Ana, there was Martina and Kim. Without Kim's accident, she would have won it I believe. Anna was next. There were a LOT of hot top players there. But INJURIES, injuries, injuries

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

Anna in Moscow, even at the semis stage I would have bet my life she could never win the tournament

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Bondarenko's win completely surprised me, but i'd also have to pick Mauresmo at the Oz open. I beleived that she would never win a gs, and she proved me wrong.

OTOH, i was most happy with Ana's win in Montreal

I reckon Bondarenko's was the most surprising. paszek's comes in as a close second.

I would think that Marion Bartoli winning Auckland was a huge shock. She lost in ITF's at the end of last year and was not in good shape. Throw in a very strong draw.
