They really have a bad draw. Sugiyama, Srebotnik, Jankovic.
Too bad, im not a brit but i always root for them especially during Wimbledon.

Sreobtnik lost to Malek in the first round of 's-Hertogenbosch, so seems beatable. Klosel is beatable, and if Cavaday has to play Hingis in her career, it might as well be on her first match back after an injury lay-off.

The girls have just as much chances as in previous years. I was impressed by Katie O'Brien and Elena Baltacha at Eastbourne, but neither has a game for the Top 50 at present, though they should be able to make Top 100 soon I hope.

It's irrelevant the draws the Brits get. They're not serious contenders for men's nor women's titles regardless of the draws.

Ahhhh.Srebotnik plays a lot better after she has a bad loss.That's my opinion.Allthough she can choke major and that's what the problem is.

Well it has to be expected. None of the Brits have a good enough ranking to be seeded so they should be lucky that they didnt get players such as Serena, Venus, Sharapova, Henin, or even Mauresmo.

They don't deserve the wildcards in the first place. Most of them.

Well, it is a grand-slam and they are professionals. Tough draws should be expected. If they wanted an "easy" win they could have played a 10K instead. Wimbledon is a Brie-Free Zone unfortunately.

Excuse me Andy Murray is a contender :mad:

He is just back from injury, here we go again, destroy that boys spirit just like you did Henmans, then see what he wins. BTW he's scottish, doesn't he keep making that point.

Anne has zero chance of a win, unless Jankovic gets injured. A fully fit should win this in 2 in less than an hour, something similar to Anne's 1st round last year against Sprem, 6-1 6-1

Naomi may give Hingis one or two little problems but Hingis, even rusty will be too strong. A closeish set and a quick enough one. Say 6-2 6-4

Bally's game is suited to this surface and has beaten Srebotnik before at a slam outside of Wimbledon :eek: but she's not as good as she was then and Srebotnik is better. Elena has heart but just won't be able to consistently hit with Srebotnik over an entire match. Srebotnik in 3

O'Brien played some of the best tennis of her life in Eastbourne defeating some top 100 players, living with a top 20 player on the centre court. Kloesel has a few good shots but is overall just an average baseliner who hasn't been having the greatest of years. Katie will win in 2 tight sets

South seems to get inspired on grass. Beating Schiavone here last year was a big upset and caused another suprise in Eastbourne last week taking out big serving former top 10er Molik in a 3rd set breaker. Sugiyama has played nearly a rit every year at Wimbedon since 2003 and they always give her trouble but they can never close her out. I expect the same thing to happen with this one. Ai coming from behind to win in 3

Not this stupid argument again.

I think all 5 WC's this year are totally justifiable.

Naomi, is a great prospect. Still a junior has won her 1st 25k this year beating Knapp and Spears. Beat Bardina in Brimingahm. Has moved from 500 to 230 in 12 months.

Katie has had a consistent year in the past 12 months shes won a 25k been runner up in a further 2 and her week in eastbourne this week has shown she can beat good players on grass.

Bally coming back from injury, only been playing since march. Has reached 3rd round of Wimbledon and Aus.

Since wimbledon last year Mel hasn't had a good time except for winning her 1st 25k but recently shes turned it around with 2 wins over top 100 players.

Anne has been the british number 1 on and off since 2002, shes not had her best year but an ok one.

I hope we all lose first round to be honest, especially that git Andy Murray. Maybe then Sue Barker and the rest of them will talk about something interesting for a change. :yawn:

I always root for the Brits on the women's side. I did root for Henman but he made me sick after a while.
