Too bad for Maria that never happens in the WTA!
I'd love to see Aga rule them all!
I suspect that wasn't the trophy...
It would be very refreshing to see someone who doesn't just try to crush the ball all the time walk away with the trophy this time. Will still have to root for Ivanovic in the next round match because I can never not root for her, but if Ana fails to take down ARad, I'll be going for Aga all the way.
Radwanska I think will win.
from youtube? really?!
it didn't happen in 3 of the last 4 big titles-wimbly,og, us and yec.
Serena beats Radwanska in the final.
Venus' first serve completely through her rhythm off, not to mention her UF errors.
The Venus of a few years back is not the same Venus of today. I'm still of the opinion Sugarpova cannot get past Serena's serve and groundstrokes. We shall wait and see.
When I first saw this thread, I thought no way will Maria ever take this title. Then I watched her beat Venus last night. It was part Venus not playing well and part Maria not letting her play well. She was scary good. I've never seen this Maria! Now I understand the hype. If she plays like that against Vika or Serena, she very well could take the title. I hope she doesn't, of course. I hope she plays at this level and Serena plays just a little better for an epic quality final. I'm going to start visualizing it now.
Negative. If Sharapova plays twice as well as she did against Venus, she will still not win a game off Serena - even if Serena is having an off day.
Well, I would enjoy that as well!
My prediction is coming closer and closer. again I had a vision last night.
Did you consider visiting a shrink?
No, but these visions come to me when I least expect it. I saw her--maria making her speech after accepting the aussie open trophy last night.
yeah... looks like sharapova will win this slam.
Heck even Brad Gilbert picking Maria Sharapova. and he hasn't even been in my dreams yet.
Well her chances went from about 5% to 40% tonight alone as she was never winning while Serena was in the draw. I would still say Azarenka is the slight favorite though.
percentage or favorite has no role when you have the future in your head and dreams.
I would bet a substantial amount of money that LI Na will beat Sharapova, Li Na is one of the very few women on tour that moves well, plays proper tennis with proper strokes, and hits the ball PURE...
Very similar to Clijsters....Not sure if she'll beat Azarenka, but Sharapova will be easy for her.
This will be the first time she meets someone at or above her level...finally.
If only Serena had just as easy a draw. Ugh.
That does it then. She now has no chance of winning AO.
Li Na will beat Sharapova in straight sets! 6-1, 7-5
Your 2013 Australian Open Champion, Maria Sharapova!
You sure you didn't fall on your head when you were predicting?
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
OP really tries hard to be funny. But obviously he doesnt know how to.
Classic. Would read again.
try again in 2014
Retire your Magic 8 Ball.
So much for all the hype about Maria being the one to beat.
She looked great in the previous rounds because she had an easy draw.
Good riddance and will save a few eardrums for sure.
so much for a dream huh lol this is what happens when you predict on the first two matches played
*Pats himself on the back*
^ Comedy Gold.
You could not dream up such a self-defeating set up.
Correct. Give Sharapova real competition, and she falls apart. Just recall her Olympics match....beatdown city.
Sorry guys, I confused the blonde in my dreams. It was really azarenka that won the Aussie open. It was bit foggy when I saw her.
Be brave! Stand by your original prediction...as "not gonna happen" as any ever dreamed up, but stand by it!
