A look ahead to the ladies at Wimbledon.There are only three former champions in the draw, and two of them are named Williams!

The 2011 Wimbledon tournament maybe one of the most intriguing of the past several seasons. To use an old cliche, and say that it is wide open, hardly does justice to the many scenarios that could play out. There really is no obvious favorite, but there is a long list of potential winners. Even without the Williams sisters the tournament was shaping up as a bookies nightmare, and now that they have announced that they both plan to compete it has added a dynamic which should make the 2011 event extremely entertaining.

Serena and Venus will play the roles of upset opponents in the early rounds, and depending on the draw they might eliminate a couple of top ten players who had their sights on week 2 and the trophy. Serena will be seeded, but Venus won’t be. It’s quite possible that Venus could meet Stosur or Azarenka in the first round. Serena, who will be somewhere in the top 25,could knock-off just about any player in the first week on her way to week 2 and the quarter finals.

Before the Williams sisters confirmed their entry, Maria Sharapova, Kim Clijsters, Li Na and Caroline Wozniacki were on most experts short list of potential winners. Some lists included big serving Julia Goerges, Petra Kvitova and Andrea Petkovic. Ana Ivanovic has also been mentioned.
