Ok so it's actually called The Championships and it's held at SW19 but everyone calls it Wimbledon so if I publish a guide to The Championships no one will read it apart from a few tennis snobs purists (hi there!). Do they really still hold it on grass?

Men:
Nadal is again snubbed as the meaningless top seed but Federer's (usually) the grass court king. There will be some interest in Murray and Soderling looms (he's a loomer) but this is all about the top two. Roddick? Sooo last year. Djokovic? Already an afterthought. Hewitt? Hmmm.

June 11, 2010 - United Kingdom - Tennis - AEGON Classic - Birmingham - 11/6/10..Belgium's Yanina Wickmayer reacts during her quarter final match.
Women:
Venus and Serena Williams as usual. Take your pick.

Henin, Clijsters and Sharapova will make the headlines but no one actually expects them to win. Dementieva is out as if that makes a difference and fellow Russians Kuznetsova and Safina are woeful. Wozniacki always looks good but still can't make her final breakthrough. Azarenka can't concentrate long enough to win seven matches. Jankovic is all talk and Ivanovic will probably go out in the first round.
