Now that Davenport is out of Wimbledon, who will we be cheering for?

I'm mainly cheering for venus, hingis, and kim.

I'll be really disappointed if one of them doesn't win.

Just like Santhuruu mentioned I will cheer for Vee and Masha to win
Hope that Nicole, Ana, Nastya do well too
Martina has a chance and I'd like her to make the semis, but i can't imagine her winning the whole thing.

the purest striker of the ball

This may seem really catty, but after the last two years at Wimby, I could never cheer for Venus or Maria here. I don't hate them and I wish them well, but I just won't be rooting for them.

I'd love to see Martina win this, as unlikely as it is. I'd also think it would be pretty cool if Justine got her career slam here.

I really couldn't give a shit now that Lindsays not there, only one favourite for me. Agree with your first point MH0861.

Ditto. A shame she has no chance of actually winning.

Wimbledon is fucked for me now.

Now that Lindsay is out, I don't care about the tournament. Wimbledon is not Wimbledon without Lindsay.

Kind of like why people like the fatty in your avatar, maybe. Nobody knows.

It could be 'cos she's so lovely and generous. Queen present giver on the WTA tour. I fell into the trap this time last year at Eastbourne before realizing she's actually a bitch.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

James Blake. Women's tennis is nothing without Lindsay. Venus? I hope she loses in the first round and is doubled bagelled by Camille Pin.

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas


Q. Give us an update on the kid.
A. Are you serious?
