Odds On

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/namedImage/12781/player_310577.jpg http://www.tennis.com/players/images/wta/edementieva.jpg http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/namedImage/12781/player_310137.jpg

Well once again MK finds herself as the clear favourite, but as we've seen in the past, it always ends in tears :( The top seed has won two titles and reached another final on grass, so she really is the one to beat, but this is a Slam, so all we can do is keep our fingers crossed. Dementieva has one title and a final in Eastbourne, if MK falls early, she seems unstoppable, unless of course recently decrowned #1 Sharapova has anything to say about it. Masha has Slam-winning credentials and a kind draw, so don't discount her springing an upset this week.

Solid Bets

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/namedImage/12781/player_200137.jpg http://www.tennis.com/players/images/wta/phercog.jpg http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/namedImage/12781/player_130533.jpg
Three top players with a few aces at their disposal, none have had notable results, but this is mainly due to the dominance of Kirilenko and Dementieva. Tammy is a former winner and a 4-acer, surprisingly she has failed to make an impact on grass, but she could produce the goods on her final event on the lawns. Myskina and Hercog remain contenders for each event and are consistent at reaching quarters and semis, that may be as far as they go this week, but then again, you never know.

Outside Chance

Just to let everyone know, on this day 5 years ago, ATC was born, so I just wanted to mark this very emotional occasion :sobbing: We've had lots of different players over the years, some quiet periods and some hectic ones, but I'm pleased that the game has lasted as long as it has, and as long as the players are there, I see no signs of it slowing down. Special mentions go to MH0861, Imperfect Angel and tennisbuddy12 who all competed in the very first event and are still here today :bowdown: Also to Kevin.
