Re: Which former champion will have best shot in 2008 Wimbledon?

I think Serena will win this year, after beating Maria in QF/SF/F. It won't be pretty.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

If they don't play on Court 2 they'll be fine. Who knows...

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

I love how all of them have modelling pics except for Lindsay


Anyway, in answer to the question, the most aggressive players are the ones rewarded the most on grass, and they are Serena/Venus/Lindsay. I think overall, Venus has the best chance.

I really think Serena will be so pissed about RG that she'll steamroll everyone en route to a victory, though Venus, Sharapova and a few others could give her a run for her money.

maria serena and then venus
amelie and lindsay have no chance
the only other player who can win is ana if she doesnt face maria or serena

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.
