We are on the eve of tennis’ grandest tournament the championships Wimbledon. As always there will be strawberries and cream, there will be rain and there will be great tennis.


The debate going into Wimbledon is weather or not Roger Federer can win his 6th straight Wimbledontitle. He has been far from his best this year and is coming off an embarrassing loss to Rafael Nadal in the French Open Final. All the talk has been whether Federer can win in Paris, but to me we ought to talk about Nadal Winning Wimbledon He made last years final pushing Federer to a 5th set. Just last week he claimed his first title on grass. Odds are Nadal wins at Wimbledon before Federer wins in Paris, and Nadal WILL win this year and he will be the first man to win the French and Wimbledon back to back since Bjorn Borg in 1980.

Not so fast though Federer may not even make the final. The man Nadal beat Novak Djokovic will have his say in the proceedings. Djokovic is already a major champion this season in Australia


The Women’s draw is wide open, The Williams sisters have shown very little form this season but have a proven record but right now the favourite has to be Maria Sharapova, a former Wimbledon champion.

The tradition and pageantry of the championships begins Monday.
