Hey y’all! I can NOT believe that Wimbledon has already started! I feel like I was just at the U.S. Open the other day!
This post is coming hot off the heels of Roger Federer’s near-death defeat today at the hands of Alejandro Falla. Not sure how Falla didn’t pull that one off. Either way, here are my predictions that I’ve made after looking at the draw (before Roger played today).
5 Roddick vs. 2 Nadal
Champion: 2 Nadal
1 S. Williams vs. 2 V. Williams
Champion: 1 S. Williams
I’m wondering when the door is going to start closing for the Williams sisters when it comes to Wimbledon, but frankly, they are still major threats, and with Serena winning in Australia already this year, it would be stupid to bet against her. The only other person I could see making a run is Justine Henin, since this tournament is the whole reason she came out of retirement anyway.
After watching Roger today, I dare say I don’t see him getting as far as I thought. I had Roddick beating him in the semis, but I guess that will remain to be seen. Both men are somewhat iffy right now, so let’s hope they get to that round and make it a repeat of last year’s final.
I’ll be back after this fortnight with the results!

(PS I totally called Serena vs. Maria Sharapova back in 2004 before Maria had ever won a major, or was THAT talked about. I had Serena beating her, but I called it nonetheless!)
