things you would like to see happen on the tour which would be good for the game

1. agassi to win his 60th career title before he retires

2. agassi to win monte carlo and hamburg to make him the only player to achieve a "career masters series"

3. federer to be only the 3rd man to do a calendar slam

4. hewitt to finally get an aussie open title

5. venus and serena to tame down their arrogance and accept that a player beat them and that they didn't beat themselves.

6. clijsters to finally win a slam (any slam!)

7. federer to win gold in the 2008 olympics

Re: things you would like to see happen on the tour which would be good for the game

10. For a native-language Spanish speaker to win Wimbledon. I think it would be great to show to show that maybe it is not just clay court success vs. success on all other surfaces anymore.

11. Kind of carrying on that theme- would love for Nadal to win GS titles outside of the French during his career.

12. Hope that Federer gets all 4 GS titles during his career.

13. Hope for Marcos Baghdatis to become a big, succesful presensce the tour.

14. Would love for a solid young American player to come along so that Roddick is not really the only US player with success. (Though still wish Andy success- just don't want him to have to carry the mantle of US men's tennis on his own.) Personaly, would like that player to be Scoville Jenkins.

15. Nalby to one day win a GS title.

16. And file this under pipe dream- men's tennis to become more prominant on the US sporting landscape.

17. James Blake to win more ATP titles.

18. Coria to one day win Roland Garros.

19. Guga to win another title.

20. Andy Murray to become a succesful player for the Birts.

21. File under pipe dream #2- Henman to win at Wimbly.

22 Federer beaten by a better player aka Marat Safin AO05

23Marat Safin fulfilling expectations never?!

24Russia wins both davis and fed cup

25Marat Marat Marat Marat always good for the game

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

27. Argentina to win the Davis Cup.

28. I agree with Clara about a native Spanish speaker winning Wimbledon - preferably David Nalbandian

29. Roger Federer to complete the Grand Slam once in in his career.

30. A longer break between French Open amd Wimbledon so that those who have been most successful at Roland Garros will still have a decent time prepare and compete to a high enough level.

Supporting Djoković, Tipsarević, Soderling, Tursunov, Youzhny, Cilić and quite a few more

38. For Donald Young or Scoville Jenkins to be the first black player that is not Arthur Ashe to win a Grand Slam. It's too late for James Blake.

Duct tape Brad Gilbert, Mary Carillo, Patrick McEnroe, and company's mouths, and then put people in charge of programming at ESPN, NBC, etc. who know something about tennis and can get back from a commercial break as the changeover is ending and not right before the next one.
