S1 Week 18, Wimbledon, GBR, GS

WIMBLEDON





Welcome to The All England Club, Wimbledon, SW19, for the season's third Grand Slam. Cibulkova won the Australian Open, and Vaidisova won the French Open 3 weeks ago. Will we have another new Slam champ here this week?

Let's check out the favourites:-





Elena Dementieva - She has won 4 of the last 5 tournaments. However, she won the two tournaments before Roland Garros and went out meekly in her first match there. She will be hoping for better fortune here on the lawns of the All England Club. Can she handle the pressure this time round?




Nicole Vaidisova - She won Roland Garros and has shown great form on the grass too, reaching the Birmingham final, and the semis in Eastbourne. She will be tough to beat, and she knows how to win a Slam.




Gisela Dulko - She made the semis of Birmingham and final of Eastbourne so is also in great grass court form, and would be no surprise to see her with the trophy at the end of this week.


Not really going out on a limb here by picking the top 3 players, but they really are the most in-from at the moment!



Let's check out the draw!

1. (PC) Medina Garrigues Vs. (WC) Benesova
2. (PC) Schiavone Vs. (WC) Cornet

Re: S1 Week 18, Wimbledon, GBR, GS

Corruption!




Serena kept complaining when she arrived in Wimbledon, after saying her opponent Natalie Dechy cheated to beat her last week in Eastbourne, she claimed the Wimbledon's draw was rigged against her. For a fourth week in a row Serena Williams and Natalie "The Fuc*in' Biatch" Dechy are set up to face in second round. When Dechy was drawn just after Serena Williams match at the main draw ceremony, the American women screamed "This draw is fuc*in' bullshit, they all want to see me lose, burn in hell fuc*in' stupid Wimbledon organizers!"

Serena Williams has probably the toughest draw she could have ever hoped for as she would have to face almost only opponents she has negative or tied records against. Serena Williams coach said after the match, "This draw is totally stupid, all the best players are in the the top part, can you believe Cibulkova, Dementieva, Williams and Dulko are in the top part! Nicole Vaidisova has a BYE to the final."

A British news paper also reported that they talked a bit to Serena Williams on the phone 2 hours after the draw was made and that she said, "They are all gonna regret it, I'll make this Wimbledon an unforgettable one, even if I bow out right in first round, I'll make trouble for the rest of the tournament believe me!"
