I'd quite like to see Johanna Konta go on a good run this year, although hopefully the injury she picked up as Eastbourne doesn't affect her chances too much.

I'm going for Murray to hold his title. He hasn't played well recently but this is on grass and he's the holder and he'll be hard to beat I think. He'd play Nadal in the semis as 1 plays 4 and 2 plays 3 if it goes to form.

I think Andy Murray might retain the title. Roger Federer must be in decline now surely?

I thought that when he lost the Wimbledon final in 2015 that would be his last big shot at a Slam but he simply hasn't gone anywhere since & the fact he won his first Slam in over 4 years in Oz this year, plus this being his favoured surface historically, leads me to believe he has the edge!

I'm a big Murray fan, but I can't see him winning Wimbledon. Lack of form/ practice on grass, and a very competitive draw this year.

Fed fave for me.

Looking to see Konta get to the second week of Wimbledon providing that injury scare hasn't affected her.

Surely we will move on from the Federer-Nadal-Djokovic-Murray domination?

And the mass British exodus from the first round bar Murray & Konta begins with Laura Robson losing in straight sets.

Well now I understand why Wawrinka was 33-1. Quickest way I've ever thrown away a fiver!

The one time I can contribute to the Sports forum kink.gif

I'm not expecting Murray to retain the title, I'd be very pleasantly surprised if he did. My tip is probably Federer to win this year. Saturday could be quite a match if Djokovic vs. Del Potro happens!
