And accidentally continue taking something that is not a PED because WADA couldn't bother to inform their athletes in a proper fashion simply does not warrant a harsher punishment.

Re: Worst Choke Ever!!!!

Ouch.

Didnt Chanda Rubin beat Jana Navotna one year at the French Open after coming back from 5-0 40-0 in the second or final set? That has got to be the worst choke!

It's Szavay player who choke here... but somehow she regroup (with opponent help obviously) and won at end. If Szavay not win this "Underdog Party" tournament she very badly waste her time before hardcourt season and Olympics.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
