It\(***)s hard to imagine anyone challenging 16-time Grand
Slam champion and world number one Serena Williams, who appears to be in the
form of her life.
The American holds the mental edge after a crushing
display at Roland Garros, and looks on course to claim a fourth major in five
Williams is on a 31-match winning streak with a
75-4 win-loss record in the past 12 months and has the added comfort of knowing
that her game is ideally suited to the All England Club
Maria Sharapova can\(***)t be feeling confident, after
entering the French Open final having lost 12 consecutive matches to Williams.
At 31, Williams is already the oldest woman to win a
major since Martina Navratilova claimed a ninth Wimbledon singles title in 1990.
Perhaps it will be a little more competitive in the
men\(***)s round. As usual Great British hope Andy Murray joins tennis\(***)s \(***)Big Four\(***) Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal
Twenty-two nations, from Egypt to Ecuador, from
Romania to Mexico, from Croatia to South Africa, from Hungary to Argentina have
all triumphed at Wimbledon, but England have failed to produce a male champion
for over 75 years.
The famous four have now won 32 of the last 33
grand slams - and so far no-one has come close to ending that reign.
At 31, 17-times grand slam champion and Halle
Open champion Roger Federer is a perennial crowd favourite.
World number one Novak Djokovic, winner in 2011,
will be chasing another title, and Rafael Nadal will
be eager to show that last year\(***)s astonishing second-round loss was just a blip
in his career.
With Nadal seeded fifth this year a clash
between the top four could be happening as early as the quarter-finals.
But don\(***)t discount Tomas Berdych, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga,
Del Potro and David Ferrer who all possess the talent to finally break into
that top four
