LONDON, England (—Today in round two at Wimbledon, 6th seeded Serena Williams of the USA takes on the 2007 Wimbledon junior champion Urszula Radwanska of Poland.

Williams won the ladies' singles title in 2002 and 2003 and will not want to lose to the 17 year old Wimbledon wildcard whom she has never faced before. Radwanska, ranked 190th in the world, will have ideas of an upset.

Serena Williams won Wimbledon in 2002 and 2003.

Novak Djokovic (SRB)[3] v. Marat Safin (RUS)
Safin is still a very talented player, one of the most talented on the ATP Tour, but Djokovic is playing at a higher level. If Djokovic can hit more winners than errors, he should advance past the big hitter Safin.
Winner: Djokovic

Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)[4] v. Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR)
Grass is not Kuznetsova's best surface but she should have enough game to beat Bondarenko if she is aggressive.
Winner: Kuznetsova

Roger Federer (SUI)[1] v. Robin Soderling (SWE)
Federer looks not as unstoppable as he has in recent years and Soderling prefers fast surfaces such as indoor courts. This could be a close match, but I think Federer will finish as the winner.
Winner: Federer

Ana Ivanovic (SRB)[1] v. Nathalie Dechy (FRA)
New world number one and French Open champion Ivanovic meets Dechy of France who has played the WTA Tour for more than ten years and has a ton of experience. Dechy would need Ivanovic to help her with errors in order to win.
Winner: Ivanovic

Urszula Radwanska (POL) v. Serena Williams (USA)[6]
Radwanska's older sister Agnieska upset world number three Maria Sharapova at last year's US Open. Williams is serving much better than Sharapova was at that time however and will be too tough to stop.
Winner: Williams

Samantha Stosur (AUS) v. Nicole Vaidisova (CZE)[18]
After enjoying success in her first few years on the tour, Vaidisova finds herself falling out of the top ten, in a slump and losing to players she used to beat with ease. I think however Vaidisova is working towards a return to good tennis.
Winner: Vaidisova
