Me taking that lead has been because of my pick of Sabine rather than Li Na :)) As always my whole game here rests on how far Maria and Vika go :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

Questions to be asked Week 2 of Wimbledon?

1. Will we see another all Williams final?
2. Will Maria complete her comeback with the biggest win of her career?
3. Will Chris write a complete sentence without the word Sabine or Lisicki?   ..-)

1. I certainly hope not and at this stage am still very confident we won't.
2. That's the absolute dream and as you say it would easily be the biggest win of her career. Maria needs to keep the serve together and also hope there's not too much wind round to effect that toss and keep going for her shots. If all 3 happen then Maria has a great chance :shakey: :cheer:
3.  :rofl_2: I'm just very excited for her right now and especially after tipping her and wanting her to win a Slam a couple of years back to see all the injuries she's gone through, come back on the American hardcourts this year and be well outside the worlds top 200, and then come soo close to a big win in Paris over Zvonareva and the way that went I'm soooo keen to see her do really well and get her career back on track. And afterall after my 4 girls she's definitely the 1 right there :)

It happens when you've only got 6 to beat. If you were up against me alone, you would have clinched after 3R.

Champions xs picked - these are historically awful
Sharapova  3
Serena  2                  4R
Li          1                   2R
Pavlyuchenkova  1    1R



Too bad conchita and Chris have the same final. I still have points to get with Sharapova and Kvitova.
