Sam Smith picks Tsvetana Pironkova to reach the final at Wimbledon 2011

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/9517706.stm Scroll down to Sam Smith's picks.

MEN'S
I think Roger Federer will win as he is hitting his serve and forehand unbelievably well at the moment.

WOMEN'S
Tsvetana Pironkova is a fantastic grass court player and I think she is the best server in the women's game. She reached the semis here last year and I think she could go one step further this year.

I. Can't.

Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Sam Smith picks Tsvetana Pironkova to reach the final at Wimbledon 2011

Also of great note, Sue Barker

WOMEN'S
I am backing Maria Sharapova as she is the one person who is not afraid of the Williams sisters. Time might have beaten Venus and Serena in their battle to be fully fit but if Serena makes it into the second week I might have to change my choice of winner.



There are more players who aren't scared of Venus and Serena than Sharapova........and ehhh, Sam, she probably is scared.

Oh BBC

I love Sam Smith, but I really think she must be smoking the good stuff of late, because she's been coming up with some right howlers.

I'm quite sure there's an error somewhere in there Sam Smith has a bit of common sense, and she's very aware that Pironkova has been sucking this year...
