Welcome to the green lawns of SW19 for the season's third Grand Slam. This Slam is very wide open with a whole host of players, including Serena, Venus, Molik, Harkleroad, favourites to walk away with the title. It should be an exciting tournament!

Hantuchova won here last year and is sitting pretty at #4 in the rankings at the moment - can she defend her title after her recent dip of form?

Tatjana Takes Down Serena

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/00CsaER2Kr3hc/340x.jpg

Unseeded German Tatjana Malek produced what she said was her best win of the season when she defeated World Number 1 and twice grand slam champion, Serena Williams, in the first round of Wimbledon. Williams, who has been riding high at the top of the rankings for over half a year and won Roland Garros this season too, was one of the favourites too take this title home but Malek gave an inspired performance on centre court to upset the form book.

Malek closed out the match 75 64, recovering from being a break down in both sets, after just a little over 80 minutes of play. Next up for her will be Australian tenth seed Alicia Molik, who has had a great season, winning her first title in contrast with the German, who was slumped to the lower side of the top 20. She has also not won a title since season 1.

"Its amazing to get this win" said a delighted Malek "Serena is a legend as far as this game goes so to deliver a win against her is really good, especailly after the season Im having. Its been really dissapointing, at the end of the first season I was close the number 1 spot but now Im in danger of falling out of the top 20. I still feel I can compete with the girls at the top so Im hoping to climb up the ranks in the second part of the year"

"I know I have the game inside me, today showed that. With some more consistency ill start to get deeper in the tournaments. Im hoping to end my title drought sometime soon too, a few more wins here would be a great start, Im determined to climb back up the ranks"

Malek comes from nowhere to take the title. She hadn't won a title since Montreal back in Season 1, so this is the end of a long drought for her! SHe played great tennis all week, and she had a brutal draw, with Serena, Molik and Cornet in her first 3 matches. Kuzy will be disappointed to be the bridesmaid yet again, but still a great week for her!
