    Serena would have to be the favourite to make the finals.

    Let's see if Murray will take the next step.

    I'd love Federer to win his 7th Wimbledon BUT I really don't think that's gonna happen. My dark horse for the tournament is Robin Soderling. If he plays well he could go very far, even knock Nadal out. I think the men's field is more open this year.
    I don't care for any of the women players but I'll support anyone who is playing one of the Williams sisters lol.

    Federer loves playing on grass, but yeah I don't think he will win this year.

    I would like to see Murray win or even Nadal.

    Also, the two female French Open finalist (Stosur and Schiavinoe lost in the 1st round).

    Also, I forgot about Kim or Henin. They might have a chance.

    ^ Yeah Kim and Justine could stand a good chance. I don't think Murray will get to the final, not if he has to play Nadal in the semis. Roddick is always a dangerous one on grass too.

    I am the biggest Roger fan, but he seems to be really misisng something this year. Murray winning would be emotional, but i can't stand his face, lol. Roddick winning would be cool too, especially after coming so close last year (although i think he was kind of tacky at the victory ceremony).

    I'm sort of the same way with Venus and Serena. I'll never forget Serena's outburst at the Open. I actually don't mind Venus, as i consider her an underdog now, and i always cheer for them .

    total roger fantard too and i'd love to see him win but i agree soderling has been playing amazingly lately and is definitely a contender.

    Yes. It's got its own thread now!

    I like Venus and Serena. They are so entertaining.

    I just saw the schedule of play for today and some good matches on:

    Henin v Kim Clistjer's match is on today.

    I can't pick a winner - I think I might go for Henin.

    And, then Maria Sharapova v Serena Williams.

    I think Serena should beat Maria.

    ^ Yep it's a great line up of matches today. It's a shame so many of them are on at the same time.

    The day I had to turn the TV to Mute during women's matches was the day I decided to stop watching altogether. I wish the referees/umpires took a stand on the screaming/grunting because it ruins everything.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
