Or maybe just nerves? OK guys, we all know that’s not urine! (But is it?!!) Just a hard-working, sweaty Andy sweating it up on Middle Sunday before what is to be the biggest week of his life. (Getty)

On the airwaves: After going silent on the radio front for a couple of months, the TSF team is back to check in on Middle Sunday talking about Venus Williams fashion, Bethanie Mattek-Sands “fashion,” the big noise about grunting (we’re over it! — the arguing, that is), the tennis bags for SW19, the return of the Williams sisters and more musings from both TSF East and West in this installment of our podcast series. | TSF Vault: More podcasts
Any cream, too? There’s been plenty of talk around Andy Murray‘s chic white HEAD bag that has been sprinkled with his favorite messages from fans through a creative Facebook campaign his racket maker has put on. But for Dunlop, it’s going the traditional — but fun — route with Dominika Cibulkova‘s bag for this year’s Championships, making her a colorful bag adorned with miniature strawberries for Domi, and Domi only. The bag isn’t for sale, Dunlop told TSF, but it looks great strapped over the diminutive Czech’s shoulder. The next scalp she’d like to throw in that bag? That’d be world no. 1 Caroline Wozniacki. The two are second on Court No. 2 (after Sharapova) on Monday. | More: Women’s draw
Sister act, 2011: Venus and Serena have both made their way through the first week of Wimbledon with their respective bumps — we’ll call it “character building” — and are currently on track to meet in the championship match at Wimbledon for the first time since 2009 (they met in the finals in 2002, 2003, 2008 and 2009). While both would have to win an impressive three more matches each to get to the finals, they certainly have proven to be unpredictable before, and long layoffs for each has put their games into a realm of unknown.
So, what do you think: which Williams can win Wimbledon? Tell us below.
