Your Tennis Wish(es) for 2006

There was a thread last year (Your greatest tennis wish(es) for 2005) about your wishes for the new year. It’s the one that got me hooked on MTF. Damn.

In that vein, then, tell me what your tennis wishes are for 2006.

Here are a few of mine:

I wish...
for Hewitt to win another slam, preferably the AO.

for Henman to make one last gasp run at a Wimby title.

for Roddick to beat Hewitt in the USO finals.

for Federer to finally receive the attention from the US media he so richly deserves.

for McEnroe to win a match on the “regular” tour.

for Gasquet to stay healthy and challenge for a Top 10 spot.

for Santoro to keep playing...and entertaining us.

for the ATP to actually promote doubles instead of trying to rub it out.

for Nadal to lose those pirate pants.

for youngsters...like Baghdatis, Monfils, Djokovic to really make some noise on the tour.
And finally, for MTFers everywhere...that they be treated to a variety of high quality tennis, be it through local TV coverage or on the net somewhere. I look forward to goofing off in OOP with those that don’t

I love my girls.

Re: Your Tennis Wish(es) for 2006

I wish the doping in tennis was over.

I wish Gael Monfils won Roland Garros.

I wish Juan Martin del Potro won Sopot ATP tournament before he's going to be famous.

I wish David Nalbandian won Wimbledon and took #1 place for the end of the year.

I wish Poland had a player in top 100 after 30 years or something.

I wish Marcelo Rios was back and playing with McEnroe.

I wish Guga and Younes could play a final of US Open.

I wish Michael Ryderstedt from Sweden came for Wrocław ATP Challenger in February.

Amen.

I will burn
And you will die...

Re: Your Tennis Wish(es) for 2006

I want Argentina to win the Davis Cup.
I want to see Nadal beating Federer lots of times.
I wish that Yayo Massa stays uninjured for a while (the whole season hopefully) and returns into the best 100 players in the world. Same to Lapentti (top 50 for him)
I want Nalbandian to win Wimbledon and Gaudio to win Roland Garros.
I want Murray to get far at Wimby and makes the British to start the Murraymania.
I want to see Horna, Monaco winning their first tournament.
I wish that Massu finishes as the best Chilean (top 20 at least)

And no more doping.

AO: Juanqui
RG: Marat
W: Andy
US: Nalba
TMC: Roger

Andre to win the Australian Open or any of the grand slams.

Andre to win the Masters titles that he hasn't won yet.

Nalbandian to win a slam.

Decide what you want. Decide what you are willing to exchange for it.

Re: Your Tennis Wish(es) for 2006

- Coria to win RG (with me there watching)
- Tim to win 2 grand slams
- Roddick to win the remaining Grand Slam (AO probably)
-Gasquet to have a good year, including 1AMS win and a slam semi.
- Henman, Roddick, Coria and Gasquet all ending the year in the top 10.
- Mathieu to finish top 20.
- Doubles, to be treated with more respect.
- USA or France to win the DC.
- Kunitsyn to start doing better , outside of Russia and to improve his ranking so he can make more main draws.
- Murray not living up to supposed potential (absolutely no second weeks at slams for a start).
- A Hewitt/Murray match (Hip, Hip Hewrray), wants this to be on grass in England, so I can watch and get overexcited. (:
- A personal one- for me to make it to as many tournaments as possible, this year. More live tennis!
- Good Health for all players, to make the tour more competitive.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++

Re: Your Tennis Wish(es) for 2006

1) Nadal to take the number 1 spot.
2) Murray to become British number 1.
3) Roddick to win Wimbledon.
4) Federer to have a crap year suffering many losses.
5) Coria to learn how to play again.
6) Mathieu to reach the top 20.
7) Massu to retire from tennis, sparing us the boredom of watching him.
8) Mathieu Montcourt to make a name for himself on the tennis scene.
9) Me to become Roddick's coach.
10) Nadal to win at least 2 slams.
