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.

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

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.

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
