Top seeds gear up as Wimbledon starts today

London:

Like Tiger Woods and Roger Federer, there may just be a new friendship on the cards! Top seed Rafael Nadal & Rory McIlroy, The new US open champion says that he used to look up to Tiger but now he would rather be more like Nadal. While the top seed at Wimbledon says that he's taking inspiration from Rory's US open charge.


The 125th anniversary of the Wimbledon Championships is largely going to be about these four players in the men's draw. Roger Federer, Rafale Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

Federer's run on clay was unbelievable. Thus making him even more dangerous ahead of Wimbledon, where's he's looking to equal Pete Sampras' record of 7 titles.

Can Rafael Nadal win more Grand Slams than Roger Federer? We may've all debated about this sometime or the other. But this is what the man himself has to say - " I don't know. We can dream about a lot of things. For me it's a dream, for you it may not, you may see it from a different perspective. In my opinion it is very difficult to repeat 3 Grand Slams in a row.

In the women's draw, all eyes will be on defending champion Serena Williams, who's making a comeback after a year and has been seeded 8th this time. 

"Pretty much similar preparation, but having to workout a little harder because I'm starting from zero. Before this I wasn't starting from zero," Serena said.

But Nicolas Mahut vs John Isner is definitely going to be the match to watch out for in the 1st round. Last year, they took 11 hours to complete a match. Any bets on how it's going to take this time!
