Wimbledon observations from Week One

1: Venus Williams should win the women's tournament if she continues to play as she did during the first week. A 127 mph serve is incredible, but the fact that it happened on her final first serve of the match is even more amazing.
2: Federer will probably win the men's draw again. Despite looking a little shaky in the firt match or so, he really turned it on by the end of the week.
3: Andy Murray is a sleeper. He's my dark horse, not to win, but to be a dark horse.
4: Andy Murray's brother looks awesome.
5: American families need to invest more in tennis lessons for their kids. American men are nothing but a pimple on the arse of the tennis world.
6: With Anna Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova out, I guess the time is nigh to pull for Nicole Vaidisova.
7: It seems as if Ivanovic's stay at number one may be short lived. Damn!
8: Women's tennis is by far the most interesting professional sport at the moment, and it has been amazing for the past several years. Yeah, I just wrote that in all sincerity.
