Default re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Anything but a del Potro vs Federer final will be a suprise imo.

Tipsy lost to a qualifier earlier, so that has made it easier for Del Po to win Vienna. Berdych beat Almagro and will face Tsonga in the final of Stockholm

Because it's nearing the end of the season, and i'm bored atm, i thought i'd do some 2013 predictions. Starting with my faves.

Tsonga:
- Jo will remain consistent throughout the year
- Jo will make the Wimbledon semi finals again
- Jo will put in a masterfull display against one of the big 4 in a grand slam again
- Jo will reach the Quarter Finals at the US Open and Aussie Open, but will fall early at RG
- Jo will reach a masters final
- Jo will finish either 6th or 7th in the rankings next year

Del Potro
- Del Po will show some of his 2009 form
- Del Po will reach the semis at least in the Australian open
- Del Po will win a slam next year (bold prediction) (Us Open or Aussie open. Maybe RG if Nadal is poor)
- Del Po will reach the semi finals at RG before losing to Nadal or Djokovic
- Del Po will finish the year as Number 4 or 5
- Del Po will straight set one of the big 4 in his winning grand slam


Shvedova

- Slava will be top 20 after Australian Open and will remain there until RG, where she will fall out of the top 20 because she doesn't defend her points. But she'll make up for it at Wimbledon by making the Quarter Finals there, and will re-enter the top 20
- Slava will win a smaller tournament
- Slava will bagel a top 10 player at a Grand slam
- Slava will fluctuate in and out of the top 20 throughout the first half or so of the year, But will become a consistent top 20 player after the US Open
- Slava will break top 15 at some point
- Slava will finish next year inside the top 20

Nishikori
- Kei will win another tournament or 2
- Kei will reach the quarter finals of a grand slam
- Kei will finish inside the top 10 next year
- Kei will upset a player at the Aussie open (Maybe Ferrer or Berdych)
- Kei will be relatively injury free throughout the season
- Kei will have a good masters run at some point (reaching the semis)

General
- No mens player will win 2 grand slams next year
- Sharapova will not defend her title at Roland Garros. There will be a maiden slam winner at that tournament
- Azarenka will win another slam, defeating Serena along the way, and will be YE no. 1
- Raonic (like Nishikori) will break the top 10 at some point
- Djokovic will be YE. no 1 in mens
- Jankovic and Hewitt will retire. Del Po will be the one to retire Hewitt (Just like Roddick and Safin )
- One grand slam final in the mens will be 1 sided
- Radwanska will not have a great year, and will fall down to the lower half of the top 10
- Venus Williams will have a good year and will finish inside the top 15
- Klizan will break the top 20
- Monaco will fall out of the top 10 and won't return


---------------------------------------------------------------------

Some may be a little bold, but i'm choosing to be a bit optimistic regarding my favourites about next year

Post yours if you want
