just wondering, forget your favourites, who do you think will actually win wimby, and would you be willing to put money on? there are a few favs, including venus sharapova and justine, and many many more, but like i said who do you think if you were commentating do you think you would pick to win?

It's hard to predict this year's winner but I think either Venus will retain or Justine will take it to complete a career slam

Venus is obviously the best pick, just because her record here the last six years is so phenomenal. But she does have off-days. See 2004. But she's the safest pick. I think if you're in it to make money, Vaidisova should be your pick. You get pretty good odds and she has the tools, if not the experience.

Hopefully Venus... :)

i can't honestly say who will.venus prolly has the edge right now but maria,jhh,kim,and amelie are all capable of winning,it just comes down to who is playing the best tennis and is the most mentally strong.

If Nastya can maintain the level of play she's had this past week, she would be my favorite to win the title.

Justine, Amélie or Maria, I have a feeling Venus will lose early.

I think that if Justine can get to the quarters unscathed then she will take the title. It's going to be really interesting, Maria, Justine, Venus, Amelie I think want this title the most. I want a MARIA/VENUS versus JUSTINE final, with Justine playing sublime tennis over the fortnight and completing the career slam. I can picture her with the dish. It's got to be her time!

It's Venus' title to lose. She can beat everyone on her side of the draw and has never lost to anyone on grass that she might face.

She plays her game, she takes home her 4th Wimbledon title.

I really think Wimbledon is the most open it has been for years all it takes is for one player to find their form at the right time and voila! We have a new champion.

I think Sharapova is going to win.

I am putting my money on Justine based on her results of late. If she gets Venus in the final I think she will finally breakthrough.

I am putting my money on Justine based on her results of late. If she gets Venus in the final I think she will finally breakthrough.Well, if ever Justine were going to win Wimbledon, then this is the year to do it.

The tournament is missing three big hitters in Davenport, Serena, and Pierce all of whom would be capable of taking her out on grass. With them out, her chances went up astronomically.

In addition, Justine's half of the draw is pretty light and given that Venus Maria and Mauresmo are all in the top half and all have better, more consistent grass court results. Three out of four of the top contenders she would likely need to defeat are on the other side. And well, Kim is no competition for her in a grand slam. Hingis, who is a former champion, has not played on grass in five years and I can't imagine that anyone ever saw her as a serious contender.

She's been blessed with a good draw, let's see what she makes of it!

Venus. Can't believe people actually think maria will win.

I really think Maria will win..Venus is still a lil bit rusty and unpredictable :unsure:

IMO Masha is equally rusty and unpredictable...i.e. a loss to JamJam at Birmingham. Also, loss to Safina at RG.

Venus and Roger.

I'd like to see Andy win it. But, he's not having
a very good year, and he's not 100% healthy
either.

If not Venus, I think Maria has a great shot at it.

I hope they meet, they had one of the best matches
ever last year.

Please, please, please, no JHH.

Nothing against Henin, but she's winning too much!! :eek: :sad: It's becoming a little annoying :o So I would have to agree :lol:

You can't argue with history.. I honestly think Venus will win. JHH a close second, Maria third.

i honestly think this is justine's year to shine at wimbledon and complete her careerslam. she didnt play as much tournie's in the clayseason, she won everything in straights at the french and she won a grasscourtpreparation and has a feel of the grass without getting injuries etc. Normally her health is against her but she seems to be healthy now. This year is her chance to take it definetly, lets hope she does.:scared:

We all know its really unpredictable.

But I really love Kim to win it all.

Noone can pretend Venus' win was predictable..I really thought she was going to win this RG and the RGs in 2004 and 2005 but it never happened. OK she's unbelievable on grass but remember in 2004 against Sprem... Plus I'm afraid of Maria..
BTW I'm a Venus' fan so I just try to be objective..If she beat Sharapova(teh only real threat to me)it's ok, she wins it all

Honestly I don't have a clue but since I generally predict Justine to win every slam I may as well go with her here as well.
