wimbledon 2005 (day 2)

Justine Henin-Hardenne crashed out in the first round! She's the hot favourite after winning the French Open just a month ago and she lost to a 76 ranked Greek player, Eleni Daniilidou in a tough 3 matches.

Defending champion, Maria Sharapova has no problem in the first round. With an easy win of 6-2, 6-2 against Spaniard Llagostera Vives, Sharapova is going to play against 15 year-old Sesil Karatancheva who beats Mauresmo in the French Open. So, this is going to be an exciting match. It's going to be the battle of the teenagers. However, with the confidence and crowd support, I believe Sharapova is going to pull it off in the second round.

On the other hand, Rafael Nadal is keeping his Wimbledon title dream alive. The grasscourt might not be his best surface but should he win here, he's going to be the first man to take the Roland Garros-Wimbledon double in the same year since tennis great Bjorn Borg. Keep an eye on this guy.

TIm Henman, the crowd favourite, managed to squeeze through the first round after playing five sets in a three and a half hours match against J. Nieminen. With the crowd support, he overcomes the first two sets defeat and ended with a win and standing ovation from his homeground fans.
