Re: Who do you think will win Wimbledon?

Agree. It was his first slam, and probably his favorite slam, so I think he would work extra hard to defend his title there. Plus he is just playing so well as of late, so as far as I can tell, he would probably has the highest chance there.

Re: Who do you think will win Wimbledon?

very hard to look beyond roger but if the wheels were to fall off then maybe a second for hewitt or a fairytale safin win.

sorry but tim henman, centre court, cheesey smile and union jacks i just cant see it happening as much as i dream or try and would love to see.

i just dont want it to be roddick as back of paper will go over the top for a week here and thats just uk and he will do 10000 interviews saying how surreal it feels and humbling it is to be in such a hall of fame and a year of photo shoots and "surreal" and photo shoots and "awesome and surreal" lmao

Rogi!! Lleyton has NO chance if he meets Rogi, or a decent Serve-Volleyer!!

Re: Who do you think will win Wimbledon?

Tennis will be the winner.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Who do you think will win Wimbledon?

Obviously, Roger is the top favourite. I think Lleyton will be in with a good chance too, if he plays as well as he has this year, at times.

Yeah I'm sure Hewitt has no chance if he runs into a decent serve volleyer like Henman (lmfao, especially a Henman who has just beaten Federer in a semi, ahahaha!).

Re: Who do you think will win Wimbledon?

Why do Hewitt fans always seek the (counter)attack?

Becuase of the percieved unjust comments that are made against him. How can hewitt have no chance agaisnt a decent serve vollyer when he has beaten the likes of Sampras, Federer, Henman, Philippoussis, Dent, Ivanisevic and Rusedski ALL ON GRASS???

Re: Who do you think will win Wimbledon?

I would just like to say that you people are jumping the gun because no grass tournaments have been played yet, and RG hasn't even happened yet, and still you want to predict the winner of Wimbledon. There are too many contenders but I think it is pointless to discuss any of them this early. Any one of Roger, Roddick (Ughh, but I had to mention him), JC, Marc Flip, Andre, Hewitt, Henman, Grosjean, Feliciano, Marat, and Fishy(Heh ), as well as many more have a chance, but a lot can happen between now and Wimbledon so it is better to just wait and see until after the clay swing is over.

Note: I know GWE and others are going to attack my saying Fish as a contender.

because their unsecure
even Roddick fans (another player who isnt very well liked here) arent as fast to remind everyone how great Roddick is

Federer,Roddick, Phillipoussis..........don't think anyone else can win

Re: Who do you think will win Wimbledon?

Wrong Domino I think it's idiotic that people are trying to predict this far out who will win RG, well at least with Wimbledon there are only so few who can win.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
