I reckon the crown is hers for the taking this year. She's got as good a chance as any of the others. And she PROMISED that she wouldn't lose a second Wimbledon final if she ever got there again.

She's never played Flipkens before which is a pain, but has beaten Kvitova on grass.

The question now is whether Marion can win Wimbledon without dropping a set.

Marion was 100% correct btw commentators to come off for rain. It hammered down minutes afterwards.

Mazza has never played her before as best as I can see from H2H searches. That worries me. Flipkens looks a very decent rival on her current run.

She's certainly prospered from facing lower-ranked rivals, and has despatched them all in straight sets. She stands on the edge of doing something comparatively rare.

her route as it turned out was easy and I don't think you can deny it

that said, she's been awful all year and then swatted aside each opponent fairly easily so deserves credit

On the eve of the greatest occasion in sport, I find myself torn between my top 2 tennis girls. Do I cheer for Sexy Sabine, or the riddle, wrapped in a riddle, inside a mystery. all sealed inside a big pie that is Queen Marion.

Lest you mortals forget, Marion is responsible for the most incredible thing I've seen in 700 years of watching sports, i.e. her 1-6 7-5 6-1 'black swan event' demolition of Henin in the 2007 semis at Wimbledon - a match Marion simply could NOT win, but did, and by a mile. A jaw-dropping occasion, the last part of which happened at biblical speed, and caused the biggest I/R carnage ever seen on BF at that time.

So, I think the play is to just sit back, watch and enjoy what will hopefully be an unforgettable occasion. Have traded  up all outstanding bets for level green, and can now relax in front of my 168 inch plasma telly, which luckily I found just lying on the streets outside an electrical shop in Tottenham, August 2011.

My gut feeling is that Sabine will somehow find a way to win, maybe in 3, but it won't surprise me if Maitresse Marion will laugh last, loudest and longest. A happy girl is a dangerous girl, and I think her temperament is better. Her semi-final annihilation of Flip City suggested to me that the Pierce Brosnan fan is in a 'Live And Let Die' mode..... what does it matter to Marion, when she's got a job to do, she's got to do it well, she's got to give the other Mistress hell. When the going gets weird the weird turn pro.

May the best girl win. Whoever wins goes straight onto the highest peak of Mount Olympus.

Less than 4 hours till Mistress Marion bounds on to court to get her richly deserved coronation. Maybe before receiving the trophy she will turn her back on the presentation party, make a couple of air swipes as is her want and then turn round and salute her adoring audience. Then she will celebrate with 6 punnets of strawberries & cream and litres of Pimms.
