Betting odds for Wimbledon

Just wondering what are the odds for the Wimbledon 2006's ladies champion. For Roland Garros 2006, all betting odds sites had Justine as their favorite to win, and they were right. How is it now with Wimbledon, anyone know?

Go Brazilian girls!

silly bookies.

what has kim ever done on grass to be one of the top three favorites? if they were combining prior results on grass with recent performance for the year, mauresmo would be ahead of kim.

and surprise, surprise, they always count Venus out.
