Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31826224 Serena Williams Serena+Williams Tennis

She may, at 31, be playing the best tennis of her life. Serena was sublime in Paris and is the defending champion at the All England Club. She has also won three of the past four Grand Slam events. Doubt her at your peril. She's the clear favorite.

That 2004 title gets a little further in the past all the time, but the world No. 3 still has the game to recapture that glory. After a three-year dry spell, she's back in the conversation of favorites at every Grand Slam event and was a finalist again at Wimbledon in 2011. Look for her to be there at the end.

Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31823322 Victoria Azarenka Victoria+Azarenka Tennis

Azarenka has broken through in the past two years and officially become a player you need to watch in every tournament. She has won the past two Australian Open titles and has made the semifinals at Wimbledon the past two years, the US Open final last year, and the semifinals at Roland Garros just a few weeks ago.

Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31826225 Petra Kvitova Petra+Kvitova Tennis

She was somewhat of a surprise as the 2011 champion, beating Victoria Azarenka in the semifinal and Maria Sharapova in the final. Though her Grand Slam results since have not been stellar, she's No. 8 in the world and has certainly shown the track record on grass to be a threat.

Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31823320 Agnieszka Radwanska Agnieszka+Radwanska Tennis

Radwanska is No. 4 in the world behind only Serena, Maria and Vika. She was also the runner-up in 2012. The problem? She's just 5-25 against those three players in her career, so she better hope for some breaks on the way to a potential title run.

Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31826228 Sara Errani Sara+Errani Tennis

It will be hard to forget the brutalization she suffered in Paris at the hands of Serena Williams, but Errani is still a top five player and has been solid the past two years at Grand Slam events. She has never been past the third round at Wimbledon and will likely only last until she runs into one of the big hitters.

Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31826229 Angelique Kerber Angelique+Kerber Tennis

No. 7 in the world and a semifinalist last year. That's good enough to put Kerber among the top contenders in a women's field lacking in star power outside of the top two or three. She has been ousted in the fourth round in each of her past three majors since that 2012 run at Wimbledon.

Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31826226 Ana Ivanovic Ana+Ivanovic Tennis

Yes, Ana Ivanovic! It seems like eons since her 2008 French Open win, but all of a sudden she's knocking on the door of the top 10 again. After falling off the radar somewhat in recent years, she's back in the conversation and has done no worse than the fourth round at a major since the 2012 French Open. She was a semifinalist at the All England Club in 2007.

Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31823323 Laura Robson Laura+Robson Tennis

Much has been made of British men's tennis' woes at Wimbledon. It's not much better for the women. Virginia Wade was the last to win there, all the way back in 1977. Robson may not have the chops to end the skid yet, but she's playing the best tennis of her career and the future is bright for the 19-year-old. You know the home crowd will be on her side.

Tennis 199 43 Wimbledon: 10 women to watch 31826227 Sloane Stephens Sloane+Stephens Tennis

As an American web site, we are perhaps being generous here. Stephens earned "player to watch" status after her run to the semifinals at the Australian Open and has managed to stay in the news thanks to a feud (friendship?) with Serena Williams. But she has a long way to go convince the world that she can be a regular contender at these things.
