Here are five female players to watch out for at 2015 Wimbledon championships:

Serena Williams:
The world number one and top seeded player, Serena Williams has dominated the women's tennis over the last decade. She is the oldest female player to hold the numero uno position in WTA. She has won 20 Grand Slam titles and two Olympic gold. The queen of grass court has won the first two Slams of 2015. A five times Wimbledon champion hasn't not reached the frouth roung here in the last two years.

Maria Sharapova: The number four seed Russian sensation made an early exit in the French Open 2015. Sharapova started the season by winning the Brisbane International, but lost to Serena Williams in the finals of Australian Open. Since then she bow out in two second round matches and two semi-final showdowns before winning in Rome. She won her first Grand Slam at All England Club when she was 17. Since then she played in Wimbledon final only once and failed to reach even the quarter-finals in the past eight years.

Petra Kvitova: The world number two and second seed is the two time Wimbledon champion. Known for her big serves and powerful left-handed groundstrokes, she has won sixteen career singles titles. She had a difficult campaign so far this year. She enters Wimbledon as the defending champion and will hope to win it again. Kvitova was scheduled to begin the grass court season in Eastbourne but withdrew due to illness.

Lucie Safarova: Safarova had a difficult start to the season she broke into the top 10 in WTA rankings in the singles and recently lost French Open final. Safarova who is ranked as No. 1 in women's doubles, has won two Grand Slams this season and will eye a third alongside partner Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

Simona Halep: The number three seed at Wimbledon fared well in the Big W last year making it to the final and will hopefully try to win this time. Halep won three WTA titles in 2015. Due to dip in her form she was ousted in the second round in French Open. If she shows consistency at Wimbledon she can grab the All England crown.
