We are just days away from Wimbledon and the excitement is starting to build for the most famous event in the world of Tennis.
The women’s tournament this year has the makings of being a great battle and is sure to be full of entertainment.
Maria Sharapova is the current world number one and will go into the competition at SW 19 hopeful of picking up her second title here.
The Russian has not won at Wimbledon since 2005 though and was runner-up last year – making her desperate for success this time out. Sharapova has been in great form in 2012, reaching the Australian Open finals and going all the way and winning the French Open earlier in the month.
When it comes to Wimbledon, you can never write off the Williams sisters. They have nine titles at The All English Tennis Club between them and seem to love playing in this tournament.
Neither have progressed too far in the two Grand Slams this year but they are not to be taken lightly.
Last year’s winner Petra Kvitova is another contender to lift the trophy at SW 19, she was fantastic in the comeptition in 2011 and won the final in straight sets against Sharapova.
The Czech has made the semi-finals in the two Grand Slams earlier in the season so will be looking to go one better at Wimbledon this time out. With the knowhow of winning the tournament last year, Kvitova could be one to watch.
Kim Clijsters is a slight outsider which is no surprise given she has not competed in the tournament just once in five years. With her record in Grand Slams though, Clijsters is capable of causing a few surprises this year.
The likes of Victoria Azarenka, Li Na, and Samantha Stosur will also fancy their chances of going far in the competition.
