Suppose there's a new Wimbledon Champ ... and it's NOT Justine Henin
Who do you think it would be, and why?
Roland Garros has more than it's share of potential new champs. Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova are both former finalists, and champs at other slams. Ana Ivanovic was in the last RG final, and the last OZ final. But outside of Justine Henin, who's resume saya 'Wimby-champ-in-waiting'?
Marion Bartoli - Well, she was in the final last year, so we have to include her. Can I get a 'yeah, right'?
Nicole Vaidisova - Well, she's tall, and skinny, and has a big serve. Can I get a 'yeah, right. Uh-huh'?
I just don't see where this new champ would come from. Well, The All-England Club likes tradition. Maybe they don't even want a new face. But it looks like another episode of Henin and the Repeaters this year.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
