Thumbs up Who has exceeded your expectations so far in 2006?

If we are going to have a thread to bash players that have so far dissapointed in 2006, lets also have one to say which players have exceeded our outlook for them at the beginning of 2006. I'll list some:

Mauresmo: no way in hell did I think she would win 2 of the first 3 GS

Petrova: I have really low expectations for Nadia so even her injury plagued season has exceeded my original expectations

Schnyder: I thought she woulda been out of the top 10 by now but she just keeps playing and playing and hanging in

Vaidisova: As much as I hate to admit it, I did not think she would be Top 10 or in the SF of a slam in 2006

Li: QF of a slam and knocking on the door of the Top 20

Mauresmo has exceeded mine, for sure.
martina's return has been thunderous : she has done better than I thought she would!
Vaidisova : I thought it would be Ivanovic that would have made top 10 this year instead
Petrova : winning 4 titles, beating mauresmo and jhh to get two of them
canuck girls beating the argentinian girls in fedcup

GO HABS GO

GO all Canuck players GO

Amelie...I knew she had a slam in her, but damn winning two in one year is amazing for someone who has been critized over and over again as being a head case.

mauresmo, petrova, kuznetsova, safina, jankovic after her 10 match losing streak and struggles in late 2005.

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze

Mauresmo: 2 slams, that's all I need to say.
Petrova: I was stunned. 4 titles, 2 of them being tier 1
Schnyder: I think she just keeps getting better with time.

mauresmo-2/3 slams i would not have bet a penny on it happening but good on her

li-slam QF lookin like a possible top 20 year end ranking, i knew she was capable but i didnt think she'd do it this year

pennetta-OK so she hasnt won a title and hasnt beat any of the top players but top 20 and although she has her poor tournys she is becoming more consistent + i wouldnt have bet on her winning more points than sharapova in their match at wimby

peer-3 titles out of 3 finals, 4th round at RG should have got to the QF-impressive

myskina-she looks to be somewhere near her best which is great, i didnt expect it so soon

molik-hello, she's playing!

The one that comes to mind more than anyone is Mauresmo. I fully expected Justine to win both Australia and Wimbledon. It's been a pretty big surprise.
