Wimbledon

My predictions

1) It will rain.
2) It will rain even more.
3) Roger Federer will NOT win (hoho).

I'm really hedging my bets with that last one, but I have a funny feeling he won't do it.

Of course when he pulls up in the final and wins 6-0 6-0 6-1 I will look like a right idiot.

I don't know. It's just one of those funny feelings.

As long as it's not a Sampras wanna-be. If I see another Wimbledon championship win simply by Aces...that'll be it.

I like a dominant serve-volley type player. Its the nature of wimbledon.

Maybe Henman will finally pull one through.

I'm tired on jinxing my favourites (sorry Chech Republic) so I will keep my hopes and fears to myself

Didn't you guys know?

Federer already won.

They are just playing it to keep the Dukes of Windsor busy for 2 weeks during the year.

Some interesting first-round ties, and interesting potential second-rounders too...

The Brit players have got some terrible draws - I think Henman is due to meet Federer in the second round. Oh dear! Bye bye Tiger Tim!
