    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...

    yeah right, haven't you seen her last match against Justine Henin ? C'mon, the victory goes to either Kim Cleisters or Justine Henin...Belgium rules again

    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.

    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
    Winner: Amelie Mauresmo
    Runner-up: Justine Henin-Hardenne

    3) Men's Doubles
    Victors: Mike Bryan/Bob Bryan
    Runners-up: Martin Damm/Leander Paes

    4) Women's Doubles

    Runners-up: Lisa Raymond/Samantha Stosur

    5) Mixed Doubles
    Victors: Mahesh Bhupathi/Martina Hingis

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