What potential matchups do you want . . .

to see at Wimbledon? I have selected some of the matchups from previous slams that allow for some revenge and possibly interesting tennis.

Possible r. 16
amelie v. nicole (last match, nicole demoralizes world #1 at home)
martina v. kim (last match, kim stops hingis RG hype)

Possible QF
maria v. venus (last match, venus restores order to house of williams)
kim v. davenport (last match, davie takes kim out of slam contention for the second time)

Possible SF
kim v. maria (last match, kim snatches yet another final appearance from maria making her slamless for 2005)
amelia v. justine (last match, amelie outplays justine before stomach finally defeats her)

I voted for momo v. nicole. momo will definitely want revenge, but can she do it vs. nicole on grass with her big serve and great groundstrokes?

Maria v Venus. Oh yes.

I don't think they can play until QF? 1-4 plays 13-16 in fourth round.

on grass?! you're a brave fan.

anyway, if it were to happen, it couldn't happen until semis, right?

i'd be in for a repeat of 2000 SF/QF, with the same result of course.

Hingis/Venus would be a great matchup. I think it'd be a closer match than VWFan. Hingis has a tendency (in the past) to try and breakdown the Venus forehand...2000 Wimbledon was VERY close...and Venus was definitely in form then.

Mauresmo/Henin would be fun to see too.

I'm not sure how soon a Hingis/Venus match-up could happen, to be honest. Their one match on grass was pretty close (6-3 4-6 6-4). I know Venus would likely win, but I just love watching Hingis and Venus play.
