Player Of The Week



Daniela Hantuchova


I'm giving it to Daniela for her persistence this season, and finally producing some good results in the past few weeks

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: S2 - 12: The Championships, Wimbledon (GS)

Preview


The Favourites








Misa comes into the event as the favourite having compiled a 9-1 record in the warm-ups, she tends to perform well at the big events, but perhaps lacks some confidence, Ditty made a surprise run last week in Eastbourne, and will definitely be a horror first round for any of the seeds, and finally there's Molik, she's made two semis and a final on grass but can't quite seem to make a breakthrough, could it finally happen this week?


The Contenders








Tanasugarn and Bremond both made the final last year and both have 4 aces, but have yet to impress on their preferred surface, still neither can be counted out, Mauresmo has also failed to replicate her grass success, but definitely has the ability to win on this surface as we saw last season.


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters






My prediction for who will win the title?

Re: S2 - 12: The Championships, Wimbledon (GS)

Venus Arrives At Wimbledon



After a hefty return to the tour at the Ordina Open, Venus Williams has arrived in London, England early in order to captialize on her tour experience to get her through the early rounds. Making a semi-final run in singles and making two consecutive doubles finals on grass this year, gives Williams confidence and belief that she can overcome less that stellar grass results.

Venus Williams

GV - Back From The Dead.........
Venus better have her hair fixed for the AO I'm just tired of it.

Re: S2 - 12: The Championships, Wimbledon (GS)

Aces, POTW and Preview up

I meant to say this before, but when sending points can you all please stick to this format -

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-A-A-A-A

As opposed to - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5, etc. or 01-02-03-04-05, etc. It just makes scoring a lot easier, thanks.

And don't forget to start sending hard points too

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

The draw is going to be really, really interesting.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.
