WIMBLEDON: Callens vs. Harkleroad

Who will win this "intriguing" first round match up?

My money is on Callens 6-1, 6-4.

Who cares if Justine and Kim aren't here... we're still going to have a Belgian champ!

LOL, that's hilarious. Yeah, a Belgian champ of the 1st round

I think Els will win it too.

Els has been going trough a slump lately but she's has been doing really in Wimby the last two years.Let's hope she can keep it up.

Allez.

Els is slumping but Harkleroad is even worse. Ashley just lost to Zheng 6-1 6-1, and then Zheng lost to a Brit (Janes) in the main draw
They are both in pretty bad form but Callens should have the edge since shes actually good on grass, while Harkleroad isnt.

6-7, 6-7 against Serena Williams... pretty damn impressive, if you ask me.

Imagine what would have happened if Els would have won that match...
would she have won Wimbledon too?
hm, maybe tennis isn't that logic...

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

My head says Callens but my heart says Harkleroad. So just to break the trend, I'll back Harkleroad to win in 3.

dont know wat sort of form harkleroad will be in and although callens has been slumping she is the better grass courter so i say callens will win in 2 sets.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Harkleroad needs more matches, she got routed by Zheng this week.

Callens 6-1, 6-4.

Maybe if Els gets a couple of wins here, the old feeling will come back

God I hope she gets it, otherwise....well, its too awful to contemplate
