I will be hoping for some Mugu magic but I'm not very optimistic at this point. Don't like the fact that she didn't play a grass warmup.

Should be an interesting tournament. Just hoping that the seeds stick around for more than a few matches though. Last year was a bit of a disaster.

All of these players, up to and including Kristyna Pliskova, have made the main draw

Denisa Allertova is now the first alternate

Andreescu's withdrawal also means Tsurenko is now the 32nd seed

Her as well? Sucks when they don't bother to do that, doesn't it? :cautious:

Barty, Kvitova or Kerber
Barty and Kvitova have injuries. Keber i just don't see it this year. I think she will get deep maybe
qf or sf.

I am thinking Bertens or Pliskova could contend. That is if both are healthy.

Also if Serena gets her train moving she will be extremely difficult to beat. Still
got the best serve in the womens game.

Hasn't Karolina done pretty awfully at Wimbledon? Let's pull up the wiki... Best performance is a 4th round from last year, and had never been past the 2nd round prior to 2018.

Pliskova sucks at Wimbeldon

Bertens? She doesnt like grass

If Barty & Kvitova are still injuried i will add serena & Konta on the favourites list

My dark pick is Amanda Anisimova! She has to impress NK and she is the right age to win her first GS tournament at 17-18 years old follow the footsteps of Sharapova!

Bertens been hot at times this year. Konta is someone u just don't know about. I think
her game is better suited to HC then grass. If she wins a major i think it will be AO or USO.

What u think about the chances of Julia Görges or Donna Vekić ?? I think either can make it
to the second week

Konta winning a major LOLOLOL. You only get one fluke win in a lifetime. We already witnessed it with Bartoli

Even once we get hold of the draw, it'll likely still be difficult to predict a winner. Not to mention, 2 or 3 match wins could really see a few players work themselves into the draw, especially if they went out early in the few grass tournaments they played this year. I was surprised by players like Mugu, who chose not to play any warm up events, and Sloane who played 1 (and predictably lost her first match). These are the kinds of players who just don't seem motivated unless it's a slam. We'll see if their lack of match play is their undoing though, or if their draw allows them to actually get enough wins to build form and confidence and become a threat from the 2nd week onward.

Kerber knocked out Halep in Eastbourne in two sets, 6-4, 6-3. Kerber is the defending 2018 Wimbledon Champion!

Lisicki loses in qualifying. Oh what happened to you Lisicki
As soon as I saw she'd lost the 2nd set 6-4 after winning the first 6-0, I knew she was done for. She's such an emotional player, I mean, she was crying in her post-match interview the other day and she hadn't even qualified for the main draw yet. I appreciate she has good memories of the grass, and it's her favourite surface, but she really should be making the main draw here if she wants to renew her tennis career.

there are some interesting matches early one.


Are you ****ing kidding me with that top quarter?

SEVEN slam champions with THIRTY SEVEN slams between them. Even if you subtract Serena from that there is still six slam champs with FOURTEEN slams between them.

You’ve got
#1 Barty with 1
Kuznetsova with 2
#26 Muguruza with 2
#11 Serena with 23
Stosur with 1
Sharapova with 5
#5 Kerber with 3

As if that’s not bad enough then you’ve got Dubai champ and #13 Bencic, Nottingham finalist and #22 Vekic , last years SFist and #18 Goerges, #30 Suárez Navarro, Rosmalen champ Riske and the always dangerous Kanepi.

Holy crap.

The top half of the draw is literally a battle royale. By the time the best one will get to the final she'll be exhausted. So I guess someone from the bottom part of the draw will take it all.

Crazy how this seems to happen fairly regularly. Like there's aways one absolutely loaded section of the draw. Although it's definitely due to inconsistency among some of the players. Some girls are not ranked where they should be, or rather they're not playing up to their potential. And we see the effects of this anyway because it's not very often that all of the players match their seedings.

Not optimistic for Garbine's chances...always talking about how her ranking means nothing. You don't do yourself any favors when your ranking is so low that you end up playing the #1 seed in the third round. Would be a winnable match, but we'll see what happens.

G.O.A.T.
Let's see how Osaka responds to no longer being the world #1, and not having to carry the burden of being seeded #1. She lost to Putintseva a few weeks ago, so you have to favour her in that match, but I do hope Osaka shows up.

Lol you serious? Osaka will be a significant favorite against putintseva

i think its cruel that coco gauff and venus have been drawn against each other and one will have to lose and while i like you coco, i really do, i'm here for venus. it sucks because she talked about playing her idols either serena or venus but why the 1st round?
