So how about that 2009 season, huh?

That's my "review" part!

I wanted to switch it up from last year when I looked back on all the calls I made over the season—the good, the bad and the ugly—and offer a brief look back on '09, as well as give some predictions for 2010. Will they happen? I don't know, I'm not Nostradamus! But what would a year be without me making some calls, however outlandish? Here's a few things that I think will happen in 2010:

• Roger Federer wins Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic wins the Australian, Rafael Nadal the French and Andy Murray, the U.S. Open.

• Justine Henin wins the French and finishes in the top 5 in the rankings.

• Kim Clijsters plays the barest minimum of tournaments and steps away again at the end of the year.

• France wins the Davis Cup.

• Maria Sharapova will win a Major.

• Ana Ivanovic will be back solidly in the top 10, if not top 5.

• Andy Roddick dumps Larry Stefanki and finishes as the number-two American behind Sam Querrey.

• Serena should grab a Slam or two as well: So I have her, Sharapova and Henin possibly accounting for all four Majors. If anyone else sneaks in and grabs one, I'm going to say Dinara Safina.

• On the men's side, watch for big moves from Marin Cilic, Jeremy Chardy and Horacio Zeballos.

• For the women, look out for Aravene Rezai, Alize Cornet and Sania Mirza.

• And your number ones at the end of 2010? Andy Murray and Serena Williams.

Hey everyone, thanks for the comments!

• Dean, she has to come back at some point, right? Why not now? She's too talented not to be a contender.

• Hi Yuri. He's young enough and has shown he knows how to win tournaments, so who knows? Maybe he can make some big moves.

• Jessie, unfortunately they're both done.
