S3 - 12: The Championships, Wimbledon (GS)

The Championships, Wimbledon






Week 12 * Grass Grand Slam * Draw Size 32


S1 Winner - Tamarine Tanasugarn
S2 Winner - Amelie Mauresmo


Wimbledon, GBR - Welcome to Wimbledon, and the third Grand Slam of the season! Unlike the first two surfaces, no player has dominated on the grass, we've had 3 different winners of the warm-ups so it's wide open and up for grabs between a lot of players, anyone can win it (except Myskina, of course) so good luck to all!

Draw Posted - Tuesday 18:00 CET

Points Deadline - Wednesday 18:00 CET

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Player Of The Week




Maria Kirilenko


MK has earned POTW for Wimbledon for her fantastic results on grass this season with 3 aces and now has a full set to use this week

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: S3 - 12: The Championships, Wimbledon (GS)

Preview


The Favourites








MK is the favourite on paper having won Birmingham and reached the final in Eastbourne, and with 4 aces she'll be extra dangerous, can she hold her nerve and win? Molik has been having the season of her life, but she may be slightly disappointed with her grass season so far, she has to ability to dominate the field so must be a favourite, whilst Tammy has shown signs of her old, #1 form coming back with a win in Eastbourne, she's also a good bet to reclaim the title she won in season 1.


The Contenders








Misa was the Queen of Grass last season, and is still #2, but she seems less confident this season, and she has underperformed so far on this surface, Lindsay has recorded back-to-back semis but must change some things in her game if she wants to go all the way, Britney finally has been disappointing so far, but I have a feeling she'll deliver at this tournament, special mention goes to Mauresmo, if she shows up, and it's a big if, she's a threat to defend her crown.


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters








My prediction for who will win the title?

Bitch please, I'd kick your ass with 4 aces, 3 aces or -2

Besides if he wanted me to win a slam I WOULDN'T HAVE LOST CRITICAL CTs IN AUSTRALIA

Oh and I beat you twice with 4 aces this year so I'm not that bad

Exactly

Also, she was the only player without 4-aces who did well last week, so quit hatin' Nasty.

Everything except the draw posted Reminder to people to also send their Olympics points (2 aces).

Hopefully the Dav curse will come through and the lil bit less ugly Masha loses in round one.
