Predict the Next 10 slam winners

2018 - Australian Open - French Open - Wimbledon - US Open
2019 - Australian Open - French Open - Wimbledon - US Open
2020 - Australian Open - French Open

As the likeliness of individual players winning Grand Slams varies (as projected at this current point in time), the points accrued by selecting a player will differ based on certain factors such as…ability - age - headspace - injury record - potential - previous slam history. How players chances of winning slams by the end of FO:2020 are perceived is subjective, however I have separated them into the following points tiers given the criteria set above.

1 POINT     AZARENKA     HALEP     KVITOVA     MUGURUZA     KA PLISKOVA     SHARAPOVA     S. WILLIAMS     -     -
1.25 POINTS     KERBER     KEYS     KONTA     OSTAPENKO     A. RADWANSKA     STEPHENS     SVITOLINA     V. WILLIAMS     WOZNIACKI
1.5 POINTS     BACSINSZKY     CIBULKOVA     GARCIA     KUZNETSOVA     MAKAROVA     MLADENOVIC     PAVLYUCHENKOVA     SEVASTOVA     COCO
1.75 POINTS     BELLIS     BERTENS     GAVRILOVA     KONJUH     KASATKINA     KONTAVEIT     MERTENS     SINIAKOVA     N. OSAKA
2 POINTS     ANY OTHER PLAYER     -     -     -     -     -     -     -     -


Tie breakers: if level on points
i)  Winner will be the entry who has selected the most amount of individual slam winners (My example selection has 7 different players)
ii) If this is still equal, winner will be the entry who has selected a new slam winner or the highest number of new slam winners.
iii) If tied entrants are still level, then tied positions place is shared

Example Selection
Muguruza x 3
Serena x2
Sharapovax 1
Konta x 1
Keys x 1
Halep x1
Svitolina x1
=10

Spoiler: Show

Any player selected from the top 200 Rankings list below (or 201+) that has not been listed in the points distribution table will earn 2 points for winning a Grand Slam by the end of the French Open 2020. Players within the top 4 points tiers are bolded.

Notable absentees - Postpregnancy players not called Clijsters, Keys (post-final press conference had too much 'oh well i lost and what's for tea' and zilch conviction/fire), Anti-tennis pushers (their ships have sailed thank f), the eternal S.Hapless, and any current top 10 non Spanish player whose surname ends with 'a'

why is the selection in OP 10 and not 10.75?
Report mesmerised September 19, 2017 12:28 AM BST
10 wasn't in reference to the points, it was just totalling up number of picks to emphasise how I wanted people to post their selections/make sure they list 10, same as ATP thread, though in hindsight I see the confusion.

But yes, total points here would be 10.75 points, ATP 11.25 points.
