Player Of The Week




Monica Seles


Monica gets the extra ace this week after her run to the semis in Eastbourne with 0 aces so she now has 1 to use at Wimbledon

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Preview


The Favourites








Alicia is the overwhelming favourite having lost just one match so far this grass season, I'd really love to see the rest of the field to step up and challenge her, but she really is a step ahead, Pennetta can be devastating when on and if she overcomes her tricky possible second round against match against Serena, she could go all the way, Tammy finally is an unpredictable player but she's a former champion and is not far from her best form so she's definitely among the favourites.


The Contenders








Misa has been in a major slump this season but she has got 4 aces and her record shows she can be an elite player, she needs a new approach but she can win here, MK has been quiet so far on the grass but has done very well at the Slams this season and has a good draw to do well here, Lindsay has pigged out and turned to drugs since she finally fulfilled her goal of winning a Slam but can she get clean in time for Wimbledon and put her 4 aces to good use?


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters








My prediction for who will win the title?

Worst draw possible.
Top half is packed while bottom half are mostly scrubs.

Tough draw but Britney is coming to London with her Circus in hand to squash the competition.
