In all my days of seeing Grand Slam draws, this Wimbledon women's draw might just be the most potentially imbalanced draw I've ever seen.

And the weight is all in the bottom half, which is unbelievably strong, especially if everyone is healthy and playing well.

Talk about challenging: The bottom half has the women's champions of the past five years -- Maria Sharapova (2004), Serena Williams (2003 and 2002) and sister Venus (2001 and 2000). It also has Justine Henin-Hardenne, this year's French Open champion, as well as the runner-up at Roland Garros, Mary Pierce.
