    Hewitt has no chance

    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

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

    Roddick is only 25

    Hewitt has just turned 27

    Safin is 28

    None of them are two old.

    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)

    No actually, on both counts.

    On grass?

    Really?

    What?

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

    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.

    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.

    Interesting how unpredictable this tournament has been.
