    A very refined drink most associated with women of the upper class in England.

    I have been a tennis fan since the days of Borg, Connors, and McEnroe (who I now think is a great commentator). Unfortunately, I don't think Henman will ever win Wimbledon. I was happy Martina won her first round. My pick is probably Serena Williams and Roger Fedderer. But who knows, anyone can come out on top at a major.

    May I presume it's alcoholic??? Anything with mint should be good.

    I say that the men's draw is fairly wide open this year, and that just about anyone could win on the men's side. I'm expecting some shake ups this year.

    As traditional as strawberries and cream, Tim Henman has a wobble in the first week, almost losing to some obscure qualifier nobody has ever heard of. Usually he waits till the second or third round, but this year, he got it in early!
