2006's Biggest Coincidences

What have been the biggest coincindences of 2006? For example, the same players drawing each other week after week etc.

In my opinion, the strangest were:
-Patty Schnyder drawing Antonella Serra Zanetti in Wimbledon first round, again!
-Dokic and Stevenson meeting in first round of Wimbledon qualifying , a rematch of 1999 quarter finals.

what are your thoughts?

That was the first "unknown" Bulgarian. Sesil was pretty damn well known when Venus lost to her!

I wouldnt go as far as to say that. Completely unknown? No. For the most part unknown... yes.

And definitely the Chanda Rubin vs. Patty Schnyder drawing eachother like 344653169 weeks in a row was the first thing that came to mind.
