wimbledon 2005 (day 1)

I'm all excited! Nothing is better than a Grand Slam Championships on lawn court.

Roger Federer is all up to defend his men's title with the first round win over Paul-Henri Mathieu. Other favourites such as Hewitt, Davydenko, Safin also done pretty well in the first round.

Poor Paradorn Srichaphan, the once highly celebrated Thai player, played so badly against Safin losing in straight sets. It is a bit disappointing because his games completely slumped this year.

On the ladies' singles, favourites like Davenport, Clijsters and Mauresmo played fantastic games to move comfortably into the second round.

The games to watch out today are definitely involving Rafael Nadal (the French Open champ), Maria Sharapova (the defending champion), Andy Roddick, Justine Henin-Hardenne and Serena Williams. Crowd favourite, Tim Henman is going to play his first round today as well later in the evening.

My prediction for today's matches (Round 1): All top favourites will safely go into the second round.
