2010 Predictions

Tennis is extremely unpredictable, as we all know. It’s hard to predict what will happen a month into the future, let alone a year. So, in typical nonsensical fashion, we thought it would be fun to each give 20 predictions about the coming season (anything tennis-related). Each time one of our predictions fail, we’ll cross it out. At the end of the year, we’ll see which of us is the best prognosticator.

Feel free to post your own predictions in the comments and see if you can beat us! 😉

    • I’m not a huge fan of DelPo either but I really think is going to happen. He won a slam and he made a Masters 1000 final already that’s why I made that prediction. I just don’t want it to be on clay,those are for Rafa 😀 I totally think is going to be on a hard court maybe Canada or Cincinnati.

    • Ana is NOT getting engaged to Adam. 😛 She was already asked if she would get married in 2010 and she said “Definitely Not”. She won’t break up either (I dont think.) Or maybe she will, and start dating me. 😀

    • “Dick will suck” LOL. Yeah, that sounds about right.

      I also love “Muzz will drop out of the Top 5,” but who do you think would replace him? Not Dick, if he’s sucking XD

    • If prediction #12 is right and Ana does win a slam, I am going do die of over-excitement and I want you to predict the lotto numbers for me. lol Can you lend me some of that optimism? I need it. 😛

    • They are some interesting predictions! Espesh the Felando ones! XD

    • after seeing Feli serenade Nando with “With or Without You”, after the DC finals, i think predictions 15-18 are pretty much reality 🙂

      • They totally have that famous vid, I even have a gif of it. Feli is allegedly dating Cristiano Ronaldo’s left overs, and of course she’s a model XD

        • Oh man, do you mean Nereida or whatever her name was? Cos if so, I hope Feli has better sense than that. She was a trainwreck!

        • Feli back together with his much older (I think she’s 35 or so) on-again, off-again girlfriend Maria José Suarez, not Ronaldo’s ex. I dunno where that rumour came from. Feli & Maria José were together at the opening of the PortAventura a couple weeks ago. She mixed the Davis Cup final for, get this, a ski trip with her friends. What a keeper.

          But yes, he is with her, not any of Cristiano’s leftovers.

  15. first week of the year and

    10. RAndy will play his heart out for Team USA but be let down by fellow players
