Let's play "Experts" - post your Wimbledon 2009 picks here.

As I read the utter crap that some so-called experts write about their picks for Wimbly, I thought "Why not us from Tennisforum?" I'm sure a lot of folks here have more insight than many journalists.
So here's the deal: Post the names of 5 favorites and 5 outsiders to win Wimbly 2009, and, more importantly, please comment on each of them, why you think they could win. Ideally, comment for each player should be 300 to 500 characters.

Re: Let's play "Experts" - post your Wimbledon 2009 picks here.

Finals - Williams Sisters with Venus taking her 6th Venus Rosewater Dish
Semifinalists - Wozniacki,decent draw, and will leave 3rd quarter blank as it is very unpredictable
No 2nd week for - A Radwanska, Ivanovic, Bartoli, Hantuchova, and Petrova
Surprises - Wickmayer, Wozniak, and Razzano(All in that 3rd quarter)

Re: Let's play "Experts" - post your Wimbledon 2009 picks here.

Major contenders:
Venus - This is Wimbledon. She could enter on crutches and still be a leading contender.
Serena

Minor contenders:
Kuznetsova
Sharapova
Wozniacki
Safina (only because she's No.1)

Dark horses:
Azarenka
Stosur
Cibulkova (she's in a weak third section of the draw)
Mauresmo
Razzano (again, in the third section)

Shouldn't expect too much:
Ivanovic
Dementieva
Petrova

Re: Let's play "Experts" - post your Wimbledon 2009 picks here.

Favourites
Venus - her record at Wimbledon speaks for itself.
Serena - is a fighter and can never be discounted at a Grand Slam.

Next
Dinara - is world Number 1, not a favourite for her but I wouldn't discount a Number 1

Maria - has the game to win at Wimbledon. Never knows when to quit in match. Can't be discounted.

Others
Amelie Mauresmo & Caroline Wozniacki
