the fourth round if she gets a good draw.


Second or third round (she will be seeded, but grass is her worst surface).

US Hardcourt Circut:

Maybe a QF, but don't keep your hopes up.

US Open:

Not exactly Iva's favorite tournament. We should be happy if she defends her points from last year.

European Indoors Circut:

Iva's second favorite time of the year. This is when I think she will make a surprise run, upset top players and possibly win a tournament.

Year-end ranking: 18

Nice predictions! I really hope they come true!

A fully fit Iva can do well in Doha and Dubai (if she plays both)...I expect she can definately go QF as u said. Providing she has a good draw of course!

I expect Iva to make her charge in Europe for the clay season...if she can get on some kind of a roll before Paris, then she can do anything!

Heres hoping!

Go Iva!! I think the predictions are quite alright. I do hope Iva may crack the top 20 by the year end.

These predictions are very realistic for Iva this year. I think she can get back into the top 20 and then hopefully go from there. Keep in mind, as well, that this is only her 2nd year playing a full schedule again. She doesn't have too many points to defend in between the season either.

Good luck Iva the Diva!! :bounce: :bounce:
