Welcome to London! We are not here for the British Museum, the Millennium Eye, the Big Ben or the many Starbucks that London has. Instead, we are here for the third Grand Slam of the year. The grass season is short, but with Eastbourne, Birmingham and Rosmalen, players have had a chance to show what they are worth on the most slippery of surfaces. Will Venus defend her title? Can Dokic recover from her surprising loss in qualifying? Will a Briton replace Baltacha in this year's final? How will the young wild cards Agnieszka Radwanska and Viktoria Azarenka do? Or is this once more the time for players like Dementieva, Ivanovic, Clijsters and Hingis to shine? Vote now for who you want to win as The Championships continue.

Will Flavia Pennetta be the Flavour of the Month? The Italian hotshot is not only the girlfriend of Carlos MoyŠ, but also a fine tennis player whose looks and game leave many opponents empty-handed. But Elena Dementieva has often been in a league of her own, outperforming nearly everyone on the tour. Her popularity is seemingly endless, with many adoring the Russian and with Mommy Vera's daughter suffering the mutterings of only a small, insignificant number of haters. Together with the now eliminated Ana Ivanovic, Dementieva was the absolute top favourite for the title. With the Serbian ousted by Elena's friend Anastasia Myskina, a first Wimbledon title is closer than ever.

[Real-life] H2H: No previous records

Anastasia Myskin is waiting in the top half semi final. She will be rooting for her Russian friend, but Flavia Pennetta might have a shot. There is not much to say on previous meetings, as the two never met in real life. A juicy detail? Flavia and Elena form a doubles team on the real tour. And a quite successful one. They radiate enthusiasm and friendship when on court, so needless to say that this match will be played in good spirits.

CooCoo's Prediction:

Still, their friendship will not be as important as a prestigious Wimbledon semi final. Even though Pennetta is a dangerous player, who is capable of taking out almost everyone, Dementieva will be much too strong. The Italian will be scrambling for the points and will be defeated in two quick straight sets.
