I voted for Conchita.

Arantxa & Conchita always have good clay season, lets hope the same this year.

I think Angeles Cristina Gala & Marta have chances to make good results.

Mariajo and Nuria will have to play lot of qualys.... what a pity!

with Magui you never know and Vivi seems to be more conentrated in her doubles career than in singles so...

Anabel.... :sad:

Maybe we will get some surpises from Eva, as she will play lot of tournaments for the first time as a good ranked player she is now :)

Maybe Maria Antonia makes a super come back :drool: who knows? Lets wish it

And finally maybe we could se players like Ainhoa or Conchita M-G or why not Lourdes and company making the "step" as Eva did last year.

Anyway it will be an interesting clay court season :)

Of course, Conchi Martinez but I'm expecting Marta wining 2 tournaments, Arantxa as well, Medina 1 at least, and a Spanish surprise whose name is Marta Fraga.....
By the way why not all Spanish in clay season finals????:hearts:

I think we´ll see Arantxa play even more Tier iii/iv tournaments than last year in an attempt to win back some ranking points. She´s entered Mexico city, plus has to defend at least Portugal and Madrid.

ok; I'm off work with a broken hand and VERY bored, so thought I'd dig up some old predictions and see how it worked out.

Below are win/loss records on clay 2002, Main draw matches Tier 1-5 and Grand Slams only.

Gala Leon Garcia 6/11
Conchita Martinez 8/9
Magüi Serna 17/8
Marta Marrero 2/10 (hard to believe one of these was the thrashing of ASV at RG)
Christina Torrens Valero 10/13
Arantxa Sanchez Vicario 12/11
Mª Jose Martinez 0/2
Angeles Montolio 7/9 (she was at 7/0 at one point :eek: )
Virginia Ruano Pascual 14/12
Nuria Llagostera 0/4

So the winner was...Magüi Serna! :eek:

Well just Magüi & Angeles won a title on clay, so it is not a surprise at all.

Anyway these stats change a lot if you include qualifying and Fed Cup.

I meant its a surprise considering only 3 of the 30 who responded to the poll reckoned Magüi would be best.

spicey: um...an "accident" ;) broke my little finger in 2 places and dislocated the knuckle. They had to operate and put pins in :mad:

I cant play tennis for 4-5 months :(

Sorry to hear, Jon :eek: though I can figure out what kind of accident you've been involved in:devil: :devil:

Well, you can always use your other hand (for surfing the web, I mean of course :p )
