It’s that time of the year when tennis fans, writers and armchair pundits get into the groove and talk about the most romanticized tennis championships. It’s time for Wimbledon! This year is no different; the usual scribes are talking about the chances of one Andy Murray of winning the crown. They say that Murray had the best clay court season of his career by taking a set off Rafa Nadal at the Monte Carlo Masters. So he is primed to win the crown, so they say. And then there’s the perennial favorite Roger Federer. He is considered by many as the player most likely to win the crown. This could be true, given the fact that the bulk of his grand slams were earned on the grass courts of London. Some writers are saying that Federer is on it again considering he had a confidence boost thanks to his performance during the clay season.
Former number ones Pete Sampras and Bjorn Borg thought that this is Federer’s time once again. Let’s see how this event unfolds, and methinks that this one is an exciting Wimbledon. This is the reason why I need to contact my cable operator, pronto. I need to watch the drama and see how far the top seeds can go. On a personal note, I see the winner as among the Top 4. Outside the Top 4, the other players have zero to negative chances of winning the championships. Oh yes, I’m rooting for Rafa Nadal. Following the logic of some scribes that Murray and Federer will win the crown owing to their explosive performance during the clay season, Rafa Nadal will win it BECAUSE HE WON ROLAND GARROS, no? But let’s wait and see. What we can be sure of is the fact that this is one heated Wimbledon ever!
