Maria was evidently star of the show for most of the event. Her play was of a high standard. Her pictures were in all the media. Her interviews were witty. Her confident and classy defence were an object-lesson from an 18 year-old. Highest props to Masha!
Myskina's houdini-antics were notable.
Mirza and O'Donoghugh didn't really make much impact.
Justine arrived in a blaze of publicity and hype - and departed very quickly.
Amelie did her usual thing of winning easily in the early rounds, then losing a long tussle in the 2nd week.
Martina was just a publicity-hound, doing rent-a-quotes for all the papers.
I'd add in Cara Black and Mary Pierce as stars of the Womens events, performing well and providing exciting play.
Maybe also ..... Craybas?
