Tennis Prediction
With the Australian Open about to start, I thought I'd make a prediction for this year.

This is not a prediction I wish to make, especially as it 'cuts out' my two favourite players (and will annoy plutos_revenge, which isn't something I do lightly *g*). However, it really is what I feel will happen.

My prediction is that Novak Djokovic will have another stellar year; in fact it will be a super-stellar year.

I predict that in 2016 he will win all four slams (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon & the US Open). Thus doing what no other man has done since Rod Laver: win all four slams in the same calendar year. Plus, he will win the gold medal at this years Olympic Games. Thus giving him the 'Golden Slam' which only Steffi Graf has done.

I am, however, more than happy to be proved wrong *g*

NB: I had actually made this prediction before the Australian Open draw came out, I just hadn't got around to posting it and despite Novak's tough looking draw I stand by it.

*eyes you*

Sigh. Yes he most probably will, though I reserve judgement on the USO until later in the year as I hold out hope aliens will arrive and transport him back to his home planet of the boggy ones.

For the record, he's not allowed to match anything Steffi did because Steffi was awesome and he's... well. Not. *nods*

*Looks innocent*

*Giggles* If I had to pick one I was the least sure about it would be the FO as he wants it so badly; sometimes wanting things so badly is your undoing.

*Laughs* She was indeed awesome. He's an awesome player, one can't deny that.

What about Serena? Do you think she'll win everything this year?

He is indeed an awesome player. He's also an awesome something else that I won't say in polite company *beams*

Hmm. No I don't think she will. I think she's peerless in the ladies game but she seems to be suffering more with injuries and niggles these days and being an Olympic year it's a loooooong season. I think last season was the Slam season if it was going to happen. That said, while I'd be happy to see any one of half a dozen women win GS titles I'd also love to see her do the calendar slam if she can.

My main wish for the season, apart from the aforementioned aliens, is for a Swiss mixed doubles title at the Olympics *G*

*Eyes you and shakes head* Hee.

She does indeed. I too think last year was her chance, probably her last chance TBH. It would be nice to see more ladies win GSs.

I echo you wish for a Swiss mixed doubles gold. I'm sure they can do it. I'm just glad Mr. Fed Ex gave in and agreed to play with her.
