In sports, Tennis on July 1, 2010 at 1:25 pm

Wimbledon 2010 is now peaking.

Ladies’ singles semifinal matches are being played today at centre court. 1st match is between 21st seed Vera Zvonareva of Russia and unseeded Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria. The second semifinal is between top seed Serena Williams of USA and unseeded Petra Kvitova of CZE.

All seeded players except Serena have already been ousted. Serena Williams, the top seed, is thus an outright favorite to win the crown in absence of any worthwhile opposition.

Men’s singles semifinal line up, on the other hand, is as per seedings except the top seeded Roger Federer who was defeated by Berdych in quarter final. Semifinals are scheduled between 2nd seed Nadal & 4th seeded Murray and 3rd seed Djokovic & the giant killer Berdych.

Predicting with certainty for men’s singles will be foolhardy as all of them are capable of defeating anyone on their day.
