Who will be Court No. 2's biggest casualty this year?

Being the "Graveyard of Champions", surely, someone will fall for it this year.

Is that the reason why this court is not covered by the Wimby stream?

Don't write him off just yet! He's 2 sets up so it's a long way back for stakhovsky...

All your fault then!
Not Ferrer so, I don't know who else... I think maybe Hewitt instead.

Ferrer is not a former champion, so it couldn't be him. Unless Federer gets put on Court 2, the only man it could be is Hewitt. There are a few it could be on the women's side, though.

Not many champions in the draw. Just Hewitt and Federer.
The latter won't play on court #2, ergo Hewitt is your man!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Who will be Court No. 2's biggest casualty this year?

Sadly, signs are pointing to Hewitt, as he and Federer are the only men's Champions in the draw and surely Federer wil not be put on Court No.2. (Can you imagine the pompous arrogant guy in his ostentatious conceited cardigan strolling out in Court No.2? ) I hope they don't put Lleyton on Court No. 2!!!!!

And on the women's side, poor Amelie Mauresmo is ripe for the fall. However, she wasn't even given a big show court today...relegated to court No. 7 (huh?) so maybe she can avoid Court No.2 by virtue of being so unworthy of a larger show court. So that leaves Maria, Venus, Serena, and my personal pick, Lindsay, for the Court No. 2 burial this year.

Davydenko has fallen on the graveyard in round one. Well he has not had good results at wimbledon but he is still the fourth seed.
