Its going to be one hell of a year!

2012 is just around the corner believe or not. I thought I would take this opportunity to basically embarrass myself and make a few predictions for the forthcoming year. Its only 7pm but I have about 37 tequila shots glasses of orange juice and I'm feeling in the mood to make some bold, some would say insane predictions. Well, here goes nothing.

Petra Kvitova will not win a slam.
Winning your first slam is hard, but it almost seems harder to win your second one sometimes, remember it took Serena two years. She will have a solid year, make a slam final and win a medal finishing solidly inside the 3.

Kim Clijsters will retire before the Olympics
Injury after injury and lacking motivation I honestly believe that Kim Clijsters will prematurely end her career once more, sadly. Probably at the start of the clay season of after Roland Garros

Serena Williams will win two Slams
Australian Open and Wimbledon. She will not win a medal in the Olympics for singles however

Andrea Petkovic will make a slam final
You heard it here first! After a very solid 2011 making three quarter finals at the majors I expect the German to go two steps further.

Maria Sharapova will fail to make the semis of any slam.

Li Na will fall before the third round of her title defence in Paris.
Still struggling with that 'post slam slump' I expect it to stay around for a while longer for Li Na, possibly a reverse of this year with a bad first half of the season and great results at Wimbledon and the US Open.

Pavlyuchenkova will make a slam semi!
After two quarter finals at the majors this year (one she should have won) the Russian will in 2012 make the next step, expect it to be on clay.

Wozniacki will make another slam final, Zvonareva will too.
I don't know why or when or how but I want to believe for indifferent reasons.

Kimiko Date Krumm will have a deep run at Wimbledon and bronze medal at the Olympics!

So, when you're rolling in your winning I expect a fair cut! Do you have predictions you'd like to make?

Caps I saw that earlier and hoped it was just random gossip :( sadly not! A bit of a down grade for her considering this man lacks teeth :P

Carlos/ABM you win the award for wackiest predictions :P Peng growing her hair back? Lucingis getting married :O If not this year it will have to be 2014...Lucinda hates odd years and believes they are bad luck.
