Tennis Awards

Biggest surprise: Tomas Berdych, Czech Republic

Played very well in the Slams, and finally lived up to the hype: for a year.

Best Male Player: Rafael Nadal, Spain

Surprise? Not at all. Rafa won 3 out of 4 slams, the most impressive probably being the U.S. Open, his first, and more notably, one of Roger Federer’s best tournaments.

Best Female Player: Caroline Wozniacki, Denmark

“The Wizard of Woz”, as she is sometimes known as, was definitely wizard-esque, taking over the #1 ranking in the world. Although she failed to win a Slam in 2010, she is bound to win at least 1 in 2011.

Biggest Disappointment: Andy Murray, Great Britain

Once again, Murray didn’t win a major, as time is passing very quickly.

Picks for next year’s Grand Slams:

Australian Open: Roger Federer, Switzerland

Roger dominates Andy Roddick as a tired Rafa Nadal loses in the quarterfinals.

French Open: Rafael Nadal, Spain

Nadal continues his dominance of Roland Garros, beating Robin Soderling, of Sweden, as Fed loses in the Semis.

Wimbledon: Roger Federer, Switzerland

Federer rebounds from a surprising defeat at Wimbledon in 2010, winning in 4 sets against crowd favorite Andy Murray.

U.S. Open: Rafael Nadal, Spain

Rafael Nadal repeats as champion, proving 2010 was not a fluke for the Spaniard, defeating Roger Federer in straight sets.

 

Woman’s Grand Slams picks for 2011

Australian Open: Vera Zvonareva, Russia

As Serena Williams misses the tournament, the emotional Zvonareva wins in 3 sets.

French Open: Serena Williams, United States of America

This time around, Serena is healthy, and breezes by the competition in France, defeating Justine Henin of Belgium in straight sets.

Wimbledon: Caroline Wozniacki, Denmark

Wozniacki proves that it’s her time, and wins her first Grand Slam in her young career.

U.S. Open: Kim Clijsters, Belgium

Kim Clijsters proves that the U.S. Open is her tournament, and wins in thrilling fashion over hard-hitting Maria Sharapova in 3 sets.
