counting down to wimbledon 2005

After recovering from the clay courts stretch and the less exciting warm up matches on grass courts, we are just 5 days away from the Grand Slam in Wimbledon.

Again we have Roger Federer and Andy Roddick as the top two seeds. French Open champ, Rafael Nadal, is seeded forth. Although he was knocked out in the first round at Halle right after his winning in Roland Garros, I believe he will fast regaining his momentum for the upcoming Grand Slam and perform even better than last year (he crashed out in the third round).

However, my main focus in Wimbledon is definitely Maria Sharapova. Nothing is sweeter than to see her retaining her championship here. She proves that she is the princess of grass court recently by winning the Birmingham title. Her toughest competition in Wimbledon is none other than Justine Henin-Hardenne. Somehow I just feel that Justine is on the verge to regain her top ranking although I wanted badly Sharapova to hit the #1.

My bet for the men and women singles this year got to be Federer and Justine (although my ideal champs are Rafa and Sharapova).
