Who Will Win Wimbledon?

Wimbledon, the world's oldest tennis tournament, kicks off next week at the All England Club in South West London and for the 40th year in a row, Rolex will be the official time piece.  

The big question is: Will this end up as another battle royale between the world's two greatest tennis players, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Federer, perhaps the greatest thing to come out of Switzerland since Rolex itself, is the favorite to win. Not only is the grass-court grand slam his bread and butter, he sat out the French Open so as to be in tip-top condition.

While Nadal is the undisputed King of Clay, he's not exactly a slouch on grass, having won two Wimbledon's in the past. Also, never underestimate an island boy (he was born and raised on Mallorca.) Will these kings be content to rule their respective realms, will Nadal pull one out, or will a new star emerge all together? Time will tell.
