Enna favorite for Wimbledon title now?

IMO, yes!

She is the best player currently, got a tremendous psychological boost with today's FO win and Serena has not been in top form in last 2 years.

And who else could stop Justine?

No!!!
I could name a couple of women whose game will favour faster grass surface but the list is long and I might miss some.

Why don't you choose other players to support, Gunther? Don't you think you bring enough shame to the Graf camp?

Well at least he still respects Serena enough that he sees her as the only rival to Enna.

Enna´s been serving plenty big lately and if she can keep the % up, she might well win wimby....but if she has to hit too many second serves then I don´t see her winning wimby.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

dont quite recall Gaudio and Myskina being faves for the title last year

clay and grass are completely different. that's why the "double" is so prestigous. as a Graf fan(atic) i thought you would realise that

If Justine serves the way she served today against Mary, why not ?
But, it's too early to predict, and .... predictions don't mean anything.

She's the favorite, yes. She seems to be hitting the ball harder than she did before her virus. Only players who she would worry about are Serena, Davenport, and Sharapova. Serena is going to be very rusty come Wimbledon. Davenport would need to be at the top of her game to beat Henin, and I'm not sure she could pull it off for 3 sets. Sharapova is going to be at a huge psychological disadvantage after losing to Henin here. She'll also need to keep the UE's down.

she is having a rest because of her virus. I wonder how much practice on grass she would have before wimbledon.

Why would she? She knows this match was on clay...

Its going to be a tough Wimbledon. Justine will do well, but Maria is just awesome on faster surfaces.

She's one of the favorites, but she's only played one fast-court tournament this year and it wasn't even that fast as most of you know Miami is one of the slowest hard-courts there is.

I believe she'll pull out of Eastbourne now and we won't know exactly how she's gonna play. The early rounds really will tell, but then... early rounds don't mean much to Justine unless she loses

Don't care who the favorites are. Let's face it, unless you're a Justine fan, you're never really going to see the talent and drive behind her to consider her a contender for anything outside clay. It's alright though. As long as she keeps winning titles and proving you people wrong, you can say anything you want.
