    Second prediction may be over as Polansky lost his final qualification match in straights to Kokkinakis
    I was a year too soon on the Murray retirement and foolishly didn’t predict it for this year.

    If he wins Wimbledon (or AO) it still could be right sort of!

    3. Who wins womens' majors (name and number only, not specifics) Osaka x2, Kerber, Halep
    4. First-time major champions - men and women Zverev the Younger, Svitolina
    5. Breakthrough player ATP? WTA? DeMinaur, Andreescu
    6. Biggest retirement ATP? WTA? Murray, Serena
    7. Who, besides Djokovic, holds the #1 ranking at any point in 2019? Nadal
    8. How many WTA players hold #1 in 2019? Bonus points for naming them. 3: Osaka, Kerber, Stephens
    9. Comeback player of the year ATP? WTA? Gulbis, Stosur
    10. How many grand slam main draws will Peter Polansky enter via a LL slot? One
    11. How many daytime matches will Roger Federer play at the Australian Open? One
    12. Highest ranked player under age 22 at year-end ATP? WTA? DeMinaur, Andreescu
    13. Biggest rankings drop for a top-40 (based on 2018 year end ranking) player ATP? WTA? Fognini, Serena

    Predict the storyline:
    14. Bryan/Bryan/Sock (can include Sock's singles year) - Sock is outside, looking in - partners with Marc Lopez
    15. Sharapova - drops like a stone
    16. Serena - retires
    17. Andy Murray - retires after losing to RBA
    18. Azarenka - is expecting again soon, but I was out of town when all that went down
    19. The Serving "Shot Clock" - disappears when Nadal and Djokovic are in close matches
    20. Davis Cup - Do big name players play? Do people watch? yes / no

    21. Make one random unlikely prediction, on or off court (the more unlikely, the more points it's worth)
    Osaka vs. Serena has drama at the US Open again

    3. Who wins womens' majors (name and number only, not specifics)
    4. First-time major champions - men and women
    5. Breakthrough player ATP? WTA?
    6. Biggest retirement ATP? WTA? Murray unless the ATP Big 3 stops before season ends
    7. Who, besides Djokovic, holds the #1 ranking at any point in 2019?
    8. How many WTA players hold #1 in 2019? Bonus points for naming them.
    9. Comeback player of the year ATP? WTA?
    10. How many grand slam main draws will Peter Polansky enter via a LL slot?
    11. How many daytime matches will Roger Federer play at the Australian Open? 2 (even if Federer plays a 3rd one, people with 2 gets points)
    12. Highest ranked player under age 22 at year-end ATP? WTA?
    13. Biggest rankings drop for a top-40 (based on 2018 year end ranking) player ATP? WTA?

    Predict the storyline:

    15. Sharapova
    16. Serena
    17. Andy Murray
    18. Azarenka
    19. The Serving "Shot Clock"
    20. Davis Cup - Do big name players play? Do people watch?

    21. Make one random unlikely prediction, on or off court (the more unlikely, the more points it's worth)

    2 questions are basically done with answer in bold.
