Calling all Tennis lovers. The first grand slam tournament is underway. Will Djokovic and S.Williams hold on to their titles and add up to their grand slam tallyor witness a major upset? Djoka is at the top of his game at the moment but with likes of Murray and Federer in remarkable form, he might have his work cut out for him. Hoping Nadal surprises and and upsets them all cool

Female tennis on the other hand is more unpredictable and less exciting. An unneeded player can come out of nowhere and cause major upset. Still, its looking good for S.Williams as she goes all out to defend her title.

Go Federer... the most artistic, beautiful, entertaining player in the world of Tennis. i hope this will be the first grand slam of the year for the living legend with an eye on the Olympics gold

Wishing the williams sisters luck...i never knew venus has moved this up in the ranking. One advice though; beware of [size=14pt]13. Roberta Vinci (ITA) [/size]who sent Serena to an early vacation last year

I'm for Roger Federer and Sharapova to win. But hard court isn't so much their fort, they are more versatile on grass. embarassed

WTA- watch out for young Swiss, "Belinda Bencic"

ATP- Novak Djokovic will surely wrap up the title.
