Few matches and the calm before the storm. Tough ones though... all matches should be close

2. Halep (because I like her better smiley )
3. Paes Stepanek

Halep is a proper player, breath of fresh air on women's tour.
It's amazing how talent shines on grass, even this slow one!
And conversely, it makes the bashers/rigid movers look even more out of place.

And baby-Sharapova wins...what a nasty piece of work going to the umpire to moan she wasn't ready to receive (she was!) for at least 2-3 minutes when Halep was serving, being 00:40 down with three match points to save.
Also, such ugly, driving technique on her ground strokes...
I only saw second half of the second set, but there appears to have been a lot of drama in the first set esp during TB.
Apparently somebody in the crowd fainted...and Halep twisted her ankle?

What a shame....Kvitova-Halep would have been a nice final.

I, for one, am happy Bouchard won. She has been the most consistent player in slams this year (all SFs). She is the most aggressive player on tour. She has a powerful forehand. She receives almost 100% of the service points inside the baseline. OK, Halep's backhand is better, but I think Halep's best surface is clay, not grass, so I'm not surprised of the result at all. Kvitova vs. Bouchard final should be a cracker, and I'm hoping Bouchard can win Wimbledon (the real one, not the Junior title like two years ago) this year for her maiden slam!

 Hi T, why are you not a fan? Surely she must be talented if she is receiving almost 100% of the service points inside the baseline, don't you think?

bouchard did put her hand up,plus she is one hell of a lot better than shriekapova 
regardless,i hope serena gets better soon so she can remind everyone of their place 
wimbledon final without her is rather boring

I think she is too big....for a young player. Her arms are huge and it puts me off. I know a bit shallow a reason but this is how I feel.

If you think, her arms are huge, have a look at her neck.  Yikes And no, I don't think it's shallow actually, if it's not for aesthetic reasons only, because I don't believe it is natural.

I was also somewhat sad that Bouchard who is poised to become the next Sharapova (watch out Maria, your time has passed.) won so easily. Halep had her worst match of the tournament, errors piling up when she is usually so consistent, I suspect, something was wrong with her. Like her for the fluid easy movement, no grunting, precise shots (usually, not yesterday).
