Tennis: Wimbledon 2011 by FOD(m): 3:37am On Jun 20, 2011
The third grandslam of the year starts today. The big three (perhaps four) in the men's game, look set to dominate the other players again. Will we have another Nadal - Federer final? Can Djokovic, Murray spoil the party? The other pretenders are Tsonga, Berdych, Soderling, Del Potro.

The women's game is still as unpredictable as it has been for sometime. The return of the Williams sisters sure adds to the glamour to the event, but can they reach the finals? Kim is ruled out with an ankle injury. Who else is there to talk about? Wozniacki? Li?

Who takes this year's title?

Do people watch tennis only during the slams?

Serena in particular has not played any tennis in over 10 months! Coming back from a foot injury and surgery for an embolism. . . and you're claiming she is "not up to her game" this season? The same woman who just thrashed Maria Kirilenko 2 and 3 to reach the round of 16? lol *shaking my head*
