As I read the utter crap that some so-called experts write about their picks for Wimbly, I thought "Why not us from Tennisforum?" I'm sure a lot of folks here have more insight than many journalists.
So here's the deal: Post the names of 5 favorites and 5 outsiders to win Wimbly 2009, and, more importantly, please comment on each of them, why you think they could win. Ideally, comment for each player should be 300 to 500 characters.

Venus - This is Wimbledon. She could enter on crutches and still be a leading contender.
Safina (only because she's No.1)
Cibulkova (she's in a weak third section of the draw)
Razzano (again, in the third section)
Shouldn't expect too much:

Venus - her record at Wimbledon speaks for itself.
Serena - is a fighter and can never be discounted at a Grand Slam.
Dinara - is world Number 1, not a favourite for her but I wouldn't discount a Number 1
Maria - has the game to win at Wimbledon. Never knows when to quit in match. Can't be discounted.
