One of these years I'll really let myself go and write everything I want to... but had to reel myself in this year after 25 pp in Word.

Something I didn't mention at all is the absurdity of Halep being computer #1 having won only one title during the year.  This has never happened before.  Previous lows were last year when Kerber won 3 and ditto Serena in 2009, and in 2008 Jankovic won 4... weird year this year...

Re: 2018 predictions

That is one comprehensive article - Its no wonder you do so well - While I don't agree with everything its tough to challenge the the predictions for 2018 - However I will try OPPS "there is no try - only do or do not" So I will do - Svitolina will start the year off by winning the Aussi Open - Halep will finally win the French Open - Muguruza will repeat as Wimbledon Champ (beating Konta in the final to boot) - Sharapova will win US Open (over Serena)...

2018 end of year top ten:
1) Muguruza
2) Sharapova
3) Svitolina
4) Halep
5) Pliskova
6) Serena
7) Wozniacki
8) Ostapenko
9) Vandeweghe
10) Garcia

Re: 2018 predictions

I like your predictions, Murreee!  That would be an interesting year... esp if Maria can finally beat Serena again!

Re: 2018 predictions

I am more curious what we'll see from Novak and Stanimal than anything else.

Re: 2018 predictions

Me too. I dont expect murray to come back quivkly to his best. Probably gonna take him a while.  But nole and stan, over their 30s? Hard to say. I expect Nole to be really good at some point this year. As for Stan..  who knows. He is a hard worker.
