Re: who will be the Wimbledon runner up?

Unless I see otherwise this week...Roddick is #2 on grass behind Federer and if he is lucky enough to be in the other half than he is favourite to reach the final imo.

I'd like to think Henman can follow up Goran's comments on him this year...but I have noticed that each year since 2001 Henman has been less successful on grass...so the omens aren't good

I'm expecting big things from Stepanek ( ), Karlovic (if fit), Hewitt (now resurgent) and maybe a few dark horses in the form of Tursunov, Moodie, Tojo, Grosjean.

...forgot Ancic - he will be tough to beat this year on grass.

Re: who will be the Wimbledon runner up?

Frankly, I think Dima should be on this list. His play is getting better and better (okay- discount the MC clay tournaments but during RG it was good) and he has a game that is great for grass.

I like a lot of players.

Silly to ask now since we don't know what the draw will be like.

And if Wimbledon pushes Rafa too far down in the seeds I'm going to boycott.

Re: who will be the Wimbledon runner up?

I was just thinking about the seeding. Even though Andy is the number 2 grass court player, there is no way they would give the number 5 player the second seed. Probably forth seed. It will be interesting, if they set Roddick up to face Roger in the finals or semis.

Re: who will be the Wimbledon runner up?

I think Hewitt or Ancic if they're not on the same side of Federer's half.

My prediction :
Agassi - lose in 1 st round.(I love Agassi but it's gonna happen)
Roddick - 4th round at least but i don't think he will reach to final round.
Nadal - he can't through to QF for sure (4th round is the best he can do)
Kiefer - SF the best but i think he isn't good enough for runner-up.
Nalbandian - 4th rd or better
Murry - 4th rd or better
Berdych - He won't through to 4th rd.
Safin - unpredictable hehehehe
