My predictions are,

Men: Federer (that's an obvious choice, the way he is playing)
Women: Hingis winning in her comeback grand slam tournament
Men's Doubles: The Bryan twins
Women's Doubles: Lisa Raymond/Samantha Stosur
Mixed doubles: Hingis/Bhupathi

Also, Marcos Baghdatis is on an amazing run! He first accounted for the vastly overrated Roddick and now Ljubicic as well!

Let's see how my powers of prediction turn out...

Clijsters beat Hingis 6-3 2-6 6-4. Her game was way too powerful for Hingis to cope. Oh well, let's see if Mauresmo can do any better.

Is the Australian Open Soccer or Tennis? Or Golf?

In this context, it is the annual tennis tournament.

Mauresmo will be beaten in two sets. That's a promise.
Federer had to play a five setter to beat Haas. That's been a long time he had to go this far. In the Master's final, he lost in five sets to Nalbandian, who will be his opponent in the final of this year's Australian Open. Federer will win in four sets.

Amelie Mauresmo reached the Australian Open final for a second time when Kim Clijsters was forced to retire with the Frenchwoman leading 5-7 6-2 3-2.

Hard luck really. Atleast Marlon, there is still one Belgian in the final.

Baghdatis just beat Nalbandian 3-6 5-7 6-3 6-4 6-4 to advance to his first grand slam final.

What a guy! Coming back from 2 sets down to win it. He was even down 4-2 in the final set!

Here is the action as it happened

2) Women's Singles

Runner-up: Justine Henin-Hardenne

3) Men's Doubles

4) Women's Doubles
Victors: Zi Yan/Jie Zheng
Runners-up: Lisa Raymond/Samantha Stosur

5) Mixed Doubles

I got 3 on 5 right (almost 4), so that's not bad. Next up, the French Open.
