Welcome to London, Great Britain! We are not here for the British Museum, the Millennium Eye, the Big Ben or the many Starbucks that London has. Instead, we are here for the third Grand Slam of the year. The grass season is short, but with Eastbourne, Birmingham and Rosmalen, players have had a chance to show what they are worth on the most slippery of surfaces. Ana Ivanović will try to defend her title, but she will have to show some inspiring form if she's to repeat last year's success when she beat Daniela Hantuchova in the final. Only your votes will determine the winner of 2008! Vote now for who you want to win as The Championships get underway.
