I think Serena will win this year, after beating Maria in QF/SF/F. It won't be pretty.

If they don't play on Court 2 they'll be fine. :shrug: Who knows...

:haha: I love how all of them have modelling pics except for Lindsay :awww:


Anyway, in answer to the question, the most aggressive players are the ones rewarded the most on grass, and they are Serena/Venus/Lindsay. I think overall, Venus has the best chance.

I really think Serena will be so pissed about RG that she'll steamroll everyone en route to a victory, though Venus, Sharapova and a few others could give her a run for her money.

maria serena and then venus
amelie and lindsay have no chance
the only other player who can win is ana if she doesnt face maria or serena

Once Venus is in the Quarters, forget it, she's bringing that trophy home.

If she loses on court 2 or 3, because they'll make her play there (:tape:), I see Maria or Serena.

Venus.

She has so much confidence at this event. It's the one tournament every year that she is the favorite IMHO, no matter what her form is, and this year isn't any different.

Hopefully, it will be a great tournament.

I think Venus and Maria are the favorites this year. Serena can surely win it all if she puts her mind to it, she is also one of the top grass players.

As for Mauresmo, I think if she gets to 4th round it will be good. Lindsay, I don't know, she is a great grass player but hasnt played much recently and has been overplayed by the top players this year.

Maria Sharapova will not win for sure.

Maria Sharapova will not win for sure.

Does that mean that she won't or it's not certain if she will?

Venus, Serena, Lindsay or Amelie winning would be great:)

Anyone but Maria, right? ;)

yea, her and Anna C. but it's a given that she is losing early:)

Ill say Maria. Serena tends to let her emotions get the best of her.

To Bethanie Mattek.

I've got the draw right here in my head :lol:

To be Honest I think Serena is gonna win this year
Yeah Venus can be extremely dangerous to any player on grass but I think she won't defeat Serena at Wimbledon I really don't think so.

Based on formI think Maria and Serena both of them have a really good chance to win this year
....but Vee is the one to watch in this tour no matter how form she was right now

Serena, but Venus is always a top threat. I don't think Davenport or Sharapova will make it out of the QF, and Mauresmo could make the semis or lose in the 2nd round.

Lindsay has a good chance in the final if she can beat Venus.

It's my believe that Maria has the best shot at winning Wimbledon this year.

wow...
i just realize that Wimbly has 5 different champions in this Era...

Australian Open - Linds - Serena - Justine - Amelie
Roland Garros - Serena Williams
Wimbledon - Lindsay - Venus - Serena - Maria - Amelie
USO - Serena - Venus - Justine - Svetlana - Kuznetsova
and what a loner Serena was at the French

You're a little off...if Justine is listed for the Aussie and the US, she' s definitely there for Roland Garros.

Active slam champions:

AUS: Davenport, S. Williams, Mauresmo, Sharapova
FRA: S. Williams, Ivanovic
WIM: Davenport, V. Williams, S. Williams, Sharapova, Mauresmo
USO: Davenport, S. Williams, V. Williams, Kuznetsova, Sharapova
