Breakfast(s) at Wimbledon

With action scheduled to begin in just a few hours, I am curious who everyone is rooting for at The Championships. For the first time in ages I can honestly say I would be happy with any of these four winning, although in a weird way it makes the exercise somewhat less compelling.  On the women’s side, I prefer Pliskova because she’s the best player (and a former No. 1) to have never won a major. But Barty is a doll and I love her game, so have no complaints with her coming out on top. For the men, it would be fantastic to see someone as nice and hunky as Berrettini win his first major — and thus set an example for his peers. But it seems unlikely given the relentlessness of Djokovic, whom I would be thrilled to see tie up the most majors record, and essentially put the GOAT debate to rest once and for all. Spectators ready? Play!

I will be rooting for Ash. She seems like such a lovely person. Pliskova just leaves me cold whenever I watch her. Dull and emotionless. The only positive is seeing that hunk of a husband and Sasha her coach!
