What to Watch For

Roger Federer Takes Aim at a Record Eighth Wimbledon Title

No men's player in history has ever won eight championships at Wimbledon, but Roger Federer will attempt to become the first this summer in London.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion has conquered tennis' most prestigious major seven times since 2003, tying Pete Sampras and William Renshaw for the most titles all time. Federer is also tied with Bjorn Borg as the only two men in the Open era to have won five straight crowns at the All England Club.

But it's important to keep in mind that this is the third time in the past four years that Federer will enter Wimbledon with just one singles title to his name for the season.

Unlike in 2010 and 2011, it took Federer until mid-June to win his first tournament this year. He won the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany last weekend.

As Federer nears age 32, history is not on the Swiss legend's side. Arthur Ashe was the only man older than Federer is right now to have won the men's singles title at Wimbledon in the Open era. Ashe was just five days away from his 32nd birthday when he won it all in 1975. 

Federer will turn 32 on August 8. The good news though is that he is currently the second-oldest men's champion in Wimbledon history, winning just a month before his 31st birthday in 2012.

 

Can Anyone Stop Serena Williams?

Five-time women's Wimbledon champion Serena Williams is the overwhelming favorite to win her sixth career championship at the All England Club this summer.

The oldest world No. 1 in the history of women's tennis, the 31-year-old American is in the midst of a 31-match winning streak that began at the Miami Masters back in March. Since winning Wimbledon last summer, Williams has dropped just three matches in all.

Which women's contender is the biggest threat to Serena Williams in 2013?

She's won three of the last four Grand Slams and can inch closer to Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova on the all-time list with a 17th major win.

At the moment, Williams' game is firing on all cylinders. Her serve continues to be a huge weapon and should give her a major advantage on the grass. Plus, her on-court movement has been sensational as well. 

Those two things, combined with her unrivaled determination, power and strength make her the woman to beat this summer. 

Fellow top seeds Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova no doubt have the talent required to upend Williams, but can they overcome the psychological barrier of going up against a five-time champ who's in top form on Centre Court?
