    So is anyone else out there totally in love with Tim Henman right now too? He's so hot right now. I am hoping that he is finally able to pull it off this year - bring some excitement into a sport that has become stale with the big two trading championships. If not Tim, then I fall back to my #1 James Blake.

    Other thoughts? Who do you think will win it this year?

    Sorry, dude. Tim Henman winning Wimbledon? It was great that he pulled out his first match over Moya, but he could never get past either Fed or Rafa. Stale? I think this is the most exciting time in men's tennis since the McEnroe-Borg era. Blake is nice eye candy, but he (like the rest of the tour, save Nadal) is clueless against Federer. The women's tournament is much more unpredictable.

    There is a big difference in what title you are looking at for the men. The "actual" champion WILL eventually be Federer or Nadal. Roddick has a slight chance, but he's just not on his "A" game these days. Djokovic also has a great chance of going far, but doesn't have it quite yet for a grass title. Karlovic could potentially ace his way deep in the tournament in much the same way that Krajicek or Ivanesevic did. But it's still pretty much a 3-man shot for the top spots: Fed, Rafa, and A-Rod.

    Now as for the other title, the cutest guy champion, Blake rates high. Djokovic is phenomenally cute with a way hot body. And Rafa is right up there too. Safin has always had the total good looks package as well. Fernando Gonzales... if he asked me to come on tour with him to carry his bag, I would turn in my resignation letter within the hour!!

    Fed? Not with that face or body. Roddick? From the neck down, a definite yes (check out some of his pictures from the tournament on Yahoo). But sorry... Henman might once have ranked in the top cuties. But like his tennis, he's a bit past his prime. Bravo to him for pulling out a great win against Moya. :)

    That Henman/Moya match was EPIC. I hope it didn't take too much out of Henman because I'd love to root for an underdog like him, but I don't think he really has a chance.

    Henman's best chances were years ago, sadly. It's a shame that they've slowed down the grass because with the high bounces, they don't help out his serve and volley game at all.

    Honestly, I think that the title is Roger's to lose. Andy is going to have to serve out of his ass in order to defeat Roger on grass. Hopefully, Jimmy & Co. will come up with a way to trump Roger's chipping returns since Roddick at the net is like watching a cow on ice.

    As for Rafa, *shrug* ... He had a great run last year. I'd like to see him do well, but I think that a big server is going to eat him alive on grass.

    I think that Novak can contend on this surface. His backhand up the line is going to be a great weapon on this surface. I predicted a Novak-Federer final with my brackets and I'd love to see the Sexy Serb get to the final.

    I hope someone else will step up to the plate and knock the Champ off. Never really followed Henmans carrer yet I was into his match with Moya. It was wierd to actually see a top player serve and volley...and actually win points doing it.

    For the Men's singles - Roddick / Djokovic. Ladies are kinda hard to guess.. lol.. there's Justine Henin who is really strong and very consistent.. while a young Serb Ana Ivanovic is really trying to win her first Grand Slam title... Sharapova and the Williams Sisters are powerful players as well. ***scratches head*** its a tough game for the ladies. Its great to watch the William Sisters playing doubles. Today, Serena has defeated Hantuchova. Thought Serena was going to withdraw since she was kinda injured (cramps) but she's a fighter.

    I would love to play with someone HOT and good in tennis.. haha.. i am about 5.0

    For the mens` singles,I`d say Federer or Nadal.For the ladies`,it`s more open,but Henin has to be a good bet.I afraid Tim Henman`s best chance was a few years ago.Unfortunately,there was this guy called Sampras around as well!
