    Starts tomorrow. Coverage is at 7 a.m. EDT on the Tennis channel. (Not sure I'll be up for that).

    My picks: Nadal and Sharapova. I hope I'm wrong on the women.

    If it would be at all possible for Andy Murray to go into the second week, I would appreciate it.

    Also on ESPN2 at 7.

    Nadal still isn't ready to beat Federer on grass.
    Ana Ivanovic is about to become the superstar of women's tennis.

    Nothing like going out on a limb and picking the two top-seeds.

    DirecTV is doing the interactive every-match-possible thing on eight channels for the first five days, as well. No extra charge for DirecTV customers; cable customers are screwed as usual.

    I think you can do the same thing on ESPN360 as well, views of individual courts instead of relying on whatever ESPN wants to give you.

    That's assuming your Internet provider has signed up with and paid up front ESPN360. Many haven't.

    Well yeah. My office has though, so that's nice.

    I'm going with Federer and Serena. One safe, one a little crazy.

    I know he won't lose, but Roger is 0-2 lifetime against Dominik Hrabaty...
    I wonder how many other players have played Roger more than once and have either (a) never lost to him or even (b) have a winning record

    Ana Ivanovic will win and the hotness scale will forever be broken and no one will ever bring up Anna K again.

    I think if Nadal is going to win Wimbledon when Roger is still at the top, this is the year. Nadal just owned him this year (on clay) and Nadal went 5 in the final last year.

    Wimbledon always brings back good memories of watching "Breakfast at Wimbledon" with Dick Enberg. Tanner v. Borg; Connors v. Ashe; Connors v. Borg; McEnroe v. Borg; Cash v. Lendl; Becker v. Edberg; Stich winning, Stich!!!
