    So who will win this year?

    On the mens side, can anyone touch the Fed?

    On the womens, can JH finally win on grass?

    yeah I think that may be the case..... but two players that have impressed me on Grass so far...
    Jankovic, she went one set down to Sharapova and came back to win in Birmingham, ok sharapova is not on form right now, neither is serena williams, but still shes in rich form and on grass could really push henin, so I'm thinking she could do it! The womens is by far the tightest contest.
    As for the mens, well all the men I was looking forward to seeing flopped at queens, Ljubicic and Djokovic that is, but with the exception of Andy Roddick, I think he is the only player on grass that could cause an upset, with the Fed pulling out of halle who knows but I think the Fed will make it five...awsome!! Anyhow, Roddick looked class in queens, he still relies on the big serve but I think the influence conners has had on the other aspects of his game puts him right in the mix, grass suits his game.
    Will be a great comp though.

    history tells us roddick doesn't have a hope in hell of winning wimbledon, 2 many long matches in the early rounds and not enough variety against the top 2. semis yeah, final maybe, can't see him winning it though.

    Federer and Sharapova. Federer without losing a set I'm sure... Sharapova will prolly have to fight for it.
    Nadal won't beat federer on grass until he can adjust his swing to attack at least a little.

    If Federer has an off day against Roddick (provided they both make it that far) Andy has a slight chance.

    I like both Serena and Venus on the grass, but Henin such a solid player she'll be tough to beat.

    Henin just notched her first win over Serena on grass.
    Unfortunately Serena wasn't at her best, playing with 2 injuries, still she put up quite a fight.
