The only memories I have are of the Williams sisters, Amelie Mauresmo, and Martina Hingis.
I was genuinely happy when Amelie finally won her first slam! She played great throughout the two weeks and she was the last women standing. She thoroughly deserved the trophy.
Martina Hingis coming back onto her best surface. With little match play, she managed to get to the quarter finals and take Kim Clijsters to three sets. She's going to do even better in 2007 methinks.
1] Venus giving me a heart attack.
Thats the worst I've ever seen her play. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse it did. First her forehand went, then her serve, then her backhand. Her game gradually broke down! And at that point it was obvious that it was her first competitive match in over four months. She also played a fiesty player in the form of Pironkova who hit some magnificent winners. So props to her. Ironically, even though this was Venus' worst match, her interview was the best. She showed that she can rise above any negative situation that there is, and that she doesn't take any shit from the dumbass media. Her last quote was just
2] Serena losing against Daniella.
Serena tanked that match; she knew she wasnt physically fit to play against the top players [she would have played Maria in the next round had she had won]. She saved three match points when she was down 1-6 5-6 0-40 and thus was able to force it into a tie break, which shows that she was mentally tough. However, facing a fourth match point [at 6-6 [5-6] in the tiebreak], Serena hit Daniellas weak serve out wide to give Daniella the match. Even before hand, Daniellas support group seemed worried when Serena saved those match points and even Mary Carillo said that she "expected her [Serena] to turn it around". The moment Serena hit that forehand out wide I was thinking it was so unlike her just to give up. She really didn't care which was the worse part.
Justines retirement! Enough said.
