Serena Williams sometimes likes to "play her way into" a major. She will certainly get a good workout in the first round of Wimbledon, when she plays Kaia Kanepi. Former Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo has her work cut out for her too, as she faces Ashley Harkleroad in the opening round. And 2007 finalist Marion Bartoli, who has been suffering from a sore wrist and thought she might have to withdraw, plays Sabine Lisicki, which could also be a bit of a task.
Ana Ivanovic, Maria Sharapova, Jelena Jankovic, and Venus Williams have less complicated first rounds than the aforementioned stars.
