The women's Wimbledon final should feature plenty of contrast.

You have the counter-puncher in Aggie Radwanska against the powerful Serena Williams. You have one player with no grand slam final experience against the veteran with 13 singles slam titles.

Both have a lot to play for and something to lose. Williams hasn't won a major in two years, and she wants this more than ever. Radwanska will be No. 1 in the world with a win, not to mention it would be her first major.

My record for Wimbledon this year is 58-24, not too shabby heading into the two finals. Here's my prediction for the women's final.

 

No. 3 Aggie Radwanska vs. No. 6 Serena Williams

My first thought is that this will be a blowout. Williams is too strong, and should be able to break Radwanska's serve at will. On top of that, Radwanska is battling a cold and has been under the weather the last few days.

In sports you always like to think anyone can win on a given day, and Radwanska has been playing really well throughout the tournament. Williams was the heavy favorite to beat Sam Stosur in last year's U.S. Open final and lost in straight sets.

Will the nerves get to Serena again?

No. I just can't see this match being anything other than a Serena Williams blowout.
 

Winner: Williams in two sets.
