Player Of The Week



Maria Kirilenko


Congrats Masha She deserves it after all her epic wins (and losses ) and her run to the semis in Eastbourne has finally sealed the POTW award for her and gives her an extra ace to use at Wimbledon

Re: S1 - 12: The Championships, Wimbledon (GS)

Preview


The Favourites








Amelie is clearly the favourite for the title after compiling a 13-1 record in the three grass warm-ups, she's an intelligent player and with 4 aces is tough to beat, but how will she cope with the pressure of being favourite? Tamarine remains her greatest threat after having an impressive grass season herself, and as for Severine, her coach's absence has hampered her, but she still has 4 aces, and should not be underestimated.


The Contenders








Venus has really impressed me these past few weeks, and with her best surface still yet to come a few wins here would really be a bonus, Maria can get tight at the key stages but is a real fighter, and with her extra ace, could be dangerous, finally there's Lindsay, she's struggling with her confidence, but she can surprise if she uses her aces wisely.


The Dark Horses








The 'I Better Include Them Or They'll Be Annoyed' Players






My prediction for who will win the title?

Re: S1 - 12: The Championships, Wimbledon (GS)

Aces, OOP, POTW and preview posted

Remember, article points double at Slams (we haven't had many recently ), and there'll be live scoring from the QFs onwards

Re: S1 - 12: The Championships, Wimbledon (GS)

Hmm...the favourite(predicted by Dav) to win the grand slam will be likely to lose in the first 2 rounds,as proved by the last two slams.
I hope Momo will actually win it though! Break the curse!
