So much has been made this year about the fact that Serena and Venus Williams are once again one and two in the rankings. But in my mind, at Wimbledon, you have to say they're one (that being Venus) and 1a (Serena). Venus has been having one of the best years on tour so far this season and I don't see why that success can't continue at the Slam she's been most prolific at. Expect her to add to her collection of Venus Rosewater dishes. But first, how I see the tournament going:
The Fourth Round
Serena Williams (1) vs. Maria Sharapova (16) Na Li (9) vs. Agnieszka Radwanska (7) Caroline Wozniacki (3) vs. Jie Zheng (23) Aravene Rezai (18) vs. Samantha Stosur (6) Maria Kirilenko (27) vs. Justine Henin (17) Kirsten Flipkens vs. Jelena Jankovic (4) Vera Dushevina vs. Marion Bartoli (11) Melanie Oudin vs. Venus Williams (2)
Sharapova vs. Li Zheng vs. Stosur Henin vs. Jankovic Bartoli vs. V. Williams
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
