Someone has to win this event. Brackets haven't simply been busted here; they're now mocking us. Predicting matches has been a fool's errand. Still, they will be providing a trophy this weekend. The best bet to win it for the women? Who knows? Stephens won Monday to reach her first Wimbledon quarterfinal, where she'll face 2007 finalist Marion Bartoli. Petra Kvitova is a past champion. But if Lisicki can come close to replicating the level of play she showed against Williams, she will be even bigger news on Centre Court again in five days.
