I had one question, why Rafa the Spaniard is playing in Basel instead of Valencia?

@charlene @Silver Shadow I dont think my prediction is wrong yet, I said Ana or Simona will lose all their matches. Simona won her first but Ana did lose hers. 

Anyways, by the look of these 2 matches i think Genie will be the one losing all her matches.

@BlagaLucian @Silver Shadow yea, it'll be either Simona or Ana from Red group who'll lose all their matches, totally depends on which Ana shows up.

Simona according to me has always been a mediocre player. Just remember how people were all gaga over her few months back.

She hasnt beaten any of the Big 3 players Vika, Serena and Maria, even though Maria was vulnerable in those clay court outings and in Cincinati. Ana was able to take advantage of that and beat Maria in Rome.

But i hope all of them will be healthy and give their best here and make a bold statement for 2015.

I think Aggie and Ana/Simona will lose all their ROund Robin matches.

In Red group I see Serena and Genie advancing(health permitting)

In white group I see Maria and Petra advancing(Caro could be close)

If maria-Serena avoid a semis match then it will be Maria Vs Serena in the finals with Serena winning her 4th YEC

Petra will reach semis for sure. After that it's all luck. She won't beat Serena if they meet at semis or finals. And if she were to meet Maria then it's 50-50.

I wonder who'll reach semis? Serena, Maria and Petra for sure, if they are all healthy. I wonder who'll be the fourth one.

There is one more surprising thing. Maria is the only major champion this year to have beat a top 10 player on her to way to the championship. She beat Simona Halep.

Petra, Na and Serena went on to win the title without meeting a top 10 player.

I think Samantha is jealous of Maria coz of all the majors that she has won with an "inferior" game; whereas caro has never managed to win one.

Unlike caro, dinara or jelena, Maria won a major this year. She also reached 2nd week of all the majors and won 2 of 4 premier mandatory tournaments.

If I'm not wrong, Maria and Genie were the only two women, who reached at least the 4th round of all the majors this year.

Maria won 2 out of 4 premier mandatory events. 

and surprisingly, she won Madrid, FO and Beijing, where the defending champion was Serena Williams. Lets see if Serena chooses to defend Singapore or not. If not, then Maria would have a good chance of winning it.

@AM Down Under @Doctor Ivo! I think, Maria does well on indoor courts. No wind means, her serve is not much of a liability. And we all know, if her Serve is clicking then she is pretty dominating. Thats why she was able to beat Vika in Istanbul 2012.

So for me at Singapore, the favorites are Serena, Maria and Petra. anyone outside of these 3 will be surprising

Kei takes pressure as privilege. He is performing well in Asian tourneys where he has a home crowd support, no matter where. He has matured a lot this year under Chang


On a surprising note, lots of American male players in Asian tourneys. Steve and Jack have made it through QF's at Japan open

@arasmas @lexxlutz @tennisfan2331 @downandout there was nothing funny about it. To fight a warrior like Serena you need that extra. Henin, Clijsters had it, and the ones i see have it now are Vika and Cornet

Wow Indoor and clay! 

Federer the best ever on indoor courts and the 2nd best in this generation on clay After Rafa.

Federer has reached 5 RG finals, winning 1. 

Stan has always played better on clay than hard courts. So many titles won on clay. He has also defeated a lot of top players on clay courts and reached all his masters finals on clay(Rome, Madrid and Monte Carlo)

The only ADVANTAGE that Frenchies have is that Roger is 33. Thats all. 

Come on Fedrinka!!!

@LaReine @Robinhood733 Li Na brought billions of people to tennis. Serena is beloved by  tennis fans. Maria brings glamor and fashion to the tour(along with serena and Venus). Venus brings class and also got equal pay for women major champions.

these women have been trendsetters, i wonder what gen next women will bring to the tour.

Sloane i thought would takeover Serena(we all know how that turned out)

Genie is stepping on Maria's footsteps.

thats all i have

Li Na brought 1.4 billion people to tennis scene. Thats a massive achievement. No wonder she was under a constant pressure to perform well. And her 2 major victories are the sweetest. She is a classy lady and fought really hard, on and off court(chinese tennis association) 

Chinese/Asian/tennis fans will miss her. Hope she stays in touch with tennis and her fans even after her retirement.

the only performance that i could think of, which was close to Kvitova's match was AO 2007 finals between Serena and Maria. Serena came out to prove her detractors and critics wrong.

Like Vika, where people were too critical of her retirements, forced her to play some matches which she shouldn't have, same with Serena, she played a match just for the critics.

This was a dull match, but kudos to Kvitova for not adding drama to this match and winning in straight sets. 


As expected Bouchard won, She plays good and aggressive. This is her 2nd year on tour and she is already into the finals of Wimbledon. Reminds me of Maria when in 2004, just on her second year on tour, reached Wimbledon finals and won. 


But I believe Kvitova will win. Happy to see her back in a major final. If she wins 2 Wimbledon titles, she'll be the best grass court player of this generation after the Williams sisters :)
