What a f--king crazy grand slam it has been...
Let's make a list of all the things that have happened:
*Both defending champs JCF and JHH out in the second round to unseeded players - has never happened I believe.
*Top men's seed, Roger Federer, out in the third round in straights
*Top women's seed, Justine Henin-Hardenne, out in second round - hasn't happened for awhile
*Agassi loses in the first round to a player who had never won a tour match
*All American men gone after the second round - been a long time since that happened
*Lisa Raymond comes back from 0-6 0-5 30-30 to win
*Stephanie Foretz saves 3 match points to beat Dechy in the first round, then loses the next round to Talaja despite having 3 match points
*Navratilova returns to singles to lose to a girl half her age in straight sets. Age difference was about 30 years
, must be a record.
*Marat Safin drops his shorts during his match because he "felt like it"
*The longest match in the history of men's tennis: Santoro def. Clement 16
14 in the 5th set.
*4 men from Argentina in the quarterfinals
*3 men who have reached at least the semis of Wimbledon, quarterfinalists?!?
*Jie Zheng first player from China to advance to the quarters
*Williams Sisters both lose in the quarterfinals (first time they both lost on the same day or the same round)
- 3/4 of Venus' losses have been to a Russian
- Capriati beats Serena 2x in a row (first time since 2001)
- First time Serena has not advanced to the semifinals since Wimbledon 01'
*All 4 favorite women (Sharapova, Mauresmo, V&S) in the quarterfinals lose
*First time that no top 4 women's seed advance to the semifinals since I dunno when.
*2 Russian women in the semifinals
*For the first time since the 2002 Australian Open the finalist won't be all
Williams or all Belgian.
*Tim Henman in the semi's here and not at Wimbledon and comes back from 2 sets to 0 down twice?!?!?!
*Kim Clijsters cheers on Xavier Malisse and the very next round cheers against him for her fiance Hewitt
*First ever all Russian GS Final?!?!?
Am I missing anything?
