Top ranked Djoikovic and Williams will return to the All-England Club after 12 months and will try their best to defend their titles. In the men's draw Novak Djoikovic is touted to take it all the way to the finals. He is celebrating his 200 th week as world's number 1 in the ATP rankings. He has won last four grand-slams and has shown strength and consistency. He is also injuree-free and at the best of his fitness. His routine consists of stretching followed by a ninety minute court practice everyday.
Defending champion Serena Williams heads to the championship seeking her 22nd grand slam win. By winning Wimbledon last year, she created a 21-4 win-loss record in Grand Slam finals. A calendar Slam was waiting at the US Open, her home major. She is still the biggest force to reckon with in women’s tennis, the current world No.1 and the favorite to win any tournament she chooses to enter. But in a body afflicted with small injuries, years of workload, lack of match time (she has played only five events so far this year) and the burden of history, Williams may be the most vulnerable she has been in the past couple of years. How these players perform is what we will have to watch out for. Currently the grass-court is facing heavy rains, which has delayed the matches. What's to see is how the players maneuver around and try to win the coveted trophy.
