well i wish so much my dreams could come true...Like this:

AO: Marat Safin
RG: Marat Safin
Wimbly: Marat Safin
US: Marat Safin

But as i know Marat and i think this dream will never come true here is my guess:

AO: Lleyton Hewitt - I hate him but it's life....
RG: Guga....yes, always Guga
Wimbly: I think Federer has chances
US Open: Marat Safin - At least one, right?

I love you Guga, but dont win Roland Garros again.... BORING, share in the wealth.

Safin should win one, but he should have won one this year as well. I don't think Federer will be ready. I don't know about Ferrero.

I think Hewitt will take home another one or two, before it hits peoples damn heads that they can beat this guy.

Magic parallels between careers of Pete Sampras and Marat Safin will continue further. And just like Sampras in 1993, Safin will win 2 Slams next year and will finish year as #1. Hewitt will win one Slam, the last one of his career, and will finish year as #2.

AO - Haas
FO - Safin
Wimbledon - Henman

That was a joke.

Wimbledon - Rusedski

That was a joke too.

Wimbledon - Hewitt

Did Pete end the year number 3 2 years after winning the US Open too - he did didn't he? *scratches head*

Weird.

Anyhow - I can't be objective. But for the ones I can be objective for, I will try.


Australian Open - Marat or Andre or Haas
Roland Garros - *cough**sputter*

RG - Ferrero (The choker tag will be dropped ;))
Wimbledon - Federer (His volley will get him there)
USO - Marat (New love to inspire him)

Hmmmm I'm not to good in predicting and usually bring bad luck to the one I predict...

....but I hope that wimbledon will win the one player with the most votes so far!! Of course I wouldn't mind if he could take any other slam "en route" as well ;)

Just gooooo for it ;)

Naaa I'm not letting out a name couse then it'll never become reality - I'm speaking from experience ;)

Regarding the next Wimbledon there are two huge question marks. One of them is named Patrick. The other is named Goran. If any of them would be anywhere close to their best form, it would basket our W predictions..

Dare I say... if he doesn't retire...*gulp* Pete? :o

I mean sure his part 2 years have been nothing without one tournament, but really.

All we need is Rusedksi to open up his gaping trap again, and next think you know the tally is at 15 :o

My problem is whenever there is a big exam, my worst subject comes top, so whenever I make a prediction, the result ends up the opposite way. I don't want to curse my favourite players, so here's my prediction:
Aussie Open---Hewitt(His record in AO)
Roland Garros---Kuerten(I like Guga, but time for someone else)
Wimbledon---Sampras(Enough is enough)
US Open---Hewitt(He may be sick again)

he can defeat anyone right now. And he has won in indoors too!

Hmm I notice a lot of folks are discounting Hewitt's ability to win more than one slam. I would not recommend it. He has a a tendency to pretty much defy all expectations. Plus he has stated that he wants more slams and as we have seen this year when Hewitt wants something well........

It would be interesting if Marat win 1 or 2 slams(Wimby/FO) and Hewitt wins 1 or 2 of the others just to have a serious rivalry finally on the men's tour. Right now they are tied at 4 wins each having met 8 times.

However, what I'd really like to see is Richard Gasquet or some other unknown teenager win the USO and pretty much blow everyone's mind. :bounce: I would really , really love that. It would just screw all the "experts" who frankly are talking out of their a***s most of the time anyway particularly when it comes to the USO.

I hope:
Australia: Moya or Lleyton
French: Moya or Cannas
Wim: Patrick (if he's back) or Roger
US: No sampras or Agassi in the final.;) http://www.smilies.org/basesmilies/chub.gif
Don't think Guga can win French next year. I think Lleyton can win at least one. Moya and Roger is capable of winning one.

Discounting his ability would be saying "Hewitt will not win more than one slam next year". Picking other people merely suggests that one thinks that OTHER players are also good enough to win slams.

Sheesh.

Shocking how many people picked Roger to win Wimbledon after such a horrid 2002...interesting...

JCF also the major pick for FO.

Guess the hardcourts are the most unpredictable...

Other random thoughts...No one seemed to predict Lleyton's free fall...

Lots of Agassi picks for Aussie...

Marat's unpredictability left posters wanting...

Here my predictions:

AO: Agassi may be in a slump these days but i think he's the most experimented here, i think he has
a good chance to win a last slam, Hewitt will have too much pressure on his shoulders and i don't see Sampras come back quickly. Not to mention the mugginess of Roddick this year and the unpredictability of Marat.

RG: Are you kidding me? Ferrero by a mile, Guga is injured , Coria is the only one who have a shot, but a really slim one.

Wimbly: Federer had the most potential on grass, he's doing shit but he will show up, believe me, i have Roddick as an outsider though.

US Open: Tough one, i will take a risk by betting on A-Rod, he will be in front of his public, his time will probably come.

I don't think anyone made 4/4 since at least 2007, no?

2011: 1% chance of 4/4
2010: 2% (Nadal who take the three lasts slams and Federer take the AO and not Wimbly or the USO, very unlikely)
2009: 0% (Nobody thought Fed would take the FO, Nadal take tha AO but lost in the French, Del Po in the USO) :fool:
2008: 8% (Unlikely but there was not shocking result)
2007: 40% Predictable
2006: 40% Predictable
2005: 8% Few had seen Nadal in the French but Safin in the AO was a pretty big odd.
2004: 0% Fed 3/4, Gaudio for the French...


Where is the "2012 predictions" thread? Some must have 3/3 right no, Djokovic is the best in the AO, Nadal in the French and Fed in Wimbly despite this last couple of years, the prediction was dooable, let's see what will happen in the USO

People tend to think in a very short way.

Roddick was average in 2002, so it was absolutely ridiculous for the average tard to think he could be better the year after. In 2009, Nadal was finished, in 2011 it was Federer.....

Watch the thread in early 2002 "Sampras and Agassi are finished, they have to retire..."

Federer was finished, now he won Wimbledon and he will win 25 slams :rolleyes:

he was sort of in murrays situation in a way
so much talent and expectations and then he just cant pull it out in the end

by the end of 2002 everyone wanted him to win one- but there was a serious worry he wuold choke with the pressure

There was many Safin-tards but it was really less agressive.

The Federer curse of record created many glory hunters and many haters too, the Nadal's emergence polarized even more the opinions, everybody started to talk about records... All the haters created by Federer jumped on the Nadal-horse and, this war seems to never end now.
