Hewitt is done. He doesn't have a chance to win a major anymore. I'd be shocked if he ever even cracks the top 10 again in his career. A shame, he's so talented. I think the marriage did it to him. But he does have a hot wife

As much as I like Hewitt, I think the most he'll make is to the quarters. The guys got the tenacity and all but the game isn't up par with people these days.
Also, I'd love to see a Roddick - Hewitt match.

Tsonga, Gasquet- Injuries

Roddick, Hewitt, Safin: All too old. Their chances are long gone.

Stepanek, Mahut- Serve and volley isn't that effective

Karlovic- Slices kill him. Federer and probably a lot of other players beat on him every time they play.

Tursunov- Not good enough

Federer- He's past his peak.

Players solid enough to get far or win:

Youzhny

Murray

Nadal

Gonzales

Tsonga, Gasquet- Injuries


ok, we'll see if they're fit to play on time.


Roddick, Hewitt, Safin: All too old. Their chances are long gone.


Roddick is only 25

Hewitt has just turned 27

Safin is 28

None of them are two old.


Stepanek, Mahut- Serve and volley isn't that effective


On grass?

really?

Mahut nearly won queens last year.

Stepanek was recovering from paralysis of the right side of his body last year.

The previous year he got to the quarters, and was only beaten by Bjorkman because he was unwell, (flu)


Karlovic- Slices kill him. Federer and probably a lot of other players beat on him every time they play.


No actually, on both counts.


Tursunov- Not good enough


On grass?

Really?


Federer- He's past his peak.


What?

He just got to the final of RG?!?!?!


Players solid enough to get far or win:

Youzhny

Murray

Nadal

Gonzales

Murray and Gonzales have absoltely NO chance of winning.NONE.Not a snowballs chance in hell.

roddicks is always a favorite going into wimbledon. I think the big guns for wimbledon are going to be nadal, federer, djokovic and roddick. Gasquet is such a panzee he wont make it as far as last year.

Tipsarevic?
I was thinking the same thing. Tipsarevic is my darkhorse this year. Gulbis' game seems to fit grass.

Karlovic is ranked #21 ... I don't think he's a darkhorse anymore, but I do expect him to be in the 2nd week.

He (Safin) won't get past the second round.

Interesting how unpredictable this tournament has been.
