So the great Wimbledon Grand Slam Tournament in SW19 gets underway on Monday much more than strawberries and ice cream!
In the men's game we have the great Djokovic as number 1 seed he remains the one to beat. However Murray with one Grand Slam behind him and with last year's Olympic Gold medal achievement at Wimbledon he has the belief and confidence like never before, this will be his best chance yet! Not to forget or write off defending Champion Roger Federer (write him off at your peril!!) remember he has won more Grand Slams than any other player here, and despite press reports of his demise he remains a talented and fantastic Tennis player. Finally Nadal has made an amazing comeback from injury to win yet another French Open on clay recently to add even more spice.
In the women's game my o my was that good timing in the war of words between Williams and Sharapova? Serena decided to have a swipe at a player who is "pretty boring" because she always says at interviews things like "I am so lucky" "I am so happy" clearly aimed at Sharapova who just happens to be dating Serena Williams ex boyfriend the Bulgarian player Dimitrov. O dear the claws are out now as Sharapova has retaliated about the fact that Williams is dating her coach who is married with two children O dear... anyway back to the Tennis can anyone beat Serena? I have to say its not good for the women's game when a player can come back out of semi retirement to play for fun and then go 20-30 games unbeaten. We have our own Laura Robson and Heather Watson who continue to make good progress and there is tremendous potential in Donna Vekic the Croation who has only just turned 17 surely a star for the future. But for this year can anyone beat Serena? Tennis is such a great game we just Love it and Wimbledon has everything including rain like no other Grand Slam..
