Hello folks,

Another year, another tournament from the only current Grand Slam tournament on Grass.

It's the 125th version of The Championships, Wimbledon.

From June 20-July 3, have some strawberries and cream and watch some tennis from SW19, All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

One big name from the ladies singles won't be in the tournament.

Belgium legend and former two-time Wimbledon semifinalist Kim Clijsters withdrew due to a foot injury.

Hello folks,

another tournament from the only Grand Slam tournament on Grass.



www.wimbledon.com (http://www.wimbledon.com)

And there was a time when all four majors were on grass.

Anyway, my crystal ball says Federer and...ahh don't really care about the lady's draw.

Nadal and Wozniacki

Sleepers - Soderling and Serena ( even she has to be a sleeper after not playing for a year. )

Anyone but Federer.

Ideally I would like to see a new name win their first major, but if someone who has won before wins it hopefully it'll be Nadal.

I don't suppose there's any chance Roddick can win it but that would be awesome. Don't really care about the ladies but Serena maybe.

When Andy gets knocked out I'll be rooting hard for Rafa. I'd really like to see him keep winning.

Bern baby Bern!
06-20-11, 01:34 PM
On the Women's side, I would love to see Sharapova win it, but you never know which Sharapova is going to show up each match, especially her inconsistency in her serve. I don't know if Serena has the adrenaline to play 7 straight singles matches and I don't think Venus can get to finals either. My pick is Sharapova.

Men's - Djokovic, he should be well rested and ready to compete. I do see Murray making run to the finals.

Great match between Wozniacki-Cibulkova. Tennis awards the aggressors....Cibulkova went for it with her powerful forehand shots and she got rewarded. Amazing that someone barely over 5 feet can have that strong a forehand. Wozniacki continues to play way too defensive, and unless she changes that she will never win a major IMO.

No surprise with both Williams...neither has played in forever and their games arent anywhere near the top level right now. If I had to pick, I think Sharapova will win this tournament now although she has to deal w/Cibulkova next. Azarenka looks good as does Lisicki.

Rafa will be fine, although it sucks for him that he will have two tough opponents to get thru to get to the semis...while Murray will be able to breeze thru. That could be a factor if those two do meet in the semis.

For the Men's draw, can't we just give Nadal, Federer, Djokovic, and Murray byes to the semifinals? We all know they're going to be there anyway. It's so predictable.

Dominika Cibulkova is 5'3", BTW.

Still, the Slovakian likes to dictate the play with her aggressiveness. Cibulkova had 44 winners and a +13 differential between winners and unforced errors.

Her serve can be a problem since she served 10 double faults against Caroline Wozniacki, but she goes for it.

I love Kvitova, she was my pick to face Sharapova in the finals, I'm still holding onto that. The way they both played today it will be hard for anyone to beat them in quarters and semis although Bartoli could give Sharapova some trouble and Azarenka could face Kvitova.

Djok still my pick to win it all, he played such dominant tennis today and it looks like he rebounded well from his last match. I like JMDP against Nadal today. They're into the 3rd set, looks grueling.. Federer and Djok looks like theyre in a collision course to face each other in the semis, what a match that would be.

Petra Kvitova does remind me of Mary Pierce with the look with the headband and also her power game, but with a better serve. If the Czech star improves her movement, she can win Wimbledon this year.

However, Kvitova is facing Bulgarian star Tsvetana Pironkova who knocked off Venus in the 4th round and 2010 runner-up Russian Vera Zvonereva in straight sets in the third round. Pironkova is showing the whole world that her run to the 2010 semifinals was no fluke.

As for Marion Bartoli, she's a gritty player who can play through injury. Rising German Sabine Lisicki will have her hands full with the scrappy French player.

For Victoria Azarenka, so far, she has kept her temper in check. She is a better player when she keeps her cool.

The men? Mardy Fish is keeping the American flag flying high, but he has a tougher assignment against the winner of Rafa Nadal/Juan Martin del Potro in the next round.

Poor Jo-Wilifred Tsonga. My sleeper pick in the Gentlemen's Singles takes on Roger Federer in the quarterfinals.

Bern baby Bern!
06-27-11, 03:11 PM
Nadal moves on to face Mardy Fish, should be a good match but you have to give Nadal the edge, I give Fish a set though.
Djok I think in 3 vs Bernie, Federer in 4 vs Tsonga, Murray in 4 vs Lopez.

I picked Jo-Wilifred Tsonga as my sleeper pick in the Gentlemen's Singles and he's through to the semifinals.

What I liked about Tsonga is that he has talent and can move around the court very well. He's improving his adaptability in all surfaces including the red clay.

I also liked his mental toughness and his fight especially today against Roger Federer.

Down two sets to the 6-time Wimbledon champion, he kept fighting and was focused to get those wins in the third, fourth and fifth. He just didn't wilt under the pressure.

If the Frenchman can use his power and also keep his poise intact in the final two matches (he's facing Novak Djokovic next), Tsonga has a great shot of winning Wimbledon.

It is starting to look like he's no longer the player nobody wanted to face. These other guys are hungry - Federer has done it all more than once. The drive doesn't seem to be there either. I really like Nadal's/Tsonga's chances.

It's still holding: Maria Sharapova vs. Petra Kvitova in the Ladies' Singles final.

Sharapova served 13 Double Faults in her semifinal match against Sabine Lisicki, but still won in straight sets.

Meanwhile, Kvitova had 40 winners and 9 aces in her three set win over Victoria Azarenka.

Tennis rankings are funny. If Nadal wins he'll hold the last 3 GS titles, beat Djokavic in the process, have a chance for the slam at the US Open but somehow still lose world #1 ranking to Djokovic anyway. :lol:

I know it is formula based on tournamnets over the last year or something and Djokavic had that increadible run between the Australian and French but it still would be funny.

Its all about how you defend your points and Novak beat Rafa twice on the clay this season, whch elevated his points from the previous year...combined with his Grand Slam win in Australia.

The ranking dont matter all that much though. You play tough matches all the way through a Championships and if you are good enough, you will beat whoever you face and whenever.

Tennis really has no offseason which means that there's a slew of tournaments in which a player who is good, healthy, and is on a hot streak, but who isn't necessarily the best, can be #1. The system rewards players who are consistently good week in and week out and it's set up that way because the revenues flowing in from all those tournaments are the sport's lifeblood; the more the better. (It's sort of like giving the championship to the team with the best regular season record.)

Having said that, few would dispute that Djokovic is the #1 player at the moment even if he lost to Nadal at the Wimbledon Finals.

Congratulations Petra Kvitova.

The Czech youngster is the 2011 Ladies Singles champion at Wimbledon defeating 2004 winner Maria Sharapova in straight sets 6-3, 6-4.

19 winners to 13 unforced errors for the 21-year old Czech southpaw who gave Sharapova her only sets losses in the tournament.

Kvitova completely outplayed Sharapova today. Sharapova had no answer for the incredible fightback from Kvitova. Her serve didn't help her either with 6 double faults.

Kvitova is the first Czech to win Wimbledon's Ladies Singles since Jana Novotna did it in 1998.

Novotna and 9-time winner Martina Navratilova were on hand to see Kvitova earned the dish.

I'm sure he wasn't but at some point, that has to stop being an excuse with Rafa doesn't it? I am a huge fan, and I love to watch the Spaniard play, but I'm getting a little annoyed hearing about his injuries in every, single Slam. Other guys on the tour have similar issues I'm sure, I don't need to hear about it all the time.

For my money he's the best tennis player in the world, but I'd like to see him rise above these nagging injuries once.
