I thought Naomi was one of your girls
 Yes. Only because I hated how people ridiculed her for taking a picture by a condom machine... :) :) She was saving lives, you know. :)
The former under-18 UK girls’ champion remains fiercely unrepentant about what she claims was an innocent girls’ night out seven years ago that almost ruined her career and triggered a devastating family row.

The scandal was caused when she posted a photo of herself on a social networking site posing provocatively in a minidress next to a condom machine in a toilet. It caught the attention of the press and sparked the wrath of the Lawn Tennis Association, which promptly stripped her of her funding, throwing the future of her career in jeopardy.
And when I looked closer, I liked her serve. It's very underrated. It what keeps her around the top-100. But she has no game to beat top players. She has no defense and her movement got to be one of the worst.
I still like her despite all that. Not everyone of my girl is a slam winning material. Some girls I like for various reasons.

What not to like about Collins? :) :)
She is a no-nonsense, fearless, smart and educated girl with a well placed powerful serve. That should be enough.

Hard for me to think of Stephens as "just a one-dimensional baseliner with a forehand and place nice "D". Her game is not dominating." Not when she won a slam and made the finals of another in the last 10 months. She may be inconsistent, but she is more than a one-dimensional baseliner when she wants to be.

ASHLEY NDEBELE: Petra Kvitova
She loves playing on grass and has two Venus Rosewater Dishes to show for it. She is in the loaded top half of the draw that includes defending champ Muguruza and French Open champ Halep, but her lefty serve should help her power through.

STEVE TIGNOR: Serena Williams
Yes, she had to pull out of Paris. Yes, she hasn’t had played grass-court matches in two years. Yes, she’s seeded 25th and could face the fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina early. But would you pick anyone in the draw to beat Serena?
Hey Steve, you asked the right question. Love it.
Bonus question: what round will Serena Williams advance to?

JOEL DRUCKER: Final

ED MCGROGAN: Fourth round

NINA PANTIC: Fourth round

STEVE FLINK: Quarterfinals

ZACH COHEN: Semifinals

ASHLEY NDEBELE: Fourth round

STEVE TIGNOR: Champion

I legit have no clue who's going to win. There isn't a clear favorites especially because it's grass.

No, she is not. She took a break to rest for Wimbledon.... (unless you have an interview from her or something legit).

Third seed Petra Kvitova withdrew from Eastbourne before her third-round match against Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska because of a hamstring injury.

The Czech had her right thigh strapped during her second-round win over Kateryna Bondarenko on Tuesday.

Kvitova, ranked eighth in the world, said she felt the injury during her title win in Birmingham.

"With Wimbledon around the corner I couldn't take the risk of making it worse by playing," Kvitova, 28, said.

"Although I played with tape in my match yesterday, when I woke up this morning it felt worse."

Kvitova has won Wimbledon - which begins on 2 July - twice and has claimed a tour-leading five WTA titles this year.
