Just as I did with Roland Garros, I'm taking a safe pick on the men's side and a long shot on the women's.
Men's Singles Champion: Novak Djokovic (1st seed, Serbia)
As the top seed and a former champion (2011), the Djoker would be a solid choice to take the title even if the draw gods had not smiled upon him. But smile they did. The rest of the Big Four - Andy Murray (2nd, UK), Roger Federer (3rd, Switzerland) and Rafael Nadal (5th, Spain) - are all on the other side of the draw. As such, Djokovic won't have to play any of them before the final. He is nowhere near the lock that Rafa is in Paris but he should be the man to beat.
Women's Singles Champion: Na Li (6th, China)
Because picking Serena Williams (1st, USA) is too easy right now. For starters, the Williams sisters own Wimbledon. Venus and Serena have each won the singles title five times and they've also won the doubles title together five times. Venus isn't playing this year so Serena isn't entered in the doubles draw which means she'll be well-rested. Plus, the 31-year-old is playing as well as she has in years, having just come off a title run at the French. Picking against her is crazy. I'm just the guy to do it...
Na Li is one of my favorites, a thoroughly charming player who has proven she can win Slams given the chance. Her title at Roland Garros in 2011 was one of the best stories in tennis of the past few years. If Williams stays hot, no one else stands a chance. If she falls, someone's gotta be there to pick up the pieces. Why not Li?
