Re: Will There Be A New Wimbledon Champ?
All of the active Wimbledon champs are still better than almost anyone else on grass. Even Mauresmo could put together an inspired run. I don't think we'll see a first time Wimby winner this year, though one never knows these days.
Can Ivanovic, Jankovic or Kuznetsova (the 3 non-Wimbledon winners with the best chances to win it) beat more than 1 of the 5 current/previous winners? They'll likely have to get by at least 2, maybe 3 and possibly 4 of them. I don't think so this year. Imagine someone going through a murderer's row of Davenport or Mauresmo, then Serena, then Venus then Sharapova? Who of the non-winners is capable of doing this on grass?
