Strange Incidents on the WTA Tour

On this thread post strange incidents that have occurs on the WTA tour.

Here are some I can think of:


Mauresmo winning the Australian Open 2006 with 3 retirements

Ana Ivanovic winning Canberra 2005 as a Qualifier defeating Melinda Czink (LL) in the final after Ivanovic already defeated Czink in the qualifying!

Jelena Dokic and Alexandra Stevenson playing each other in the 1st Round of Wimbledon Qualifying 2006. The last time they played each other on grass was the Quarterfinal of the maindraw in Wimbledon (which Stevenson won in three sets). In 1999, Dokic and Stevenson were both qualifiers, in 2006, they both recieved WC's into the qualifying draw.

Kim Clijsters becoming the first player to reach World No.1 before winning a Grand Slam

Ted Watts forgetting the F-ING SCORE @ Wimbledon

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Re: Strange Incidents on the WTA Tour

-Anne Kremer vs. Jennifer Hopkins (Amelia Island)- was played on a court where the service boxes were off by THREE FEET!!! As a result both playes kept double faulting. It got so bad that Jennifer finally spoke out but the ref said everything was fine. After the match they realized they goofed big time. The result was final however, since it was determined they were both at the same disadvantage.

-Venus was penalized a game point for twice shedding her hair beads on the court. "I'm not causing a disturbance here!" she screamed to the chair umpire, then she began to weep and eventually lost the match to Lindsay.

-Michael Llodra killed a bird in mid flight while serving.

-Steffi beating Natasha Zvereva 6-0,6-0 in 34 minutes at the French Open Final in 1987.

-Justine winning the US Open then being introduced as "Christine" to the crowd as he's giving her the trophy.

The other famous ones:
-Lindsay beating Sharapova 6-0,6-0 at Idian Wells
-Justine retiring at a slam final
-Justine and the hand incident
-JCap and Serena at the US Open

STEFWHIT'S HALL OF FAME
Greatest Singles Player of All Time: Steffi Graf
Simply the BEST: Serena Williams [Proud MEMBER OF RENA'S ARMY]
The REAL GOAT Rafael Nadal
Future Inductees: Clijsters, C.Evert, A.Agassi, A.Berasategui, N. Zvereva, I.Majoli, M.Safin, Li Na, VIKA, and Del Potro

Re: Strange Incidents on the WTA Tour

I must admit Ted Watts was pretty strange (he kept on having mind blanks while reffing matches)

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

Re: Strange Incidents on the WTA Tour

The most strange one this year for me:
Dementieva defeating all her Grand Slam upsetters (Schruff - AO, Peer - RG, Sharapova - Wimby, Jankovic - USO) in CHRONOLOGICAL order in Los Angeles.

Maria Sharapova
