It wasn't really serious. Impossible picking US open winners this far out.

Re: Early Predictions For Grand Slams...

I see. You were only hoping that you could later say that you got at least one right.

i'll give 2 names for each, so i won't jinx anything i'm not really going out on a limb like some of you, but i'd be surprised if one of the players i pick right now doesn't win the respective slam. unless there are injuries, heaven forbid.
australian- men: federer/ agassi; women: venus/clijsters (add monica if she asks for a wc)

french- men: ferrero/federer; women: seles/henin

wimbeldon- men: federer/roddick (maybe mark); women- venus/serena

uso- men: roddick/federer/agassi; women: serena/seles.

i just remembered how far away the us open is... usually i can have some sort of an idea, but the uso winner is usually whoever is playing best just before the tournament... this can't be said really for the other slams, as for the aus-- the warmups are indicative of nothing, rg- no ne ever really dominates the clay season, wimbledon- a lot of guys don't play warmups...

Re: Early Predictions For Grand Slams...

Dream, you are dreaming if you think either Henman or Dent has a decent chance at a Slam.

Re: Early Predictions For Grand Slams...

lol!! I definitely think Taylor has potential to win a slam, but he's gotta stay healthy and stop double-faulting SO MUCH! But he's shown he can put a bunch of good matches together and he's also shown he can beat the big boys. But I guess we'll seeeee!

and hey.... I got a package in the mail today
