Wimbledon: 1st Round Predictions for Day 1

The first two days of Wimbledon are probably the most manic, crazy and exciting days during the whole year! Tomorrow's scheduling has thrown up a number of surprises with Tomas Berdych put on the centre court schedule over Roger Federer.  On paper, court number one has the best line-up of matches with Roger Federer neatly sandwiched between the two most intriguing first round matches from both the mens and womens draws.  Centre Court still boasts much interest with Novak Djokovic starting the defence of his title followed by Roland Garros champion, Maria Sharapova.

For the first two days I will be blogging with the highlights of the action and then from the second round, I will be previewing the best matches for each day along with my predictions.  For these first two days there is just too much going so I am going to sit back and enjoy (when i'm not working!)... still can't believe it starts TOMORROW!!!!

Ready... Play
